Hodak's always provides a dining experience second to none. Their chicken and every menu item is delicious. The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is inviting and it does not break the bank.

Great food served at the bar. Quick and piping hot. Ice cold beer. The chicken was tasty , well seasoned. I love the light breading. The cole slaw was nice and tart and fries were hot and crisp.

The fried chicken looks great (size-wise)! It is nice, served piping hot & crispy but tasted bland beyond all that crispy coating. My taste buds were expecting something flavorful & amazing. Maybe its missing some seasonings, ketchup, or bbq sauce??? I am still bewildered by...More
