Hawaii Mom Blog: Visit Alexandria: Hen Quarter

Visit Alexandria: Hen Quarter

I love Southern food, so I was very eager to try out Hen Quarter while we were in Alexandria, VA.
Belly Pops

Southern Fried Pickles

Fried Green Tomatoes

HQ Burger
I enjoyed all the starters, with my fave being the Southern Fried Pickles. Some of the best I've ever tried!

The Fried Green Tomatoes were topped with a smoked mozzarella, and a vibrant Sea Island pea salsa.

The Belly Pops - skewered smoked pork belly bruleed in rosemary sugar and served in a fig gastrique - were pretty tasty.

My husband loved the HQ Burger - a beef patty consisting of short rib, brisket and chuck, topped with crispy onions, pimento cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes.

Kids meals are all $6.95 or less, and come with a drink.
Kids MAC

Fried Cracklin and Fries
For dessert, we opted for the Bourbon Pecan Pie.

They forgot to put the whipped cream on, which was fine, because the pie was already sweet enough as is.

The food and service were both great.  Definitely visit if you love Southern food!
