Good ole’ Southern cooking has blessed our palates with many unique and favorite dishes? but one of the very most cherished dishes is the simple Chicken and Waffles combination.
There is just something about the soft, yet crunchy experience of a waffle matched up with the crunch of juicy chicken and doused in sweet, sweet syrup.
Chicken and Waffles Chicago Restaurants:
5 Loaves Eatery$
405 E 75th St, Chicago, IL 60619
At 5 Loaves Eatery the chicken and waffles are served separately, but only because they want you to personally introduce these soulmates. Cooked perfectly, and perfect for each other.
Batter and Berries$$
2748 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
The name may be Batter and Berries, but you can skip out on the berries as long as you’re sure to lather this meal in hot sauce and their maple flavored butter for utter bliss.
2965 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60657
They do Chicken and Waffles slightly differently. Rather than a traditional waffle, you’ll find cornbread (some refer to it as a cornbread waffle, I’ll stick to just cornbread). However, with corn gravyit is a welcome changeup and they are BYOB! This chicken really pulls it all together.
Breakfast House $$
1800 W Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60622
Breakfast House goes all out with their portions. Ridiculously fluffy waffles and well seasoned crispy chicken (dipped in the honey mustard sauce) will kickstart your day perfectly and fully. Oh yeah, it’s also BYOB!
Chicago’s Home of Chicken and Waffles$$
3947 S King Dr, Chicago, IL 60653
As their name hints, Chicken and Waffles are kind of their specialty. This gives you the opportunity to order the exact pieces of chicken that you desire? thighs, wings or half a chicken (why not?).
4600 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60625
Some people can’t imagine eating breakfast food without a side of pork? which is precisely why these Chicken and Waffles are topped with acandied bacon garnish.
Hash House A Go Go $$
1212 N State St, Chicago, IL 60610
Hash House A Go Go takes their waffles to the next level by including bacon in the waffle batter? the fried chicken and sage that tops it off is perfection.
3361 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL 60618
I’m stretching this one a little since waffles are NOT part of the mix? however, when French Toast replaces it and is accompanied by phenomenal chicken, you won’t hold it against me after your first bite. The honey butter dripping over everything is a game changer.
Longman & Eagle$$
2657 N Kedzie Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
This is the place to go for an all around meal and when mimosas just won’t do. Get the Chicken and Waffles,a side ofpork belly sweet potato hash, and a glass of whiskey from their respectable selection.
Luella’s Southern Kitchen$$
4609 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60625
A super crispy exterior and a light and fluffy interior make these waffles a gem. The crispy, yet juicy chicken pair up perfectly, especially when accompaniedwith your favorite BYOB beverage.
Virgin Hotel, 203 N Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60601
Miss Ricky’s embraces the slightly spicier side of Chicken and Waffles in Chicago. The Sriracha waffle paired with buttermilk fried chicken and Sriracha honey sauce is magical.
Hotel Palomar,505 N State St, Chicago, IL 60654
Sable’s Chicken and Waffles are nothing to scoff at. You can never truly go wrong when you combine a honey glaze with chicken, and the addition of the sesame seeds on the waffles adds a very slight crunch to your bite. This simple inclusionof texture really rounds out the platter.
Stanley’s Kitchen & Tap$$
1970 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
Stanley’s goes all out with an all-you-can-eat brunch, which means that you can pair chicken with waffles until you are physically unable to walk back up to the buffet line.
52 W Elm St, Chicago, IL 60610
(Currently closed and reopening asBlue Door Kitchen & Garden.Hopefully they keep this dish.)
There is no special trickery here – Table Fifty-Two takes chicken and waffles for what they are and just perfects both recipes. Chicken and Waffles that do justice by themselves, but unite for tastebud victory.
White Palace Grill$
1159 S Canal St, Chicago, IL 60607
White Palace Grill doesn’t leave Chicken and Waffles alone. What really makes this stand out is the addition of the homemade apple compote. The sweetness of the compote mixes in with the sweetness of the waffle and they combine to perfectly compliment the slight saltiness that fried chicken contains. Open 24/7!
