Don't be fooled by the "dive" nature of the place. The place has a cool vibe and the waffles were extraordinary. I had the Jive Turkey - a waffle made from stuffing topped with mashed potatoes, turkey and gravy with a side of cranberry sauce. Outstanding. I will definitely be back.

I have never before seen such a selection of waffles! This place is easy to miss, as it is in the basement of the building it occupies. We were in Syracuse for a visit to the University and someone mentioned that one of their business graduates started this restaurant. So, we had to find it! Amazing concept and huge variety... More

Holy mother of god, these waffles. I don't even know if I can call them waffles. It's like, imagine the most decadent waffle experience you could possibly imagine--this place is going to beat that dream. You want a nutella ice cream brownie waffle? You gonna get that. You wanna fried chicken waffle? You gonna get that too. You want brie... More

We were here in connection with an accepted students reception at SU. Obviously, my wife and I are not the customary clientele. Even past 60 I remain fine with dives where I appreciate the atmosphere and food, but this was not that type of place. The music was loud, and undistinguished more than funky, and the atmosphere more worn down... More

This place was on the syracuse university campus, so we came here after the billy joel concert. It looks like a hole in the wall, but it was such a fun atmosphere. There was live music and lots of cool art on the walls. The food wasnt anything special, but the place itself was why we came.

Oh boy, the new downtown location was a bad experience at brunch time on a recent Saturday. Truly a hot mess and horrible experience all the way around. The only thing keeping me from giving it one star was a decent ambiance, very good coffee, and ok food. Things started out rocky with a long wait in line culminating in... More

Recently went to a Syracuse game and stayed the night. When we woke up did a search for breakfast places, Denny's an here showed up. Plugged it into gps and off we went. It's down an alley and then down some stairs to a basement so I can see why Guy picked this for his show. The food didn't disappoint... More

I love the food and the service. The fact that the owner is one funky cat and a Bootsy Collins fan makes it even better. A local institution indeed and thankfully expanding to a 2nd location. Great guys great food and great service - where else would you want to go? Exactly - go here NOW
