Recently opened Jorge’s Chicken & Waffles swoons to the tune of The Harlem Renaissance, with old record covers holding menus to posters and other decor bringing back that jazz feeling. Let’s not forget about that food.
To start we ordered the jalapeno mac & cheese and the shrimp ceviche & avocado. The ceviche is not an item I would think to order at a chicken & waffle place but man was it good. A whole avocado filled with fresh ceviche. Since I knew I couldn’t take it home, I ate it all before the main meal came. It’s a great dish to start with because of how light it is, especially going into eating the chicken & waffles breakfast style entree. The mac & cheese had a nice kick to it but if you’re going to chose only one item to start with, we will steer you towards the ceviche!The chicken & waffles breakfast style comes with a large crispy waffle that we slathered with butter and fresh syrup, two eggs, a nice juicy chicken breast with the owner’s blend of seasoning on it and a side of country gravy. Everything you could possibly wish for and enjoy, this dish will fill you up for the entire day.
You didn’t think I could pass up on dessert did you? We tried out the strawberry waffle shortcake, layers of delicious strawberry, waffles and whip cream and the brownie waffle, brownie batter topped with vanilla ice cream. I was full but couldn’t stop eating the desserts, how can you not love a brownie waffle or waffles and strawberries.
Jorge’s Chicken & Waffles is open late and they have music on the patio. We hear they are the place to be on the weekends and especially on Sunday, so if you head down that way during those times, maybe call ahead to make a reservation.
