Gussie’s Chicken and Waffles
I’ve had Gussie’s before, but it was my boyfriends first time. And boyyyyyy did he love it! The wait was long of course, it’s Sunday after church get’s out. People wanted that good ‘ol southern style cooking
I got the “Taste of the South”. My usual, fried chicken, yams, greens, and cornbread. I love it. I cannot and will not get enough. The chicken was fried to perfection, it wasn’t too dry nor too juicy. Just the way I like it. They don’t give as big as portions at place we went last week, but it sure did feel me up just the same. And oh, the cornbread, honey let me tell you! The cornbread was just the way grandma makes it back in Alabama! Not dry at all, with a little honey drizzled on the top right before it goes into the oven. Scrumptious, for lack of a better word. I had a sweet tea to wash it all down. No bottemless mimosas this time y’all. But, this meal was a total knock out! Literally, I knocked out as soon as I got home, this is why I am posting so late.
Chris got a “Side Sampler”, he had a choice from over 9 sides and chose red beans and rice, southern corn, black eyed peas, and collard greens. You know I’m greedy, so I tried the red beans and rice, which was delicious. He said they weren’t as good as last weeks because he could taste the onions. We both hate onions, but he can barely tolerate it. I also tried the southern corn, yuck! It looks and tastes like baby food to me. No disrespect to the restaurant or anyone who likes it, it just isn’t my cup of tea. He ate it all though, but thats my big baby! He cleaned his plate like it was nobodies business, so I know that means he throughly enjoyed his meal! Oh, black eyed peas aren’t my thing, so I didn’t bother trying them. Plus I wouldn’t have anything to compare them too! But if you go and you try it, tell me what y’all think!
