This store is one of my go-to lunch stops whenever I'm in San Diego (near the 32nd St Naval Base). The fried chicken and fish are excellent. They also have a number of interesting sides to go with it. It's a good place to go with a group because there are a number of other eateries in the same strip... More

I got the chicken and waffles there and it was nothing special, the waffles were soggy. Probably won't return.

Don't know what's worse the clientele or the management--no wait, I do. The idiots that run this place are unbelievable. Was really looking forward to my first experience with chicken and waffles, but guess I'll have to wait. Showed up after lunch rush hour but workers were still overwhelmed and disorganized in feeble attempts to take orders. Five employees running... More

I decided to try the fried chicken at this National City establishment just off the I5 at National Avenue and was pleasantly surprised at the size and quality of the chicken.
