Joe Stapler: NotThatGuyAgain:...and they're usually as clean as any other restaurant I've been in.

What other restaurants have you been to?


Name a chain and I've probably been in it at some point.

How many restaurants do you go to where you can watch them cook your food?  I'll bet ya a hunk o'cash that WaHo cooking areas are kept a lot cleaner than restaurants where you can't see the kitchen (I've worked as kitchen staff before).

And note that I used the word "usually".

Boojum2k: I've sat out a couple of horrendous thunderstorms in Waffle Houses while traveling. Kinda relaxing, watching rain pound on the glass so hard you can't see the parking at all, thunder shaking the building, and the staff just cheerfully went about their business and I had coffee and food until storm passed.
When they close, all hell is coming through.


This.  Got stuck with a couple motorcycle friends for about 3 hours in a WaHo in Union City, Georgia.  Union City is a shiathole and their WaHo was as well.  It was very clear we were not welcome there due to the color of our skin although the one employee that served us was a sweet old lady (wearing slippers, lol).  The rest of the staff and other customers gave us the stink eye the entire time and I think the only reason things diudn't get physical was because we were all "bikered out" and they didn't want to fark with an MC (we weren't in any MC but John Q never realizes that)

The sign has a number to call in case of emergency.

What constitutes a Waffle House emergency?

I don't see one waffle on that table. Where's the sweet tea? I also don't see anything smothered, covered, or diced.

It's slowing, that's BAD as it means it will sit and dump rain.   The coastal areas just had their forecasted rainfall almost double to 40".

I-40 runs through the southern states and I doubt there's a clean ho amongst the bunch along that route.
I-80 runs through Nebraska.  It's where all the clean Lot Lizzards are.

NotThatGuyAgain: I don't do WaHo very often but the times I have I've rarely had a bad experience.  It's not easy to fark up what they serve, it's consistent, and they're usually as clean as any other restaurant I've been in.  And the servers and staff are almost always very friendly.

steklo: CSB
Waffle House, Walnut St. Cary, NC Circa 1996

One night I couldn't sleep. Completely restless. My girlfriend suggested I go to the Waffle House around the corner. So I did. It's like 2AM...

I sit at the counter and place my order. As I am waiting a guy and a girl come in. They are drunk. The girl sits next to me on my right at the counter.

"Hey, we just had sex! Wanna smell my fingers?" She asks me.
Before I could say a word, she sticks her hand up to my nose.

It's ok food if you aren't too picky. Some of the restaurants are palpably filthy, though. Considering the fact that basically every time I've gone to Denny's I've gotten half-assed, shiatty food and bad service, I'd probably rather go to WH.

If it's open but serving a limited menu, that means the index is yellow.
If a Waffle House is closed, the index turns red.

[Youtube-video https://www.youtube.com/embed/Dok7x-mU​cvM]


Despite me using the term "usually," you counter with 1 out of the 132 WaHo's in Georgia failing a health inspection, and used a video made by a stand up comedian at that.  Sounds legit.  And 4 days later it got a 96/A inspection and has scored above 90 ever since.

https://www.ajc.com/news/local/atlant​a​-waffle-house-that-inspired-comedian-v​iral-rant-was-rechecked/CI3OIH09P1QlO0​KJ5nNBGN/

Most of the inspection grades for WaHo in my county are A's and B's.  A couple C's and U's but the majority are A/B.

Why?
Green - power, water, sewage working. Full menu means normal deliveries (roads/ports are open)
Yellow - some utilities. Limited delivery.
Red. No utilities. Access is blocked/flooded
