Fried Chicken and Waffels in Phx

Scott Stevens | Jul 22, 2005 08:11 PM

Anyone up from some good fried chicken? Several years ago I was at the state fair and was minding my own business when this guy walked up to me and said, "Your a big guy, I bet you like fried chicken". I kid you not. Of course, I am a big guy. So I replied that, in fact, I did enjoy a good fried chicken now and then. He gave me his card and told me if I am every in the area to stop by. I went home and stuck the card for Lo-Lo's Chicken & Waffles on the 'fridge door and there it stayed.

About a year ago, I was going down I-17 in south Phoenix when I realized that I had the time to stop by. I am glad I did. They have the best fried chicken in Phoenix. The chicken is very moist but not greesy. When you finish of a few pieces you do not feel that heavy feeling you get from other fried chicken.

Now, not being used to southern cooking, I thought it odd to have waffles and chicken together, but I am glad I ordered a combo with both. These waffles are out of site. Slightly different flavor then what I make at home but much better. They stay crispy on the out side but still a bit soft inside.

I must say that everything is made when you order it. So give them some time. Everything will be served hot, so the wait will be worth it.

I recommend you try them out if you are in the area. I glad the owner was at the fair when I was and had the huevos to give me his card.
