If you haven’t heard of Waffle Chic yet, you are surely missing out! Last fall 2019, Waffle Chic owner (aka Chic in Charge, as she calls herself)- Shamica Evans – won first place in the Extraco Big Ideation Challenge at Start Up Waco. Since then, Shamica, a local Wacoan and mama, has expanded her pop-up chicken and waffles tent to a mobile food truck – most often parked in front of Pinewood Roasters at 2223 Austin Avenue.
Shamica spreads her love for food, family, and mama’s cooking through her small business. Upon arrival to the truck you will find many menu options starting with the basic Classic Chic chicken and waffles. You can also find gluten free chicken and waffles along with savory, sweet, and vegetarian options. Lately my favorite has been the Bacon, Avocado, & Egg waffle. And more recently Waffle Chic released their Peaches & Cream Waffles with a side of Blue Bell vanilla ice cream. And if you’re having a hard time deciding between menu items you can choose a Pick Two split decision waffles.
