Nana G’s Food Truck, Atlanta

Nana Grimes, who celebrates her 103rd birthday in 2013, began making waffles for her family in the 1940s. “Times were tight back then, so she would crumble up bacon in them to make them go a little farther,” explains her daughter Paula Hollcroft. “We serve her recipes now, with those same bacon-bit Belgian waffles, topped with fried chicken with her secret blend of spices and a dusting of powdered sugar and maple syrup.” Nana G’s home cooking comes courtesy of a food truck—and they’re adding a second truck to meet the growing demand for her classic cooking. nanagchik-n-waffles.com
