Recently I was in Indianapolis for a business trip and we were headed back and my new friend and colleage Ali said she was hungry. She wanted something healthy - so she pulled out her phone and started searching. She stops and says "How about Chicken & Waffles?". Um healthy? But hey - I can't blame her for going with her gut. :-)
We decided to head to Maxine's Chicken & Waffles in Downtown Indianapolis. The only chicken & waffles I have had before was Taste of Belgium - this is not that - and for me - that's a good thing. I'm not the biggest fan of Taste - it's fine - but the waffles are a little too heavy and the chicken was dry when I went - so I'm fine with trying something else.
I mandated that we try the fried corn bread ($1.25) served with peach butter. For the bargain price - I could have just ordered 5 of these for dinner! I love the Johnny Cakes at Butt Shack - and these were very similar. I love cornbread - so then you make it bite-size and fry it in butter - yeah - I can't help but love that! The peach butter is their specialty (you can buy it in larger quantities too) and it's worth trying for sure! It's not overly peachy but it does have an extra sweetness and little pieces of peach. So delicious!
Why Should You Go? There's plenty of "fancy" food in Indy - but if you're near downtown - this is NOT to be missed!
