Brookville Hotel

Chicken Dinner
One of the best

The Brookville Hotel used to be a piece of the bygone west. It closed in 2000 and a brand-new building in Abilene was designed to look like the original. While the old-west charm of the old railhead town of Brookville is absent, the menu here in Abeline remains the same one that made Brookville a destination for generations of hungry Kansans. Fried chicken is the main attraction – half a bird, skillet fried and served with mashed potatoes and chicken gravy, with side dishes of corn, cottage cheese, baking powder biscuits with sweet preserves, sweet-and-sour slaw, and ice cream for dessert.
