VIDEO: Joe Biden Visits Waffle House After Debate

Joe and Jill Biden visited a Waffle House in Atlanta following Biden’s debate with Trump.

Biden visited the Waffle House to pick up a to-go order and greeted patrons and staff there.

While he was at the restaurant, Biden was asked how he thought he did in the debate, to which he responded, “I think we did well.”

He added, “I have a sore throat.”

Watch Biden’s visit here:


Less than two hours after sparring with former President Donald Trump for 90 minutes during the first presidential debate of 2024, President Joe Biden made a brief stop at a popular 24/7 restaurant chain that is a staple in the South.

President Biden and first lady Jill Biden made a late-night stop at a Waffle House in Atlanta. As they picked up a to-go order, Biden shook hands with customers as he headed to the counter to pick up the order that was already bagged for the Bidens. It was unclear what the Bidens ordered.

President Biden was then asked about his debate performance.

“I think we did well,” he said, adding that he didn’t have any concerns about his debate performance. “It’s hard to debate a liar. The New York Times pointed out he lied 26 times. Big lies.”

President Biden was also asked whether he was feeling sick.

“I have a sore throat,” he said.

Check out what 11 Alive reported:

It’s almost impossible to make a trip to Georgia and not pay a visit to one of the Peach State’s most famous eateries — Waffle House.

That’s where President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden stopped by following Thursday night’s highly-watched presidential debate with former President Donald Trump. The couple stopped by 2758 Cobb Parkway SE in Cobb County for a late-night meal.

11Alive was at the Waffle House and spotted the motorcade coming down Cobb Parkway, just across the street from The Battery near Interstates 75 and 285.
Both Bidens were seen walking into the Waffle House with a crowd of people near the entrance to the restaurant.
