What's better than fried chicken and waffles? Chicken and waffles on-the-go. 

That's what Chick'nCone is serving up for the last seven years, and it has turned it into a social media sensation and developed into a franchise. According to Chick'nCone's website, Tampa will be getting a location soon. 

Photos of have been popping up from the fast-casual restaurant all over Instagram of fried nuggets of chicken tossed in sauce. Each Chick'nCone establishment is fork free. So dig in like it's a scoop of ice cream on a hot day.  

Franchises have been spreading from the original brick-and-mortar location in Manhattan. The operators of the soon-to-be Tampa location will be Jennifer Hall and Kyle Blanchard.  

Although a date has not been released for the fried chicken joint, we'll be hot on the trail for updates. More to come as details are released. Until then, we'll be patiently waiting for our taste of southern comfort food in a cone.
