Nana’s Chicken & Waffles, a popular eatery that has grown in popularity from their vast assortment of waffles (including red velvet waffles, lemon waffles, cinnamon roll waffles, banana foster waffles, strawberry shortcake waffles, peach cobbler waffles, banana pudding waffles and more), have announced today that they are opening their second location in Sandy Springs  — at The Prado Shopping Center. The restaurant is located just inside the perimeter at 5600 Roswell Road, in a 2,800 square foot space, formally occupied by Marlow’s Tavern.   

The self-proclaimed “Queen of Waffles,” Kelli Ferrell, opened the first Nana’s Chicken-N-Waffles along Flat Shoals Roads in Conyers in 2016, and later relocated to Macdonough in 2022. The eatery also serves shrimp and grits, New Orleans style beignets, fried grit cakes, fried green tomatoes, crawfish bites and banana bread.

“We are so humbled as we announce our expansion into the Sandy Springs area — and look forward to opening in The Pravo Shopping Center, which the premiere destination for all things ‘shopping/retail, fitness/wellness, food & beverage’,” says Ferrell.

Ferrell has a cookbook, Kooking with Kelli, which is filled with delicious southern meals and mouth-watering dishes and is infused with inspiration and recipes, that have been passed down from generation to generation. To date, she has competed on Food Network’s “Ultimate Thanksgiving Challenge” &“Guy’s Grocery Games” and “Food Fantasies” on OWN Network.

Ferrell recently launched a line of waffle mix, 24K gold flaked maple syrup and stone-ground Cajun grits that are available for shipping nationwide via Nana’s Chicken & Waffles’ website and at their current location in Macdonough, Georgia.

“The demand to get a location within the perimeter has been huge,” she adds. “With this new location, we plan to satisfy that demand and bring our tasty menu options to new patrons.” 

Nana’s has been to continue on expanding their a secret menu, which adds an element of mystery to their culinary creation, which will include off-menu specials and hidden favorites shared only among insiders, which include items such as their Honey Lobster Sriracha Waffle.
