Hop's Chicken is one of Chef Linton Hopkins' two venues in the Ponce City Market food court. It's next to H&F Burger, his other venue. Hop's doesn't offer any interior seating. Just take your bag and grab one of the food court tables either inside or out.
The menu is relatively simple and straightforward. Interestingly, they offer not just sandwiches but full fried chickens. The line was long. I think that the service is a work in progress but the staff was very friendly and helpful.
This is my fried chicken sandwich. That side is black pepper gravy, one of several choices of sauce. I was slightly suspicious of serving a sandwich with sauce but it turned out to be very tasty and not very messy. This is a good-sized piece of chicken, considerably larger than what you find in a fast-food version of this sandwich. The crust is of the soft variety. It is extremely well seasoned with a perfect blend of Southern herbs. The meat was juicy and tender. The bun did a good job of complementing the meat. Overall, a very tasty lunch.
