The chefs at Home of Chicken and Waffles sling southern soul dishes late into the evening within a retro '60s diner. The soul-fare menu is littered with hearty entrees named after members of the owners’ family, such as Angie's Delight, a pairing of one chicken breast and one waffle ($10.25), or Paige's Palette, a dish that plates two southern-fried chicken wings with an egg and a waffle ($9.95). Tuck into the meal of champions at any hour of the day with a selection of omelets, biscuits, and waffles. Diners can swan dive into the gravy-filled abyss of the Brother Darroll, an amalgam of two pieces of chicken prepared southern-style or smothered in gravy (+$0.50), with grits and a fluffy biscuit ($10.75) for sopping up a neighbor's syrup runoff.
Home of Chicken and Waffles’ 1960s-inspired walls are festooned with murals of menu items and an accompanying portrait of each dish's family-member namesake, all hand-painted by a local artist. Motown and soul classics pump through the sound system during the week, and gospel rings out from the speakers on Sunday mornings.
Home of Chicken and Waffles
Originally born as a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles franchise, Home of Chicken and Waffles has since been reimagined as an upscale '60s-themed diner with a full bar of specialty cocktails to complement the menu of hearty comfort fare. As chefs load Southern-style or gravy-smothered chicken onto plates next to signature waffles, Motown grooves fill the dining room—unless it's Sunday, when gospel music reigns. Homestyle sides such as grits, greens, and candied yams trim plates of crispy chicken. The kitchen prides itself on using fresh ingredients—real milk and cheese make the mac 'n' cheese creamy, and real beans prove tastier than holographic beans. Every dish is named after a member of the owner's family, who gaze down on patrons from vibrant portraits behind the counter.
It is that perfect amount of crispy on the outside and tender-moist on the inside, perfectly seasoned, and ALL the sides are delicious. I mean all.Tia L., Yelp, 7/28/11
The homeboy was a perfect example of what this place is known for, chicken & waffles. I enjoyed the chicken dipped in hot sauce.Gisele X., Yelp, 7/14/11
