When it comes to equipping disciples with the tools needed to dominate their fields, some institutions are simply a cut above, e.g., Cal Tech for would-be engineers, and ITT Tech for would-be accreditation. Equipped to dominate your mouth, Gussie's Chicken and Waffles. From a chick who cut her soul food chops at Oaktown's chicken/waffle mecca Roscoe's, Gussie's is the new go-to for that ubiquitous combo and more, with room for 100+ in a warmly lit dining room w/ a flat-screened bar, and sun-drenched front patio perfect for
getting fat on the sidewalk dining al fresco. First things first: Gussie's slings several types of homemade waffles -- buckwheat, banana pecan, sweet potato, and buttermilk -- the latter two of which're served w/ up to half a succulent n' crispy fried chicken and smothered in gravy and onions (optional), while the former go better w/ fresh fruit and maple syrup, according to the menu/your cardiologist. Fried bird also comes flanked by any number of savory sides, e.g., black-eyed peas, candied yams, collard greens, grits, etc, while big ol' specialty sandos include Louisiana fried catfish or red snapper on a fresh roll w/ veggies and house-made tartar, which ten out of ten dentists are reluctant to admit they're totally down with! Rounding out the menu's a bevy of choice dessert options, ranging from banana pudding with Nilla wafers, to a chocolate/Kahlua/coffee bundt cake, to a cream cheese frosted red velvet cake, equipping you with the tools to dominate yet another institution: Rochester Big and Tall.
