    It's always possible that they might have mixed sausage patties in. I've never seen it done, however.

      How could a place as good as Waffle House have beans in their chili?


      Chili ingredients depend upon what part of the country in which said chili is cooked. Texas chili is usually beanless, but Waffle House got its start in Georiga, far enough away from the Lone Star State for beans to be acceptable in chili. Had WaHo originated in Cincinatti, their chili would be thin, taste like cinamon and would be served over pasta and covered in shredded cheddar cheese. Come to think of it, Cincinatti chili might taste pretty good on WaHo hash browns...

          in internet terminology, a troll is someone who comes into an established community such as an online discussion forum, and posts inflamatory, rude, repetitive or offensive messages designed intentionally to annoy or antagonize the existing members or disrupt the flow of discussions, including the personal attack of calling others trolls.
          often, trolls assume multiple aliases or sock puppets.


          Correct
          And those who respond to trolls are known as "troll bait"
          "Please do not feed the trolls" is a term meaning don't be so stupid as to give them their sick pleasures.

                    According to Waffle House, their chili has sausage (and beans)in it.

                    From the WH web site:

                    "Twenty years later, Bert's Chili™ is still made to his exacting standards. Each pot of chili is prepared using only the finest ingredients, including chili beans, USDA Choice hamburger, Jimmy Dean sausage, tomato, onions and a special blend of seasonings."

                          Nope, but do get wh hashbrowns to go every once in a while.

                          I always forget how i order them until i look at the menu, loaded with everything except the chili. scattered, tattered, smothered, diced

                          (I know that is all wrong, like I siad I gotta look at the menu)

                          I wish we had a wh closer to us.

                              WH is an interesting place. It is not 21 or the Four Seasons but it is generally a good place to eat. Their hash browns are usually very good.

                                I went to a WH for the first time last weekend - we had a late breakfast at the one in Bonner Springs, KS, on our way to the KC Irish Feat. My wife and I really liked it - we plan to go back. I especially loved the big waffle I got with my eggs.

                                  More info on Waffles.
                                  The modern waffle has its origins in the late Middle Ages. Waffle irons consisted of two metal plates connected by a hinge, with each plate connected to a wooden arm. Some plates had imprinted designs such as a coat-of-arms or landscape, while some had the now-familiar honeycomb/gridiron pattern (there is evidence that in the 14th century only wealthy kitchens would have irons). The iron was placed over a fire and would need to be flipped manually to cook both sides of the waffle.

                                  These irons were used to produce a variety of different flat, unleavened cakes (usually from a mixture of barley and oats, not the white flour used today). Some were rolled into a horn or tube, others were left flat. In many cities, waffles were sold off carts by street vendors. Judging from extant illustrations, these vendors gave people their money's worth, as the waffles in question were about the size of a small pizza, although there was a hidden cost: because of stone grinding methods, there was so much grit in the flour that teeth were often worn to the gum-line by middle age.

                                  According to Alan Hindley's Old French - English Dictionary, the medieval French term for waffle was "gauffre." This became "waffre" in English by at least the 15th century. According to the Gode Cookery Website, vendors of these goods were called "wafferers" in English-speaking places.
                                  Waffle Trivia
                                  The Belgian Waffle was introduced into North America during the 1964 New York World's Fair by its Belgian inventor, Maurice Vermersch. Observing that most Americans didn't know where Brussels actually was, he decided to change the name from "Brussels Waffle" to the "Belgian Waffle".
                                  Waffles in Flanders are often associated with the Flemish comic strip Nero by Marc Sleen. The characters enjoy a waffle feast ("wafelenbak") at the end of nearly each adventure.
                                  Frozen waffles made their convenience food debut in U.S. grocery stores in 1953.
                                  Waffle House is a large chain of franchise restaurants in the U.S.
                                  In Germany and the Nordic countries the waffle is thin, similar to a pancake.
                                  Europe's largest waffle factory is situated in Nuth, The Netherlands, where a variety of waffles made up of two thin waffles with a spread of sugar cane syrup or sometimes maple syrup in between is popular (stroopwafel).
                                  It was the sweet food item chosen to represent Belgium in the Café Europe initiative of the Austrian presidency of the European Union, on Europe Day 2006.
                                  Thomas Jefferson is known for bringing a waffle iron to the U.S. from France in the 1790's, increasing their popularity. Waffle parties were a common form of entertainment at the time.

                                    Mr. Hoffman I thought of you last night, I had to take a client home at 2:30 yesterday morning, she lived in Dayton, OH.

                                    As i was heading back home, I was getting tired, so I stopped at the WH on I-75 exit 32 there north of cincy.

                                    It was 3 something in the morning there were 17 people there eating at that time, I kept looking at the people sitting up on the stools and laffing, thinking one of them was you.

                                    I had a bowl of burt's chili, 3 eggs over easy, sausages and a waffle.

                                    The meal was great as usual and the whole time I was siting there I wanted to ask this guy at the counter his name.

                                      Sounds like you have a good meal. I wasn't there, however. At that time of night I was sound asleep.

Each pot of chili is prepared using only the finest ingredients, including chili beans, USDA Choice hamburger, Jimmy Dean sausage, tomato, onions and a special blend of seasonings."

                                          humph. so, Michael Hoffman, in your opinion does Waffle House sell "chili?"

                                            Waffle House sells chili the way Skyline sells chili. I like them both, I just don't think of either as chili.

                                              No matter what you call it, the WH chili, meat sauce or whatever you call it is very good. I just cannot do beans. It is not cause I do not like them, they just hurt me.

                                                    I am actually going to agree with Michael..

                                                    Skyline and Waffle House are about the same... not really chili, just something...LOL

                                                    My mom makes CHILI and it is great!!!!

                                                        I live near Detroit, so our closest Waffle House for many years was in Lima, Ohio, three hours away. In the past few years, however, they've opened a few WHs in Toledo, a mere hour's drive, so now and then the Hub and I head down for some Waffle House goodness. His parents live in Georgia, so on our road trips down there, we hit as many WHs as we can. We've had a few bad experiences, but the good ones far outweigh them. Must say, when you're dead tired and heading up I-75 in the middle of the night, knowing you've got another six hours or so of driving ahead of you, there's nothing as welcoming as seeing that yellow WH sign and walking inside, getting a friendly greeting, smelling the nummy waffle batter, and having a hot, fresh cup of coffee.
