L.A. has Roscoe’s — Atlanta has Gladys Knight’s & Ron’s — now Columbia has Kiki’s!
Kiki’s Chicken and Waffles in Columbia, SC is the first restaurant in the Midlands dedicated to serving the famed chicken and waffles dish.
Owned by Kitwanda “Kiki” and Tyrone Cyrus, Kiki’s opened its doors in 2012 and has been serving delicious, homemade soul food dishes to raving customers ever since. Best known for our signature dish — four crispy fried chicken wings seasoned to perfection on top of a warm, Belgian waffle — we also serve a variety of home-cooked meals, from fried green beans and sweet cream corn nuggets to smothered pork chops and salmon patties. And don’t forget dessert! Our famous red velvet waffle with cream cheese frosting is unmatched.
Customers from all over Columbia and surrounding cities return — not just for the food but for the atmosphere. We pride ourselves on prompt service, friendly staff, and a family-friendly atmosphere. With events like open mic’ night and live jazz, Kiki’s is more than just a place to dine; it's a place to entertain, where everyone is family.
