Add This to Your Food Bucket List…PLEASE!

I was so happy my day started out with an hour and thirty minute workout and then finished with a 4 mile run…all so I could consume some incredible sweet tea and finger licken chicken and waffles (and there was a lot of finger licken happening with this meal). That’s dedication my friends! 😉
So, as I made my way to the Lo-Lo’s on Scottsdale road, I noticed the big logo on a brand new building, an absolutely beautiful building about a mile north of where I always knew their location to be. I went inside and was greeted by Antjuan the General Manager, I was amazed at how awesome this building was. It was obviously built from the ground up and had such unique style unlike any restaurant i’ve seen here in Arizona, a combination of reclaimed wood, bricks, metals, and great use of glass gars for lighting.
I took a seat at the bar and started with a large mason jar of the best and absolutely positively the sweetest tea I’ve ever tasted. I literally could not stop drinking it, thank god the food arrived. My plate, was the world famous Chicken & Waffles, delivered with a piping hot syrup jar (so hot I was encouraged to use a napkin to pick it up). So after doing what I was instructed, I proceeded to pour my syrup all over my chicken and waffle. Growing up I always did the same with my sausage and waffles (or pancakes) so I couldn’t wait to try it with chicken. And not that you need me to tell you…it was perfect. The chicken and spices that Larry (aka as Lo-Lo) still mixes personally for each restaurant, is done to perfection. This is a dish that you must add to your food bucket list…please!!
If for some crazy reason you have yet to try Lo-Lo’s for yourself…plan a day within the next couple of weeks and get a little workout in before you go.
P.S. Gilbert, you’re about to score big with the addition of the newest Lo-Lo’s in downtown Gilbert!! And if you’re a frequent traveler, find the Lo-Lo’s in Sky Harbor! Would be a great meal before a long flight!
