Nowadays, seeing chicken and waffles on a menu is as common as having an ad pop up on your browser for that air fryer you put in your cart 45 seconds ago. But Gritz Cafe is a reminder of how good this dish can be - though their menu covers a lot more ground, with things like po’boys, grits, and hot-link omelets. When you need to feel like you’re not in Vegas for an hour or two, head here for the large portions, kind service, and food you usually find on a different coast.
