I know of 2 places that have chicken and waffles in Oakland:
1. House of Chicken and Waffles (HoCW) in Jack London Square
2. Merritt Bakery by Lake Merritt
I've been to HoCW, and their chicken is great as is their friendly service. I've heard that the C&W at Merritt Bakery is really good, but I can't stand going to that place even when it's late night and I need some grease in my belly. I've been there once..and I don't think I'd go back. The service is just awful, and the their menus items are bleh.
My boss wants to take his daughter out for some good southern fried chicken....anyone have a preference between the 2?.....or perhaps another suggestion?
