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

The original Hapeville Dwarf House is where Chick-Fil-A began 75 years ago. It still serves items from Truett Cathy’s original menu, including -- believe it or not -- hamburgers.

“Founded by Truett Cathy in 1946, the Hapeville Dwarf House (originally named the Dwarf Grill) is the birthplace of the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich,” Chick-Fil-A said on its website. “It was in this restaurant that Cathy first invented the boneless chicken sandwich and asked his customers to taste test it for him until he perfected the recipe in 1964.”
