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.
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.
