Terrible. Really. Chicken & waffles? Same waffles that you get in a Hampton Inn. Tiny piece of dried out greasy chicken & cold, dry scrambled eggs. In fact, everything was cold. Last thing? Worst biscuits & gravy EVER. Cold, pasty white gravy (no sausage) &...More

Good southern cooking like my grandmother used to make! I tried the fried chicken and waffles that they are apparently famous for, and I was not disappointed! I had turnip greens for my side, and they they were as good or better than any I...More

Great place for chicken and waffles! Perfectly prepared and seasoned. We were confused after reading all of the TripAdvisor reviews which place to try while visiting Memphis. This was excellent and did not disappoint- great location on Beale street as well. Highly recommend!
