Dining In: Durham, NC - Dame's Chicken and Waffles

We've never had Chicken and Waffles despite hearing about it in Texas and now in Durham. After being inspired from my sister's recent chicken and waffle meal, we ended up at Dame's Chicken and Waffles in downtown Durham.

The sweet waffles and syrup work really well with the seasoned batter of the fried chicken. We had The Carolina Cockerel (trio of chicken wings) and A Red Crested Rose-Comb (duo of drumsticks).

There was a massive line, but a surprisingly short wait. And just when you are thinking that fried chicken and waffles are definitely going to set you back on your "healthy eating" goals, every entree comes with your choice of either rosemary mac and cheese, homemade grits, or a fruit bowl.

We clearly did not get the fruit bowl.

The strawberry and toasted almond shmears were delicious. The classic waffle had a great cinnamon hint. Overall, a great experience for a chicken and waffles newbie and unique addition to the Durham food scene.
