Ain’t nothing wrong with Waffle House

I love Waffle House. Not as much as my friend Patrick, but love it nonetheless.

For those not in know, Waffle House is a 24/7 restaurant chain with more than 2,000 locations across the US. Very popular in the South, Chances are if you’re driving on a highway in the South/Midwest/”lower” East, you’ll see their yellow/black signs from the highway.

“If you get there and the Waffle House is closed? That’s really bad. That’s when you go to work.”

Waffle House has built such a strong reputation for staying open during any type of weather/emergency, that FEMA uses a Waffle House Index to measure the severity of a disaster.

Because the menu is more or less a greasy spoon specializing in eggs and hash browns, getting Yeni to visit has been difficult. Luckily, one late night event left us with no alternatives, and she became a fan quickly. (Eric was very excited to walk her through the menu)

When I was driving back and forth to Michigan (often), the Waffle House became a friendly face on an unfriendly road.

Ain’t nothing wrong with Waffle House. Good food, good price, dependable… and there’s even a jukebox if you’re feeling lucky.

  1. Love the Waffle House too Fred…
    On a very circuitous road trip from San Francisco to New York we saw the first Waffle House when we got far enough East.
    We went in to eat and it was pretty empty.
    Then a big bald biker (with tattoos all over his head) came in and put “She thinks my tractor’s sexy” on the jukebox…
    It was a very special moment 🙂
