Even More goings on at Casa De Garabaldi

 I being a good Dad woke my kid up and drug him up to Hapeville to the Original Chickfila Dwarf house.  They are closing the location to do a "Scrape and Rebuild"  Basically tearing it totally down and making it 4 times larger.  Well I had called and made reservations and got there and they gave us a menu....I wanted to go there because I used to go there all the time when I was at Ford Motor Company at Atlanta Assembly Plant (AAP), Was one of my good memories.  We gave Truett Cathy our Last Taurus to roll off the assembly lines.

   I got them subsequently signed by the Manager who is a friend of mine, we went through Woodbadge together.    I found out that this was literally "The Last Day".   Dang, I timed it right.

   My Son looked totally excited to be there, he wasn't awake yet.  teenagers unless they get 20 hours of sleep a day, are incapable of functioning properly, LOL.  Truth be told, he goes to school, maintains an A&B average and is a kitchen supervisor at a restaurant that is a subsidiary of Chick-fil-a, and works 40+ hours a week, and is set to graduate high school in less than a month, then he is off to college for a technical degree.  Not bad for an 18 year old.
   Our food, was very good and the grits were the way I like it, thick!  I had to take the waffle home with me, I was too full to eat it.

   I got a pic of him outside the restaurant right before we left, in between the rainstorms blanketing the area.

                                                    We even got a couple of mugs

    I am looking forward to them opening up in December.  According to my friend, the new capacity will be 260 people.  


  1. First Felix Silla and now the Hapeville Dwarf House. When will it end?

  2. I've eaten there several times over the years when I flew in and out of ATL frequently - pick up the rental and head on over. Hope the architecture of the new place has at least some elements of the original.

  3. My first time there was about 1965. I remember when they opened the Chick- Fil-A at Greenbriar Mall. I was working at Thompson-Borland-Lee at the time and enjoyed eating lunch there.
