    One of Phoenix’s best soul food restaurants, Lo Lo’s is bound to make everyone happy. The Southern-style fried chicken is extra crispy and served with cinnamon-kissed golden brown waffles. Read more

    I was in Phoenix for 3 1/2 weeks and the day before I left, I finally got to try LoLo's after many attempts to go during my stay. The Arnold Palmer in the mason jar and everything else was amazing!

    Good soul food. A must try kind of place. A but crowded at times but I can see why because the food is so good. Try the mac n cheese and cornbread and for dessert have some red velvet cake. :-)

    Kool-aid in a mason jar! Chicken and waffles the size of your plate! Yummy southern potatoes and cornbread! Completely to die for! Charrae was my server and she knew her menu! Great food and service

    the atmosphere is like being at my aunt's house, and the food was just as good. I would tell you to try something but everything was delicious. Just get some Kool-Aid in a mason jar!

    Well I'm a lover for years of this place until this afternoon, if you MUST eat here the catfish and somedays the greens are on point today they were so good. Sadly, If you love disrespect go there.

    Nothing beats the original Lolo's near downtown Phoenix. Everyone knows about the chicken, waffles, mac & cheese and Koolaid, but don't miss out on the seasoned fries of red velvet cake either!

    That's right, this unlikely pair is all over their menu. Get 2 chicken legs & a waffle for $7 or try one of many other combinations. They also have an amazing red velvet cake if you want sweets. Read more

    The waffles are like none I've ever tasted. Delicious, cinnamon bread-like and definitely plentiful. The chicken was definitely homemade but not quite as down-home as other nearby places.

    The renovation of the building is fantastic. Much more spacious inside with more tables and less waiting. As an ASU student though, I'm sad to see the student discount has been removed.

    I have fallen in love with everything that bad for me. Now it's a waffle and yard bird sandwich that I can't get enough of, and the bottomless mimosas may have helped.
