    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 fried chicken for two was delicious and a fun experience. You eat if off a piece of paper!

    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.

    David Lee, chef of Nota Bene, eats here on his nights off. He loves the Pork buns. Read more

    Any suggestions? I'm going at 8pm.

  • Toky K.

    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.

    Amazing service, great food and drinks! Will definitely be coming back!

    Brutal service for a Friday night sitting at the bar. Chicken was undercooked too.

    Their Caesars and Chicken Thigh Sandwiches with Fried Egg are my favourite!!

    The "KFC" Chicken is enough for 4 people.Secret menu available online.

    Best pork buns I've ever tried. I could eat plate after plate of these

    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.

    Monday Bourbon brunch! special menu offered. 2 dishes, Caesar, and dessert for $20 !

    Their caesars are a must-try. Not on the menu anymore I don't think but you can ask for one.

    Nancy Situ · August 7, 2013
  • Tony R.

    Overpriced! $72 for brunch seems a little much. Feeling a bit swindled at the moment.

    You won't regret the fried chicken

    The burger is incredibly delicious and a perfect size.

    Had the chicken Thigh Sandwich, chicken was too salty for my taste. Small portion.

    Kate Ip · May 11, 2013
  • Quinn D.

    The food was really good but the menu sucked, the music was too loud and the waitress was rude. Small portions too

    KFC chicken

    The menu is way too confusing and there's not very much selection, food wise.

    Amazing sports TV! Bigger than the outside allows!

    The Caesar is to die for! Homemade liquid spice mix consisting if 13 ingredients goes in before the clamato. Gahhhh

    Come with your people and sample it ALL. Is it acceptable to lick the plate of others people's meals...?!!!

    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.

    Missy Kelley · December 29, 2012
  • Cari M.

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

    Manhattan is incredible but be aware it's $18.

    Eggs benney - Hollandaise is tasteless, eggs too runny, single piece of toast too tiny. Fries over cook a smoker? Americano = delicious.

    nicole g · September 9, 2012

    HAVE the pork buns... Really, just do it.

    Stefanie Holt · August 6, 2012
  • Sully S.

    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.

    It wasn't rated the best sandwich in TO for nothing: chicken thigh sandwich is amazing!

    Kid sized portions at adult sized prices.

    They're not joking about the hot sauce, it damn spicy.

    Steamed pork buns & fried chicken sandwich FTW!

    Gourmet but casual — the County General’s specialty is its fried chicken sandwich on a buttermilk biscuit with avocado chutney.
