Taste N See Chicken and Waffles

Try This: Chicken & Blueberry Waffles

There aren't many guarantees in life, but here's one: You're bound to have a blast at Fort Worth's first official chicken and waffles restaurant. Tables are cramped together so you get to know your neighbors pretty quickly, gospel music — or a Cowboys game, whichever comes first — plays in the background, and everyone hunkers down on the restaurant's namesake sweet and savory dish, brought to life here on the south side by son-and-mom team DeMarcus Davis and Anita Wilcox.

A single order is big enough for two. Three large fried chicken wings crown each extra-thick waffle, twice the size of a Belgian.

The waffles, made in-house, come plain but can come jazzed up with extras — chocolate chips, blueberries, bacon or pecans.

Some restaurants that have jumped on the chicken-and-waffles trend serve tenders; Taste N See’s version comes with bone-in chicken wings, juicy and crusty and beautifully seasoned. They’re more difficult to eat, but it makes for a more authentic experience, not to mention more complexity and flavor. But for the bone-in-chicken-challenged, tenders are available.
