“Chicken & Waffles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We visit this place whenever in the area. The staff is friendly & efficient. The atmosphere has a diner feel with great soulful old school music. Most importantly the chicken & waffles & fish with grits are tasty & hearty. The price is affordable for the serving size. We'll be back !!!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Just ate the chicken & waffles with a side of the spicey gumbo for lunch today (only bad thing is that..they forgot to put my strawberries in my take-out order)... the food was deee-licious...I would highly recommend this to all my family & friends. Looking forward to stopping by on my way home from work Saturday to pick up the $5 chicken & waffle special. Can't wait!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We frequent this place for lunch. They have pretty good chicken and waffles, which is well known. If you go for lunch, make sure to get there a few minutes before noon otherwise you will be waiting to get a table.

“Not one to pass up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

New Center Eatery is one of the best places to dine for Southern cuisine. The Chicken and Waffles are OuTsTANDING! My husband enjoys the CYO Omelette. I've also ordered the Barb's Spicy Gumbo, I have not eaten pork in 35 years, I don't care, this gumbo is outstanding! Yes, it's small, seating is limited, etc...however, well worth the wait or inconvenience! Side note: my salmon croquettes are better...lol
