Chick-fil-a is a staple in Atlanta. Most of our friends who leave Atlanta always have to stop by when they come back to visit. We had to stop by the original Chick-fil-a before we left! Truett Cathy opened his first restaurant in 1946 called The Dwarf Grill later renamed to the Dwarf House. This is where he developed the pressure-cooked chicken breast sandwich. Now half of the store is a typical Chick-fil-a with its regular menu, and the other half is a diner with an extended menu.

WHAT WE ORDERED:
- Chick-fil-A sandwich: Jacob liked it better than the typical fast food locations!
- Hot Brown: Bite sized pieces of chicken in a thick cream sauce, topped with melted cheddar cheese, paprika, sliced bacon, and toast. It was very filling. It was good, except I wished the chicken was shredded pieces instead of little cubes.
- Sweet Potato Soufflé
- Peach Fried Pie: Not bad. Not amazing. I had high expectations because it was on this list.
- Sweet Potato Fried Pie: I liked this one better!
