Georgians love Waffle House. It’s a no-brainer. We are extremely proud to call this waffle chain a true Georgian staple, especially since the very first one opened in 1955 Avondale Estates, Georgia.
However, beyond grabbing such delicious waffles at the most obvious joint around, there are a ton more spots in Georgia to satisfy your waffle cravings that maybe you wouldn’t have known about. That’s why we’re here…to make your weekend afternoon, and really any morning you’d like, delectably delightful.
