Wow! We loved it so much, we ate here twice in one week. I brought my son who is at Duke with some of his classmates, and they all loved it too. I had the "what a classy hen" and it was delicious! The Mac and cheese side dish is a must too! The boys were very satisfied with their... More

I went with my family on a Monday. I was visiting from out of town and my son wanted me to try the restaurant. To start with, the dining room isn't very interesting, and it is cold (it was a chilly day). The waitress was very nice, but we think she forgot to put our ticket in because the order... More

My compadre and I both chose the classic chicken and waffles. The service was warm and impeccable. I would whole heartedly recommend to any passing visitor.

My family and I love this place. The chicken is absolutely delicious. The waffles are scrumptious, and we've tried many flavors. This is just simply the best place for chicken and waffles, which one wouldn't think would go together. It must be a southern thing, but they definitely go together. Dame's gives you shmears to go along with them. A... More

I know this is a popular place but I think it's a little overrated. The chicken was a little over seasoned and I don't quite understand those silly "shmears" or the stupid name for the butter options. It's not bad but no full bar and believe me when I say there is better fried chicken than here. More of a... More

The food here is great. The chicken and waffles are fantastic. And you can switch things up with changing out waffles and sauces and type of chicken. The sides are equally fantastic. And the servers are always really helpful with suggestions, and they are quick and always really nice. The only problem I have with this place is that I... More
