We headed to Funk 'n Waffles for breakfast on our recent trip to Syracuse. They had a wide variety of waffles to choose and it took a bit of time to make a decision. I went with the sweet side of the menu and went with the Earth, Wind. and Fire which is a whole wheat waffle with bananas and... More

Strange location, in a basement, but very cool atomsphere for a Waffle House. Employees were very nice and let us take our time. Food was good and had many different waffles to chose from. If I'm ever in the area again, I'd go back for sure!

I ordered chicken and waffles. The chicken was crispy but a little dry and the buttermilk waffle was okay but nothing special. It actually tasted a little bit sour from the homemade buttermilk used. I like my waffles crispy on the outside but light and fluffy inside the way Belgian waffles would be and can only be achieved by using... More

Amazing!!! The bacon-stuffed waffle with fried eggs and cheddar had me mesmerized. If I could, I'd go there every weekend. The locals ARE SO LUCKY!!!

Don't let the appearance fool you. This place is a total dive down a some grimy stairs but it is so worth going. I saw Funk n Waffles on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and decided I HAD to go. We were a bit surprised and put off by the appearance, but the menu selection was amazing. The service is pretty... More

Don't ask me why, but I was craving chicken and waffles while in the Syracuse area and this place came up on Google... I had no idea what to expect but I'm glad we stopped in despite the incredible dive appearance of this hole! It's actually disgusting now thinking back on the whole thing. My wife and I ordered 3...

We each tried a different item and shared. We liked them all! Jive turkey, all shook up and bootsy brunch. Too full for a dessert but they looked great

We planned on going to funk n waffles after reading about it online. It was a slow Tuesday night without too many customers and it still took our chicken n waffles an unusually long time to be prepared. There was also a band scheduled to play at 6, but didn't start until after 7. It is clearly meant for the... More

Being big fans of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, we decided we'd frame our meals for our weekend in Syracuse around places that have been on the show! It was our first time searching out featured restaurants (or dives!) and we decided to hit Funk 'n Waffles for a late breakfast/lunch. This is not a diner. It is not a drive-in.... More

Ok, I know what you are thinking, because DDD went there, its going to be over rated, busy, and not at all what you saw on TV. WRONG. This was just as good as it looked and met every expectation we had. Full discloser is was not that easy to find, it really is tucked away downstairs, so watch your... More
