I stopped by the other day for dinner, and had such a good time went again for a second meal!

The fried chicken is crispy on the outside, but juicy on the inside… Served with a tea brine and thai dressing that provides the ultimate kick, this fried chicken is not like grandma would make it, and that’s quite alright!  Succulent and light, easy and loaded with flavor the fried chicken at The Chester is just as addicting as the pork belly photographed below!

The pork belly entree at The Chester is simply divine.  The presentation of the loin of pork served on a wooden board is worth the order alone, but one bite of the seasoned meat with a tender body and crispy skin and any foodie will cherish the the perfect dichotomy of texture and taste that is delivered with each dynamic bite!
