chicken and waffles.
for the last year or so, the Indianapolis Star has been running story after story about Maxine’s Chicken & Waffles.
located in the heart of downtown, this establishment has been recognized over and over again for their delicious cuisine.
when you drive by, you may be fooled by the gas station exterior, but i assure you, this is way more than a convenient coney dog.
a few weeks ago, my dad & Bro #2 dined & their amazing experience has been shared by anyone willing to listen more times than i’d care to count.
yesterday, after the festivities at the Indianapolis Zoo, six of us headed over to Maxine’s to taste what all the hype was about.
naturally, i ordered their most popular item, “Chicken and Waffles” with wings, not tenders— because i was told “there’s no other way to do it.”
vanilla, strawberry, blueberry or sweet potato were my waffle options & i decided the antioxidants of blueberries plus the peaches in their infamous peach butter would counteract all the sugar & fried goodness about to be ingested.
did they live up the hype? well, do you see the size of those wings! of course they did!
they were amazing…every last bite.
i can’t recommend Maxine’s enough.
between the food & the hospitality, it’s one [gas station] stop i’ll definitely make again.
