Gladys Knight Chicken & Waffle
The concept of Chicken and Waffles was born in Harlem, New York in the 1930's. Wells served many celebrities as they hung out in the late night hours. Many of them could not decide if they wanted breakfast or dinner-Wells gave them both! Gladys Knight continues the Chicken and Waffles tradition. Gladys Knight and Ron Winans, together with Shanga Hankerson, developed: Gladys Knight and Ron Winans' Chicken & Waffles. Her son, Shanga, continues the tradition. Shanga's additional connection to the restaurant industry started very early when his father introduced him to working in a butcher shop in Detroit, Michigan. The family also had a restaurant for a period of time and learned the pitfalls of owning a restaurant. The hard work in the butcher shop and the first experience of owning a restaurant did not deter Shanga. He continued to display a strong desire and passion to stay connected with restaurants. Shanga had a dream of starting his own restaurant some day -A restaurant that would serve the food that he had grown up with, while also adding to the legacy of his mother.

I went to eat at this resturant August 21, 2011. It was great. I've never eaten chicken that I didn't need ketcup or ranch with untill I ate here! I loved the chicken and the waffle. I had the midnight train and a side order of fried green tomato's... ummm ummm good! I could wat there every day, wish we had one back home in Little Rock.
I went there this Sat 04/02/2011 with my daughter and I loved it!! I had the Midnight Train which is 3 fried wings and 1 waffle, and my daughter had the smother chicken beast w/ collard greens and corn. We then had the peach cobbler to share. The only negative is the wait time. We went aroung 3 or 3:30 and were not seated until after 5. But as soon as we placed our order the food arrived very quickly and our waitress was very nice/ I will definately go back soon. Maybe on a week night to avoid the crowd!
The food at this restaurant was very bland and under seasoned to be consided a soulfood spot. A seven dollar appetizer consist of four shrimp 1.50 for a drink refill the list goes on. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE!! Whatever reputation they once had has truly been lost.
All I can say is We will never go back, too expensive for nothing, publix
fried chicken is much better, tea was bad, its way over rated, much better resturants out there two pieces of fried chicken and two sides for 14.00 is a bit much, greens were old small portions, some strange characters in there also.
What can I say about my experience. I was meeting my old classmates from Cali for brunch, people whom I haven't seen in about 30yrs. Of course we had to wait for about 40min on a Sunday (np). The problem came when our name was called and we had one guest who hadn't shown up and we conveyed this to the host. She told us that we could either be seated now and our guest could show up late and not be able to...ORDER HER MEAL... or we could wait until our guest showed and take the chance on waiting another 40min. I couldn't understand why our guest showing up late would pose a problem for them. We were seated at a booth which held 4 people and it was 3 of us so far. When our last guest finally arrived she was told by the host that she couldn't order due to her late arrival. Now she could order to go but could not eat at the table..hummm I was warned by my daughter that the Lithonia location had rude, hosts and servers. The service was so bad that they gave my daughter vouchers for free meals. I read reviews about the refills, yep it's true it will cost you $1.50 for a refill but the glasses are pretty tall.
We had a nice server Iris who allowed our guest to order and eat at the table. lol The food was good but was it worth me dealing with this type of customer service, nope. The decor was nothing special, my seat had a rip in it and other than the pictures of celebs on the wall there was nothing special about the place. Oh by the way no substitutions...lol you can add to your meal but not substitute this is not Burger King....
We had an exceptional lunch of fried chicken and different sides at Knight & Winan's Peachtree location in Atlanta today. Food was outstanding, the sides very tasty, and loved the lemonade/sweet tea drink (but $1.50 for one refill does seem a bit high) Waitress was very friendly, some of the waiters weren't that smiley - but with food that good, I'll smile to myself! Would definitely eat there again, and would recommend it to others looking for delicous fried chicken. In NO WAY is it plain, bland, or less good than other chicken we have eaten. Can't WAIT to dig into my leftovers!
The food was delicious. Everything taste well seasoned and nice portions. Customer service was nonexsistant. My boyfriend and I stood at the front desk (we were the only ones up there) and NO one even acknowledged us until it was time to be seated. No hello welcome to chicken and waffles, or how are you...NOTHING. They looked at us and said nothing. Our waitress didn't pay us any attention, never filled our drinks til the end when we asked for it. I'm use to waitresses taking notice to small details like that and giving great customer service.
Great food, bad customer service!
the chicken was good and the waffle too, the service was alright but the collard greens were $3.50 for a little side dish, way too expensive if you ask me.
unless you park in the back or alley or whatever it is you, I dont know, some homeless guy wanted to show me but I didnt follow him, anyways you will have to pay $6 bucks to park there. Cool atmosphere though and close to many things in downtown.
