good food, great value...fun place to 'people watch'

Atmosphere a bit loud and food not the most 'healthy' but tastes good and inexpensive. Waiters/waitresses/cooks are cheerful and seem to enjoy working there!

Waffles were Waffles and at 2:00am pretty good. Our waitress... More

We ate at Waffle House after staying in a nearby hotel. Our food was good and our waitress was nice, but the restaurant was dirty. The floor was sticky and visibly dirty. The kitchen floor area was dirty as well, with trash that had fallen and had not been picked up. I understand that it has a diner atmosphere and... More

Fast service and decent food for the price. Limited menu with mostly breakfast choices. The service was extremely friendly and food arrived quickly.

Small and loud! The food was cold and we had to ask for coffee refills. We were given a small menu, so we thought they did not offer omelets or blueberry waffles, but they did and laughed about it after someone next to us got a larger menu. They said you got the wrong waitress!

Rather than pay for breakfast in a nearby hotel, we came to Waffle House, and got a great welcome. The place doesn't pretend to be a fancy establishment, but we enjoyed our waffles and hash browns and the friendly staff, not to mention paying under half what we would have paid in the hotel. The best recommendation is that we... More

I went to Waffle House in Covington last night for dinner and I was shocked. The place was clean and smoke free. It was a nice change! I only go to Waffle House once or twice a year but I may be going back more.
