The seemingly perfunctory name and culinary combination of Maxine’s Chicken and Waffles could throw some potential diners off, as the mixture is not a universally recognised dish. However, Maxine and her team really do serve up chicken and waffles, and much more besides. House favourites are comforting traditional dishes (with the addition of chicken and waffles) all with a similar soul food grounding.
Eating at Papa Roux is a memorable experience. The Cajun-inspired menu is a colourful blackboard of intriguing choices, including po-boys and jambalaya, all served up by the Croux, which is the name given to the house waiting staff. The choice is easy, as the menu is incredibly flexible and allows guests to choose their favourite bread, fillings and additional sides, ranging from crusty bread with fried sausage links and a side of crawfish jambalaya, to a wrap with breaded oysters and breaded pickle chips.
