D Bar's d-licious version of chicken and waffles.

Which came first, the chicken or the waffle? Yesterday, Cafe Society served up our list of Denver's ten best plates of chicken and waffles, a dish that's surprisingly delicious when coming out of the correct kitchen. And Denver has many worthwhile variations, from the traditional to the "southernfried Belgian" at D Bar.

Our advice: Don't knock it 'til you've tried it (or all ten), no matter how much you might doubt the basic combo.

It doesn't sound disgusting, but the combo dish has also never appealed to me.

If you don't like chicken or waffles, chicken and waffles would be a really bad meal choice. Otherwise, what's not to like? 

You can always keep the chicken away from the syrup if that doesn't appeal to you, although maple syrup is a general life enhancer. Keep in mind that even McDonald's offers honey as a dipping sauce for chicken nuggets, so the sweet-savory combo with chicken is about as mainstream as it gets.
