Before Melissa's Chicken & Waffles rolled into town, the combination of fried chicken and breakfast items seemed very strange to me. The truck seemed to be getting huge lines at all the food truck events, so I figured something good must be served there and I finally gave them a try.
I tried a Chicken & Waffle at the Lake Lily Food Truck Pod. I choose to have it topped with gravy since I wasn't feeling syrup on fried chicken. The whole thing was eaten like a huge sandwich with the waffle folded around the chicken. The batter on the chicken was nice and spicy and the gravy was tasty. In the end, it turned out to be far too much fried food for one serving, but the chicken & waffle was good regardless. I'd order this again...
On another occasion, I tried the Blueberry Cheesecake Waffle from Melissa's at the Firestone Food Truck Pod. This was more along the lines of what I would expect on a big waffle, topped with cheesecake, blueberries, whipped cream, and powdered sugar. Good, but the price on this waffle seemed a little high compared to the chicken waffle.
I'd definitely give Melissa's Chicken & Waffles another try. Since food trucks started getting big in Orlando, I've definitely expanded my food repertoire. Thanks to a food truck, I can now say I like chicken & waffles!
