Off the beaten path is where we are this week for some famous Broasted Chicken. You know that feeling, you have worked all week, life is busy and fast-paced. Why not slow it down a little and take a scenic, country drive while taking in all the sights and sounds of nature enjoying the views of the countryside. Washington County is known for its beauty. It is famous for its Rock Shelters located at Meadowcroft Village, boasting one of the best-preserved and old Pre-Clovis Native American dwellings in the country. The county also has 21 covered bridges that are still standing today. As you navigate through the beautiful landscape, out of nowhere this hidden gem appears, let us take look.
Let me get straight to the point. The Broasted Chicken is their signature dish. The Chicken is cured in Salt Water for two days, much like they do in the South. It is broasted and pressure cooked. There is a crunch unlike any other when you bite in, and the tenderness and flavor pour out. If you do not like whole wings because of the maintenance, not to worry, it pulls right apart. Another great option that offers versatility is that they sell the chicken in individual pieces. You can buy the breast, drum, thigh, and whole wing separately if you wish. Pair the chicken with their famous broasted taters, what a treat!
Breezy Heights is also known for other entrees. They will cook you a steak to your likening. Their Barbecue Ribs are tender, juicy, and packed with flavor. They have a wide variety of pasta dishes that are made with homemade marinara sauce. If you want to keep it simple, you can order a soup and sandwich. They also have a great house Wine that you can pair with your meal. Overall, the menu is diverse and extensive.
Breezy Heights Tavern and Restaurant Final Take:
BEST BROASTED CHICKEN IN THE TRI-STATE? LET’S EXPLORE!
As always, my final take… I have said it repeatedly. Some of the best food comes from unique, off-the-grid places like this. Nothing against modern establishments, but older places have that X factor of character. The setting is rustic with large, stuffed game. The owner is a gem and is so passionate about his establishment that he will personally cook when needed. The prices are also very reasonable. Washington County’s slogan is “Share the Energy.” With that said, share this hidden gem with everyone, it is that good…
