Anybody been to Amy Ruth's recently? Would you still recommend it?

I'm considering going for lunch tomorrow. Anything you could recommend?

  1. They make the best waffles I've ever had and people have raved about their chicken and waffles. I've also enjoyed their BBQ ribs and salmon croquettes. Was not particular pleased with other fish dishes I've had (salmon, whiting).

    1. If you live in NYC and are here every day, check it out and enjoy. I like the Al Sharpton, fried wings and waffles. If you're only here a few days, its kind of out of the way and not really good enough to waste a meal on.

      1. I live around the corner, and while my aversion to fried food keeps me out of the place, my father - who visited at Christmas - raved about the chicken for weeks. He said is was one of two best fried chicken meals he ever had. And his recollection of the other is suspect because it came at the end of a thirty mile hike on a very cold day.

        He has really got me thinking I may need to wander over and at least get some waffles.

        1. Yes, we went pretty recently and loved it. Get anything with waffles.



          1. go, enjoy. their fried chicken is great, remarkably ungreasy feeling, the batter could be more flavorful but it's good nonetheless. DON'T get the lemonade-- unless you really really really like sugar.
