For years I've heard about Roscoe's and heard about this southern staple, but never tried it. It always seemed somewhat silly to me. I know I like fried chicken, I somewhat like waffles, what's not to like. So the other night I tried it at Wild Turkey in Yonkers. I figured everything else is delicious, why not.

I just don't get it. I mean received a plate of some of the best buttermilk battered fried chicken I've ever tasted. Some nice corn on the cob cooked on a grill. And a waffle with syrup? It just didn't go. Was I supposed to eat one before the other? Together? I know I didn't want syrup on my Fried Chicken.

Honestly, are there two things that go together less than these two items? Maybe I needed a different atmosphere, but I just didn't get it. Someone explain the excitement over this pairing. And please don't tell me "when it's good." My food was excellent, it just shouldn't have shared a plate!
