    Whenever I asked anyone where a "must go" place is in Atlanta, I've contantly been told to go to Gladys Knight's, and that they had the best chicken and waffles in town. Seeing how it was one of my last nights in Atlanta, some friends and I decided we had to try this at least once.

    In all honesty, I didn't really see what the hype was all about...chicken tasted like any other chicken I've had, and the waffles weren't anything special either. I could have easily went to KFC and purchased a couple of wings and made some waffles and it would taste exactly the same. Maybe it was the overhyped expectations I had coming in, but either way, nothing special overall.

    It's a pretty decent place to eat, definitely not the best place in Atlanta to get chicken and waffles or soul food.

    Chicken and waffles. Yes they do go together and there is no better place to experience the combination than at Gladys and Ron's (We are talking about Gladys Knight, of course). Order a Midnight Train if you've got an appetite and wash it down with an Uptown. Remember, this is southern soul food, so mac 'n cheese basically counts as a vegetable (and is soo worth it here). You can expect to wait in line outside the building to get in, sometimes for an hour or two, and the later it gets, the better the people-watching. PS. free parking in the back--avoid the $7 lot right next to the builiding.

    I went here for the first time a about a month ago. The environment was nice. The restaurant was set up very nice. However, I have to say, I did not enjoy the menu . It was very simple to me. The prices weren't bad though. Paid about 16$ for a full meal including a drink.

    I try to eat here on every trip to Atlanta. This reasonably priced restaurant gets very crowded, so get there early. You can usually avoid waiting for a table if you arrive between 4 and 5 PM. The chicken and waffle combo (the "midnight train") is excellent and the restaurant's claim to fame. When not in the mood for a waffle, I order a meal of four sides and a la carte wings. I especially like the mac & cheese, collards, fried corn, & Gladys potatoes (which are spicy). The fried wings are out of this world...They are larger than standard chicken wings. The seasoning smells and tastes more like Thanksgiving! Try to save room for sweet potato cheesecake...If necessary, get it to go!

    If you want soulfood, you got it here. I warn you will have to go on a complete fast for a week after you leave here as the food is so fattening and yummy. Think fried chicken on a waffle. Partner that with collard green egg rolls and catfish tenders and you've got a pretty good meal going on! Gladys Knight is behind this restaurnt, giving it legitimate soul roots.

    Probably my favorite place to eat in Atlanta. The best place for southern comfort food. The waffles are the best I've had! The service is fast and friendly. Check this place out if you're in Hotlanta...you might even run into a celebrity here!
