I just want everyone to know that there's a new chicken and waffle restaurant in the New Brunswick area. I am not affiliated with them, but have had great experience at the restaurant and thought it important to share in the same way I would if I had had a bad experience.
Last Legg Chicken & Waffles Restaurant
453 Somerset St
Somerset, NJ 08873
Below is the review I posted on yelp.com --
What!? You haven’t been to Last Legg, yet? Stop reading this review and get over there now!
Last Legg is a new (3 months at this writing) chicken and waffle restaurant in Somerset (almost in New Brunswick). I am a chicken and waffle lover. I frequently travel to Amy Ruth’s in Harlem for their chicken and waffles and feel that their waffle is second to none. Last Legg, it seems, will save me lots of money on gas.
I went early in the day and ended up going back because I neglected to get my fiancé some food. In those visits, I was able to taste a large sample of their menu. Let’s start with the chicken and waffles – delicious. The Belgian waffles at Last Legg are light, fluffy, flavorful and golden brown. The fried chicken is well-seasoned and easy on the grease. My fiancé thoroughly enjoyed her fried fish and continues to remark on the lightness of the phenomenal batter. I also had a fried shrimp po-boy which was stellar even though it didn’t have as much sauce as I prefer. On my second trip, I had the BBQ chicken platter (they call it Bangin’ Benny’s Barbecue) with sides of spice rice and greens. The chicken tasted as if it had actually been smoked and the BBQ sauce had a perfect consistency. The collard greens are some of the best I’ve had at a restaurant. The spice rice was spicy, but lacked some flavor.
Overall, Last Legg is a much needed dining addition to the area. The staff is great, the food is fantastic and, if my experience is any indicator, a visit to Last Legg is one your mouth and your stomach will thank you for.
Note: Last Legg has counter seating inside and can get crowded (with good reason!)
