Cuisine: American, Southern
Yardbird feels like a combination of honky-tonk and family dining room, which is the perfect atmosphere for its Southern food. They're most well-known for their fried chicken, which is amazingly juicy. Food is served on platters that make for easy sharing. The menu is filled with traditional dishes and sides that come with a twist, like deviled eggs with smoked trout roe, charred okra, or the skillet cornbread with sharp cheddar cheese, bacon and jalapeno. While you'll find salads on the menu, the true stars here are proteins, like the smoked brisket, Virginia Ham and pork ribs. The room is noisy and the atmosphere boisterous, so don't expect to have much conversation here--besides, you'll be too busy eating to have much time for chatting.

Homestyle: "The restaurant here is very noisy, making it difficult to hear conversation unless you're sitting next to someone. Plan for more eating than talking."
Best for Homestyle Because: The homestyle food at Yardbird is the very definition of comfort food.
