Champagne and Fried Chicken — best lunch ever!

My good friend Sheri and I went to Choplin’s restaurant for their famous fried chicken and gravy last Tuesday. Chef Wes Choplin makes it every Tuesday for their lunch special and it’s a treat! It was my birthday so we started with a glass of champagne.

Outdoor seating at Choplin’s located in the plaza at One Norman Blvd.

Great atmosphere

Cool and comfortable, the interior of the restaurant feels elegant. The hostess and wait staff are friendly and the service is excellent.

Whether you are there for lunch or dinner, the atmosphere is cool and comfortable.

Choplin’s offers lunch specials from Tuesday – Friday

I must admit that I always go to lunch at Choplin’s on Tuesday for the fried chicken! It is a full boneless chicken breast breaded and fried to perfection. The chicken is juicy, the breading is crisp, and the gravy is so good you have to pour it on just about everything!

Great place for lunch or dinner

Choplin’s is a great place for a celebratory lunch or dinner. It’s my favorite restaurant, I’ve eaten there for special occasions or simply as a treat for myself and a friend. It’s quiet and you can definitely chat over lunch without feeling rushed. If at all possible, save room for dessert, their homemade cakes are amazing!
