On Saturday 02/07/2009, My 2 daughers, myself and granddaughter (1 year) took a trip to Atlanta for the first time. We ALL had to try Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles. WHAT A MISTAKE. It was by far, the WORST part of the trip. I was so so so disappointed. THIS IS NOT SOUL FOOD. We waited an hour before asking if our name was coming up, to find out we had been CROSSED OFF the wait list. We were then seated. It was a rather SPECIAL experience, i.e., some of the wait staff were very very special (YELLOW BUS SPECIAL). We were excited about the experience, wanted to get a feel for everything on the menu. BIG MISTAKE. The MIDNIGHT TRAIN had missed a couple of stops (and was the only item on the menu that came with a waffle, no seasoning on the chicken, and my son who does not know how to cook could have made a better waffle. The other review was so correct, DRIED OUT AND BURNT MACARONI & CHEESE, The GREENS were not thoroughly cooked, and tasted like leaves (no flavor), the YAMS were also TASTELESS, NOT SWEET, NOT THOROUGHLY COOKED -- Gerber baby food tastes better. I thought I was ordering mashed potatoes and gravy (I know that's what I said), but I got this potatoe casserole that was just NASTY -- and too hot (spicey). I ordered CHILDS CHICKEN BASKET W FRIES for the baby. The fries were so HOT w PEPPER the baby started choking, and so did I. SWEET POTATOE CHEESE CAKE was just NASTY, not sweet, bland -- looked pretty though. BOTTOM LINE: The price was too high, the portions were too small. This is just a gimmick. I can't tell you not to go, because it is a "tourist" attraction, but apparently "Gladys-N-dem don't expect return business." This is a ONE-SHOT-WONDER. I been and I will not be back again......
Pros: JUST SAY NO
Cons: PARKING says $3, but charged $10 at night, BAD FOOD, HIGH PRICES
