Pick Up the Best Fried Chicken in Hattiesburg

Nothing says Southern cooking like fried chicken. Before World War II, people typically only ate fried chicken on special occasions. Today, you can find it everywhere, but only a few places really make it right. If you find yourself craving this comfort food favorite, these local eateries serve up the best fried chicken in Hattiesburg. They all offer curbside pickup and are conveniently located near our Hattiesburg apartments.

Cotton Blues 

Open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Cotton Blues is a local favorite for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In the kitchen, the chefs prepare every meal to order. They use the finest of ingredients and strive to keep the menu fresh and exciting. Definitely try the southern fried chicken tenders. They’re best enjoyed with jalapeño coleslaw and onion rings. If you’ve got room, you can also add the restaurant’s famous cheesecake for dessert. Order online for easy pickup. 

Keg and Barrel 

Found inside a late 1800s house, Keg and Barrel will take you back in time with its original woodwork and wrap-around porch. It features beer from Mississippi to Ireland, and people often mistake the extensive tap wall for decoration. These days, they offer convenient curbside pickup. For dinner, try the Fatty McFat sandwich. A customer favorite, it features buffalo fried chicken tenders and blue cheese crumbles on a brioche bun. 

The Midtowner 

The Midtowner boasts that it offers “everyday food in an extraordinary town.” It’s one of the city’s newest restaurants and takes inspiration from local history to prepare down-home comfort food.
