Ybor City is bursting with flavor. The latest arrival to Ybor, RyRy’s Chicken and Waffles, in the James Joyce Irish Pub parking lot at 1724 E 8th Avenue, is emblematic of the eclectic vibe in the city. The food truck sets up shop in the parking lot Sunday through Thursday, 4pm-midnight, and Friday through Saturday, 4pm-3am.
What’s on the menu
Customers continue to state that RyRy’s offers some of the best damn fried chicken in the entire state. Their original crispy chicken is a constant favorite. A waffle complements each dish. The food truck also serves up Southern fried chicken and Korean fried chicken — medium spice, with diced green onion and carrots.
The flavored waffles are truly the main event. Flavors include: Nutella, bacon, salted caramel, chocolate, s’mores, peanut buttercup, candied pecans and sweet cream. The decadence doesn’t end there. RyRy’s tops all of their dishes with maple syrups made in house with flavors ranging from blueberry and Sriracha honey, to apple butter and strawberry.
It’s a spot for the whole family
RyRy’s serves something a bit lighter for the kids. The kid’s clucky meal ($5.99) is a crispy chicken tender sandwich with mayo and pickle on a mini bun. They also offer family meal deals, which feed up to 5 people for around $28. The meals include 12 chicken tenders, 4 portions of coleslaw, 4 portions of mashed potato and gravy, and 2 liters of Coke.
Stick around for the tots
The artery avenger tater tots are for those with a ravenous appetite. The dish offers a heaping pile of tater tots with bacon, scallions and melted hot queso.
