Fried chicken and waffle at Lucky's Oh my!

So last night I head into Luckys to have a burger or something and a beer or two. I see that on the new menu they have fried chicken and a waffle. Being a true southerner I had to order it.

OH MY! it was beyond good. The chicken was perfectly moist and flavourful. the fried skin was seasoned with a very corn flake like breading and wonderful herbs with a little almost chili kick to it. The waffle was very nice, a little crispy but not over cooked, however it could have been a bit warmer.
The lavender maple syrup was a great addition and a great way to calm the spice of the chicken.

there was mashed potato on the plate as well, however I did not need that as I ate every bite of the chicken and waffle.

It was amazing! and I may even return tonight for another one!

  1. No Lucky's in South Boston? I just want to make sure I'm thinking of the same place where I sometimes have drinks with friends after work. The place with no sign out front, near Ft Pt Channel? If so, I know what I'm ordering the next time I go there!!

        Debbie, I 100% share your enthusiasm and passion for this news - I shall be doing some chowvestigative reporting shortly. :)

          Alas, now that Bob the Chef's is gone, perhaps this is the last place one can get the chik-n-waffle combo!

            Gargoyle's currently has chicken & waffles on the bar menu and also on their Sunday brunch menu (not sure how long it will be there). My sister absolutely loved it. I thought it was tasty but perhaps a little cloying and heavy. It had a maply gravy with little chunks of ham.

        2. I tried some food there for the first time in years. I thought the wings and mini burgers were outstanding. The food was much better than the previous time I ate there. They must have reconcentrated their efforts on the kitchen.

            1. Truly a dish that makes you proud to be an American. First time I had it was in NYC and it was served with both gravy and syrup. Awesome; I fell in love. Last time I had it was at Neptune, pre-Nevins' departure, and it came with fig syrup. Lavender sounds like a neat contrast too.
              Lucky's always was way better than it had to be.

                You know, that is a perfect description of Lucky's food: Better than it had to be. I've always known it as a bar....then when I get food to go with the drinks, the quality is surprisingly good for food one gets at a bar.

                  I have had it both with gravy, a maple gravy and with just syrup. i prefer the syrup. I guess I eat a few bites of chix and then dunk the waffle bite.

                  ok drooling again. has anyone been to check it out?

              2. Is there a T stop close to Lucky's? Is the best way to take the Red Line to South Station, then walk past the Children's Museum?

                  Yes, that is the best way, and it is a really short walk from South Station.
