The Plate: Station House Chicken Sandwich
The Place: Whistle Stop Tavern, 224 N. Third St., Lantana; 670-2003.
The Price: $9.95
The Skinny: John and Jerry Broz know food. Anyone who has been in the area any length of time probably has dined on food prepared by the Broz family — they operated the Famous Restaurant and Lounge from 1947 to 1974 north of downtown Lake Worth before heading west of town to run the Bohemian Gardens, open from 1976 to 2010.
Now they’re at the Whistle Stop Tavern in Lantana, once home to the Grumpy Grouper and other restaurants. Here, they bring their skills in the kitchen to a range of dishes from such bar fare as wings to steak dinners and, in a nod to their eastern European roots, pork schnitzel.
This chicken sandwich essentially is their version of Buffalo chicken, breaded, fried until crisp and dipped in wing sauce. The chicken itself was fresh and tender, and the blue cheese and sriracha mayonnaise added a little kick. Kudos to Whistle Stop for serving it on a perfectly toasted roll.
