|Waffles Best - $9.95|
It's no secret that I'm a major foodie and I might be slightly addicted to The Food Network; which is where I learned about Chicago Waffles, 1400 S. Michigan Ave. 60605. It's open for breakfast, brunch and even a late lunch. Monday through Friday, 7am-3pm and weekends 7am-4pm.
The bright colors on the walls are refreshing and happy. The atmosphere was relaxed with mixed seating including long bench seating, intimate table and chairs and stools to sit at the bar. The staff was friendly and helpful with assisting us with our menu selections.
From the front door to the table signage, they advertise their $4.99 Bacon Chicken Waffle, let's just say the advertising worked. They had lots of great deals, so it's definitely a place you can eat a great meal and not break the bank.
This was chicken and waffles done right! The waffle was light and fluffy on the inside and firmer on the outside, just how I like them.
Red Velvet Waffle, topped with fresh strawberries, walnuts and chocolate sauce - $9.95.
This was one of the waffles I really wanted to try. This took my taste buds to a happy place where dessert and breakfast met, had a baby and this was it, IJS!
Homemade Red Diced Potatoes And Onion - $3.95
We ordered a variety of items off the menu and did some sharing because we wanted to try it all. Each dish came with two waffles, with the five of us there was plenty to go around. The portions were large, so bring your appetite.
Cheddar And Short Rib Waffle, Cheddar waffle served with our braised short ribs topped with more cheddar and chives - $13.95.
For a more savory offer, we tried the cheddar and short rib waffle. This tasted like something out of grandma's kitchen. The short ribs were cooked to perfection, very tender and flavorful. The waffle was great for sopping up all that gravy.
We enjoyed our meals and will definitely return to Chicago Waffles, next time we're in the Windy City.
