How Y'All Doin'

Waffle House has now opened their own museum. It is a must see tourist site in metro Atlanta.

A ribbon cutting for the new museum was held at the site of the original Waffle House which opened on East College Avenue in Avondale Estates some 53 years ago.

On hand were the two founders, Joe Rogers Sr. and Tom Forkner, both neighbors in Avondale who decided to go into business together.

The original restaurant closed in 1973 and became home to various other restaurants, even a tire store. Waffle House purchased the property again to turn it into a museum that includes original menus, uniforms, and other memorabilia. It also includes a replica of the original counter, stools, and kitchen.

The museum will only be open on special occasions and for corporate events.
