AP Article - Waffle House: Still Dishing at Age 50

ATLANTA - It's well past midnight and a movie theater manager sits down to supper after his shift. A couple nearby sips coffee. In walk two women who have, in all fairness, seen better days, their jeans worn thin, their hair matted. The women don't even merit a stare. This is Waffle House.

(also)

Two percent of all eggs produced in the United States for food service end up on a Waffle House plate.

You know, I have NEVER eaten at a Waffle House.

What makes them so special??? Is it really cheap or is the food just that good?

It’s REALLY good. Good value – I plunk about 5 or 6 bucks – great for a full hot breakfast and coffee.

Why else would you produce an egg?
edit:I guess that doesn't include food prepared at home.

Also, regarding maple syrup

Whenever anyone in my family travels overseas, we always send a postcard to our local Waffle House.

I wondered about that, too. Guess it does not include eggs sold in supermarkets.

Waffle House is great – I’m craving some of their eggs and some of their hash browns smothered, covered, diced, and topped.

I love Waffle House. It's usually the best option to get a breakfast when you're touring the country (way better than the breakfast crap at McD's). Lot's of choices at reasonable prices. Though in all honesty, I have seen my fair share of rednecks there  Wink .

Could somebody run over to Waffle House and ship some hash browns "all the way" (minus jalapenos) to England for me?

I love living here, but I must admit that the "Little Chef" chain (I believe that's the name of it) leaves much to be desired.

Where else are you gonna get steak and eggs at 0300 in Hahira or Ludowisi or Odessa or hundreds of other places?

Waffle House is good food fast, and you will see the cross section of wherever you live eating there.

Did you know that there are over 100 ways to get your hashbrowns at the Waffle?

AA777flyer The Aweful house SUCKS, it is the WALMART of restaurants. It makes Dennys look gourmet! Wafflehouse is for the true redneck - trailer trash crowd.


Bite me. I dare you to walk into a Waffle House and say that. I think you just insulted a significant portion of the US A.net membership, and you owe an apology, before significant retaliation takes place. Opinions of the food quality are one thing, but calling me and everyone here that enjoys the Waffle trailertrash is calling us out for a fight.

Care to rephrase?

Oh, and the best way for a waffle there is to ask for it 'well'.

Hash browns.....scattered, covered, topped and well. Smothered if you don't have to impress anyone with your breath later.  Wink

Dammit, I'm hungry....I'm gonna go to the Waffle House. Later.

Oh get your nose out of the air.

The Waffle House is great. Sure the clientelle (and employees) sometimes are a bit iffy. But its damn good food, and a hell of a value. My roommate and I ended up there one night at like 3am...got an awesome breakfast for two for like $12. You can't beat that.

And for $1.20 I dare you to find a better cup of coffee, with unlimited refills.

The Wafflehouse that I went to in an upscale Atlanta neighborhood (Buckhead) had clientel that looked rather far from the redneck, trailer trash, cousin lovin' folk you seem to think eat there.

The food quality is pretty bad, and it's not somewhere I'd plan to go to for breakfast, but when you're on the road, you can do a lot worse than the Waffle House for breakfast.

The 2% of eggs thing does surprise me though.

I for one won't go near one. Never ate at one.. but after watch a Dateline special on the number of health violations they found at Waffle House, was enough to scar me for life. Granted, it's sensationalism at it's finest; but it worked on me in this case.. nothing like the image of cockroaches and rats on the floor and spilled food being left for days to ruin one's appetite.

I'll stick to IHOP thanks.. even though I'm sure I'll get flamed for that.  Wink

I used to live in Atlanta, where there are literally places with a Waffle House on 3 corners of the same intersection just to handle the traffic.

BCA....if you want to stay out of an entire restaurant chain, or category of restaurants because one of them had a poor health department test, Stevie, you'll have to avoid Chinese, Mexican, Italian restaurants for the rest of your life.....along with Denny's, IHOPs and every other chain out there.

I will force you to eat at a Waffle House the next time you are down here, or in NO and you will like it. 'Nuff said.
