Chicken and Waffles?

I'm a native Seattle-ite yet despite my yelping and googling, I haven't managed to find any chicken and waffles restaurants (a la Roscoe's) in Seattle. Any recommendations for casual restaurants* serving chicken and waffles?

*Ventana has a great chicken and waffles dish on their menu. That said, I'm looking for a not so Belltown kind of spot.

  1. The Kingfish Cafe has chicken and waffles on their brunch menu. Another exceptional brunch dish are the biscuits and gravy at Emmer & Rye. These are on a whole new level and should be given some type of culinary award for making a humble dish into a religious experience.

      Thank you for the recommendation - can't wait to go!

    2. You could try Captain Blacks in the Capitol Hill area.
      Casual bar with chicken and waffles.

        Captain Black's is definitely a bar (21+ only, irritatingly loaded with capitol hill hipsters) but they have a great deck and the chicken and waffles are better than any I've had in the area.

        Kingfish's version is too fancy, IMO.

        Neither are like Roscoe's as an experience, though.

          I like CB's C&Ws too. It's been too long.

      2. Grinders on the Ave is supposed to have very good chicken and cornbread waffles as told by me from a friend. I hear it is off the menu.
