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.

They waffle house is simply a stand in for places that don't have greasy diners. But they have corporate resources behind the basic idea concept of 'greasy 24 hour diner' so they can manage to stay open under extreme circumstances. Also, all their employees are felons and scared of going back, so they are more likely to risk going into work.

Most (if not all) WHs run on natural gas, so even if electricity goes out, they can still operate, thus why they're able to go 'yellow' and still serve a limited menu when everyone else is shut down.

Full shutdown means they realize even they can't do it.

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".

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)

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.

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.

People make fun of Waffle House bc it's primarily a Southern chain. I've been to diners all over the country that we were way more f*cked up than your typical  Waffle House, and seemed to have just as many drunken scenes. We just hear about WH more often because there's like 19 bajillion of them.

stuck on the mountain. I went in a couple of times to help myself, but I'd clean the restrooms, sweep and mop the floor, restock paper bags at the checkout counters, and a whole bunch of other little jobs.

Also, all their employees are felons and scared of going back, so they are more likely to risk going into work.

I have it on good authority that no more than 30% of their employees are felons, and 15% have never even been convicted of a misdemeanor.

When I was a kid I worked for Denny's. Back then, this was true: Denny's was open 24/7, and there were no locks on the doors.

We did close once for a tropical storm when I was there, and we had to keep people inside the building because 1) it was only a tropical storm, not this kind of monster, and 2) there were no locks on the doors.

When Denny's changed policy and began closing for Christmas day, they had to go around and install locks on all the buildings.

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.

"Yeah, smells like sex alright." I reply.

"Damn straight there, skippy!" She said and she turns around to talk to her boyfriend.

There was a trucker sitting to my left. We started talking about the best truck/rest areas in the country to get a good looking cheap clean hooker.

He says, "Yeah, I've seen my share of some really shady crack ho's at some rest areas but the cleanest ho's I've seen were off I-40 in Nebraska, so if you're ever in Nebraska, stop by..tell them "Big John" sent ya..."

If anything, Waffle House is a great place for a good story...

There are 2 near me. One in a absolute shiat part of town and one in the suburbs. The one in the suburbs is nasty and the more urban one is like how you described. It routinely gets "A" or "B" health grades.

Diners don't close in NJ... The staff count just gets lower as the disaster progresses. If you walk into an empty one, you're the cook for the next 2 hours.

aungen: *suddenly cops arrive and surround the place, and everyone is arrested*


I've got two CSBs for Waffle House and emergency services. Both happened at the same Waffle House too, hanging out with same friend, we both worked night shift so days off we would get together, hit WH, then watch bad movies.
#1- Just eating and talking around 2am, when a fire truck with sirens goes by. Ok. Then another. And another. Now we're all wondering what's going on, as the sirens are stopping somewhere close. Then a chemical response unit comes by, and several new customers are all coming in at once. They're all talking up a storm, and we find out that the hotel across the street just evacuated because they found a meth lab on the 3rd floor. Apparently there was a chemical spill, the two young entrepreneurs fled the room and the security guard noticed.

#2 - A few weeks later, around midnight, and the WH is pretty busy. A young Marine and his date are in the booth next to us, apparently just come from the Ball as they were both very spiffy. A bunch of gang types are in the booth on their other side, and one of them is drunk and talking shiat to the Marine, who is very polite and try to defuse the situation. Drunk asshole keeps up, Marine and his date get up and pay, and asshole follows them in the lot, starts screaming at them, then pulls out a gun and fires it into the air several times. Everybody in the WH hits the ground and 911 gets about a dozen cellphone calls at the same time. Cop shows up a few minutes later, asshole has been holding the couple at gunpoint and continuing to scream nonsense at them, cop just talks to this asshole, tells him to go home, and rides off again.

Sometimes I like living in the NE Megalopolis.  Last time we got anything akin to a serious storm was 2012, and back then I got a trickle of water in my basement.

Irene f'ed all my stuff up as I was out of town before it came through and I had zero prep time.  Basement was full of water, so the cats couldn't hit the litter box.  So, they used my leather sofa as a stand buy.  Lightning hit the pole in front of my house and knocked out all my appliances.  Insurance company ripped me off big time.  Power was out for 5 days and we have a well, so no shower.  Flushed the toilet with water from the tub (which I filled as a joke), showered at work, and ate cocktail weenies night after night in the dark with no TV or internet.

Heard they were calling for 30" of rain in some parts.  There's just to hunk of ground capable of soaking all that up.  Those people are in for a ShietShow for sure.

First Battle of Manassas/Bull Run. People came out with picnic baskets and lounging chairs to watch the battle, like we would watch Medieval Times. Thought the Union would whip them and rebellion over. When the Johnny Rebs were the ones doing the whipping, the crowd noticed the battle was getting too close, and retreated in a panic.

Her: "Just had sex, smell my fingers"

When someone asks me to smell their fingers, I usually lean forward like I'm going to take a whiff... and I take the fingers right into my mouth.

stuck on the mountain. I went in a couple of times to help myself, but I'd clean the restrooms, sweep and mop the floor, restock paper bags at the checkout counters, and a whole bunch of other little jobs.
