Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles to open new location in Glendale


Southern-style chicken and waffles is coming to Glendale.

Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles will open to the public Friday, March 31 at Westgate Entertainment District in Glendale. The new location is at 9830 W. Westgate Blvd., Suite D 101, and will open that day at 10 a.m.

The restaurant’s original concept was launched by partners Crystal Smith and Ne-Yo in College Park, near Atlanta.

The menu features their namesake crispy fried chicken paired with golden waffles and their Southern staple mac and cheese.

“We look forward to bringing a taste of Atlanta to Arizona and sharing both our love for chicken & waffles and music with guests,” Ne-Yo shared in a news release. “Johnny’s Chicken & Waffles original location has been a huge hit and we believe it will become a new favorite dining destination at Westgate as well.”

Located adjacent to Yard House and Opa Life Greek Cafe, the 6,500-square-foot space will seat 150 customers both indoors and on a large, outdoor patio.

The restaurant will be open daily for brunch, lunch and dinner, with late-night service until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
