    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.

    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

    The fried chicken

  • Ejaazi Z.

    Terrible! I'm only giving 2 stars because of the free parking. I was told that only the chicken & waffles were good. Well, they were not! None of the food had any flavor at all!

    Chicken and waffles! I've never had it as a born New England native but wow. Customize however you please. Super nice and quickly seated our large group no questions asked.

  • Teresa H.

    Was not impressed. The greens were very greasy and there chicken and waffles have nothing on roscoe's. The candied yams were phenomenal

    Teresa Hodges · July 24

    The mac n cheese, the fried chicken, the waffles, the iced tea & lemonade which I had in 1 sitting was great! 😋

    The sampler platter is enough to share and delicious!

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

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

    James Cannida · February 27
  • Apryl R.

    The service was subpar. Food was okay, but not as good as Roscoe's. The Mac and cheese was awesome!

    Parking isn't free. If you don't pay to park it will cost you 75.00 to have boot taken off your car. I saw it happen to two people while we were there.

    I looooove their lemon pepper wings

    Uptown was really good. The midnight train was fast and delicious

    Amanda Cook · December 31, 2014

    Don't even think of standing while in the restaurant or waiting area, there is a police officer to enforce this rule.

    Fried chicken and waffles was great. Check your collard greens before you eat them - mine tasted like warm shoe rubber.

    Austin Anderson · October 29, 2014

    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!

    Danielle · October 21, 2014
  • Jessica R.

    The food is very overrated. The chicken is not seasoned well, overcooked, and resembled pre-battered frozen chicken products

    Jessica Rome · October 19, 2014
  • Jessica R.

    This place is in a very sketchy portion of town. Minimal waiting space inside and a police officer had to chase off the begging homeless people while we waited outside for almost and hour!

    Jessica Rome · October 19, 2014
  • Jonathan O.

    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.

    Yum yum. Have to try the waffles.

    Yum lunch time

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

    Seating at the bar is awkward and busy, don't sit there. Yams are not yams, they're sweet potatoes & not good. Mac-n-cheese & wings are good. Waffles taste like Eggo® Waffles. Definitely NOT Roscoes.

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

    Gareth Jones · August 9, 2014
  • Scott G.

    Waffles = breakfast right! Nope. Doesn't open till 11am

    The kids Waffle Snack is the perfect size for adults who don't have big appetites.

    Best corn muffins ever. Best macaroni and cheese ever. Best yams. And Xavier was such a delightful server!

    Jeslyn Thomas · July 31, 2014
  • Launie B.

    You have to try the "uptown" the "midnight train" and the "sweet potato cheesecake" one of the best southern food

    Launie Bug · July 12, 2014

    Don't pay for parking. Free parking directly behind the restaurant. Just circle around the block and park in the area within the red lines.

    Edmond Wong · June 28, 2014
  • Della B.

    Wow! Fried corn is definitely a must have and the chicken is juicy good! It was worth the trip.

    Excellent food and service

    The SweetTea/Lemonade is DeeLish! It comes in a huge glass, but you can't get refills :-(

    Meals seemed like they came out the microwave!

    Service kind of sucks at the front door.
