You don’t need a reservation to visit— just come on in! At Hattie B’s, we offer fast-casual counter service and seating on a first come, first serve basis. Because of our limited space and high volume of guests, we are unfortunately not able to reserve tables, host events, or appoint specific areas of the restaurant for larger groups. Groups should consider a pickup catering order (platters and large format sides) or a delivered catering. (See below).
This depends on location. Please ask a manager before bringing a pooch in. Also, if dogs are allowed, please stay aware of the high volume of guest/server traffic, chicken bones, and extremely hot spices. We wouldn't anyone to trip on a leash, get tangled up in our crowds, or get their nose into something too spicy!
Orders for less than 20 people/under $300 can be placed with an individual store’s manager with at least 24 hours’ notice. Our phone lines open at 11am— just be patient with us during high volume times of day as phones are often throttled due to high demand. You can also click on CONTACT US in the upper right-hand corner of the homepage. (We are not able to always guarantee that emailed orders can be accepted - we will contact you back with a confirmation or a request for more information.)
If you don’t have the time to jump in line, you can always jump online and pick it up To-Go! Just scoot back to our website, choose your preferred location, and our online system will tell you the pickup time. You can even order up to two weeks in advance!
We like to operate with that “do unto others” credo— and the first grade credo of “Hey! No cutting in line!” We want to be fair and thoughtful of guests that have been waiting in our line, so our To-Go means just that.
