Gladys Knight & Ron Winans’ Chicken and Waffles @ Peachtree Street

6 Nov

Today our plan was to wake up early and grab some chicken and waffles for breakfast.  We talked our two friends into coming with us for this must do experience in Atlanta, or so I have read.  It’s not hard  to talk anyone into eating, it’s the waking up early part that is hard.

When we arrived at Gladys Knight & Ron Winans’ Chicken and Waffles Downtown Atlanta location, we were happy to see that there wasn’t a line when there usually is. Well, there was no line because the time changed and the place does not open until 11:00 a.m.  Darn, I could have slept in.  So, we hopped back into the car and drove to two more breakfast places.  The first one, West Egg had an hour wait.  That’s a negative.  Second one, Thumbs Up Diner had a 45 min wait. No and no.  Thankfully by that time, the doors would be opening soon for chicken and waffles. Oh yes, we headed back.  When we arrived, a small line had formed.  No worries, we didn’t wait long.

For our opening act, we had fried green tomatoes and jerk chicken egg rolls.

I had an Uptown drink, the house blend of lemonade and sweetened tea with the Midnight Train, one original waffle with four jumbo chicken wings.

I guess we liked it since all that was left were the bones.  I couldn’t finish all of my chicken.  The wings were huge!

This place was great!  Not your usual breakfast dish, but it hit the spot.  Oh! Happy Sunday!
