    Little Skillet is literally a window along a wall where die-hard fans order fried chicken and waffles, and then devour their purchase in an alley. Sound perfect? It is. Don't forget the cheddar grits. Read more

    This tiny little spot in an alley attracts long lines for their fried chicken and waffles among other Southern items like po'boys. Go early to avoid the crowds and grab one of the few spots to sit! Read more

    Say no to the waffles - they're a distraction - but a big yes to the fried chicken at this takeout window not far from AT&T Park. Consider the coleslaw, mac and cheese or ham-hock greens. Read more

    Get the pulled BBQ pork and grits and pick up a packet (or 2!) of honey. After you enjoy the BBQ pork, there are enough grits left on the bottom to drizzle with honey and enjoy as dessert.

    On sunny days, we'll take a field trip to have lunch here. Get the fried chicken. Use more hot sauce than you think you need. Sit in the alley and eat. Perfection. - Kellie, Community Manager

    Chicken & Waffles, Po Boys, Biscuits, and Grits - those are pretty much the four categories on the menu in this early day dining spot by the farmerbrown team.

    Love love love this place, can be a long line during lunch hour but worth the wait! Fried chicken breast and waffle my perfect match!
  • Kenfe-Mickaël L.
    You should try the "The Works" 2 pieces of fried chicken, 2 pieces of waffles and a side (e.g. mac & cheese). Does wonder for the heart!

    I love this little window. Come earlier rather than later to make sure you get your chicken fresh. Towards the end, it's not freshly fried.

    They opened up the bigger restaurant space inside for brunch and dinner in January. The walk up counter is still open during the week.

    Good place out of the way to get awesome fried chicken and waffles before the Giants game. Make sure to have hot sauce handy.
  • Bon Appetit Magazine
    Some argue that fried chicken is best enjoyed while sitting on a park bench on a summer’s day. Test that theory at this take-out window, where the chicken is paired with waffles or biscuits.

    Do NOT miss the honey jalapeño sauce. Amazing! Despite the name it's pretty mild, but delicious on the chicken or eggs.

    Some of the most moist and delicious fried chicken I've ever had. Ponder the odd working class pastiche of eating chicken on a loading dock with your startup coworkers.

    Chicken and waffles! Syrup is molasses-based and incredibly good. Chicken is tender, and waffles fluffy and delicious.

    Fried Chicken is the best I've had in SF. Waffles are equally delicious, and don't forget to bring cash.

    Eggs McMahon - It starts with a puddle of sausage gravy. Then comes a waffle, a fried egg, scallions, and cheddar cheese.

    I'd say the value of your meal is dependent on luck; if you get a drumstick and a wing, the 2 pc waffles is expensive but if you get two humongous chunks...

    Great food, great prices, without the attitude of their parent restaurant. Great fried chicken and the biscuits with brown sugar and black pepper shouldn't be missed.

    If you're there with a group, it's better to get a chicken meal with sides to share. Fries are seasoned well and crispy. Waffles are ok, just ask for the sweet cream butter.
