Wings & Donuts Where to get them: Max's Wine Dive, 214 Fairview

At the Fairview location of Max's Wine Dive, you can get three of the dive's famous jalapeño-buttermilk-soaked, deep-fried chicken wings served alongside two freshly-fried, maple-syrup soaked donuts. The result is something so sinfully good, you may have to share. Of course, you can also check out the Washington location to get the wings with freshly griddled jalapeño corn cakes and maple syrup. Life is hard, isn't it?

Country Fried Quail & Waffle Where to get it: Punk's Simple Southern Food, 5212 Morningside

Forget chicken, get country-fried quail and waffles at this trendy Southern restaurant and bar. Served with maple syrup, honey butter, and punk's housemade hot sauce, the craggly and crisp bird has incredible crunch on the outside and succulent meat on the inside thanks to a healthy buttermilk dunk and seasoned-flour dredge.

Get your seriously juicy, tender, and crisp buttermilk-fried hunk of chicken smothered in spicy mayo, ancho chile honey, honey mustard, OR buffalo ranch before its stuffed inside one of the bus's huge and buttery, hot-off-the-iron waffles. May we suggest coming with friends so you can try all four?

Chicken & Pecan Waffles Where to get it: Liberty Kitchen, 1050 Studewood

These housemade whole grain waffles are studded with pecans and crisped 'til golden brown before being absolutely smothered in warm maple syrup. Inside sits a beautiful crispy and craggly fried chicken breast, which is juicy and succulent enough on its own but is also topped with an egg cooked-your-way because YES. But that's not all. Bourbon-pickled are just the icing on the waffle cake. Liberty Kitchen, FTW!

Crunchy Chicken & Sin-a-bunn Where to get it: Benjy's on Washington, 5922 Washington

Moist, tender, and seriously crunchy, Benjy's nut-crusted chicken is pretty freaking good when eaten alone by the forkful. But when you go for brunch, you can get it served with thick-cut, smoky bacon, berry jam, and a sinfully sweet and buttery cinnamon bun. Yeah.
