  • The Best Place to Get Lunch or Dinner Springfield IL

  • Our famous Southern Fried Chicken is a real-life blessing and a curse. It’s hand-breaded with fresh homemade ingredients,cooked to order, and guaranteed irresistible. I know, I know. How can something that beautiful and delicious be a curse? It’s simple; our fried chicken is so good you won’t be able to try our other phenomenally flavored dishes. Anytime you stop in, you will order this irresistible fried chicken (and we are okay with that). Hey, not all curses are bad and this is one Harry Potter probably wished he had.

  • Sometimes when we are at a restaurant and all of the appetizers look and sound amazing, it can be frustrating. I mean, trying to only choose one?! Talk about first-world problems. We hate problems like that, so whether you are in the mood for fried green beans, chicken wings or popular choice pepper jack mac n cheese bites – we have this beautiful concoction called the Abe’s Sampler Platter. That’s right, Abe’s Hideout AKA first-world problem-solvers.
