Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, Nashville TN

This hot chicken was really great, and you could actually really taste and feel the heat! I didn’t mind the wait since it was actually kinda fun. The mac and cheese was also really gooey and awesome, NOMS!

Pale ale beer - Hattie B's Hot Chicken
Pale ale. I waited in line forever, but it was nice that you could go inside and get a beer to ease the wait, hehe! I actually met a great group of people in line and we just chatted the entire time. 🙂


Ol’ Dirty Biscuit – Ace Biscuit & Barbecue

Ol' Dirty Biscuit - Ace Biscuit & Barbecue
Fried chicken, sausage gravy, dill pickles, smoked pimiento cheese. $9 – Side of waffles. $5.50
Ace Biscuit & Barbecue, Charlottesville VA

I didn’t think this was very good. I think the biscuit would have been fine without the pimento cheese since there was already gravy. Also, the waffles were really limp and bland. Not my favorite breakfast.

Chicken and waffles sandwich – The Wine Kitchen

Chicken and waffles sandwich - The Wine Kitchen
Boneless leg and thigh, wilted kale, buttermilk waffle, bacon jam. $14
The Wine Kitchen, Leesburg VA

This dish was a major fail! The waffles were so crumbly that they had no chance to stay intact with the fried chicken and the wilted kale. The kale was actually pretty tough so it wasn’t an easy green to put in a “sandwich” in the first place. The chicken was also pretty greasy. I definitely had diner’s remorse.

Nashville chicken and waffles – The Fremont Diner

Nashville chicken and waffles - The Fremont Diner
Spicy fried chicken served with corn sorghum waffle, butter, and vanilla cinnamon syrup. $15.99
The Fremont Diner, Sonoma CA

This was delicious! The chicken was a little greasy, but I loved the seasoning and the heat. I didn’t think it was very spicy, but I do love me some Nashville hot chicken! The waffle was also really tasty especially with some of the syrup on top.

Mama’s fried chicken and cornbread waffle – Mama Knows

Mama's fried chicken and cornbread waffle - Mama Knows
Three pieces buttermilk brined crispy fried chicken, jalapeno-cheddar cornbread waffle topped with rosemary honey butter. $16
Mama Knows, San Francisco CA

The fried tasted good. It was greasy, but it had a nice flavor. I was excited for the waffle, but it didn’t deliver. I liked the ingredients, but it came out sad and limp.
