New Food, New Taste at Canton Marketplace

Jeff Harris & Ryan Sumner are East Texas Natives with a passion for good food, and the neck of the woods that inspired it.

The Guys Behind The Thighs!

Their new eatery inside Canton Marketplace -- Feathered Friend -- was born out of a chef's love for fried chicken. Feathered Friend hangs its hat on its "Thicc Sandwiches". Each Sandwich is comprised of an entire pasture-raised chicken thigh, de-boned and skinned. The sandwiches are then battered with natural, artisan flour, signature seasonings, fried, and snuggled up to some of our Yard Bird sauce, crispy Kosher pickles. This delicious package is wrapped up in a crave-able sweet sourdough bun.

This new restaurant is sure to claim the title of the best Chicken in Canton, Texas! Ryan has put his soul into the THICC, juicy, and southern-style chicken entrees Texans love! His unique, creative approach to FOOD & DRINKS is magnificent. So, stop in and enjoy some chicken. Be careful, you will get addicted! P.S. BE SURE NOT TO FORGET THE YARD BIRD SAUCE!

This truly is what Big John represents & what you see when you meet him. Family-oriented and driven by his faith, this BBQ is well....simply, HEAVENLY.

Not only does this Husband-and-wife team make extraordinary food, but they are also an inspiration to all those who they come in contact with. His passion for BBQ is only shadowed by his love of people, surrounding communities, and helping all those in need. BBQ & A Prayer, BIG TASTE, & Blessed with Grace. Come in and eat, this is a MUST visit Texas eatery!
