    Great little spot, with rustic modern atmosphere. The highlights here are the Country a Burger, the KFC Chicken, the Fried Chicken Thigh Sandwich, the Kale Salad and the Strawberry Serrano Margarita.

    The County General's greatest asset is their bar staff - friendly and deliver on drinks. Recommend visiting during warmer months when the patio is open as the wait for a table isn't as long.

    The burger topped with thick bacon and a fried egg is a sure hangover cure, add their delicious spicy Caesar and you're all set.

    It was good. Not great. Servers were awesome. It's a bit "rustic" for my liking. We shared the flank steak-- it's served in an unusual way with salsa and corn tortillas. Tasty -- just not my thing.

    The staple in my dining adventures, I've eaten at the County 1-2 times per week for the last two years. The cocktails are magnificent. Come with a friend and get one of the 'for two' dishes.

    The KFC feeds 3 and is fun enough to be worth the $40. Cauliflower was delicious and cocktail of the day, divine.

    I wanted to like this but the eggs Benny were the worst. So under poached that when I cut into them they disintegrated and almost ran off my board. There is something to be said about plates.

    Fried chicken is really good but wayyy too small for me to justify ordering it again. Not great value IMO

    I'm not a sit at the bar kind of guy, but get a seat at the bar here - it makes for great camaraderie and good service. Very likely the best burger in the city.
