Johnny’s World Famous Chicken & Waffles


3725 Main St, College Park
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Open until 11pm (and 1am on Friday and Saturdays), we can lean on Johnny’s in College Park for a good meal and a good time after a late flight when everything else near the airport is closed. With loud hip-hop tunes on the speakers and strong cocktails like their three-rum Brunch Punch, there’s always a group here celebrating something. Just ignore the “Best Mac & Cheese” and “World Famous Chicken” superlatives touted on the menu since the all-day brunch spot doesn’t quite clear that bar. But we acknowledge soul food combos like crispy fried chicken and flavored waffles or seasoned seafood and grits are above average. The barebones diner doesn’t give off celebrity hang, but you’ll probably catch an occasional reality star sighting, and specifically Karlie Redd, who co-owns the spot with Ne-Yo.
