Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles

Many consider Lolo’s Chicken and Waffles the best soul food restaurant in the Valley. The chicken and waffle plates brings curious visitors from all parts of the Phoenix metropolitan area to try the combination.

With Southern fried chicken and golden brown waffles Lolo’s satisfies that curiousity.

But chicken and waffles aren’t the only dishes at Lolo’s. They also serve catfish, chicken gizzards, grits and more Southern soul favorites.

The amiable family restaurant has been celebrated in publications from the Arizona Republic to the Food & Life dining guide.

Lolo’s is locatiod at 10 West Yuma Street – two blocks south of the intersection of Buckeye and Central.
Even more interesing though, is the approval of famous guests from Phoenix and beyond. The walls are covered with a diverse array of autographs from local basketball favorites Amare Stoudamire and Charles Barkely to an American hero Tuskegee airman.

Some Notorious Phoenicians – Good and Bad

A haphazard list of notable Phoenicians for your Tuesday – in no particular order. I’ll flesh this list out in the near future.

Part 1:

1) Frank Lloyd Wright spent his winters in Scottsdale from 1937 until his death in 1959. His winter home, Taliesin West, is located near the northeast corner of Scottsdale. Wright was also commissioned to help with the planning and construction of the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa. The building’s designers balked at Wright’s unusual design but a compromise was reached. Today the Biltmore boasts that it is a Frank Lloyd Wright-influenced design.

2) Alice Cooper became famous for his stage persona and heavy metal music in the late 60’s. Alice Cooper, or Vincent Furnier, attended Cortez High School in Phoenix before beginning his music career. In 1974 he changed his name to Alice Cooper and became an international superstar. In the late 90’s Cooper opened Alice Cooper’stown near Bank One Ballpark and America West Arena in downtown Phoenix. The bar and restaurant are where Jock meets Rock.

3) Gary Condit was a United States Congressman from 1989 to 2003. Condit received national attention when the body of his intern, Chandra Levy, was found in a Washington D.C. park approximately one year after she had disappeared. At first Condit, also known for his honest-looking grin, lied about his relationship with Levy. He later admitted to a romantic relationship with the intern. The case remains unsolved. Condit is no longer a suspect.

4)Jenna Jameson is one of the best-recognized female adult movie stars working today. She lives in Scottsdale.

Coming soon: Don Bolles, Robert William Fisher, and Wonder Woman.
