It's a dish invented in the North by Southern blacks and consumed by white people in Northern cities located in the South like Austin and Atlanta.

/that should kick things off

I like it.  The oddest thing is how it's big with Southern-style haute cuisine places.  I frequently see highbrow interpretations of it in Atlanta, but everyone says Gladys Knight's place has the best.

I've always understood this to be the case as well.  It evolved from Southern cuisine, but not actually in the South (perhaps Harlem, if I am not mistaken).  I hadn't heard of it until I went to New York a number of years ago, or at least, I hadn't seen it on any menus.

I'm against fried chicken and waffles because biscuits always beat waffles when it comes to chicken.  Maybe with a little peppercorn gravy.

So I'm confused.  Is there syrup and butter involved in this?  Are they poured over the waffles, the chicken, or both?

Around here the best chicken and waffles is served at Maxine's Chicken and Waffles.  They have the best chicken and waffles, fried corn, and hot water cornbread in the City.  If you make it this way, check it out.  Also try the peach cobbler.

RIGHT!  I totally missed the part of American History where black people started growing out of the ground in Detroit one day, or maybe... maybe it was the chapter where free Africans emigrated directly to Michigan, circumventing the slave trade entirely.

That stuff isn't chicken and waffles. Cicken and waffles is chicken in gravy ladled over waffles. Suck it south. Pennsylvania Dutch ftw.

NO!  You get a waffle with butter on it.  Then you get your fried chicken.  They warm syrup is served on the side.  I like to eat a bite a chicken and then a bite of waffle.  Because syrup on the chicken would be silly.

check out  http://www.maxineschicken.com/

That is the place to go!

I am so hungry now!!

Both are involved and both are poured on the chicken and waffles.


What? Why?  Why would I want buttery, sweet, sticky fried chicken?

Sticky barbeque sauce on chicken - ok.
Sweet & spicy General Tso's chicken - ok.

But maple-butter chicken?  That's worse than a McGriddle!!

Oh and don't get me started on catfish fiddlers and spaghetti!
That is such a great combination.
I am not black, I was raised in Southern Illinois (home to meth syrup), but these were traditional special occasion meals made by my grandmother and aunts.  I think it comes from making the meal with what you have on hand.

I got nothing. I can't find anywhere in Austin that has chicken and waffles on the menu, though. Maybe some of the home-cookin' places that don't have a menu on the web, I guess.

Why should the South suck it?  We don't have a dog in this fight.  Take it up with New York, home of every other bastardized ethnic cuisine in this country.

You guys can have chicken and waffles.  It's stupid.  It serves as an identifier just like the idiot tourists walking around Broadway in Nashville in cowboy hats.

Huh.  I've only been down here in NOLA for 6 years and I know some places serve it.

Also, there's a place going up in New Orleans East where this is going to be their signature dish.  The place is even going to be named "Fried Chicken and Waffles" or something like that.

A friend of mine from Chicago had it there last summer.  Not sure where but a googles of  "austin chicken waffle" brings up plenty of results.

Here's a great one I found on a menu in your town (Lucky J's).

Chicken and Waffle Taco:
A boneless fried chicken strip wrapped in a waffle. Top it with hot sauce and syrup!

It's a recent development.  I've seen it here and there the past few years, but I don't recall ever seeing it before recently.
