Foodie Friday: More Than Just Fried Chicken at Prohibition Chicken
I love a restaurant that provides a full, fun, unique dining experience in addition to fantastic food. If you haven't experienced Prohibition Chicken in Old Town Lewisville yet, you'll be finding a way to get there as soon as possible by the time you're finished reading this blog post - trust me!
Prohibition Chicken was created by four local guys (Chef Roger Kaplan, Ken Johnsen, Josh Babb, and Sean Clavir) who have a passion for two things: chicken and whiskey. And Prohibition Chicken perfectly marries those two passions together.
Two of the owners: Josh Babb and Sean Clavir
Customers can enjoy family-style dining and drinks in the main dining area. Or if you really want to enjoy the full prohibition experience, head on back to their speakeasy through the telephone booth where you can enjoy their full menu as well as some truly unique cocktails created by their Cocktail Enthusiast, Tyson.
I had no idea that this place had a hidden speakeasy in it, and when I found that out, I was so excited!!
The menu at Prohibition Chicken is simple - you choose the protein (chicken, beef or fish) and then pick four family-style sides to go along with it. You can also add on salad for $1 per person and a basket of their incredible homemade cornmeal biscuits. (We definitely recommend adding both on.)
They have four chicken options you can choose from if you decide to go the chicken route. Their most popular options are the Crispy Fried and the Smoke Fried (a combination of their Crispy Fried and their Pecan Smoked). We had some of their Smoke Fried and it was fantastic. The skin had incredible flavor to it and the chicken was deliciously tender. If you want a gluten-free option, their Pecan Smoked is perfect because it's not fried in a batter. And if you like a little bit of spice, you'll love their Hot Chili-Fried Chicken dusted with a Jalapeno Ranch.
We also ordered their Beeman Family Ranch Akaushi Tri-tip which also had incredible flavor and was cooked to perfection.
To go along with your protein, you get to choose four family-style sides for the table to share. They've got a great mix of hot and cold sides to choose from. We went with their Classic Creamy Southern Slaw (which has some jalapenos in it for some added heat); the Smoked Cheddar Ale Mac 'n Cheese (so creamy and delicious); Smashed Potatoes (their version of mashed potatoes made with parsnips and cream); and Smoked Cheddar Grits (a little bit of a sweet option).
We also recommend you not leave Prohibition Chicken without trying one of their desserts (if you can manage to find the room in your stomach)! Their regular dessert item is their Sticky Biscuit made with gooey caramel pecan apple goodness and a dollop of whipped cream. We chose to go with their seasonal dessert options which were a Granny Smith Apple Cobbler and a Peach Cobbler both topped with a vanilla bean cream.
