Winner.
Loved this! The sandwich was delicious and the vanilla pudding was amazing!The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

Last Saturday Dennis and I headed to Santa Clara for the Barcelona v. Manchester United soccer game. We got there earlier to avoid traffic and find something to eat. Two blocks away from the new Levi’s Stadium is a little mini-mart with a few restaurants, including Butter & Zeus. We were really feeling the idea of a waffle sandwich so we decided to check it out. The location is nothing special (fast food vibe), you order at the counter and they bring it to you when ready.

What we ate:

  • Chicken fried waffle ($7.99)
  • Banana pudding waffle ($5.99)

Thoughts?

The fried chicken waffle sandwich was delicious! It is heavy so I definitely recommend sharing it. Having half of this and half of the sweet waffle was perfect! The chicken is very crispy (just the way I like it) and adding the churro waffle (deep fried with cinnamon sugar) gives it that sweetness that really pulled it together. You get a side of cole slaw which is nice, but I which they would give you more. The sandwich can be a bit dry since there is no sauce so the cole slaw is really needed. The fried chicken says it comes with honey (which is why I opted not to ask for the maple syrup – which you can add to any sandwich for $1), but it’s just in the chicken and not an actual sauce. Therefore, I would definitely recommend ordering more cole slaw or asking for syrup. Otherwise, I loved the flavor and the portion of chicken is perfect (I opted for breast versus thigh).

This sweet waffle was delicious! The vanilla pudding was mixed in with chunks of banana and vanilla wafers. It was not too sweet and came with plenty of pudding for both halves.If you’re in the area I would definitely stop by, while they have a ton of flavors I’m glad I chose these two. They were delicious!
