From Our Editors

The story of Lucky J’s Chicken & Waffles begins with transformation. The eatery started as a food truck before rolling into its culinary cocoon, soon emerging as a brick-and-mortar location propelled by wings of fried, fluffy batter. Today, homestyle sides such as collard greens and fried pickle chips accompany a menu that mostly proceeds as follows: fried chicken, waffles, fried chicken with waffles, and waffles folded into tacos stuffed with fried chicken. It’s a simple concept, but it has earned the spot attention from the Atlantic, CBS News, and FOXBusiness. The Austin Chronicle called the chicken “both greasy and salty; this is not a criticism,” adding that, combined with waffles, which “have a luscious buttery flavor with a hint of sugar to them … the whole ensemble is sinfully delicious.”

In addition to classic, bone-in fried chicken served with waffles, waffle tacos come in combinations that are more surprising than a jack-in-the-box filled with firecrackers. The Brady’s bacon waffle conceals swiss cheese, hot sauce, and honey, whereas the Grandma Andy is stuffed with banana, Nutella, peanut butter, and honey. Surrounding feasters, the shop’s bright murals all originate from the hand of local artist Federico Archuleta, and include dueling guitars played by chickens and a woman eating chicken next to a chicken eating a waffle.
