Good place to find chicken and waffles in Jacksonville?

I'm new to Jacksonville Florida and wanted to know where can I find a good chicken and waffle place to eat at.

  1. The Metro Diner 3302 Hendricks ave serves great Fried Chicken and waffles, it is a 1/2 chicken(leg,thigh,wing, and breast) a full belgium waffle topped with a to die for strawberry butter. First time I tasted it I thought it was strawberry icecream. They serve a maple syrup with louisiana Hot sauce mixed together to dip your chicken in. Diva99 Metro Diner is a must try for fried chicken and waffles.

    1. I agree with Marcus. The Metro has a legit plate of chicken and waffles. I am not a waffle aficionado, so any type of waffle would have worked for me. However, when put on the spot, I usually go with fried chicken as my favorite food. The fried chicken at the Metro is really, really good - crispy skin with a nice flavor (and spice) to the meat. (For me, the fried chicken at the Metro blows away Beach Road (which is overrated).)

      Strawberry butter, syrup, and hot sauce is also an incredible combination.

        Have to add a third. I had it last week, split a plate with my grandson- waffle was excellent and fried chicken was some of the best I ever had. we thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
