I don't know where Scorereader finds the Waffle House restaurants he descibes. I can recall just one Waffle House where I thought things were dirty and the staff painfully bad. That was in Wytheville, Virginia. Every other Waffle House I've ever been in, from Ohio to Florida, and including places from Alabama to Missouri, has been clean, neat, and with a staff that's been friendly and helpful.
Greensboro, NC Triad Region - dotted along I-85 - I've been to Several from Thomasville to Elon.
Richmond Area dotted along 95 and 64. The one in Richmond city was particularly heinous.
Pennsylvania north of Scranton - the kitchen was a mess, the floors were a mess, the bathroom was wiped down, but streaks, a lightly rank smell (not simply the person before me - was more like wet socks), and a clogged sink. I had to ask for new silverware, because my knife and fork were greasy.
SW Virginia dotted along I-81. It may have been Whytheville. Roanoke near US 220 wasn't particularly great either.
And, I've shown countless issues of kitchen and dining area issues over the years. And others have commented as well. So, it's not that the information hasn't been made available. Staff has always been friendly. Food has been just ok. I had grits in NC that were god-awful. So bad, I almost stopped eating grits altogether.
I'd like to know where all these clean ones are.
The one in Frederick I was speaking about, I was told, is the one close to Rt. 15 exit. There are several other chain restaurants near this Waffle House.
You may ask, why did I go back all these times. Usually, except for two times when we were travelling and it was the only place open, I was with a group of people and that was the group's choice. I was, essentially, out voted. They were all southern people who grew up on WH. The one in PA was on Christmas morning. I appreciated they were open - the only place to be open, but it was pretty bad.
