I used to have a tiny bit of an obsession with Chicken & Waffles. Here is an analysis of the Bay Area Chicken & Waffles that are worth the calories.
The number ratings are strictly for the chicken & waffles- not the ambiance or service.
Gussie's Chicken & Waffles -- CLOSED
San Francisco, CA
I was eating my chicken and noticed it was extra chewy. Turns out it was raw. When I told the waitress, she mentioned the chef was out of town. Who was cooking my chicken & waffles... Or rather, who wasn't?
The waitress shouted "sweet baby Jesus" when I told her the uncooked chicken.
I did not realize this place was in East Oakland until I got there. I highly recommend you go there with a large, burly friend (not with a group of girls).
They don't have a boneless option. Also they run out of chicken parts, so they have weird rules on how many of what you can order.
The adventure. The people that work here are the nicest.
Chicken and Waffle House
I wish they had boneless chicken, but now I'm just being picky. Parking was annoying.
In the middle of Jack London Square. The food was solid. The decor was awesome. The staff was great.
The line was long, and the syrup could be more unique, but at this point I'm being nit picky.
Seasoned fresh chicken. Easily the best chicken and waffles in the Bay Area. The coffee here is good.
