Napkins are great, and when it comes to some Southern-style cooking, chances are you’re going to need them, or at least something similar to them. That same Southern-style cooking is bound to get your hands dirty some way or another, and when that [...]

Mac and Cheese

dsa

Mac and Cheese is a great dish on its own. It’s so simple with its combination of two things people love in pasta and cheese, yet delicious and filling all at the same time.

Just because something is so great and widely loved, doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. And like so many things, improvement is a simple step away… Add bacon! That small addition gives a massive, yet still simple improvement to this dish. Pasta, cheese, and bacon; you could add those three things to just about anything to make them better, so it only makes sense that the three of them combined is something excellent.

At Cool Hand Luke’s, you can get our Bacon Mac and Cheese as one of our Skillet Sides to go along with your meal. It’s a little bit extra, but if there’s one truth in this world, it’s that bacon is always worth a little extra!

So take your side dish from something great to something epic and give our Bacon Mac and Cheese a try on your next visit to The Coolest Joint in Town!

Waffle Worship

waffles

Do you remember when donuts first made their debut onto the dessert stage? From basic glazed donuts to chocolate cake donuts frosted with sprinkles, donuts had so many reasons for their popularity.

After donuts came the cupcakes. The simple birthday party treat-turned-dessert blockbuster has had quite a long run. There are cupcake shops sprinkled throughout nearly every mall and free-standing cupcake stores in nearly every town. Cupcakes possess myriad flavors of cake and frosting; and there are even TV shows dedicated solely to the simplistic treat. While we love cupcakes, we’re ready for a new foodie fad.

Enter: Waffles. Originally a breakfast delicacy, waffles are now considered a delicious delicacy any time of day. You’ve probably seen waffles pop up on Pinterest, Instagram, and even in food trucks in your neighborhood: all of them boasting the part-crispy/part-gooey treat. You can jump on the waffle bandwagon any time, and not just at a waffle food truck: Try chicken sandwiched between two waffles, smother your waffle in butter and blueberries, or whip up some cream and Nutella to top off your sweet, crispy treat.

While waffles may be the latest dessert craze, at Huck’s, they’ll always be a breakfast staple. So, come on in, get ‘em while they’re hot!

Chocolate Milk: Not just for kids

chocolate milk

You may make you think twice about what you should drink, especially after a hard workout. Besides water and sports drinks, what else is there? Well, new research suggests that chocolate milk might just be the best beverage of choice. Yes, that sweet, rich chocolate flavor you’ve loved since you were a kid can actually help you have more energy.

While water can certainly replenish you, and can definitely be a refreshment after an active day outdoors, chocolate milk can help fuel your muscles. It has more protein than sports drinks and less sugar. That means, chocolate milk can help keep you hydrated, while boosting your energy.

 Next time you finish up a jog, a bike ride, or even playing with your kids, think of refueling with a tall glass of chocolate milk. Or, next time you stop in at Huck’s, order one up for you, and one for the kids. Who knows…it may just help you gain enough energy to get out and play with them some more.

Eating breakfast will make you happier

Happy breakfastThe health benefits of breakfast are well-known to most people.

It’s no secret that when you wake up, your body has gone a long time without any new energy pumped into it. And when the chaos of starting a work day is staring you straight in the face, the last thing you want to have piling on to you is hunger.

But what about just overall happiness? It seems like common sense that if your body is fueled for the day, you’re going to feel better and feel happier!

Yet still, some people don’t make enough time in their mornings for breakfast, which seems crazy to us knowing what kind of Southern hospitality and delicious meals you can get at Huckleberry’s. Sure, it might take a little more time to sit down for breakfast with us than you might spend by eating something small on the go, but the comfort and full stomach that you’ll get from us should be enough to give you a great jump start for even the most hectic of work days.

In honor of the importance of breakfast, we wanted to share this short piece from a few years back found on tnjn.com, authored by a fellow breakfast lover Alyse Wieland. Have a look… Read More »

You’ll Love Our Flapjacks

flapjacks

At Huck’s we’ve always got the foods you’re craving.  If your cravings are demanding a delicious breakfast covered in syrup, flapjacks are the answer.  One of the questions we get frequently is what differentiates flapjacks and pancakes and the answer is simple.

The difference between flapjacks and pancakes comes down to their ingredients and how they’re cooked. Flapjacks are flat cakes made out of a mixture of oats and butter with added sugar. They are made in the oven. Pancakes are made out of flour, milk and eggs and are prepared by frying.  Now that we’ve got that cleared up come in and enjoy the best flapjacks around!

Ain’t nothing like an original

WafflesWhen something is done well, you can sure bet that there are going to be other versions of it. Those changes might be great in some ways, but still, nothing beats the original.

The same can be said about our waffles at Huckleberry’s. There are lot of different ways you can enjoy our Big Flaky Waffles, whether it’s with different fruits and toppings on top, you’ve got variety. But there’s just nothing quite like the original!

It’s so good you can find it right at the top-left corner of our breakfast menu, so you know it’s a great place to start. It’s our famous “butter crisp” Belgian waffle that goes great with so many things. But there’s no shame, only joy to be had in keeping it simple and dousing that glorious golden breakfast entrée in maple syrup to get your day started.

Sure, you can change it up and try our waffles with all the different fruits we’ve got to offer and we’re sure you’ll love those too. But really, does anything beat the original?
