Cahill’s Market & Chicken Kitchen
John Cahill was born and raised in Bluffton and this is a real labor of love for him, who has always enjoyed cooking. Cahill’s is a true family affair at this down-home country store and, along with his siblings, they farm everything by hand, one row at a time. They don’t use chemicals and fondly recall their youth growing up with seed, fertilizer, a horse and a tractor. They plant and sell produce at the market with Johnny’s sister Debra at the helm running the business. Johnny does the cooking for the “Chicken Kitchen” and brother Mike is in the business as well.
The “Chicken Kitchen” serves home-cooked, southern-style meals. Their menu changes daily, but one item you can count on is the scrumptious fried chicken.
