4) Lola, 1575 Boulder Street
The weekend brunch menu at Lola features a popular variation on chicken and waffles. This dish pairs a buttermilk-brined fried chicken breast and waffles with chorizo gravy and a sweet cherry syrup.

3) Euclid Hall, 1317 14th Street
Euclid Hall has built its reputation on high-quality pub food, including an innovative chicken and waffles dish. Euclid's version includes crispy chicken and confit nuggets, a sourdough waffle, and black pepper béchamel served with maple gastrique. The presentation is beautiful, the taste just as amazing.

2) Sloan's Bar & Grill, 5850 West 25th Avenue.
For a friendly, neighborhood bar scene, check out Sloan's Bar & Grill -- particularly during brunch on the weekends. Along with breakfast burritos and cinnamon roll waffles, Sloan's also offers a very hardy, traditional take on chicken and waffles.

I had some tasty Chicken and Waffles at Viewhouse the other night, the Whisky Syrup tops it off fantastically!

I dug up this article because I had to point out that The Pink Tank does indeed have the most righteous chicken and waffles.  I see other people (including the tankminders themselves) have already beat me to it.  I've tracked the truck down twice this month just to get my hands on them.  

The waffle is impossibly crunchy and pairs perfectly with the three chicken legs that are dredged in hot sauce.  That hot sauce, along with some just-melting hot sauce ice cream, a maple-caramel sauce, a crispy crumbled bacon all combine in the bottom of the cardboard basket to create a wonderfully unholy salty-sweet-spicy condiment that you'll being sopping up every last bit of.  It's one of my favorite dishes in town, period.

1) If Tom's Home cooking toasted an ego waffle and served it along with their Fried Chicken it would instantly be the best Fried Chicken and Waffles in Denver because Tom's Fried chicken is so impossibly good.

2) If you get the Chicken and Waffles from Euclid Hall add Foie Gras. You're welcome.

I'm not a big fan of chicken & waffles combo, but Pink Tank does indeed deserve recognition for its deliciousness.

Huge miss not including the magnum opus of chicken and waffles found at Devil's Food.

The chicken & waffles at Lola are amazing.  I get them every time I go there for brunch.  You also have to get the lobster deviled eggs.

PinkTank food truck needs to not only be on this list but they need to be in the #1 spot. Go see for yourself.

If you have never had the Finger Lickin' Waffles and chicken from the PinkTank food truck then you have not yet had the best. Come see for yourself why I say this.

Devil's Food serves a mean one. Chef Brian Crow brought it with him from Asheville, NC.

Not sure if Boulder counts, but Q's at the Hotel Boulderado should definitely get a mention.
