  • The claims to fame here are The Rev. Al Sharpton and The Tommy Tomita, pairings of juicy chicken and fluffy waffles.
  • Home of Harlems best chicken and waffles. As seen on Travel Channels Man v. Food Nation.
  • Chicken and Waffles! Worth the ride all the way up to 116th st.
  • Had chicken and Waffles!
  • Open until 5:30am, this is the best fried chicken hot spot to hit up after a late night out on the weekend!
  • For authentic soul food, look no further than Amy Ruth's in Harlem. Everything on the menu is good but its the chicken and waffles that we love.
  • Warning: the food here gets you high. Make necessary provisions.
  • The lady at the counter was new but she was hilarious. I ordered to go but I got a sample of the food and it was pretty good. Opens LATE!
  • Honey Fried Chicken is the business...
  • Order the white smothered Al Sharpton (white meat fried chicken and waffle smothered with gravy).
  • I went with a large group and discovered the service was impeccable! The Mac and Cheese with the fried chicken and fried whiting were delicious!! Topped off with the Banana Pudding, our meal was great
  • Don't forget to put your name on the list at the door before you patiently wait at the back of the line.
  • Fried okra is bomb!
  • Get the chicken wings and waffels
  • My favs: waffles (so light and fluffy); chicken wings; Mac and cheese; red velvet and peach cobbler! Whew!
  • Its not on the menu, but ask for honey-dipped wings and waffles! It will change your life!!! I dream about this meal when I am not in New York!!!
  • Seconding the recommendation for the Al Sharpton smothered with gravy. The red velvet cake is also amazing.
  • Go to Amy Ruth's and order fried chicken and waffles. Douse with hot sauce and maple syrup. Enjoy.
  • the Al Roker wit mac n' cheese and fried okra.. forget chicken and waffles, unless you're sharing, then get both!
  • Chicken & waffles are so good that I can never try anything else!
