    BEST chicken and waffles! I didn't think the gravy would be good at all, but it was amazing. I would suggest getting the gravy on the side, so you can pour the syrup on first and then the gravy.

    Best chicken and waffles ever! I have tried many places and even roscoes in California and this place hands down is the best!! great drinks too! Try the "cherry limeade" or the "purple drank"

    Chicken and waffle is the goto here. Huge chicken breast on a waffle drenched in gravy. Add on some syrup, hot sauce, and ketchup and you have a winner winner chicken dinner.

    The migas were excellent but you GOTTA get the Danger Dogs. Sausage wrapped in pancakes and fried in batter with a dash of cinnamon sprinkled over them. Absolutely incredible.

    As a huge fan of chicken and waffles, I had to try this place! I was not let down in the least, they have the best chicken and waffles I have tasted in all of my travels!

    Small place, so the wait an get out of hand when it's too hot or cold to sit on patio. The food is really worth the wait though - good southern flare that will keep ya full :)

    Let's be real, 1 breakfast entree is enough to feed three people. You think I'm kidding, but go ahead and see for yourself. It's called the All in One Waffle...

    Pros: Fantastic food! Awesome environment! Dad's Benedict rocked! Cons: Thomas was terrible; not as personable as the others; we watched him upset 2 other tables as well. Maybe he's having a bad day.

    If you are here with a friend order the club and a plate of chicken and waffles. Split it in half and share! 2 best things on the menu. You will thank me later!

    For those who prefer something other than oatmeal in the morning, Jonathon's serves up an affordable breakfast during the week as well.

    Everything is good here. Wild salad, Bloody Mary, chicken & waffles and most of all service. Ask for Thomas or Damian.

    Get something with either the gravy or the cream. Both are made fresh and both are the bomb.

    Oak Cliff locals have come to depend on this house-turned-diner to start their day off right, and they come in vans.
