At Whistle Britches, we’re all about chicken. In 2016, we had one thing in mind – serve the tastiest, juiciest and crunchiest bird in town. Our pickle brined bird, farm-fresh ingredients and soulful cooking will leave you wanting more. We believe comfort food never goes out of style. Our scratch kitchen is always baking fresh buttermilk biscuits and some of the best chicken sandwiches in town. Couple all that with a great local craft beer selection and inventive cocktails, you soon realize why we came up with the name Whistle Britches. We like to draw a lot of attention to ourselves, and we’re OK with that! So if you haven’t stopped in yet, what are you waiting for?

Our reservation was cancelled, despite confirming the reservation over the phone a few hours prior. We weren’t assign a waiter. Our drinks were never refilled.

The chicken is some of the best in the DFW area. The service is prompt and fun. We love the homemade sauces and jam. If you haven't been here yet, you are missing out on a great experience.

Really cool and vibrant decor...an atmosphere you would find in Austin. We started with the “hoecakes”. I didn’t realize that it would be a stack of mini-flapjacks. Good flavor but I’m not into ordering a somewhat breakfast appetizer to start dinner. Maybe more of a brunch thing to me. Then moved onto The Whistle Britches and Pitmaster sandwiches. Really good flavor on both. Both sandwiches come with chips. If you want fries or a different side, it will be full price of the item as opposed to an “up charge”. Service was pretty standard, nothing special. But I couldn’t help but notice they had 3 servers for 5 total tables in the restaurant at 7:30pm on a Tuesday. That would definitely weigh on a server when they actually need to have tables to make money. Manager walked around but didn’t stop by the table. The host was pleasant entering and leaving. Hopefully he gets two pay rates being he was pre-bussing and refilling water as well. Overall, not sure I’ll be back anytime soon.

Best Chicken Ever! Chicken is the highlight here but other interesting menu items also. Good selection of beers and cocktails. Nice atmosphere. Can be a little noisy inside.

Went for Sunday brunch 10:30am with a group of 8 people: Overall, good food and good value. Would rather try it for lunch than brunch. Pros: Able to get a table for 8 and they seem to have a lot of large table options for reservations. Lots of cool ambiance, great space, great big outdoor area. Portions are huge (!) Their speciality is fried chicken and its delish. Tthat said, not many "traditional" brunch options (more lunch-type options) Cons: Sunday morning brunch parking was VERY limited...had to drive around and eventually parked in a fast food resturant next door.

Very down-to-earth setting with a fantastic southern fried-chicken type of feel. The grits were amazing and the mix of flavor on my chicken sandwich was amazing.

We used to go to Whistle Britches a lot. We stopped for a while. Last night was not great like we remembered. The food was just ok. The server was ok. The chairs were uncomfortable. We have decided for the $$ we spent, there are much better places.

the food is really good here! I usually build from the side menu because the food from the normal entrees are huge and I can’t eat a full plate. It’s a great quality place and is always packed

I really like this place and go here often. However, the noise level can be bad at busy times and the tables are so close together that it's unavoidable.
