The O Waffle at The Oliver
By Sarah Gish and Andrea Shores
The chicken and waffles trend is alive and well at The Oliver
The restaurant at 4807 Jefferson St. on the Country Club Plaza serves a classic (and delicious) version of the soul food classic at brunch, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
The O Waffle with fried chicken ($15) is a rich, golden masterpiece served with honey butter and maple syrup. The chicken is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Texas Pete hot sauce gives the strips their spicy cayenne kick.
Fans of spicy brunch dishes should also consider The Oliver’s tasty chorizo breakfast tacos ($12) and green chile-infused Bloody Mary ($8). — S.G.
