SARATOGA SPRINGS — In Food Network’s newly released rating of fried chicken from coast to coast, The Food Network dubbed Hattie’s Restaurant & Chicken Shack one of the best spots in the country, and the best in New York for fried chicken!
“Hattie’s, in Saratoga Springs, has received many accolades for their standout fried chicken over the years, and even beat Bobby Flay in fried chicken on Throwdown! with Bobby Flay,” said The Food Network in its review. “Hattie’s famous fried chicken has been served since 1938, and there’s a reason it’s still around: it is that good!”
As part of the Business for Good family of businesses, Hattie’s Restaurants aim to grow and amplify a community positive business, while maintaining the quality and character of its product, the vision of its present ownership, and the legacy of its founder, Miss Hattie Moseley Austin. All profits of the Hattie’s Restaurants are donated to local charity, aligning with the Business for Good mission of giving back to move forward. Miss Hattie’s locations include Hattie’s Restaurant in downtown Saratoga, Hattie’s Chicken Shack in Wilton, Hattie’s Track Shack at the Saratoga Race Course and soon-to-open Hattie’s Albany.
“We are thrilled for Hattie’s to have been given this incredible recognition from The Food Network!” said BFG Restaurant Operator, Jasper Alexander. “Not only do we serve delicious chicken, but under the ownership of Business for Good, we are able to help more people than we ever imagined we could.”
