    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

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

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
