American Restaurant

“Best Fried Chicken and it is GLUTEN FREE! Fabulous and lively atmosphere. Kid friendly, walking/biking distance. A Lafayette staple. The Post Brewing Company brews beers that are gosh darn delicious, memorable, and something you will want to put in your mouth repeatedly. Our beers have been purposefully designed to pair perfectly with your meal. Our kitchen, run by Chef Brett Smith, serves you delicious comfort food cooked with the love of your grandma and the skill of passionately trained chefs that is meant to be shared like a family supper. Featured by Guy Fieri on Food Network’s Diners Drive-Ins & Dives, our bird is better than the rest—humanely raised, all natural chickens are brined for hours, dipped in buttermilk, seasoned with gluten-free flour, and then fried to crispy golden perfection, just like your grammy used to make. Our parking lot is tiny and mighty. If you aren’t able to park in it, please park along S. Public Road (it’s free!). Thanks for helping us keep our neighborhood free of clutter & cars.”
