Chicken crossed the road to meet the Waffle YUM

  LOVE my Chicken and Waffles always looking for these on the menu or it’s easy if a spot has Waffles just side order some Chicken Wings. My way of eating maybe diffident than others as everyone has a special way. I pick the meat of the drumette and twist the 2 bones outta the flats and top the waffle which is already loaded with butter and syrup. I then splatter some Franks hot sauce on top to devour.The trick is to fork a chuck of chicken on top of a waffle square for an explosive mouth full of flavor.

My favorite is from Gus and Us ,that truly has the largest bodacious wings ever, the plate is not listed on the menu as I’ve found it’s so easy to just order a waffle and wing dings at many places to satisfy my craving. I really like those soft flaky buttermilk type waffles, many place add a kicker to the plate like bacon and or egg along with other goodies to have mega fun eating a mouthful of blissfully yummy goodness.


The history of this dish dates back a few hundred years and became popular in Harlem at the all night Jazz clubs in New York. A chain called Roscoe’s has a large following on the west coast along with many other smaller chains mainly in the southern states. You can have any type of chicken with your waffle,,,strips,breast along with drumettes are all the very in thing.So now go on down to your local eating place that has waffles and order some chicken to mix togehter for a true bit of classic American food.

Hillbilly Iron Skillet Cornbread & Buttermilk I found it YUM

As a child a favorite late night snack was left over cast iron skillet cornbread chunked into a big glass of Buttermilk and salted to taste,,,for many years I’ve searched for a true southern eating spot around metro Detroit that has this,,, finally a great place called Zenith Lunch has it everyday along with Hillbilly steaks and Spam on the menu along with the most amazing Pineapple Upside Down cake.

$ 5 meals WOW Great Clean Friendly
For over 40 years this spotless clean country style eating spot is the gem of downriver and beyond.The meal prices will double wow you all are under $ 5 except 2 on menu and those are full plate meals with veggie’s, taters,bread and entree. Homemade chicken & dumplings, meatloaf, chicken and many more. The outstanding soups change daily and get this only $ 1.80 for a big bowl, I just don;t know how they do it. Breakfast specials under $3 and house made cakes and pies, Pineapple Upside down cake the best ever.

The menu has Bologna and Spam on it how cool is this along with cast iron skillet cornbread just like grandma used to make and comes with the meal instead of bread or 50 cent per large hot slice. Not the best surprise of all the have buttermilk which I ordered and added that corn bread to eat just as a kid in the 60’s for that late night snack, never have I see this in a eating spot in Michigan WOW SO GOOD ,,,, I will be a regular and you will too, you cant buy a burger at most places for under a 5 bucks let alone a hole dam meal and it’s all super too,
