    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.

    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.

    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.
