Your taste buds aren't ready.

You can now satisfy your hankerin' for chicken and waffles at Ceci’s Chicken and Waffles without leaving the city. Owner Ciceley McDowell has officially opened a new brick-and-mortar location in Little Rock in the former Shark's Fish and Chicken at 6606 Colonel Glenn Road. 

After almost two years of business in Conway and a cult following, McDowell is bringing her take on Grandma's favorites back to her hometown. Ceci's is known for its namesake take on savory and sweet concoctions — think strawberry shortcake and red velvet Oreo as well as a laundry list of well-loved soul food items and Southern staples like pork chops and chicken gizzards.

Along with the regular menu mainstays, the new location will also offer to-go options for busy and hungry folks of Little Rock.

Ceci’s will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more details, visit the restaurant's website and follow along on Facebook
