There’s nothing like a heaping plate of breakfast food, and you can eat it at any time of the day. Whether you’re out at brunch or just feel like ordering a plate of waffles in the middle of the afternoon, there’s likely a restaurant nearby to serve you.
Love Food, the publisher that dubs itself “the tastiest guide on the web,” is spotlighting the best waffles in every state, so foodies can get their breakfast food fixes at the best place. “There’s much debate about how waffles came to America, but what can’t be denied is the food’s popularity since 1869, when the first waffle iron was patented,” Love Food notes of the longtime breakfast staple. “Whether you want them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert, here’s where to get the best in your state.”
So, which restaurant stands out the most in Illinois? Love Food recommends The Churro Waffle, located in Chicago. Here’s why it’s the best:
“This joint's signature Churro Waffle, drizzled in caramel sauce, topped with sea salt caramel ice cream and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, sounds pretty good. But we bet you won't find a better Chorizo Waffle (with chorizo, onion, coriander, jalapeños, eggs any style and tomatillo sauce) or Oreo Waffle (with Oreo crumbles, caramel sauce and cookies ‘n’ cream ice cream) anywhere else either.”
