Chicken and waffles is not supposed to be a fancy dish. But like all New American cuisine, it's about new takes on simple classics. This posh beach-adjacent eatery has done just that. Executive chef Chris Miracolo worked through trial-and-error to develop his ideal rendition of the sweet and savory recipe. Offered on the Sunday brunch menu, Miracolo's version features crisp boneless chicken served on a comforting sweet potato waffle. It's then topped with bacon butter and maple syrup. It tastes like southern-style thanksgiving without the gravy -- we consider that a good thing.

3. Betty's Soul Food

Chicken and waffles is the ultimate soul food dish. So, it only makes sense that it would be damn good in a soul food specific place. For over 30 years, this Sistrunk Blvd. eatery has been serving the best southern-style fare within the confines of Broward County -- and that was once saying something big. It has racked up numerous New Times' awards, including "Best Soul Food", "Best Fried Chicken," and "Best Comfort Food." Obviously, we think it's pretty swell. And the fried chicken and waffle ($7.99) is just as good as everything else.
