Best chicken and waffles!!!! Vibe is fun and casual, great for groups and tons of southern food options to get your comfort on! Bloody mary's are amazing and it's so great to be able to add a little beer next to it. Worth the wait!

Such a great restaurant for a typical fried chicken & waffles feast! Tucked into Ludlow Street on the Lower East Side, this place is perfect for those in Manhattan not willing to trek to the original location in Brooklyn. The various chicken and waffle combinations are great for everyone, including those like me who have never eaten fried chicken & waffles before stepping into this restaurant. If you're not feeling like chicken & waffles, there are other southern food options including shrimp 'n grits and smoked pork has. And not to mention, they also have great cocktails!

For those first-timers, I recommend getting the classic chicken & waffles (picture below). Feeling something new? Try something more adventurous like The General chicken & waffle combo, which includes fried chicken with general tso's sauce, rice and broccoli waffle.
