No, I’m not talking about taking the Midnight Train to Georgia. I’m talking about eating the Midnight Train plate at Gladys Knight’s and Ron Winan’s Chicken & Waffles while in Georgia.
Okay Internetz, I can admit to you, and ONLY you, that I might have been slightly hungover on Sunday morning after the baby shower/house party throw down. We pretty much partied like it was our job. So when we woke the next morning we knew we needed some fantastic hangover food.
And nobody wanted Taco Bell. (well, except for me. Burrito Supreme with extra sour cream, nachos with extra cheese and a ginormous Mountain Dew was my college hangover cure)
We had discussed chicken and waffles the day before at brunch so we decided that was the place to be.
And it was. We got there when it opened at 11:00 and had no problems getting a table. 20 minutes later, people were lined up in the cold waiting for their turn.
When they brought me my platter of goodness, I understood why people were waiting…
Oh. Em. Gee. It was delish. And yes, it was the perfect hangover cure. (Though I wish I had ordered some bacon, too. haha)
The only thing I would have changed was the “fresh buttery taste” spread they served with the waffles. It seriously said 48% vegetable oil; 4% sweet butter cream. Hmmmm. Not sure I’m okay with that. Thankfully the waffle was so damn good it didn’t need butter. Just a touch of syrup and I was good to go.
So if you ever get a chance to go to Chicken & Waffles…I highly recommend it.
And now for your chicken and waffle history lesson:
According to Gladys’ and Ron’s website Chicken and Waffles was born in Harlem, New York in the 1930’s. Wells Supper Club served many celebrities as they hung out in the late night hours. Many of them could not decide if they wanted breakfast or dinner-Wells gave them both!
Now you know…(and knowing is half the battle.)
