Dirty Smoked Fried Chicken
GLUTEN-FREE NEVER TASTED SO GOOD!!!
Chicken Thighs and Legs rubbed with Chef Bob’s Honey spiced rub, smoked then when ordered, dropped in the fryer where the Honey caramelizes the chicken and with a light toss of Chef Bob’s Alpharetta Mild Rub, you have the juiciest, Gluten-free fried chicken ever!
Dirty Smoked Fried Chicken sold from 1 to 10+ pieces, no sides or dressing keeps the price down. All sides, sauces, dips, etc. are extra.
Is it good? Well, we suggest you try it yourself but know, during market testing, 95% of the Chicken never made it out the front door!
On our Barrington Farms street we call ‘the Creek,’ everyone loves our neighbor Tommie’s Chicken Buffalo Dip and is a huge hit at all our parties. So, when creating our original menu in 2016, we asked that her dip be part of our business and she gave us permission to use her recipe. So we named it after her!
Emery is Tommie’s husband and whenever she made Chicken Buffalo Dip, he would put it on anything edible as a vehicle to get the ‘dip’ into his belly! Em passed away before we opened in 2016 and to honor him, we took his favorite bacon cheddar burger and added Tommie’s Dip. We can see him smiling every time we make one. Love and miss you Em!
Emma was walking by the open door to Chef Bob’s office and glancing through the door, saw a draft menu and upon seeing ‘Moldy Pig’ said, “Dad, you can’t put that on the menu! Chef Bob calmly replied, “put what?” Emma replied “that! Moldy Pig? It’s disgusting!” Chef Bob laughed “well you made my point now come here and read it, then tell me what you think.” After reading, Emma said “Yeah, your right. Keep it! That looks good. When do I get to try it?”
Wil Charlton’s favorite toy was a little plastic cowboy named ‘Cranky Jones’ and his favorite food was a burger, no cheese. So, his Pop-pop, Chef Charles who was famous for making up names, was trying to get Wil’s attention on the beach and yelled, “Wilburgerjones!” The name stuck!
On Friday, July 8, 2016, our opening day, a couple walked in at 6:15 and upon being greeted, the gentleman said, “Nice menu. Here is what I want. A salad with lettuce tossed with Blue Cheese dressing, Blue Cheese crumbles, Cheddar Cheese, Bacon and a Medium well burger diced up on top.” Emma looked at him and said, “we don’t have that on the menu.” He said, “Well it should be! The owner is a Chef, right? So, let’s see what he can do!” He had the same salad every Friday for 3 months and when we updated the menu, we added his salad, The Ross!
In February of 2020 while her family was eating dinner, the mother asked Chef Bob as he stopped by the table “at work, every Wednesday’s lunch special at my office cafeteria is Buffalo Chicken Salad and it is mobbed. You got the Chicken, the great wing sauces and homemade Blue Cheese and it is Gluten-free so I can eat it. Why don’t you have that salad on the menu?” We added it the next day. Thank you, Amanda!
We received a phone order for a Teen Burger, Yellow American Cheese and fries. That was it, nothing more. When the mother came in for the burger, I asked “only a Teen burger?” She smiled and said, “we were ordering at the Chick-fil-a drive-thru when I asked Gabriel what he wanted and his reply was “Mom, I want my favorite burger!” She replied, “What’s that?” Gabriel said, “Chef Bob’s Teen Burger with cheese and fries.” So, as we sat in line for our Chick-fil-a order, we called you for this burger!” Well, it is still his favorite and we named it after Gabriel, so everyone knows.
Matt is a member of the Champions Community, the Titan’s Wheelchair sports and always had people taking his picture. When he would leave, we would pretend that there were paparazzi outside take his picture. You know when Matt arrives as he yells “Hey Bob!” We are truly blessed to have Matt as a customer and now a neighbor at Champions Place!
While testing a Philly-style Cheesesteak to add to the menu. Chef Bob added a homemade seasoned cheddar cheese sauce to this version of the Philly. As the man was finishing his lunch, Chef stopped by to get his feedback. He said, “I can describe this sandwich with one word. Another. I started with a big bite and as I ate the cheesesteak, I took smaller bites to make it last longer. When I finished, I just felt like I needed just one more bite. Another.” Other customers confirmed the sediment and we haven’t changed a thing since!

Chef Bob’s original creation came to be as we ran out of pork but we had smoked Turkey breast. The customer Paul, said he would try it and while he ate it, he used our Flying Mayo to dip and BAM!
