Have You Ever Thought About Chicken and Waffles, Together?

Ever since my husband and I first heard about the chicken and waffles in the soul food sense we have been really wanting to try it. But first we stopped at a little joint called BIG and little's.  They do not have a website.
And that is the size of it.
Crab Tostada
We started with the Crab Tostada- it was great! Extremely fresh, and some Truffle Fries.
Truffle Fries, very good.

Soft Shell Crab Po Boy
The Soft Shell Crab Po Boy, as good as it looks.
Pork Belly Po Boy.
Foie Gras Fries
Then we went to Chicago's House of Chicken and
Mark's Big Boy
Mark's Big Boy- 1/2 chicken smothered in gravy and onions with 2 waffles.
1/2 Fried Chicken

Delicious waffles and I don't really like waffles. These were soft, fluffy and good.              

Betty Lou- 1/2 chicken and 2 waffles
Great food, Great friends!
