Quote of the day

All that you’ve loved is all you own.

-Tom Waits

The very first Chick-fil-A in Hapeville has a fresh look.


The Hapeville Dwarf house is where it all started. This classic diner is open all day, every day. It offers drive-thru, counter, and sit-down service. The Hapeville Dwarf House menu includes the Chick-fil-A (r), classic sandwich, steak, hamburgers, and the hot brown, which is chicken with cream sauce, cheese, and bacon. Sides include Macaroni & Cheese and Cole Slaw. Customers can also order homemade Lemon, Chocolate, or Coconut Pie for dessert.

Truett Cathy founded the Hapeville Dwarf house in 1946. Originally called the Dwarf Grill, it is where the Original Chick-fil-A (r-) Chicken Sandwich was born. Cathy invented the boneless chicken sandwich in this restaurant. He asked his customers to test it until he had perfected the recipe in 1964. The original Dwarf House, which still serves Chick-fil-A’s original menu, offers a glimpse back to the origins of Chick-fil-A. It also serves burgers! Chick-fil-A menu.

The beloved original Dwarf House restaurant in Hapeville is going to be getting a major overhaul.

In a post to the restaurant’s Facebook page, a representative said that the Hapeville location closed on April 30, 2021. Well, they are so excited to announce their restaurant will be reopening Feb. 17th for full dine-in, carry-out, and drive-thru service!
