The hugely popular Kiki’s Chicken and Waffles, currently located at 7001 Parklane Rd, will open a second location in the Harbison area! Kiki’s will be located in the old HuHot location in Columbiana Station on Bower Parkway, next to the movie theater. Kiki’s, “the first restaurant in the Midlands dedicated to serving the famed chicken and waffles dish”, has become well known for its take on the pairing, offering fried wings or boneless chicken breasts on a Belgian waffle, with waffle choices that include original, wheat, walnut, blueberry, chocolate chip, pecan, or sweet potato. Kiki’s even has a Fish and Waffle meal! The restaurant also serves up great breakfasts, soul food, southern favorites and desserts. Stay tuned for opening day information. More here.
