We thoroughly appreciate the option to get our fried chicken atop a waffle, and one of our fave spots to do just that is Hard Knox Cafe, which offers its perfectly crispy and golden brown fried chicken atop a buttermilk Belgian waffle. You can get the chicken regular or spicy, but we prefer spicy.
How to book: Reservations are available for the Outer Richmond location only. Order for pickup or delivery on ChowNow.
If your idea of barbecue is less smoky brisket and more saucy, baked goodness, this duo of Southern comfort eateries will hit the spot with their old-school chicken or spare ribs. The famous Fried Chicken is equally solid (pair it with a buttermilk Belgian waffle for a true taste of heaven), as are sides like Collard Greens and Black-Eyed Peas.
How to enjoy: Reservations are available for indoor and outdoor dining at the Clement Street. Walk-ins and indoor dining only for the SoMa location.
