Breakfast fans on the east side, rejoice: Stone Mountain has a drive-thru Waffle House! The Norcross-based chain is testing the concept for the second time; the first WaHo window opened in August 2008 and closed after a year. The experiment fizzled because of the restaurant’s location on Fulton Industrial Boulevard, which, according to Waffle House spokesperson Pat Warner, wasn’t on “the breakfast side of the road.” In the new Stone Mountain spot, the drive-thru window will be open for limited hours—breakfast and lunch only—and serve foods that can be cooked quickly and consumed easily. You can still have your hash browns—you’ll just get them in a bowl. Will more drive-thrus follow? “I don’t know,” Warner says. “That’s why we’re testing it!”
