    The signature Chicken and Waffles are available all day, so you don’t have to worry about peeling yourself out of bed by noon just to get some. Read more

    Fantastic if you are in Atlanta's midtown area go get your chicken and waffles on! Best southern cooking I have had in awhile and I live in Dallas!!

    Everything was incredibly inconvenient. No parking, no place to wait to be seated, long wait to be seen, no seating inside. But it was so delicious and worth it. Awesome food, beautiful interior.

    Order: a midnight train (4 jumbo wings x a waffle) + an uptown (1/2 tea x 1/2 lemonade). Local and visitor alike favorite. Chicken and waffles is an Atlanta must have!

    If it's your first visit you need to start with "The Midnight Train." It has the waffles and the chicken. I recommend the fried corn as well, surprisingly delicous for a side dish. Read more

    Soul food from a soul legend? It's a no brainer. The chicken and waffles at Gladys Knight and Ron Winans' Chicken and Waffles make it one of our picks for Favorite Atlanta Meals! Read more

    Try the Midnight Train: 4 jumbo wings, waffle, and a side of Mac & cheese. Although not quite on par with LA's Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles, it's a great original, local option.

    If you visit on a Saturday make sure you arrive early so you don't have to wait for a seat. Free parking isn't that big either so if u get there early ur more likely to get a park--

    Try the sautéed shrimp & grits. Also, stay in top of your place on the list, they will leave you waiting.

    Be prepared to wait a while to get seated, but once you do, you can't go wrong with the midnight train. Big portions.

    Free parking in the back of the restaurant for customers ONLY. Just make 3 rights from peachtree. Also get there early or prepare for a long wait in line outside.

    The jerk chicken was amazing. Service wasn't as pleasing. Never knew what being neglected AND rushed at the same time felt like....until then. Great food though

    Soul food with a twist. The menu features such items as sweet-potato cheesecake, salmon croquettes, and, of course, Gladys' famous chicken and waffles.

    The smothered chicken was good, and if you save room for desert the sweet potato cheesecake is good.

    There's free parking directly behind the restaurant off Courtland Street - park within the red line spaces. Don't pay for the private lots next to the restaurant!

    The food is cool but nowhere near the hype. The chicken and waffles are chicken and waffles (NOT a southern thing). This place is GREAT.....if you didn't grow up with good home cooked Southern food.

    The "Midnight Chain" headliner is an original waffle with four Southern-fried chicken wings, and is named after Knight's 1973 hit song.

    Midnight express is good as usual, smothered chicken was a bit dry, long waiting line as usual, food came out fast. Be careful with parking or you'll get booted like mine. Server Bryan was excellent.

    Great food, go in the middle of the week, because on the weekends, you'll be mad. Uncle Ron's is my favorite.

    Seriously, even if it's not your cup of tea, TRY THE CHICKEN & WAFFLES. They're the signature for a reason.
