Did you know Waffle House has a "Regulars" Club?
It's free to join and you get deals and coupons and stuff. I just got a coupon for a Free Waffle.
Just printed one for me and my Bride. A perfect Date Night!
Here's how to do it:

Had lunch there today and they had a Table Topper that said you can text them while you're traveling and they will text back the nearest locations. Also they have a "Plan a Trip' feature on their web site. Similar to Mapquest. Before you leave home, plug-in your route. They'll pinpoint all the WH locations along your route! COOL!

I'm with you Scorereader.  The only difference I see between Waffle House and Denny's, Cracker Barrel, Applebee's, Perkin's, etc., is that Waffle House restaurants tend to be filthy as well as being a corporate chain (at least in my experience).  I would rather not eat than stop at a Waffle House.

Pigiron, I've experienced the same sanitary issues. But, it is a franchise. there are some owned by the coporation, but many/most are independently owned chains. They've been franchising since 1960.
 
Regarding cleanliness, I've beend talking about my experiences for some time now. NBC Dateline was putting together a report of family chains, and Waffle House was the big loser...until the Salmonella outbreak in Illinois occured, while they were preparing the story, shifting the story and eyes on Chili's. However, it's clear that Waffle House did not fair well in the report when you examine the numbers. Click for story

The Waffle Houses I go to are clean. The crews are always cleaning something in between serving customers. If you go in during the busy time, 7AM to 1PM, you'll find some that are messy, like any other busy kitchen. I've been in them from 1 to 2 PM and they're always cleaning up from the AM rush hours. 
They've been in business since 1955!  Today the Waffle House system operates more than 1,590 restaurants in 25 states and is the world’s leading server of waffles, T-bone steaks, hashbrowns, cheese ‘n eggs, USDA Choice hamburgers, country ham, pork chops, and grits. They must be doing something right!
Granted, some of their older locations show the wear and tear of THOUSANDS of people coming thru their door. That's why they're closing older locations and upgrading others.
Want to buy one of their older locations and try your hand at building your own high quality, always sparkling clean Food Empire? Contact them at:

and yet they are consistently at the top of the list for critical violations when reports are compared.
 
They have over 1500 locations, and 1000 of them, that's nearly 2/3 of them, were selected at random for the report. That supports the statistical data. If they had sampled 1 or two percent, maybe one could argue that the sample was too small. But nearly 2/3 of them? That's solid statistical grounds to build a case that they have systematic problems.
 
"Like any other kitchen" you say? I don't think so. The data and comparisons show that they are at the bottom in terms of food safety. These are inspections when they knew ahead of time the exact date and time when the inspection would occur. These aren't "drop in inspections at the height of volume." This would indicate that when they aren't prepared for an inspection, it's worse. AND frankly, a lot of critical violations are not ones that would stick out to the normal eye. If one is actually seeing filth, it's MUCH worse. 
 
I'll pass on the franchise opportunity. According to the data, it's safer to own a Denny's - who had 44% fewer critical violations than Aweful House.  eeechh!

the report is published on a law firms website. The report was furnished by NBC Dateline. Are you suggesting dateline is "ambulance chasing?"
 
BTW - Foodbe me keeps mentioning the WH's in his area. Now, Gilbert is in Tempe/Mesa area. On a quick search and a low sample I saw the March 2010 report for Maracopa County. In that month 1 Waffle House in the county did not have any violations. The one on university ave? I think. So, hopefully, that's your WH.
in the same report, 5 Denny's also had no violations that month.

I lived in the South for over 20 years and have traveled all the states that have WH's and have eaten at a good number of them, (Over 100) and never had or saw a problem with any of them.
STATISTICALLY--- How can that be possible ?????
I also eat and have eaten at many Denny's and have no complaints but find WH just has more Character! Denny's is such a sterile (And I don't mean HD-wise)environment lacking personality and a zip. I also eat at IHOP - very generic. Both have fancy menus with bland, ordinary food.
I'm curious-----How many of you Roadfooders always read the health dept reports before deciding to eat somewhere?

As far as reading health department reports we don't see them very often around this area but in other area's we've lived they were pretty prominently displayed in the local paper. I have looked at them occasionally and decided not to try a place out based on the report.
I have seen a disgustingly dirty Waffle house in South Carolina and moderately dirty ones elsewhere but as a whole I think they try to keep things as clean as possible. On the other hand we have a local diner in my area that is absolutely consistently filthy from the restrooms to the cooks clothing. I've had to quit going there because of the conditions even though the food is pretty good.

when I check out the local health department reports for a couple nearby WH locations, they usually do pretty well.  They rate much better, according to the county, that some of the local Chinese and Mexican places.   And often, they have better scores than the local Cracker Barrel or Denny's.  For breakfast, I'm a WH fan...

so wait........ this report spans a 14 month period, and 100 stores each of the top 10 chains....
if we are going to be "statistically correct" the number of each chain needs to be taken into account, also, the time of day inspections were made, the time of year needs to be taken into account also.....
 
if a dirty kitchen floor falls under "critical violation" how many of those were listed vs salmonella in the eggs ??  just saying...
you should put as much into someone elses statistics  as you can put into your own pocket....... numbers are the easiest thing in the world to manipulate, and in this day and age, you cant trust the publishers, let alone the ground pounders....

but if you want to see a packed house so to say, go to any of them on a weekend after midnight..... a couple of them it takes a 2 hour wait just to get in the door!!

I would be, but the closest one to me is in Toledo, which is 130 or so miles in a direction I pretty much never travel. However, whenever I travel, I always stop at one at least once. I've been to locations all over Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama, and Louisiana, and have never found one to be dirty other than the usual "someone just got up from the table and we haven't had time to bus it" clutter.

I have been to several Waffle Houses, primarily in the Southeast.  I am not a fan of their waffles. but I really like their hash browns, which seem to have become a focal point of their menu. 
As an FYI, there is also "Huddle House", which is a spin-off of Waffle House.  The Huddle House locations do seem cleaner, and I like their food a notch better than WH.  The breakfast menus are very similar, and I like the hash browns there, too. 
 
There are not as many Huddle Houses as WH's, and they are in 19 states, primariy in the southeast with some exceptions.  
For those of you with cleanliness issues with WH, you might want to give Huddle House a try.  They at least "seem" cleaner, as a whole. 
 
I'd hate to see the health reports of some of the Roadfood joints I've been to!

Yes, WH waffles are quite good and made with half & half, but I usually order the eggs & hashbrowns which are always good.  Huddle House is excellent, though, and has a much larger menu.  The old Omelet Shoppe chain was good, but I think all their locations are gone now.

Unless there is a new chain called the Omelette Shoppe, they are not only alive and well, but as recently as three years ago opening new locations. They're good, but ridiculously expensive for what you get. They charge twice as much as any other chain breakfast place I've been to.
 
Edit:
Just looked at their website...apparently it is a new chain. Turns out the one I know here has exactly four locations, all in Michigan. Two in Grand Rapids and two in Traverse City.

Yes, the The Omelet Shoppe was Birmingham, Alabama-based and used the "Omelet" spelling.

The Omelet Shoppe corporate entity is gone but there are some former franchisee's still operating under the name. They're few and far between.

I found 2 or 3 listed around Birmingham, but their phones are disconnected.  However, there's at least one New Orleans Famous Fried Chicken left in Columbia, Tennessee!

There is a "huddle house" section on the Waffle House menu. I really didn't realize there were any stand alone Huddle House restaurants left.

I do like the thin waffles that Waffle House serves. I'm not crazy about the thick ones.

I believe that's the now defunct Toddle House you're referring to on the Waffle House menu.  Huddle House is a fierce competitor of WH.  Joe Rogers, Sr. worked for Toddle House before he left and formed WH.  Interestingly, Toddle House was founded by the father of FedEx founder Fred Smith.  Wow, what history.

There is a Toddle House section on the WH Menu dealing with their Omelet choices only.
