Waffle House Museum
Located on the site where Joe Rogers, Sr. and Tom Forkner opened the first Waffle House restaurant in Avondale Estates, Ga., the Waffle House Museum captures the spirit and history of the 24-hour chain. The museum includes a re-creation of that first restaurant Joe and Tom opened on Labor Day, 1955, and is filled with more than 60 years of Waffle House memorabilia.
The museum has been featured in SOUTHERN LIVING magazine, in the AMC show HALT AND CATCH FIRE and is on the Georgia Historical Society list of historic sites.
Due to the on-going COVID pandemic, we are currently not conducting any tours or open houses at the Waffle House Museum.
