The 5 Best Things to Eat or Drink This Weekend: Chicken & Waffles and Chili in Galveston

Food Truck Friday @ Houston Press Friday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 2603 La Branch

It's that time of week again -- Food Truck Friday! And this time St. John's Fire food truck will be rolling into the parking lot outside the Houston Press office. Come get your spice on with St. John's signature fiery items, such as the fried crawfish mac and cheese balls served with a jalapeño ranch sauce, or the Cajun egg rolls (also featured on Cooking Channel's "EAT St.") with shrimp, crawfish, tasso ham, spinach, the "holy trinity" (onions, bell peppers and celery) and a guava mustard sauce for dipping. Nosh on some hot and spicy seafood grub for lunch. You know you want to.

Funky Brunch @ Funky Chicken Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.-3 p.m. 181 Heights Blvd.

Even though National Pancake Month is February, Funky Chicken has decided to celebrate early with a Funky Brunch this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., Funky Chicken will serve a brunch menu featuring fried chicken and Funky pancakes, aka waffles. The menu includes plain chicken & waffles, mashed potatoes and chicken gravy-topped chicken & waffles, chicken fingers and waffles, a biscuit sandwich with either a combination of chicken sausage, scrambled eggs and cheese, chicken fingers and cheese, or scrambled eggs and cheese. If you're feeling really hungry, order a Funky Brunch Platter complete with scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, a biscuit with gravy, and fries or mashed potatoes (whichever way you prefer your spuds). Each dish will be priced a la carte.
