Waffle House

I LOVE THE WAFFLE HOUSE!!!! It is one of my favorite places to eat. I came home tonight, after teaching a class, and ran to put on my comfy clothes and headed over there. I get the same thing every time here lately... An All-Star Special.... Scrambled Eggs, Crispy Bacon, Waffle, Toast with Grape Jelly, and Hash browns Covered.... This is a change from a few years ago... I used to only eat a Patti Melt with no onions, and my hash browns were always covered and chunked. Here are just a few reasons I like the Waffle House...

1. It is a great place to relax... The atmosphere is not high-paced or in a hurry... Just sit and enjoy the meal.

2. The workers are some of the friendliest, kindest people. They really know a lot about customer service. They smile and welcome every one who walks in the door, regardless of who it is... and they give you anything you need, and are happy to do it. I know a few other restaurants that could learn a thing or two from the W.F.

3. It takes me back to my college days... I had some absolutely great nights studying... ok... talking and being silly and a little bit of studying... I miss those times.

4. It's a great place to be when it snows. Almost every time it snows I meet my mom there to eat so we can watch it through their big windows... We didn't go this last time... Hopefully we will get some more.

Do you like the Waffle House? What do you get? How do you eat your hash browns?
Share some of your Waffle House memories.

I always get a small hashbrown - scattered, smothered, covered, chunked and well done. And, I get a waffle, although I never can eat it all. -LLR


Teri, to answer your question about Waffle House hashbrown lingo, covered and chunked means with cheese and ham.

I spent many of studyless night at WH in TR! I always ended up having to go back to my room and stay up the rest of the night to actually study. I don't miss those days!

I love the waffle house but have never actually ordered or eaten a waffle there. Silly I know but I have a warm place in my heart for the big yellow sign with simple black letters. The first weekend after I had my "for real" drivers license I pulled out of the driveway on a Saturday night after dark and didn't know where to go. I went back home got my little brother and treated us both to a Patti Melt plate../w hash browns scattered and smothered. Fond fond memories of the waffle house.
