waffle house is simply a chain that has diners that are like many all of us have went to in the past. eat rite, courtesy,and the like. every city has a greasy spoon that people go to. waffle house simply franchised them into a staple across a large area. do they have drama? sure,they do. there a cheap place to eat with a common denominater of being cheap. and thats gonna attract a certain clientele. ive eaten at em and they are a good place to eat on the fly but they arent fancy nor do they try to be. if you need a quick bite to eat,they are great,but they arent high falutin. and i dont have a problem with that.

"Last month, when a Florida state representative was ridiculed for proposing that death row inmates be killed by electrocution or firing squad, he said the idea had come from a constituent he met at - you guessed it - a Waffle House."

This explains a lot.

FunkOut: Much better restaurant.


As "Der Wienerschnizel" should have been "Das ..." So should be "Das Wafflehaus" as Schnitzel and Haus are neuter nouns. The definite article takes the gender of the final root noun.

A final line is drawn in the south.

Those responsible have gotten away.

No other option exists.

It's time to...

...eat at the Waffle House on Christmas!

Wafflehouse is great for hangovers! But they have gotten pretty funky. I remember them being a lot nicer when I was a kid. I probably go once a year now when I need to write off a whole day due to a bad hangover.

As with most chains restaurants, the location is a big indicator of quality of food and whether you will get your a$$ robbed. The ones in the northern ATL burbs aren't that bad.

Not to mention, you don't hear the name of the restaurant when it's someplace 99% of the world won't know if you said it. Like saying "OMG did you hear what happened at the Red Arrow last night?" No one outside of Manchester, New Hampshire is going to know what the fark you're talking about, even if it involves Adam Sandler and a goat. You're just gonna remember that I mentioned Adam Sandler and a goat in the same sentence.

\it's an insanely good diner

Waffle house is the Denny's for hillbillies. Drunker you are, the better the food.

CSB time

I actually did this with my family as a kid. One year we left at 3 AM Christmas morning to go on a ski trip for a week in West Virginia. We stopped at the WH for breakfast because it was the only place open.

/We were the only car on I-85 for a couple of miles, which blew my 14 year old mind

Last time I was in a Waffle House, a guy sat down next to me, ordered a bacon cheeseburger without the bun, a sweet tea, a pickle and a bowl of mayonaise. He ate it all. The mayo wasn't a condiment. He ate it like a soup.

Waitress gave me a head shake that told me this was far from the first time they'd seen him in there doing the same damn thing.

Waffle House is also responsible for some unusual technological breakthroughs in the United States, specifically a machine that will slice bacon thinner than a piece of paper. I swear you can almost see right through waffle house bacon.

Waffle house, Walmart, Wisconsin, hell we just need a "W" tag to describe them all.
George Webbs included-the "Waffle house" of Wisconsin. Saw so much shiat in them
all the time it puts you southern WH employees/customers to shame.

Naturally. Then, when you've hit the wall, you can visit Waffle House and order breakfast.

Nothing fancy, plain good food, cooked however you want, and you're never more than about 25ft from the grill.

I've never encountered a rude or bad server. The workers tend to be the type that enjoy interacting with people, so the unsociable ones end up working somewhere else.

One of my favorite little perks upon moving back to Nashville from New Orleans (aside from the dramatically decresed chance of being shot) is that Waffle House is once again everywhere.

It's a special now-and-then treat. Scattered smothered covered and chunked.

I believe that was part of the joke; there was nothing authentically German about the place, which was really just a tarted-up coffee shop.

"You can't escape stereotypes," Ms. Thrasher said. "It's not that more of these stories happen at Waffle Houses. It's just getting more attention when it happens at a Waffle House."

And all it takes is one standup routine to set you back a few years.

A Waffle House manager once came to my aid when my car broke down on I-24 between Nashville and Murfreesboro. Even tried to buy me a cup of coffee and let me use the phone. I paid for the coffee and left as much of a tip as I could, though.
