Lauded by both NBC Chicago’s The Feast blog and ABC 7’s Hungry Hound, Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles offers a menu full of multifarious twists on the two-tiered Southern classic. The Saint ($9.95–$10.95) pairs two waffles with either dark fried or white chicken, and Carol’s Treat ($10.45) lays dark meat on a bed of gravy and onions with a double-waffle mattress made for tongues to jump on. Blindfolded chicken-fry fans sniff out the poultry treasure inside the Rosemary ($8.95), which layers diced fried chicken inside a cheesy omelet and comes with a choice of waffle, fries, or home fries. Drinks trek across tongue terrains with choices such as pink lemonade ($2) or the Island Breeze ($2.80), which blends raspberry iced tea, lemonade, fruit punch, and the sound of the ocean when one’s ear is close enough. Diners can end meals on a sweet note with the cheesecake with toppings ($5.15).

Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles

While the perks at each of Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles' two locations vary, the main draw is the same—a menu of specialty waffles, Cajun- and Southern-inspired entrees, and hearty portions of soul food that earned the restaurant a feature on WTTW's Check, Please!. The smorgasbord of time-honored dishes is dotted with modern twists unforeseen by Chubby Checker, including a funnel-cake-inspired fried waffle, a turkey burger topped with turkey bacon, and a fully-loaded fried-or grilled-chicken salad. Entrees, which can be paired with BYOB beverages at the Oak Park location, include traditional chicken and waffles, catfish dinners with collard greens, and fried chicken gizzards. Jazz musicians amp up the atmosphere at this Oak Park eatery as the chefs put finishing touches on meals with sweet-potato pie and peach cobbler.
