Below could arguably be the most famous piece of real estate in the Atlanta metropolitan area.  That is, the site of the very first Waffle House. The site of the first Waffle House ever opened was at 2719 East College Avenue in Decatur, Georgia   Despite the fact that most people consider this stretch of road to be in Avondale Estates, it is just a little bit west of Avondale Estates’ city limits and about a block or so east of Decatur’s city limits.  The property actually has a Decatur mailing address.

The picture below is the first Waffle House:

Currently, a Chinese restaurant sites at the site:

Has anyone been to this historical when it was a Waffle House?

  1. I am intrigued by the Chick Fil A sign below the Waffle House sign. Do you know anything about that – was there a Chick Fil A next door or something?

  2. That is a good question. Before Chik-Fil-A grew into a large restaurant chain, they sold frozen chicken patties to restaurants. They do not do that anymore. A while back, a national news agency did a story about how bad stadium food was and named the Chik-Fil-A products as being really bad. Chik-Fil-A stopped the distribution since it had no control over how the product was cooked at the venue site. They only sell their product in their restaurants. Thanks for the comment!
