Where to Find Cold-Weather Comfort Food in West Chester

January 9, 2019

Old Man Winter has finally arrived at your Chestnut Square apartment! Now that the holiday fun has died down and the new year is underway, the cold weather may have you feeling less than cheerful. One of the best antidotes to that winter gloom is a tasty treat; just like your mom’s chicken noodle soup or your favorite chili recipe have always been your go-to on chilly, snowy days, classic comfort foods especially hit the spot when the weather turns cold!

Lucky for you, there are a number of restaurants near your Chestnut Square apartment specializing in comfort food—so you can get the warm and cozy feeling of a homecooked meal without having to ever turn on the stove! One of the local West Chester favorites is Mabel’s Barbeque. Located one mile from your Chestnut Square apartment, Mabel’s serves up a range of barbeque dishes that will have you feeling like it’s the middle of the summer instead of the dead of winter!

The family-owned shop relies on generations of homecooked barbeque to create its menu. Among the offerings are fried chicken, ribs, catfish, pork, brisket and many other selections that will have carnivores coming back for seconds. Dishes are served as platters or on sandwiches and can be accompanied by your favorite summer barbeque sides: collard greens, mac and cheese, potato salad, baked beans and more. Desserts will add the perfect topping to your meal. Choose from offerings like a 7-Up Cake or the sweet potato pie to truly satisfy your craving for homecooked treats.

It’s easy to feel like winter is never-ending once the chilly temps descend—but with local spots like Mabel’s Barbeque, Chestnut Square residents can ditch the cold-weather blues and start their countdown to summer just a bit early.
