The Dwarf House (The Original Chick-fil-A), Hapeville , Ga.

The Dwarf House started in 1946 in Hapeville when "a young man named Truett Cathy and his brother Ben pooled their savings, sold their car, and took out a loan to come up with $10,000 to open the Dwarf Grill." It had 10 counter stools and four tables. They pulled in $58.20 the first day and have been open 24 hours a day ever  since (except Sundays — "of course," the menu notes).

There are 11 Dwarf House locations in the Atlanta-metropolitan area.  At the original, there is a small door in the front and a strange motorized Snow White-esque dwarf display in back. The main difference between The Dwarf House and other Chick-fil-A locations is it's a full-service restaurant in addition to the fast-food. You can find chicken pot pie, fried okra, rib-eye steak, and the hot brown platter (chicken in a thick cream sauce topped with Cheddar, paprika, bacon, and toast), and other items you won't find in your average Chick-fil-A.
