Ludacris's Southern food restaurant, named after his triple-platinum album "Chicken N Beer," is a long time coming: Nearly five years, according to plans he announced in early 2012. And considering the album came out in 2003, some fans have been waiting 13 years for this moment—because how can you name an album "Chicken N Beer" and then not actually open a restaurant called Chicken + Beer?
As of November 17, the restaurant is now up and running at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Concourse D. On Instagram, Luda slightly underplayed the amount of time involved, saying "It took me three years but it's finally coming to fruition." He added, "Anything that's worth waiting for is worth having. And we are finally here, Chicken + Beer... in the busiest airport in the world. I'm talking about great food, great drinks, great energy."
On the menu? Chicken with pecan waffles, pork belly sliders, wings, shrimp and grits and more. And, of course, beer.
