A Macon staple was named one of the "100 Plates That Locals Love" by the Georgia Department of Economic Development's tourism division in the new culinary guide called "Georgia Eats."
H&H, which is located in the heart of downtown Macon, near the Medical Center-Navicent Health and Saint Joseph's Catholic Cathedral, is known for its rich history with Macon music.
The restaurant was a hot spot for legendary rock starts The Allman Brothers.
However, it is the chicken that helped the restaurant win the award.
"The thing that makes our chicken more special is that we've kept the same recipe. We've kept it all original from the beginning. This was Mama's recipe," said head chef Matt Stephens. "We're just carrying on the legacy and it was so good that we just kept it on."
Stephens said the chicken is seasoned perfectly and it is cooked with love.
H&H opened in 1959 with Mama Louise running the kitchen.
The Moonhanger Group just celebrated its first anniversary in owning H&H.
