Featured Park City Restaurant - Famous Spring Chicken Inn

Famous Spring Chicken Inn - Park City
Editor's Note: The Famous Spring Chicken Inn is CLOSED for business until further notice.

The Famous Spring Chicken Inn is one of the oldest, family-run restaurants in the Park City area. Located in Wanship, just a short drive up Interstate 80 from Park City, the Famous Spring Chicken Inn has been serving homemade fried chicken and comfort food since 1930.
 
A far cry from the crowded, modern restaurant scene found on Main Street, the Famous Spring Chicken Inn brings you back in time with a cozy, historic atmosphere, good food, and friendly service. In recent years, the new owners added beer and wine to the menu; a great addition to the perfect fried chicken dinner. They also serve an incredible Prime Rib dinner on Friday and Saturday nights, plus live music starting at 6pm!
 
The Famous Spring Chicken Inn is located in Wanship, at exit 155 off Interstate 80. To get there from Park City, get on I-80 at Kimball Junction and head east for about 10 minutes. Once off the freeway at exit 155, take a left, go under I-80 and remain on that road (SR-32) for less than a mile. The road will bend to the right, and the Famous Spring Chicken Inn will be on your right just after the bend.

History
The Famous Spring Chicken Inn was started in the year 1930 by Keith and Thelma Siddoway in a garage one half mile east of where the inn is now located. To the best of our knowledge, it had a small counter with three bar stools & two booths. It was on what was known then as old Lincoln highway. Later, the highway was moved to where it now exists.
 
Before long, the business had outgrown the building. Grant Judd moved that building to Judd Lane. Rounding up all the local men available, the present building was constructed using river gravel mixed with concrete. For many years all the chickens were raised locally and were dressed out by Keith and hired help.
 
For 27 years Keith owned the inn. It was sold to Sherdon and Gwen Woolstenhulme (they bought it in 1956), and for 8 years all the chicken was fried in 10 inch frying pans. The Woolstenhulme family owned the inn for over 50 years, until it was finally sold in 2006.
 
The year Interstate 80 was constructed, a new dining area was added and the building took its present form. After many remodels and upgrades, the Famous Spring Chicken Inn is now known from coast to coast by many loyal customers.
