A favorite that we all know and love is making a return. Little Donkey is officially open now in Homewood. After a hiatus, they have officially reopened their (new) doors to serve you Mexican fare with a Southern twist. Known for the best chicken in America according to Thrillist, this place hits the spot.

After nine years in their old location, they were ready for a change. This new and improved location features a spacious patio, bright decor and most importantly: new menu items. Who’s ready to try that the best fried chicken in the best new space? I know we sure are.
