Lillie Mae’s House of Soul Food

If you want a classic chicken and waffles (and soul food) and happen to be in San Jose area, then look no further than Lillie Mae’s House of Soul Food. It’s sister restaurant, Lillie Mae’s House of Chicken & Waffle closed down and recently merged into the House of Soul Food.

Dave and I hit this spot on August 23rd for lunch and found a gem to rival the best.  We both opted for the standard chicken and waffles, what else would you get!

I also grabbed a side of hush puppies. I can’t turn down a good hush puppy!

We then had to wash it down with none other than sweet tea and grape Kool Aid.

I have to say, we both ate far too much and would’ve ended up in a food coma if weren’t for the Cortado’s we had afterwards at Roy’s Station Coffee & Tea (side note, great Cortado!).

Lillie Mae’s reminded me of why I love the classic chicken and waffle – when you’ve hit perfection, no need to mess with it.
