When Gladys Knight sang about that “Midnight Train to Georgia,” who knew she would set up shop in the state of a restaurant. The legendary songstress, alongside the late Gospel singer Ron Winans, founded Gladys Knight and Ron Winans’ Chicken & Waffles in 1997. Now a chain, the restaurant has locations throughout Georgia (Atlanta, Lithonia, and John’s Creek) and one location in Landover, Maryland. The family friendly establishment offers an extensive menu of soul food that will have you singing a tune. Our menu recommendation: The Midnight Train (four jumbo chicken wings and a waffle).
