Fodor's Expert Review King Daddy's Chicken & Waffle
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Owned by the same people who run Early Girl downtown, this spot, which opened in early 2014, serves some of the best fried chicken in town. You can start with a waffle cone of fried pork cracklings or a Quebec-style poutine (french fries smothered in lamb gravy, cheese curds, and onions). The chicken comes in several styles, including deep-fried and skillet-fried, and you can add one of a number of kinds of waffles, such as Belgian, pumpkin and pork crackling, served with maple or sorghum syrup.
