We flew to the The Eagle OTR to see what the squawking was about, quite a bit it turns out.
American fare, 100 different beers including sixteen on tap. And the price points, this is probably one of the more reasonable places to eat in OTR and you don't sacrifice taste or quality because of it.
We started off with a few sides, a sweet potato crock and spoonbread. They both came out in cast iron skillets, something amazing always happens to food cooked in cast iron, I don't know what it is but its awesome. You know how corn on the cob from that road side stand tastes like sunshine in your mouth? That's exactly what the Eagle's cornbread tastes like, fresh corn. It was crazy good.
The Eagle's chicken is pressure cooked, super crispy skin with equally tender meat. I think The Eagle just ruined chicken from anywhere else for me. The chicken is seasoned heavily with pepper which I've heard isn't to everyone's taste but I loved it.
Good stuff. I always say, keep your friends close, but keep the 'Nomerati's beer recommendations closer.
