Amazing, everything on the menu is a winner! Best fried chicken I've ever had. Dub is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.
- Brian E., Yelp
Nestled in the Ranger Tavern, Dub’s is known for going above and beyond. Specializing in delivery, catering and supporting schools and charities in need, this black-owned neighborhood restaurant has a bit of a dive-bar vibe that locals love. Dub’s tends to get crowded on weekends, but nevertheless welcomes families until 8 p.m., and even has a popular kids’ menu offering smaller portions of their chicken and waffles, fish and fries, and the like. Don’t miss out on Dub’s rib dinners with your choice of yummy sides like bow ties and cheese and garlic mashed potatoes.

News and Reviews for Dub's St. Johns
The chicken was perfectly seasoned, crispy and juicy on the inside. I burned my mouth eating the drumstick, but the waffle was actually my favorite part. It was soft and chewy and slathered in butter. I’ve never had a waffle like it before but I loved it. Very different from the crispy and airy ones I make at home.

The fried chicken and waffles ($12) are still excellent: the fried chicken browned, salted and spiced—with a juicy interior that's a perfect ground for the Frank's Red Hot in the squirt bottles—while the sweet-battered Belgian squares have pretty much the same texture as the pats of butter served on top of them. Which is a very good thing, an unexpected kind of comfort.

Plump, juicy hunks of chicken are the golden standard by which most soul-based chicken should be judged. Oh, and the waffles are some of the best in the city, too.
