History is full of illustrious matches: Antony and Cleopatra, Woody and Mia Farrow, and Romeo and Master P. Today’s Groupon brings you the successor in this historic pairing lineage: chicken and waffles. Today's Groupon gets you $25 worth of comfort fare and drinks for $10 at Maxine's Chicken and Waffles, the soul food hot spot serving up the illustrious combo in downtown Indy. Indianapolis Monthly raves about Maxine's sweet and savory pairings, calling the cuisine "soul food that warms the soul."
Don't dismiss this comfort food cookery based on its location in the back of a filling station—the menu is packed with palate-pleasing selections. Raising 10 children on the south side of Indianapolis and working 30 years in St. Francis Hospital's cafeteria helped Maxine's namesake owner master her famed recipes and has also rendered her thoroughly immune to "guff." The signature dish pairs golden waffles with fried chicken and a generous dollop of whipped butter, giving diners the best of both worlds. Soul-food staples (crunchy cornbread, collard greens, fried green tomatoes) round out the menu.
A modest interior allows the hearty dishes to take center stage. Service follows suit with the cuisine—warm, comforting, and reliable. Get this Groupon to experiment with eating dinner and breakfast at once, sample a new cuisine, or ground taste buds in preparation for a holiday season full of taste misadventures.
Indy.com and Indianapolis Monthly love the culinary combos, and Metromix names it one of Indy's Best Breakfast. Yelpers give the restaurant an average of 4.5 stars and 82% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
