Country Kitchen's rustic menu serves up traditional comfort fare abetted by chicken-fried chicken, ribs, assorted veggies, and home-style desserts every day of the week, with specialty entrees making frequent guest appearances. Eschew your morning foraging for a hearty breakfast such as the ham and cheese omelette ($7.99) or a farm skillet ($8.29) bedecked with sausage, two eggs, onions, and green peppers atop a lofty hash-brown haystack.
Sandwich-wrapped lunches brimming with spicy dijon chicken ($7.99) are complemented with simmering soups, such as calico bean ($3.29/cup, $4.29/bowl), and garden-fresh salads, such as the cranberry-pecan harvest salad ($7.29). Chow down on a doubly delicious chicken-fried chicken dinner ($7.79) or sate your primal urges with a meaty heap of beef pot roast ($8.29). Dinners are served with an edible retinue of a roll and choice of two sides, including broccoli, soup, salad, and a choice of potatoes that are mashed, diced, baked, or zipped into the savory lining of a hash-brown coat.
Hunger is anathema to the hearty menu and home-style atmosphere of Country Kitchen, which offers friendly service and the traditional comfort of country cooking, unlike the fast-paced flippancy of city fare, full of arrogant lattes in three-piece suits and paninis that never stop checking their texts.
