Chicken and Waffles at Local Three

I didn’t grow up with soul food. I’ve never been to Gladys and Ron’s. Or Sylvia’s, for that matter. So chicken and pancakes isn’t sacrilegious to me. In fact, it’s quite delicious. And apparently a thing of necessity. “We have one of the largest kitchens in the Southeast,” one of the managers told me. “But that doesn’t include a waffle iron.” The result: a stack of fluffy cornmeal flapjacks topped with a cinnamon apple slaw and real maple syrup. On the side was a juicy chicken breast with a flaky, well-seasoned coating. It paired nicely with both the cornmeal cakes and the sweet syrup. While I missed the crispy texture of a waffle — and the tiny wells that capture syrup — I still managed to eat all of the chicken and most of the pancakes. Which I guess makes the dish sacrilicious. Local Three, 3290 Northside Parkway, Atlanta, GA (404) 968-2700 •
