All that touristing around made us very hungry and I have to tell you that I couldn't have been more excited as the plan was to go to Lo-Lo's Chicken and Waffles! I have been wanting to go to this place ever since I first visited Phoenix a few years ago but it just never worked out. Now here we are!
There are 5 locations of Lo-Lo's and I don't know about the others but this one is modern and comfortable. The sound track was hip even if it was a little loud and the servers were friendly and seemed to be willing to help each other out (as well as us).
|Chicken and Waffles|
The waffles here are spectacular! They are on the thin side so more crispy and less doughy with a nice hint of cinnamon making them the perfect vehicle for syrup...and chicken. And really good fried chicken too! Crunchy with a moist interior. We ate a lot of it!
|Three Pieces Southern Fried Chicken with two sides|
We ate it with Collard Greens, Mac and Cheese and Corn Muffins. Marie and I were smart enough to share an entree this time which made it just right. I loved the greens. They had just a hint of al dente (I now its a pasta term) and were not too soft. And the mac and cheese was very rich and creamy!
|Three Pieces Smothered Fried Chicken with two sides|
We ate it smothered with Rice and Gravy and Potato Salad. And we ate it as fingers with Rice and Gravy and Fries. For the record,there were 6 of us having this late lunch.

And the menu here offers a lot of choices. Obviously, we did not get to the catfish, red fish, biscuits, grits or desserts... I know that if I lived near here that I would soon need to have Dr. Nowzaradan on the speed dial (not so funny...I know that obesity is not a joke). Let's just say the food is rich and delicious and the atmosphere welcoming!
