“Chicken for the strength, waffles for the speed” (Lucky J’s chicken & waffles)

Lucky J’s “chicken and waffles”  trailer opened in Austin, Texas, in the spring of 2009. The slogan: “Chicken for the Strength…Waffles for the Speed.” Lucky J’s slogan is often shortened to: “Chicken for strength, waffles for speed.”

Then we met up with the Nesbitts again for Lucky J’s Chicken and Waffles. Their tagline is “Chicken for Strength. Waffles for Speed.” I have no idea what that means and can’t say that I feel stronger post-chicken and can attest to feeling the opposite of speedy, but, it was delicious nonetheless.

The newly opened trailer’s slogan, “Chicken for strength, waffles for speed,” hardly seems fitting when you realize that after you eat a large, syrupy portion of chicken and waffles, the only thing you’ll want to do is take a nap. And then eat some more. Go with a friend and try “The Deal,” which includes two waffles with butter and syrup and half of a fried chicken, all for under $8.

“Chicken for the strength, waffles for the speed,” reads the front of Lucky J’s hidden north Austin trailer. Actually, I felt like a slothful, faded lump of blubber after shoving some ripped fried chicken breast with a little hot sauce, all taco-wrapped into a syrup-and-butter-drenched waffle, into my face. It stuck all over my cheeks and fingers and I had to ask the owner, Jason, for an extra big wad of napkins. It was pretty sweet.
