I think the food was pretty good but a bit pricey for the amount of wings that comes with it. I want to support black business owners but $12 for three pieces of chicken wingettes and a waffle ain?t it. Could at least come with a side something to makeup for the price . Prices could be more reasonable!

This place is tucked away, not visible from Highway 55. I had actually pulled in to try Cook Out, but I saw this place and had to investigate. It's a nice location, shady - lots of trees, many picnic tables. I was the only customer - of course it was 2:30 p.m. on a Saturday - not really prime meal time. It looks like a neat hangout spot - I expect the blue lights outlining the building look cool at dusk and at night. There was music (Uptown Funk) playing on a boombox outside, some basketball hoops set up in the parking lot, and a community bulletin board next to the order window with lots of flyers and cards for local businesses. I'm a relocated Yankee and I wasn't quite ready to try chicken and waffles so I just ordered a plain waffle (start basic). The girl who took my order was wonderful. She was so kind and instantly pegged me as a newbie, taking the time to explain the menu to me. As I said, I went with the most basic waffle. It took a few minutes to prepare my order and I walked around and looked at all the great seating and nice, tucked away vibe of the place. I didn't mind the music but it was on the loud side. I thought it was adorable that they called my order number even though I was the only customer. I brought the waffle home. It's very tender and flavorful - a great Belgian waffle. At some point, I will get brave and try some chicken, too. Check it out if it's not already one of your favorite places.

Big C's waffles are amazing. I love the sweet potato waffle, and the wings. Everything is always fresh and the chicken is crispy.

Don't make the same mistake of ordering the "donut," or plain waffle, as I did. At Big C Waffles, $8 gets you a standard Belgium waffle except it's fried after they pull it off the iron. This particular waffle was excessively greasy and felt heavy. There were trace amounts of powdered sugar on top, but it felt like they cooked the waffle, forgot to fry it, put the sugar on it, then said "whoops" and dunked it in grease. It did come with a side of thin, room-temp syrup that didn't add anything except calories, and it was so watery it might not have even added that. For being so well reviewed, I expected much better.

The food and service are excellent at Big C's. I usually get the wing and waffle combo. The wings are really crispy and the seasoning is just right. My favorite waffles are the sweet potato and Doughnut. Its all so good.

I can't honestly say the food I received was awful. The waffle was entirely to greasy as was the chicken. I've never had waffles quite like it. Tasted like box waffle mix. Had to put half of the waffle in the trash couldn't even taste the flavor because the grease over powered everything. Don't think I'll eat here ever again

I tried out Big C's tonight. My first issue was with the menu. The combos didn't have prices listed and the description was very vague. Me and my girlfriend ordered the 3 piece and waffle combo. For both of us I paid about 24 bucks. We got a waffle and 2 drumettes a 2 flat pieces. Based on the menu description we were expecting 3 actual pieces of chicken what we got was 2 wings. That would be fine if it was explained in the menu but it wasn't.why don't they give more information? My next issue was with the waffles the chicken was great even though there wasn't much of it but the waffle was nothing exciting. I left this experience Feeling kinda screwed. I don't think the meal was bad but between no prices on the menu and calling 2 wings broken up a 3 piece I feel I didn't get what I paid for. Had the description on the menu read 2 wings and a waffle for 12 bucks I would have known what to expect. I likely would have still got it but felt much better about the experience.

The food was very greasy and waffle taste like box mix. It taste like old grease the food was fried in.

Food was delicious and fresh. You get a lot of food for the price and it is worth every penny. I called my order in and it was ready when I picked up. Great customer service and I will return.

Food was great, but the dude that took my card to pay for it copied down the info. I immediately got hit with a fraud alert on my card from a couple Square Inc charges for $400. Do yourself a favor, pay with cash.

Never had chicken and waffles so glad my first time was with them. Amazing waffles and delicious chicken

Sarah Estes

The fried chicken is excellent, well seasoned and crispy. The sweet potato waffle was dense and delicious. I highly recommend the food here if only it wasn't so expensive! $8 for a take out waffle and $2 per chicken tender is a bit steep for me (prices do include taxes). I think I would be back if there was a combo meal with chicken and a flavored waffle for $10.

Really amazing chicken and waffles. I've seen this place hidden back in its corner for years and thought I'd visit eventually, but I finally got around to it and I regret that I hadn't sooner. If you're reading this review, definitely give it a visit.

Michael Karambelas

Amazing waffles and some of the best friend chicken I've ever had. Granny B's juice also amazing. It's on the sweet side (perfect for me), but might not be a good drink option for someone that is not a fan of sweet things.

Derek H.

The KING of Chicken & Waffles! Honestly my mouth is watering just typing this review!! Amazing Amazing Amazing

Keisha Hawkins

The Food is Great and The Owner is very Nice. We Plan to Bring Our Out of Town Family back. Thank you Big C for Your Hospitality.

Kay J.

The waffle is good. The chicken was slightly on the oily side in my opinion. It's also kind of expensive but worth it. I ordered the blueberry waffle and 2 chicken wings I believe and it may have been $11-12. Overall it was good and I'd return.

One of the best places in the triangle to get chicken and waffles. They have a lot of different options for breakfast food like eggs, bacon, turkey bacon etc. The waffles are also have different flavors you can choose from and they are fluffy and delicious. The chicken in also nicely flavored and lightly breaded. I definitely recommend

Hannah Dent

The food here goes beyond comfort food. Great chicken, delicious kool-aid, and the thin mint waffles make me so happy every time I get them. You can't get food like this anywhere else in Durham.

Karina F.

Amazing service! The owner was so sweet ... drove from Jersey for Dreamville Festival and of course had to get my chicken and waffle so not only delicious food.. great hospitality- will recommend 10/10

Shannon Richardson

Awesome food, cooked to order, and great customer service! The flavors are amazing

Lillian Hagmann

Not worth the hype. They use boxed mix and the chicken was pretty meh. Also it took 45 minutes to get our order.


Their chicken wings are the best I've ever had!Literally every time I think about eating fried chicken I only want Big C's.Their Pecan Waffle is so flavorful without being overly sweet.Outside seating so prepare for the weather that day.

Josh Golden

The only place in town you can get legit home made chicken tenders. Excellent seasoning and large portions. A great lunch spot for those of us in RTP.

Crystal Ivey

The chicken is seasoned well and cooked to perfection. The waffles are fluffy and there are plenty of flavors and menu options. The owner is friendly and food is out quick. Oh and the KoolAid!!! ð??? will definitely be back and highly recommend


The food is pretty good ... But Big C should really make sure his workers are doing what they should when he is not there ... Itâ??s sad that some of our people donâ??t take pride of other people businesses that Iâ??m sure they worked hard to start up ... the food would rate higher but the customer service when Big C is not there is not great

Danisha Brown

I'm still full from this a.m those Hot wings & Donut waffles I can't wait till I returnð???ð???

Gloria Sanchez-Lane

Super crispy chicken so delicious, waffles were great too. I highly recommend

Kenneth Williams

THE BEST!! Big C is very personable, and loves his community!! My wife always get the "Uncle Wayne's Chicken" with fries, or his Pecan Waffles. The food is delicious and affordable. DON'T FORGET THE GRANNY B's KOOL-AID TO WASH IT DOWN!!! Bring the family and friends out to sit at the picnic tables and enjoy the good music.

Sandra De Moura

Love love love people are super friendly and the waffles AND chicken are both so flavorful its Amazing!!!!!

Emily Jones

Get the extra serving of chicken with your donut chicken n waffles. You wonâ??t regret it.

Marianne M.

This place is insane. Your other famous and popular chicken and waffle places (cough rhymes with Tames) doesn't hold a light to Big C. The waffles are SO flavorful and surprisingly light. And the chicken is so wonderfully seasoned, my husband and I were so impressed with our order. There is a bit of a wait because food is made to order but WORTH it

Kelsey J.

Sooooo good! I got half blueberry/donut with 2 chicken strips. First time having chicken & waffles was a success!

Yemi K.

I love Big C's! The food here is so incredibly good! A waffle with some chicken will honestly elevate your day to levels you didn't know existed. The food is super fresh and hot when you get it! The chicken is crispy and flavorful. The waffle is my favorite texture: a crunchier exterior but soft and fluffy on the inside. I just got a plain waffle but will definitely be back to try other flavors. They have no indoor seating so it's best to go when the weather is nicer but sitting outside was fantastic for me! This local Durham restaurant is honestly 6/5!!

Jade Phelps

That was the best fried chicken I've had in a while. my mouth was SO HAPPY

Tymika J.

The waffle was delicious but the chicken tasted and looked a little burnt or as if it was cooked in old grease. I will give them another chance but for now they are just ok.

Naomi Alston

I suggested Big C Waffles for my Duke department's staff retreat for something different for lunch. Myself and another co-worker had already experienced the deliciousness of Big C Waffles personally so we highly recommended it to everyone else & it was a HUGE success! If you have yet to

Takes forever if you order at the window, but food is freaking fantastic!
