It may be a new location, but it's a repeat top performance for Williams Chicken at 1620 Avenue Q. All they serve is chicken, and they right with zero violations.
Now to our only other top performer.
The South Plains is home to only one micro-brewery and it's sits at 19th Street and Buddy Holly Ave. Open just about a year, Teh three J's in Triple J Chophouse spell perfection.
"It started out my husband John and his best friend Joe from college. College buddies decided to take it on - turn it into something great along with Joyce, that's where you get the three Js. So there is actually a 'Triple J,'" Dena Sautter said.
Open from lunch to dinner, and a little later, Dena says Triple J Chophouse is perfect for anyone.
"I think we have a very diverse menu, really great menu for anyone, any kind of palate, any kind of diet," Dena adds.
No matter what's on your plate, Dena says they take a lot pride in getting it there, "From our hand cut, hand-breaded chicken fried steaks, we hand cut all of our steaks, hand make all of our desserts and soups."
"The green chili burger probably one of the best sellers," Joyce Bigham said. "We do a hand made burger - all the way from the patties hand formed to the home made buns," Dena said.
And if you think that bread you sink your teeth into has a unique taste to it - there's a reason, "The bread we have with all our meals is made from the different mash from our beers, so our bread may taste different from time to time depending on which kind of beer were brewing," Joyce said.
When it comes to brewing, "Our hand-crafted beer, which is a lot better than most domestics, you can take it home with you," Dena said.
It's not just the health inspector Triple Js has to deal with, add the TABC, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and OSHA to the mix. But Dena says it's all worth it, "We kind of think that great streaks and beer kind of go hand and hand."
