    Everything is so good! Get the chicken & waffles with the biscuits. Also, make reservations to avoid a long wait.

    The fried chicken waffle sandwich and rhubarb pie is excellent. Great for brunch too with minimal wait even at 11

    The chicken definitely lives up to the hype. And the grits are EVERYTHING!

    I wanted to love this place but the food just misses the mark. The chicken is missing spice, specifically it lacks heat to liven it up and balance the sweetness from the tea brine and citrus powder.

    Local tip: grab your order to go and eat in the garden next door if the wait is too long.

    Craving chicken & waffles? Head to Root & Bone for chicken brined in sweet tea. We recommend the chicken & waffle sandwich or the shrimp & grits! Read more

    The fried chicken is fantastic. Very crispy and not greasy at all. Their waffles and biscuits were also amazing.

    A full bucket of bird is a lot of fried chicken (8 pieces!). But cold fried chicken makes for delicious leftovers.

    There's usually a crowd but the homemade honey-Tabasco sauce alone is worth the wait. Read more

    Fried chicken basket. Side of waffles. Both AMAZING Do that, rather than the chicken and waffles sandwich, I promise.

    Absolutely must get the fried chicken. The BLT, deviled eggs and mac and cheese are also amazing.

    Excellent waffles and fried chicken. It gets crowded, but worth the wait for a table.

    The fried chicken is great! There was a 2hr wait, so just go to the take-out area ... It takes 10min

    Great mac and cheese and cocktails. Deviled eggs were good but only 3 of them. Skip the shrimp and grits they were too soggy and too many onions.

    Best fried chicken in NYC, far as I can tell, thanks to the sweet tea brining. Learn just how much pimento cheese can do for all foods.

    Not great brunch. Maybe dinner is better. Chicken & waffles are pre-made, get reheated upon ordering. Biscuits are good, but go to Sweet Chick or Pies n Thighs for significantly better fried chicken.
