Went to see Jack London Square, and was kind of disappointed that there weren't much to see and do. We parked at there parking complex so we decided to look around for a place to eat lunch where we can get a validation. This restaurant was just across the street, so we gave it a try.Unexpectedly, they did give us an hour validation, which was not enough, but still good. If you go on a busy weekend, expect to wait, but the food and friendly, joyful atmosphere of this place is worth it. Seemed like everyone here didn't mind the wait, instead just having a good time. Loved the people working here, everybody friendly, down to earth. We ordered "Angie's Delight" with grits and the recommended "Keith's Tackle" with mac n' cheese. Especially loved the sauce for their fried chicken. Just simple good old "soul food" at its best!

The service was very good. I found the staff to be friendly and attentive upon entering the restaurant.

The bar is well stocked and there are plenty of screens for you to watch any of the games during your meal.

The food was nice. I wouldn't say 'soul food at it's best' as stated on the menu, but it was good. If you're hungry and in the area, I would recommend you visit. The portions are quite large.

Big shout out to Moses for attentive,friendly service. It is inappropriately named home of the chicken and waffles because the stars of this restaurant were the cornbread and the fried chicken livers. Fried chicken needs better seasoning and the waffles could be fluffier.An OK choice if you are in the area.

The name says it all, chicken and waffles; and the chicken is fried, crispy and delicious and generally big portions. I liked the gravy that goes with it, and the waffles are thin and full of butter and syrup. Not a very full menu, but remember you came here for the chicken. My only complaint is that the bathrooms are often a mess. The service staff are friendly and fresh.
