It's always exciting when a new restaurant opens in your neighborhood - the first signs of construction - the anticipation of what will it be - then when you recognize the building - you exclaim - A WAFFLE HOUSE!!!!! Well - at least in this case - that's what I did.
The Waffle House just opened on Colerain down the road from Northgate Mall. I was pretty stoked - I actually like it - although I do jokingly refer to it as Awful Waffle - but that's mainly the Covington version.
I love watching a restaurant line go - it's just amazing to me watching the process and I have to say - they have this thing down to science. I have no idea how they remember all the orders as quick as they come in. They have a couple sets of staff that rotate every 20 minutes or so.
Their hash browns can come plain - but you can also jazz them up! Here's the chart of hash brown magic:
Smothered - Sauteed Onions
Covered - Melted Cheese
Chunked - Grilled Hickory Smoked Ham
Diced - Grilled Tomatoes
Peppered - Spicy Jalapeno Peppers
Capped - Grilled Button Mushrooms
Topped - Bert's Chili
Country - Sausage Gravy
Why Should You Go? Well - going to a new Waffle House is a different experience than one with 30 years of smoke and grease on the walls. I kept begging Larry to take me - and I'm glad he did. I like their breakfast and think it's a pretty good deal.
