There’s something special about a great platter of chicken and waffles. It’s a delectable treat that’s always satisfying, offering something for both the sweet and salty taste buds. Michigan offers plenty of great spots to grab a plate of chicken and waffles, and now, one has been ranked the best. Truth be told, I actually don’t eat chicken, because I’m a vegetarian, but waffles with thick, sweet syrup- yes, please.

LoveFOOD recently conducted a study to find the best chicken and waffles in Michigan. How fun would it be to participate in that study? Chicken and waffles make for a nostalgic, feel-good food dining experience, and the publication states, “A superb combination of sweet and savoury, these chicken and waffle dishes range from familiar classics to unexpected and exciting takes on the flavours we all love. Despite the variations of this soul food you’ll find across America, these recipes all have one thing in common – customers absolutely adore them.”

So, where can you find the best chicken and waffles in Michigan? According to the study, Ma Lou’s Fried Chicken in Ypsilanti.

“Fried chicken lovers will find heaven here as Ma Lou’s Fried Chicken offers a mouthwatering menu of all things poultry,” LoveFOOD states in the study. “Their fried chicken tacos and creative banh mi are both highly rated, as is the chicken and waffles plate served with lashings of syrup. Rated a perfect dish, people praise the juicy and crispy chicken as well as the fluffy waffle.” Rated a “perfect dish?” Sounds delicious to me. Find the full list here.
