Not gonna lie...it was delicious. We drove out of our way (going to savannah) because we saw this on Tripple D. We were very impressed with the chicken and waffles, very interesting combo of sweet (syrup) and savory (honey mustard). My son had an omelette with fried okra which he practally licked his plate. My lil guy had chicken tenders with buttered beans and ate 90% (a record for him). If ever in the area...stop by :)

I can't imagine any place in Charleston being better than this. Small restaurant with tight parking. Lots of great art on the walls for sale. I had fried chicken with mushroom sage gravy, collard greens and fried green tomatoes. All of which were cooked to perfection. Wife had chicken and waffles, that seemed to be cinnamon flavored, Chicken served with a honey mustard sauce she left on the side.Wide arrangement of clientele from college kids to older folks.

Saw on DDD and saved for "brunch" on way out of town. I had chicken and waffles, hubby had their version of eggs Benedict. All I can say is, YUM! We would eat there every other day if we were locals!

It's a small diner, but serves great food. Be prepared for a smaller parking lot, especially at busy times, but it's worth it. We were there for breakfast and got the chicken and waffles. The combination of the sweet waffle and maple syrup with the fried chicken and honey mustard created a flavor explosion! Very awesome and would get this again.

Like many I am sure, we went because of triple D... went for breakfast, waffles and chicken held us for the whole day. Really loved the way each meal, once begun, is available the whole day. So, breakfast all day, lunch from lunchtime to closings, dinner from dinner time until closing. Get the FGT, a BLT with fried green tomatoes and the NANA PUDDING. Relaxed, friendly, perfect.
