Mansfield Restaurant to Bring Handmade Chicken and Waffles to the FW Zone

A new restaurant concept arrives in Fort Worth, tailor-made for those on the go. Called Chick’nCone, it does something you never thought you wanted: it lets you eat chicken and waffles in an easy and convenient movable treat cone.

It’s a Pennsylvania-based chain and they are opening their first location in Tarrant County at 2751 E. Broad St. # 113, in Mansfield.

Their signature dish is a homemade waffle cone, filled with boneless fried chicken fillets, drizzled with the sauce of your choice, be it the Cinna-Maple signature, to come close to the full chicken and waffle experience, or the spicy Buffalo Blue.

And then let’s go, to savor your chicken & waffle experience without a fork, freed from the constraints of a table or a dining room.

Based in Lehigh Valley, Pa., Chick’nCone – and yes, that’s how it’s typed, with an apostrophe, a lowercase “n” and no space between the “n” and the Cone, which is for the less vexing – was founded in 2016 by Jonathan Almanzar and Josh Lanier, first as a food truck before becoming a quick and relaxed concept that can be franchised.

He made his Texas debut in Houston, then Austin, and now there are locations in Florida, California, Ohio, Kentucky, Colorado, as well as Toronto and Dubai.

The first Dallas-Fort Worth site open at Deep Ellum in mid-October.

Husband and wife Ontario and Cassandra Rowe bring it to Tarrant County. They have just started construction and hope to open by the end of the year.

“We loved the concept and wanted to bring it to Mansfield,” said Cassandra. “We live here, our kids went to Mansfield schools and we wanted to do something for our community.”

In addition to the chicken in the cone, the menu includes two other “chick’n” items: Chick’nTenders and a Chick’nSandwich.

Accompaniments include Cajun fries (Caj’nFries spelled), spicy Cajun corn (aka Caj’nCorn), and mac and cheese (Mac’nCheese, of course). There are also Waffle Crunch milkshakes, topped with a crispy candied waffle crust.

Having your chicken in a portable version is fast becoming a trend:

  • In February, a concept called Buttercup Chicken Tenders has opened at Legacy Hall, Plano’s dining room, with fillets that can be served in a cup or cone.
  • In mid-October, Surfin ‘Chicken, a new chain from Croatia known for serving chicken and chips in unique portable packaging, has opened its first U.S. location in the Dallas area at a Mesquite Walmart.

The message is clear: people don’t just want their chicken fillets, they want them on the mobile.
