The Best Chicken and Waffles in Toronto

We've scoured the city and have compiled a list of the best fried chicken and waffles in Toronto. The sweet and savoury combination of chicken and waffles makes for an incredible meal no matter what time of day. Between the crunchy crust of fried chicken and the soft pillowy waffle -- the duo is truly a match made in heaven. The origin of fried chicken and waffles is a bit of a contested one; with several theories circulating, it is hard to narrow down the exact details of the dishes history, but it is pretty unanimous that it does hail from America's south. No matter how the evolution of fried chicken and waffles came to be, we sure are glad that it did come into fruition. With that being said, here are the best restaurants for fried chicken and waffles in the city.

Rankings determined by you!

The order of the results in our guides are solely determined by our users.

1

Roux

Yardbird and Waffles

Yardbird and Waffles

You know you can trust the fried chicken at a restaurant that bills itself as Southern Creole and proclaims that north is the new south. Their Yardbird and Waffles ($15) on buttermilk bran waffles, comes smothered in bourbon maple syrup.

2

The White Brick Kitchen

Medium Spice Fried Chicken and Waffles

Medium Spice Fried Chicken and Waffles

You can customize your chicken and waffle plate at this modern diner that sits a stone’s throw from Christie Pits Park. We recommend the four piece dark meat ($15.50) with medium spice or atomic spice -- if you’re feeling adventurous.

3

Love Chix

Caramel Fried Chicken and Waffles

Caramel Fried Chicken and Waffles

Visit their full space on Dupont or their setup in Assembly Chef’s Hall on Richmond to try one of their rotating chicken and waffle creations. Past offerings have had salted caramel or spicy honey glaze so you’ll have to keep coming back to see what’s new.

4

The Stockyards Smokehouse and Larder

Stockyard's Fried Chicken and Waffles

Stockyard's Fried Chicken and Waffles

The Stockyards lives by the slogan, “If lovin’ fried chicken is wrong, I don’t wanna be right!”, and we couldn’t agree more. Their signature fried chicken and waffles ($12) comes glazed in their maple molasses citrus sauce to make a perfect Sunday brunch choice -- and is guaranteed to sell out fast!

5

Cluck Clucks

Twaco

Twaco

Cluck Cluck’s has taken the deceptively simple chicken and waffle recipe to a whole new level. They have classics like the boneless Holy Cluck ($12.25) and Mother Clucker ($13.44), as well as inventive creations like the Twaco ($13.44) on a jalapeño cheddar waffle.

6

The Dirty Bird Chicken + Waffles

The ODB

The ODB

Tuck into one of Dirty Bird’s several different variations of chicken and waffles, like the classic three piece Up North Trip ($15.95) with maple butter and a choice of side. They also just opened a location at Pearson Airport in Terminal 1 so you can even get your fix before boarding your flight.

7

Jerk Paradise

Island Fried Chicken and Waffles

Island Fried Chicken and Waffles

Head to this Regent Park hidden gem for a Caribbean twist on an old classic. Their signature jerk chicken is fried and put on top of their fresh-made waffles ($11.99), that you can pair with one of their authentic Caribbean juices or sodas.

8

School

Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles

Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffles

School in Liberty Village offers so much more than cereal-crusted French toast. Their buttermilk fried chicken and waffles ($22) comes with brown sugar butter and hot honey sauce for drizzling.
