#1: Lovely's Farm Market, 330 E Central Ave Springboro, OH 45066: lovelysfarmmarket.com
Known for their fried chicken recommended by a friend. I have eaten there two times this summer. The fried chicken is excellent. A caveat: eating in the cafe (as opposed to carry-out) is quite expensive for this kind of place. I was told at the ordering counter that you cannot
order either the family chicken packs (starting with 8 pieces) nor can you get containers of their salads or sides to eat in. If you eat in the cafe, you "must" pay the individual (quite expensive) prices per side and you "must" order the individual meals. No family deals permitted. Everything is a la carte. Today three of us each ordered their 2 piece chicken dinners, and we got a total of 4 sides between us and three fountain drinks. $29! Almost $10 apiece. I will add that my two piece meal, a wing and a breast, were both microscopic. Quite small. I left still hungry.
#2: Trails Tavern, Yellow Springs on Rt. 68 in the center of town.
I do not recommend it. The place has very slow service and expensive food with narrow selections, and indifferently made. The food was OK to insipid. A $5.75 "Jerk Burger" is a very dry 1/4 lb patty on a plain bun, absolutely no toppings (even a stupid slice of tomato is $0.50) but uber hot jalepenos and jack cheese, and a sprinkling of rosemary herb that I guess is the "jerk" seasoning. And no side included except chips and a pickle spear. A relatively narrow range of appetizers - no jalapeno poppers, for instance. We paid $19 for about $12 worth of food.
Not great reviews, but provided in the spirit of informing.
