After closing their popular Fremont Diner suddenly in June, Erika and Chad Harris reopened on Wednesday at the same location, featuring their fried chicken at a newly painted all-white Box Car Fried Chicken & Biscuits.

Try the deviled eggs with pickled mustard seeds, fried oysters, a pimento cheese plate with sharp and mild cheddars and pimentos, hush puppies, platters of fried chicken now in four-levels of heat, Zante grape with Pt. Reyes blue cheese or Indian summer salad, and sandwiches with fried chicken, fried oysters, or pimento and tomato. Lots of sides like their popular collard greens, dill coleslaw, fries, baked beans and potato salad. Same shakes, floats, brews, sodas, and good wines, and $5 Straus soft-serve cones.

Open Monday through Friday, 11 a. m. to 3 p.m. until they can hire more staff to extend hours.

2698 Fremont Dr., Sonoma. 938-7370.
