Keith’s Chicken And Waffles

If you want to feel like a true southerner then you have to go south of San Francisco, just south of the Excelsior into Daly City.  Keith, the owner and chef at Keith’s Chicken and Waffles, is a born and bred Alabama man, and he serves fried chicken the way it’s supposed to be. Family recipe of spices, and every order fresh from the fryer, makes the chicken unbelievably flavorful and juicy.


As, a true southerner, you won’t get a small waffle here. All waffles are the size of a plate, and made to order with cinnamon, blueberries, and whatever you’re fixin for. Add a side dish of collared greens, coleslaw, or their “Bomb” Mac & Cheese, and you will be transported right into an Alabama kitchen.
