Decatur’s new Waffle House location will officially open Jan. 6 a spokesperson for the company says.

The restaurant will be located beneath Eddie’s Attic in downtown Decatur. There will be no official ceremony marking the event.

“Typically Waffle House does not do big grand openings however we are very excited to come to downtown Decatur,” spokesperson Kelly Thrasher said.

Judging by the response from the community, the feeling is mutual.

The building on 515 N. McDonough Street was originally a Belk’s department store, according to the city.

“Since the location was an existing building the layout may be slightly different than a traditional Waffle House but it will still have the same feel,” Thrasher said in November.

The Waffle House chain got its start in 1955, right down the road in Avondale Estates. It’s now a Waffle House Museum, open a few days a week for tours.
