At three o’clock last Sunday afternoon, I experienced a meal so holy, so spiritual it can heal the broken hearts and spoiled bellies of millions.

Owners, also wife and husband, Vincent and Arlene Williams unveiled this mastery in 2000. Ever since they’ve continued to heighten the expectations on how to define good fried chicken.

Honey’s Kettle is not your traditional Southern cookout, the meals are so rich and delectable it only takes a simple platter to make your day worthwhile. There are certain delicacies that make this Southern food restaurant the commander of fried chicken joints.

The experience is a whirlwind-the toothsome meal, homely service, and cultural atmosphere-from when you step in and when you exit its open doors. While entering, I was greeted comfortably with the music I personally jam to from my Spotify playlist or my parents play when immediate family is in town for a barbeque.

The choices are a wonder, you’ll stare in awe at the endless array of southern foods; you can order a thigh and biscuit meal as I did and add a side of rich rice and gravy or a whole bucket of chicken. The establishment has its own competitive twist, instead of Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles specialty of pairing succulent chicken with a saccharine buttermilk waffle, you can pair a stack of hotcakes with your country-fried chicken breast, again, along with any side of your preference.

The buttermilk biscuits are a novelty, the texture isn’t flaky or dry, but fluffy. You take one bite and descend into a gracious, heavenly whirlpool. Biting into the soft exterior comforted my taste buds and made my heart swell with everlasting jubilation. You can taste every ingredient, the thick and luscious buttermilk, the egg, yeast and flour which gives the gift its infamous rise. It’s soft like a pillow, which I recommend you lather with creamy, Southern butter and hot bee honey as an extra treat. Don’t waste any!

On the side of the register is a shrine of biscuit, pancake and waffle mix so whenever your belly can’t get enough of those hot cakes, biscuits or waffles, all you have to do is take the mix home and whip up a batch of either.

The chicken is beyond comparison to mediocre chicken joints. The chicken is better than your mom’s, dad’s even your grandma’s, who loves to slave over a stove to fulfill your foodie needs.

The crunch is purely a symphony, like opening a bag of chips, loud and deserving. The grease is slight, the skin is seasoned lightly, perfectly.

What separates Honey’s Kettle from other chicken joints is its authenticity; you aren’t served with an over greased, fully-skinned, empty void of “homestyle chicken” as you would be at your local Popeyes or Churches.

You know how you just need that one meal, that one meal that serves itself as a respite to your problems, your chaos, Honey’s Kettle has that meal stored in the deep fryers just for you. The meal will coax your belly with a protective layer of love. The service is impeccable; the wait is a nuisance, but it’s impossible to feign annoyance when the menu is enchanted with all the foods you wish you could eat daily without contracting high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Any time you wish to sit with a meal that will cause you to evade your daily duties and commitments, just waltz into Honey’s Kettle with an empty belly and a willingness to be loved.

    I have been coming there off and on since 2010 and the food there is suspiciously like a replica of the golden bird. Chicken back in the 70s and 80s I don’t know maybe they sold the franchise or something but it’s identical down to the sweet pickles and seasoning salt fries. The batter that only golden Bird had just like every other fried Chicken fast food place signature crust had that separates them from the others.
