It's becoming a trend to see out-of-state restaurants opening their first in-state location in Tucson. I mean, our local culinary scene is one of the best so do you blame them?
The Kansas City, Missouri-based restaurant chain Chick-in Waffle has flown the coop and landed near the corner of Grant and Craycroft Road. It's located inside the former Burger King at 5524 E. Grant Rd., sharing a nearby lot with Frida's Cafe and across the street from Amelia's Mexican Kitchen and The Quesadillas.
The restaurant known for its signature bubble waffles loaded with chicken is hosting its Grand Opening beginning at noon on Friday, May 19. They'll have a live DJ, giveaways, a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and plenty of chicken. Also, there's a soft opening happening from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17 - Thursday, May 18.
"We are thrilled to bring Chick-In Waffle to Arizona," said Dennis Alazzeh, founder and CEO of Chick-In Waffle. "We've always had a goal of spreading waffly good chicken across the country, and this is a great opportunity to do just that."
The Tucson location will offer the same menu as the original locations in Kansas City, featuring a variety of dishes that are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The menu includes chicken and waffles, wings, loaded fries, hot chicken sandwiches, and a huge ice cream dessert menu, including the Churro Ice Cream & Waffle.
They have the full menu available online.
Chick-in Waffle is located at 5524 E. Grant Rd. For more information, visit chick-in-waffle.com and follow Chick-in Waffle on Instagram.
