It's National Waffle Week - so let's talk Waffle House!

My name is Food Hussy and I love Waffle House...there I admitted it.

Thus in celebration of National Waffle Week - let's do a review of Waffle House!

First - the actual waffle. Even if it's dinner time or whatever - I have to have a waffle. It's just the way it is. I never make waffles - I mean - I'll toast a freezer one but that's not even the same food group.

I'm not a big fan of the belgian waffles that you can get at IHop - I love the thin sweet waffles of Waffle House. I love the syrup - the stickiness of the silverware - just love it all!

So - if you've been living under a rock - and haven't been to the Waffle - at least go and try one!

I also am a big fan of the breakfast. They have really cheap breakfast combos. On this particular evening I got the All Star - which is: 2 eggs, toast, hash browns or grits, bacon or sausage & biscuits & gravy or waffle.

I'm not a grits fan - so I always choose the hash browns. The Waffle lets you have them smothered (onions), covered (cheese), chunked (ham), diced (tomatoes), peppered (jalapenos), capped (mushrooms) or topped (Bert's chili). I just went for the covered this time - figured with all the other food - that was good.

The food is typically salty - but I love salt. The food is kinda greasy - but I like grease too.

The BF is allergic to eggs so he went straight for the dinner menu. He got a burger with bacon and a side of the hashbrowns. He's a simple guy - not even smothered! He was happy.

Here's the deal - most people will tell you that you should only go to "Awful Waffle" when you're drunk or hung over. I completely disagree. Every couple of months - I love me some Waffle House.

This particular day was after we had moved my beautiful fabulous sister up to Wittenberg in Springfield. After a long day of lifting, hauling and driving - we were hungry. After trips to Target, Aldi and Walmart - we were broke. After the hour and half drive up and the hour and a half drive back - we were tired. Thus - Waffle House was our perfect stop!

Also something noteworthy - I have NEVER had bad service at Waffle House. The servers are always laughing and do a great job. It's truly something I appreciate.
