    Large menu, but if it's your first time, you gotta go for the chicken & waffles combo. Busy spot, so be prepared to wait. Servers are friendly too! Make sure you go there feeling hungry!

    Never knew chicken & waffles (best waffles by far) could compliment each other so well. Order the mac & cheese on the side as well, it's so freaking good.

    Obama came here! The chickens great - get the thigh wings and drumsticks. Breast can be kind of dry as expected from breast. Mac n cheese was nice too! AND they have fresh orange juice!

    Eschew all of the butter and about 75% of the syrup. Chicken and waffles make for a great quick meal here.

    Beware that if you eat chicken and waffles here on a hot day, you will be sweating butter and chicken grease the rest of the day. Worth it? HELLS YEAH.

    Large portions! First time to try hot water cornbread, it tasted strange. Don't get the Jean's Delight. Chicken & waffles are good. Waffles are very soft.

    Chicken and waffles... amazingly amazing. I get the number 18: Leg or thigh and a waffle with an extra thigh on the side and it's enough food for me.
  • Christine N.

    Get a thigh and waffle with a side of gravy and mac & cheese. Pour syrup liberally over the waffle and dip in gravy. Sinful, but thank me later.
