Fried Chicken and Waffles, KC

One of my favorite breakfast spots in Kansas City is Niece's at about 57th and Prospect (or so -- there's another location at 63rd and Blue Ridge, which I've never been to). I love Niece's for a number of reasons, the greatest of which is the fried Chicken and Waffles that they serve up all day long.

There's something about starting your day with a few crispy chicken wings and one huge, delicious, waffle that is such a mixture of guilt and satisfaction -- I tend to spend the rest of my day telling people that I had fried chicken and waffles for breakfast just to see the look on their face!

Aside from the novelty of the thing, I really like the meal for its food qualities. I'm not sure of what sort of batter is used to fry the wings in, but they really are my favorite fried chicken wings, save for the offerings at Go Chicken Go. The waffle is a waffle -- I really can't tell one from the other, but I've never had one I didn't like.

Oh, if you want to try out Niece's but Chicken and Waffles isn't your bag, they also have really good chicken an dressing!

  1. I LOVE Go Chicken Go. I swear, my dad raised me on Livers and Gizzards (or as a kid, Lizzards and Gizzards) and hot sauce. They have the best rolls slathered in butter. Ahhh...that brings back memories.

    1. Oh, why oh why do you have to give me another vice?!? Now I have to try both Niece's and Go Chicken Go! (Everytime I drive by Go Chicken Go it makes me chuckle a little bit, but I knew it looked so ghetto it had be good!) I've always wanted to try chicken and waffles and I didn't know we had a place that served it, so I know where I'm making my hubby take me our next lazy Saturday! :-)

        Oh, Katie, Go Chicken Go is the living end. And, it's consistent -- so whether you go to the one I grew up on at 7th Street in KCK, or the one across the street from UMKC on Troost, or even the one in Olathe (old 69 hwy), it's always very good. One piece of advice -- I always recommend that one try the strawberry soda with their Go Chicken Go; it's sort of like grape pop and BBQ, they just go together.

          Ah, good tip about the pop! In Topeka, it's grape pop with Harold's Prize Package cheeseburgers!

            I love that yellow gravy. Looks pretty nasty but really tastes great. And they do have the best livers. There is one at about 82nd and State Ave in KCK too.

          1. FYI, it's "Niecie's" rather than "Niece's", not to pick nits.

            I'm on board for chicken and waffles. They also offer a pig ear sandwich, which while interesting, looks somewhat less appetizing:

              AKK! I live just up the street from the 63rd St Niecie's location. Now I am going to HAVE to try it. Maybe this weekend.

                It almost sounds like we need to have a big Chowhound Breakfast at Niece's!

                    I'm certainly game, too...feel free to send me an email at aarondeacon at hotmail dot com, as on-board event planning is off-topic, becomes chatty and distracting, and dilutes the chow resource.
