Does anybody else love waffle house like me. The cheese omelet is GREAT ! So thick and fluffy ! They whip it in a blender. Have not had any bad meals at waffle house. Waffles are good too.

I really enjoy the hash browns there. Covered and smothered and well please (that means with cheese, onions and cooked well done).

I'm reluctant to admit it because I'm supposed to not like chain restaurants, but often times when I crave a small-tread waffle, which I much prefer to the Belgian kind, Waffle House is the only game in town. And I like it!

I'm a Waffle House fan. My breakfast is usually four eggs scrambled with cheese, potatoes, scattered, smothered (with onions), peppered (jalpeno slices) and topped (chili), with whole wheat toast. Sometimes, though, I'll get a few poached eggs on toast with grits.

I'm also a fan of their patty-melts, and Waffle House is one of the few places where I can get them to cook a patty of chopped meat rare.

And the coffee is great. Best of all, though, is the great show going on at the griddle. Half the fun of eating in a Waffle House is watching the grill people doing their thing.

The most memorable non-chain breakfast I've ever had was back in 1984 in Berea, KY, in a historically-styled little restaurant on the village square. The name of the restaurant escapes me, but it was staffed by college students and served up a really classy yet reasonably-priced breakfast. I had these amazing pecan pancakes with equally amazing real maple syrup and real butter. And fresh OJ. It was very memorable because 1) the taste and 2) the presentation. I have yet to encounter any Waffle House/IHOP/Denny's that could top a day-starter like that one!

We've been fans of WH for years. They have good basic food and I love watching the cook work. Real models of memory and efficiency. How else could they get all those orders out so fast? We have also found that you can always get a good look at the locals as every WH we have ever been in seems to have a raft of regulars that come in. You can catch up on the local news while having breakfast.

One disturbing trend, however. I was in Birmingham a few months ago and had breakfast at a new WH. It seemed to have gone up scale with much more room than the normal roadside diners. I hope they don't go the Applebee's route or some such thing.

You are talking about the Daniel Boone Inn in Berea, KY. It is a legendary foodstop, reviewed by Jane and Micheal's Grandparents in 1829, I believe..hehehe All kidding aside, it is a great stop for any meal.

I have eaten in a number of WH, and I must say that I have found them all consistent when it comes to food quality. Now quality of service is a different matter all together. Unfortunately I can't say that has been all that consistent.

Waffle House will always have a special place in my heart; I was driving from Massachusetts to Nashville to go to the Country Music Hall of Fame (by far the best Hall of Fame I've ever visited), when we decided to detour into the hills of eastern Tennessee to search for Melungeons (a mysterious and unique ethnic group that may or may not be descended from the doomed 16th century English colonists at Roanoke Island in what is now North Carolina). We didn't find any, and what's more, found ourselved in Knoxville, TN on Christmas Eve. Waffle House was the only place that was open, and my travelling companion and I were extremely grateful.

Did you ever find any reading material on that group? I have heard folktales, but haven't ever seen anything documented about their existence. There even was a segment on the PBS Appalachian Tales TV series. But I didn't get to follow up on it then either. One of the legends was that they also were desendants of some of DeSoto's explorers from his trip thru the Mississippi Valley. Please contact me off the boards as we are getting off-topic here.

We don't have Waffle House in my area - I love Walker Brothers Original Pancake House in Wilmette, Illinois. Everything is good - omelets, pancakes, perfect eggs (hash browns aren't my favorite there), good sausage and bacon. It suits all the family tastebuds since they have chocolate chip pancakes too!

Has anybody tried "Nifty Fifties" in Philly.. From what I understand it is a three store chain family owned... One is located in the Ironboud area in town... the others are on the outskirts.. The food is supream... the service even better.. the lines are long.. but worth the wait.... They have at least 40 flavors of Ice Cream.. and if you come up with a good one they will make it and post it on the menue... Only frest orange and grapefruit juices are served.. and I mean FRESH... right from the Bushel covered in chipped ice.. to a Giant Citrus Press, screwed right to the counter in front of you... directly to your glass.... WOW... !!! they also come out and serve fresh hot coffee or shakes while you wait on line... Their Hamburgers are Ground hand pressed right in front of you in a white tiled Glass room... My hats off to these guys... I never go to Philly and not stop in for a meal or Three...LOL.. Larry....

While in school in Atlanta in the late 60's I used to go to a WH for meals whenever I could afford it. I dont remember where it was except close to downtown and on Peachtree, and if you know atlanta saying something is on peachtree is like saying the place has a door. This one had the freshest eggs I've ever eaten in a restaurant. and the only place I've ever had really top notch grits. To this day, I'll always stop at a waffle house when traveling. They are just good old fashioned diners.[:)

Yes, I have been to a few Waffle Houses in my time and they were all very good. Not only for breakfast but for lunches and dinners too. By watching how they made waffles, I was able to come up with a slammin pancake. Wish they had some in Connecticut.

I see that Waffle House seems to be spreading northward. They now have locations in MD and PA, and the locals seem to really like them in those areas. Probably a lot of patronage by truckers from the South. A good Waffle House location would be the first exit on the NJ Turnpike at the Delaware Mem. Bridge. I bet it would do great with all the truck traffic in that area. Cracker Barrell is there already, can WH be far behind?

In my opinion the Waffle House is the only chain that truly belongs in the "Road Food " category. There are few places that remain consistent. I can state that Krispy Kreme, Krystal, White Castle and the Waffle House are the only ones that have stayed the same. Look at McDonalds, they have produced products that have got smaller, charged more and reduced quality. Waffle Houseis SUPER

I never have eaten at a Waffle House, other than the Indiana chain of the same name (which I understand has changed their name, and has gone downhill in the last ten years).

Cracker Barrel restaurants are uniformly good, though I suspect the best ones are in Tennessee where the chain started.

The best recent breakfast I've had was at the Frontier in Albuquerque. Two eggs over easy, carne adovada, hash browns, fresh baked tortillas, Red Rock coffee (local roaster), and a Frontier Roll split with my wife. Mmmmmm good!

In my traveled opinion, Cracker Barrell is at the best average. You never get fresh food,, the bisquits are almost cold, they do not have good breakfast potatoes and they are not southern as they claim. I go there, but it is only because I have people in my company from other places that want to. Their lunch is OK, but that is all. They are a Tennessee company, but their food ain't

I have only been to two Huddle House's but my experiences were both very good. Both visits were on a trip and early in the am. I found the food every bit as good as WH. But then, there was no crowd and the food came hot.

My only real gripe with both WH and HH, is that they allow smoking anywhere in the resturant. Now I'm not really down on smokers, but I really hate to sit in a resturant and have someone sit right behind me and start smoking. Kinda ruins the food enjoyment for me!



And I was not aware that Huddle house had been around that long. I guess they are just kind of new to my area.

I've been to Huddle House places in Tennesee and Georgia and thought they were good, although I prefer Waffle House. A similar chain in the South is Omlette House. I've been to a couple of those in Alabama.

I found the Huddle House on the internet. Everything appears almost identical to the Waffle house except the color. The menu is almost identical down to the hasbrowns which are offered the same way. You know"covered, smothered, etc.

I had said in an earlier e-mail that they had been around for 50 years. The web site indicated 36 years and about 350 stores located in the southeastern states.

The first WH I went to was in Virgina Beach back in 1976. Ever since then, where ever I travel, if I am not near a restaraunt listed in "Road Food" etc I will always look for WH.

Waffle Houses are terrific; they have the best hash browns ever, and that is a real accomplishment. I like the plain waffles better than the pecan waffles. The bacon is remarkably good, smokier and crunchier than the supoermarket variety. In fact, everything at the WH is good, at least throughout North Carolina. Cracker Barrel is another story; it is worse than mediocre, and some of it is inedible. Waffle House belongs; Cracker Barrel doesn't.

One of the reasons I like Waffle House, aside from its hours of operation and hash-house ambience, is that it's one of the few places that still makes small-tread waffles. Belgians have virtually taken over, and while I don't HATE a Belgian waffle, it cannot compare to an elegant old-fashioned one, as served at[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=586']Willy Nick's[/url] in Katonah, New York.

Actually, this photo is two piled atop one another -- an ideal way to melt maximum amounts of butter in between. That measly single cup in the background was only the beginning!

One of the things that I appreciate about the Waffle House is their consistency. They seem to be the same every location and they go with the greeting everytime you enter the establishment. Grits are good, waffle is good, hash browns are great and every thing is good. The only complaint I have heard is the smoking policy. Food is outstanding.

One thing that I have never understood is how they do the turnover thing. There is not that much space and you seem to be able to get a seat no matter when you enter. I do not like the stools where you pay. The customers have to reach over you.

Dearfolk,
The Waffle House/Huddle House debate continues on ad nauseum, doesn't it? Huddle House began after Waffle House: a disgruntled WH manager left and started up HH: WH's first store opened in 1955 on College Avenue in Avondale Estates, Georgia... I think it's an insurance agency now. WH # 1 is right up the street, but it's a new building. HH began in about 1957. Both are headquartered in the Metro Atlanta area, hence the proliferation of both in this area.
In Indiana, someone had already trademarked the name "Waffle House," so WH stores there are known as Waffle & Steak. Interesting trivia, I suppose.
My favorite breakfast place in Atlanta is The Lakewood Diner on Lakewood Avenue in Southwest Atlanta. The location used to be a Huddle House, but the chain closed it. The shopping center owner recruited the old employees (many of whom had worked together there for 15-20 years), cleaned the space up, and reopened it. It's a non-chain eatery and superbly, loveably unfancy. Bet'cha I could write an entire novel there in two weeks' time.
Another good breakfast place is The Majestic Food Shop on Ponce de Leon Avenue. It's been in the same location since the Plaza Shopping Center opened in 1938.
Next time I visit Judy's Diner in Lilburn, I'll report back to y'all. This is a mom-and-pop neighborhood eatery diagonally across U. S. 29 from Spiced Right Bar-B-Q, one of Atlanta area's very best... a double whammy if there ever was one.
In Charlotte, The Landmark Diner on Central Avenue is superb. My favorite thing there is a livermush-and-feta cheese omelette of my own concoction. Only in North Carolina, folks.

Sorry I missed your question to my posting until now, scbuzz. Yes, AYCE = All you can eat. When I lived in Texas 93-98, the local WH's in the area had an AYCE selection. Cheap, too. If I remember correctly they had a low price in the morning and a higher price after noon. But that may have only been in the DFW Metromess area.

A friend and I ate at a Waffle House in Nashville and we were
hooked. Breakfasts are pretty basic in preparation, but these
folks know their stuff. Everything was perfect. We then tried
to eat at every one we could find as we went cross-country.
(transporting a car bought on eBay). My only regret is that
the chain has yet to reach the West Coast.

If I were an accredited investor, I'd buy a good half-dozen

We have No WH in Michigan (Maybe is true)

The food was very good, and I would have frequented them more often, but
the Parking lots were consistently small, and impossible to park a RV, Travel Trailer,

So I ate at the CB the first day out ... and the WH was better, and cheaper

I understand (childhood memory, not hard data) that the Huddle House chain started out as a knock-off of an earlier chain called "Toddle House," where one was supposed to "toddle in" for a meal. The HH's I've visited fit the general appraisal: much like Waffle House, slightly less extensive menu. Great hash-browns!

Ah, the Frontier. Until a little over a year ago, I lived three blocks from the Frontier. The massive weight gain I experienced when living in Albuquerque was directly related to this fact.

However, I certainly didn't get fat from the Waffle Houses there. There were four or five of them, and I ate at three of them several times each, and I was uniformly disappointed every time. The food was that unfortunate combo of skimpy and substandard. Perhaps being that far from the home office, they weren't bothering to be up to code?

Always loved the self-advertising songs on the jukebox, though.

I love Waffle Haouse. They are usually very consistent food-wise. I am glad I saw the tip about being able to order the hash browns 'well' as I like mine a bit crispier. The waffles, like the pecan waffle are sublime and even the sandwich-y type food is good.

We were hoping some would slowly creep up into the Washington DC area, and they made it to Potomac Mills Mall, but then skipped to north of Baltimore with, I think, nothing in between. Do the Waffle House folks think central Marylanders don't want Waffle House hospitality?! They would be sadly mistaken!

We live in NJ, so whenever we load our two boys in the car (15 & 11) & drive to Florida, even they can't wait to stop at Waffle House. The cheese omelettes are light & fluffy and the pecan waffles are scrumptious! There is also some kind of Texas cheesesteak sandwich that beats many a Philly cheesesteak, which tend to be overated (maybe I say that because I'm from North Jersey orginally).

The only problem areas with WH is that sometimes they are not very clean and also the smoking issue...

Dearfolk,
Here comes Carolyn, the librarian, shutting the machines off, so I gotta hurry.
Huddle House started in 1962, according to their menu, which I checked a couple of days ago. Their menu is larger than is Waffle House's; they are one notch less corporate in their outlook.
Used to be a single-location place in Sandy Springs north of Atlanta called The Char House. When they widened Roswell Road, it was a casualty. Sniff. I only ate there once; it was A++ good!
