The Dwarf House

About The Dwarf House

The Dwarf House® restaurant is a classic diner open six days a week, and offers sit-down, counter and drive-thru service. Along with the classic Chick-fil-A® menu, the Dwarf House staples include Dwarf Burgers, Giant Burgers and the famous Hot Brown, which is chicken mixed with cream sauce, cheese and bacon. Macaroni & Cheese, Fried Okra and Cole Slaw are also on the list of sides. For dessert, customers can order homemade Lemon, Chocolate or Coconut Pie.

History of The Dwarf House

The Dwarf House is where it all began. Founded by Truett Cathy in 1946, the Dwarf House (originally named the Dwarf Grill) is the birthplace of the Original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich. It was in this restaurant that Cathy first invented the boneless chicken sandwich and asked his customers to taste test it for him until he perfected the recipe in 1964.

Truett and his brother, Ben, named the restaurant The Dwarf Grill because of its modest size. Despite its small size, it quickly grew. More than 70 years later, the Dwarf House continues to give customers a glimpse into the beginnings of the Chick-fil-A franchise, serving items from Truett's original menu (including hamburgers!) along with the Chick-fil-A menu.
