    Chicken & Waffles. You get a choice between white meat & dark meat. White meat is a $1 extra.

    Pedir el waffle de alitas de pollo si tenes mucho hambre igual te llena. Hay que esperar habitualmente pero vale la pena. No hay wifi.

    Great food, great portions and affordable prices. We had Sharpaton's Chicken & Waffles, Smothered Turkey Wings, Seafood platter, Salmon Croquettes, which were very tasty. We will definitely be back.

    Good food and friendly service but they kept us waiting outside in the cold for a long time despite having a ton of open tables. Be prepared to wait.
