Top 5 Macon Waffle Houses



As New Year’s Eve turns into New Year’s Day, your dining options become fewer.  Picture this, you have finished celebrating and look at your watch to see that it’s 2am.   Then someone says the magic phrase “Let’s go to Waffle House!”  Our gatekeepers will steer you in the right direction, even if it’s a chain.  Check out our Top 5 Macon Waffle House locations, and have a Happy New Year!

1.  Waffle House
Hartley Bridge

4320 Hartley Bridge Road
Macon, GA 31216

This location is a personal favorite because you don’t have to ask for extra chocolate chips when ordering the Chocolate Chip Waffle.  They just know that the entire waffle should be covered with chocolate.  The staff is extra friendly, and since it isn’t near many bars or clubs, there aren’t many drunk patrons to holler over.

2.  Waffle House
Pierce & Riverside

2644 Riverside Drive
Macon, GA 31204

A direct quote from one of our gatekeepers who visits this location quite often.

“The food is consistently good, and the Saturday staff is the most friendly in town.”

A menu favorite at this Waffle House is hash browns with chili and cheese. 

3.  Waffle House
Chamber Road (by Shooters)

4731 Chamber Road
Macon, GA 31206

So, your New Year’s Eve festivities lead you to Shooters…no judgment here!  Just walk across the parking lot to one of the cleanest Waffle Houses in town.  A personal favorite is the scramble eggs with grits and raisin toast.

4.  Waffle House
Gray Hwy (Goody’s Parking lot)

1330 Gray Hwy
Macon, GA 31211

This location is one of the newest in town, and has been open just over a year.  The staff is friendly, and the food is not only good but served quickly.  So if you want to grab and go, this location should be at the top of your list.  Oh, and the coffee is good too!

5.  Waffle house
Zebulon Road

6220 Zebulon Road
Macon, GA 31210

Maybe it’s the location, but this is a quiet Waffle House.  So if you want to eat in peace, then make the drive to the Waffle House on Zebulon Road.  The food is good, and you can recount the nights festivities with friends over a great waffle.

Honorable Mention

Waffle House – Riverside Drive near Spring Street
840 Riverside Drive
Macon, GA 31201

This location is the most convenient to downtown, and is a morning after hotspot for Mercer's finest.  Being that it is located so close to the clubs and bars, the party keeps on going at this location.
