Known for its signature style of southern comfort food, Chicago’s Home of Chicken and Waffles has quickly become one of Bronzeville’s most iconic restaurants. Located near 39th and King Drive, it opened in 2008 and serves some of the region’s best chicken and waffles. Owner Tonya Johnson has a secret waffle ingredient mix, and their famous chicken is carefully cooked in a cast-iron skillet. Other popular menu options include omelets, skillets, seafood, sandwiches, and salads. Everything is made fresh with no frozen or canned ingredients in the kitchen, and breakfast, lunch, and dinner options are served all day. It’s easily accessible from downtown and a can’t-miss restaurant on Chicago’s near south side.
