The most common way to experience the Deep South is to find a street magician and hope he pulls a shiny Louisiana state quarter from your ear. Get a taste of the South closer to home with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of comfort fare at Chicago's Home of Chicken & Waffles. Choose between the following locations: Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles on South King Drive in Chicago and Chicago’s Home of Chicken & Waffles II on Madison Street in Oak Park.

Chef Carolyn Johnson brings influences from her native Trinidad to Chicago's Home of Chicken & Waffles, comforting appetites with homespun, Southern-style comfort fare. The sweet scent of waffles wafts through exposed-brick dining rooms all day long, accented by crispy-fried classics such as a quarter-chicken dinner ($10.50) or catfish fillet dinner ($11.95). Mark's Big Boy ($14.75) smothers palates in gravy-drenched chicken and onions, and the Evelyn's Eggstasy gathers bell peppers, onion, tomatoes, and cheese into a fluffy omelet embrace, served with a waffle, fries, or home fries ($8.95). Jewel-toned collard greens, pots of creamy mac 'n' cheese, or velvety sweet-potato pie are available to accessorize meals more aptly than serving steaming potatoes in your best top hat.

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.

Customer Reviews

everything is soooo good - and I always get the same thing - dark chicken with mac. and cheese, greens, and sweet potatoes - the portions are huge so definitely have food for the next day - and of course, the servers are always very nice
