$15 for $30 Worth of Soul Food

The Saint ($9.95–$10.95) pairs two waffles with either dark fried or white chicken, and Carol’s Treat ($10.45–$11.45) lays fried chicken, gravy, and onions atop a double-waffle mattress.

The fried waffle à la mode ($6.95) and cheesecake ($4.50) represent two of eight desserts. See the full menu.

Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles

In Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles' Oak Park location, the ambient light from low-hanging chandeliers illuminates a menu of 14 specialty waffles, 22 Cajun- and Southern-inspired entrees, and hearty portions of soul food. Trinidad-born chef Carolyn Johnson has crafted a smorgasbord of time-honored dishes with a modern twist unforeseen by Chubby Checker. Entrees, which can be paired with BYOB sips from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday–Thursday, and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, include traditional chicken and waffles, catfish dinners with collard greens, and fried chicken gizzards. The swanky restaurant hosts jazz bands Thursday–Saturday, and lavishes its customers with-exposed brick walls, high-backed booths, hyperchic décor, and spontaneous baths of sweet tea.
