Gawkman and Kayn venture to restaurant with a bizarre food combination: chicken and waffles. What's next, BACON AND ICE CREAM? Mmmmmm.... bacon lard swirl...

There's a wonderful thing about chicken and waffles. One's chicken, and the other is a waffle.

And ya know what? They taste good together.

In an effort to make Tha Boy jealous with envy and or rage, Kayn and myself decided to go check the place out. No longer would HE be the exclusive tryer of terrible food combinations.

So, we got there, and noticed how awesome the logo of the place is. It's a chicken with a chain wallet with his arms folded. So intense. The place had already earned my approval.

HAPPY SIGN

We walked in, and sat down and were given a menu. The menu consisted of a bunch of different combination plates, which mainly consisted of... *gasp*... chicken and waffles. I was still in denial that they would serve chicken and a waffle on the same plate, so my brain still was arguing that it was some sort of bizarre metaphor.

I ordered a standard plate that came with a waffle a piece of chicken (chicken thigh, to be exact). Kayn did the same.

After a reasonable amount of time, out came our plates. I stared in disbelief for a while. I spent a considerable amount of time observing that there was a piece of chicken on the same plate as my waffle.

Chicken... waffle... chicken... waffle... chicken... buttered waffle... chicken... buttered waffle... chicken... syrup-drenched buttered waffle... chicken...

So I took a bite of my waffle. Then another bite. Possibly the best waffle I'd ever had.

So I took a bite of chicken. Then another bite. Possibly the best piece of chicken I'd ever had.

Then I had a bite of waffle. Then I had a bite of chicken. Then another bite of waffle. Then another bite of chicken.

Somehow, my brain still didn't want to believe it... it had moved on to some theories about alternate realities or something, insisting that I was not truly perceiving this with my senses. Whatever, it was GOOD! On follow up visits to the place (which have become fairly frequent), I even ate a bite of chicken WITH my bite of waffle. And it was still excellent.

Approval.

After cleaning my plate, we ordered a piece of red velvet cake. It destroyed your mamma's dishes! In a good way!

So, in conclusion, if you're ever in downtown Phoenix, go to Lolo's Chicken and Waffles. You don't have to believe it to eat it. I don't.

Smilie!Try Captain Hooks

bwill (Guest) jabbers:

Smilie!The catfish is ok but there is a place on 67th ave and Bethany called Captain Hooks that has the best Catfish in Poenix o far that I have tasted. It is seasoned well and it is huge and not expenive at all.

Smilie!Very surprised at the negative feedback at this location. Lo Lo's Chicken and Waffles is a resturant established by the son of the Famous Mrs. Whites. (Soul Food dining on Washington St. in Phoenix,Arizona)

My client suggested this eatery and was a wonderful find. This combination of food reminds one of Sylvia's in New York and Roscoes in LA.

The fish is unbelievable. The Yams are too die for and the mac and cheese, don't think about it..

This is a monthly stop for me.

The majority of the daytime or lunch time patrons are white business and city employees.

not a gourmet but a waffle lover (Guest) bakes:

Smilie!ditto on lolo's. the food was not at all what i was anticipating. it was a waste of my gas and time to check this place out, oh well i'm still in search of some place with good waffles and not a gimmick.

Your average Waffle lover (Guest) splats:

Smilie!I DON'T KNOW IF IT WAS BECAUSE IT WAS SUNDAY AND THE REGULAR COOK WAS OFF OR WHAT, BUT THE FOOD WAS A MAJOR DISAPPOINTENT. THE CHICKEN WAS GREASY AND EQUAL IN FLAVOR TO BANQUET FROZEN CHICKEN . THE WAFFLE THIN AND LIMP, NO CRISPY LIGHT WAFFLE HERE,THE MACARONI AND CHEESE HAD A FUNNY LOOKING COLOR TO IT AND LACKED CHEESEY FLAVOR. THE CORN BREAD WAS VERY GOOD. THE COFFEE WAS HOT, BUT ON THE WEAK SIDE. THE CATFISH WAS EXCELLENT, BUT THE SWEET POTATOES WERE FAR FROM BEING ANYTHING BUT BEING SERVED DIRECTLY FROM THE CAN AND SPRINKLED WITH BROWN SUGAR AND A TOUCH OF CINNAMON.FOR THE PRICE OF THIS SIDE DISH I SURE FELT INSULTED AT THE PLATE PLACED BEFORE ME. ALL IN ALL, I WAS TRULY DISAPPOINTED AND WOULDN'T RECOMMEND LOLO'S OR EVER CONSIDER RETURNING.

Shadow (Guest) verbalizes:

Smilie!Wowza, I saw that place on that thar tely-vision o' mine.
Seriously though, I saw that place on the news and they were saying that it was famous and all the celebrities ate there. Yeppers.
