Chicken feat

  What kind of waffling chicken doesn’t like to decide on a brave dining concept? Not me. When I had the opportunity to have a fowl waffle, I hopped to it.  
Atmosphere: Super cool combo of diner meets urban mural. They have all of their menu painted on the wall. The dish beside the person for whom it was named. Good people-watching spot.

Service: Friendly and efficient. Refills delivered with a smile.
Angie’s Delight ($8.95):
Fried chicken breast, a waffle with butter and syrup and a cup of grits. Crunchy, greaseless exterior, moist and succulent interior, that’s the way to make fried chicken. I wish that the waffle had a crisp exterior too but the combination of crispy chicken and waffle was still a good one. The grits were just fine.
Incredible Issac ( Not pictured - $7.50):
Same as Angie’s Delight except with a thigh instead of a breast. I love dark meat and this was cooked just right.
Delight ($2.25):
Half iced tea, half lemonade, this was too lemonadey for me so I added some more tea and it was perfect. The regular iced tea costs 60 cents less, and is just fine, but less fun.
Overall Rating:

Overall: Two carrots out of four.
The do a great job of frying chicken here. The other chicken and waffle restaurant that I go to in Los Angeles is a little funkier and more difficult to get into. I like the hours that this place keeps (they open at 8 a.m. and close at midnight except on Friday and Saturday when they stay open 'til 4 a.m!)


Chicken and Waffles Bathroom Rating

Clean and stocked. Lacking in the fine character that the rest of the place shows.
