Big C Waffles is the bomb. I've known Carl since before he opened the restaurant and I knew those waffles were great, which they are. What I had not tried were his chicken wings, which are phenomenal. The food is fantastic! Carl is the man.

I was a little underwhelmed with this place. I got the cinnamon pecan waffle and was very disappointed with the lack of flavor. It tasted like a regular waffle with a hint of cinnamon and absolutely no pecans. I do intend to try another flavor though. There was a line to order and that many people can't be wrong about a restaurant. The chicken, however, was excellent and so was the kool-aid.

Food was great but $12 dollars for a waffle and 4 Flat wing sections. Not worth it to me. I thought it at least would have been 4 whole wings.

I got to experience Big C Waffles through Offline Durham and I am so glad that I was able to experience this! I don't eat gluten very often but this was worth eating gluten! The customer service was so great and the food was pretty darn delicious!

This was a pretty great little local spot. The staff was super friendly and the food was great! We got two orders of the Full Waffle and 4 Piece Chicken for $12 each. One waffle was Egg Bacon & Cheese the other waffle was Blueberry. Both were great! I was hoping that the 4 Piece Chicken was going to be drums sticks or something along those lines but the wings were perfectly cooked and delicious! I look forward to going back!

Big C is the real deal! Maybe the realest dude you’ll ever meet. He loves changing the world one waffle at time. Great food and even better people! Prepare to have your life changed!

Great food! Chicken was juicy and full with flavor. Blueberry Vegan waffle was good and light. Koolaid was just right. They may have some competition with Dame’s. Both black owned spots are great! Would definitely be back. They also cater.

I often get into heated arguments with my friends about this place. I say it's the best chicken I've ever had, and I've never lost an argument after taking them there. Also get the red velvet waffle, it's insane. You'll thank me later.

Traditional chicken and waffles with a country flare! Waffles are melt in your mouth wonderful and the chicken, well you might as well grab some extra wings to-go!! Friendly, customer oriented(I like my chicken cooked crispy), and clean! Must Try It!

I had the pleasure of tasting all of this deliciousness. I had a sweet potatoe waffle and I don't know who uncle Wayne is but the way his chicken taste I feel like we were best friends in a past life okay!!!!

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.You choose the waffle flavor (I chose pecan) and if you want chicken included (of course I added chicken) and in a couple of minutes you get your meal. The chicken was very well seasoned, the waffle was perfect, honestly in my opinion this place competes with some of the pricier sit down chicken and waffle places in the area.

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.

Unfortunately, felt like they waffle was well overpriced. And it's not like they have a whole lot of overhead. It's a former hot dog stand right off 55. I was a little bit underwhelmed. And the red velvet didn't taste very velvety...

Don't sleep on this spot! The chicken was delish! Outdoor appearance isn't up to par but the food is excellent and was served hot and quickly! I'll definitely come back when in Raleigh, NC!

Ordered for take out a few months ago and found the person that took our order to be impatient and rude. No biggie though, I was in it for the chicken and waffles, not the service. So, how was the food?? In short, it's no Dame's. The waffles were floppy (almost soggy) and not really noteworthy. The chicken was definitely tasty -- well-cooked and seasoned and the saving grace from this review landing closer to 1 or 2 stars. I will make a point of trying this place again when I can eat the meal in-person, right away. But, I've ordered chicken and waffles from Dame's for takeout (for comparison) and had a much better experience in terms of taste.

I was in love after the first bite! Delicious waffle with wings. Been meaning to come here for months especially after learning about the cool back story of how the business was started and in honor of the owner's father.

I’ve been waiting to get a chance to come here since moving and it was worth it. Their vegan waffle is the best! You get a very big waffle with toppings for $9 and it’s flavorful and filling. Service was quick and staff was kind. Will be returning and I highly recommend.

The waffles are mouth watering and the chicken is perfectly seasoned. They also have tenders,fries,eggs and more versatile with the menu that can be served for breakfast,lunch, or dinner.Best waffles ever never frozen and made to order with fresh ingredients.😍😍😍😍

The absolute BEST Chicken & Waffle Combo you’re gonna find in N.C! I had the half donut half Bacon Egg & Cheese Waffle(yes it’s inside of the Waffle) Uncle Wayne’s Chicken which is seasoned to perfection, and I topped it off with Granny B Kool-Aid. I’ll highly recommend BIG C’s to anyone, you won’t be disappointed!

I ordered the blueberry waffle (got mine crispy) with wings. The wings were well seasoned and the waffle was delectable. If they keep this up, I will definitely be a repeat customer. * I would have added a photo but once I took the first bite I couldn't stop myself and pick up the phone.

I can’t believe I have been missing out on this place! No intentions to stop here today but my fiancé said I should try it as we were driving by. Glad I did the food was amazing! I got the chicken and waffles and it was perfect. Chicken seasoned all the way through and the waffle was fluffy and just how I like it. My new favorite spot for chicken and waffles!!! 😋

Superb food, and they even have fried oreos. I think the chicken wings are better than the tenders, but that's a personal opinion. The waffles are always outstanding, and I don't even like waffles that much. It would be great if the carry out containers had some tiny holes, or something similar, to prevent the fried chicken crust from going soft because of the steam.

Amazing! I'd recommend it to anyone nearby to try them as they have the best waffles I've ever had and great. It's so light and fluffy and the donut waffle melts in your mouth. Simply amazing and I'll certainly recommend this to my coworkers when the office opens again

I haven't found a better waffle than the waffles from Big Cs. The uncle Wayne's chicken is also always fried to perfection. Definitely would recommend everyone to stop by and pick up a chicken/waffle combo plate.

This place is a must try, seriously. I’ve never had chicken and waffles like this before. I STRONGLY suggest eating it in your car or a table outside. Don’t wait to take it home. Waffles always get mushy during transportation, eat it ON THE SPOT and get ready to have your mind blown. Also make sure to live a little, if the flavor sounds a little weird, like red velvet, TRY IT. You won’t regret it.

Decent. The waffles were excellent, but the chicken smelled much better than it tasted. Wings were well overcooked. But the waffles, again, were outstanding! I'm sure the chicken is usually much better, we just got a bad batch.

The food was great and delicious. No complaints; however, I got sick the next day (started that night). My other two coworkers didn’t get sick though. I did have a different waffle from them so maybe that’s why. When I arrived I waited a while before someone took my order and they weren’t rude, but could work on customer service. With those two being said I give three stars. I do plan on going back in months to come to hopefully update my review.

Been going here regularly since moving down the road. Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu, but their wings are UNREAL. Best wings I’ve ever had, and they’re consistently just as good and fresh as the last time. Big C has it going on!!

Big C. Waffles have great Blue Berry Waffles. The last time I visited Durham, I saw that Big C Waffles was closed for business. When will you be open again? I am starting to have Blue Berry withdrawal :)
