Chicken and waffles are a great combination if done well. Not Here. The chicken is wayyy overcoated and the waffles have pitiful flavoring. I've been twice. Don't waste your time or money.

I have been here many times. I've always had tremendous service, nd the waffles are the best. They have several flavors, including blueberry and sweet potato. I always get collard greens and chicken tenders with my waffles. The tenders are nearly as big as your...More
