Hearty Enough for Dinner

When a place has its own designated waffle menu with 14 options, you know they’re hardcore. Amy Ruth’s of Harlem offers original, no-frills waffles, steps up its game a bit to Chicken & Waffles or Waffles & Chicken Wings, then ups the ante to Waffles with Sausage or Bacon, and finally goes all out with a Waffles and Boneless Rib-Eye Steak combo. The Amy Ruth after whom the restaurant is named was the mother of ten children – seven boys and three girls.  Her grandson is the owner. As a result, Amy Ruth’s titular restaurant is very family friendly, not to mention noise – and mess – tolerant. A great place to go for either lunch or dinner – here, a waffle really can be a full meal and then some.
