We have been wanting to make the trek to Oak Cliff to check out Chicken Scratch and the Foundry for awhile. Weather permitting, we found a perfect night to enjoy a few drinks and fried chicken outside. This seat-yourself establishment is a perfect place for a group of friends to enjoy good food and a few brews while listening to some live music.
Ordering was quick and easy. We decided to try the rotisserie chicken with jicama-slaw and a fried drumstick, chicken tenders, and a side of the hominy-green chile mac & cheese.
Overall, the food was tasty and definitely better than your typical pub fare. The rotisserie chicken was juicy and tender, and the vinegar based slaw was a nice touch. The fried chicken was good, however the cornmeal batter had a bit of a fish fry taste. The mac & cheese won our favorite dish of the night. Although the chicken wasn't the best we have had in Dallas, the atmosphere and food is definitely worth future trips...especially for some late-night grub.
