This is our halfway spot from Houston to Biloxi so we've stopped here many times in the past. We stopped over the Memorial weekend and have absolutely no complaints. I do have a comment on one of the servers, I believe his name was Ray. The dude had us rolling in laughter from his upbeat attitude about having girls, since... More

People waiting at filthy tables while workers stood around argued and ignored customers. Finally walked out with others not served.

The service and the food was amazing but the kitchen was a MESS. There were eggs,toast,crumbs, and other things all over the ground. It was kind of disgusting to look at while I was eating! The food was good but I wouldn't go back unless they clean that restaurant up!

We were ending a long days drive and the Waffle House was near our hotel. Three gals were behind the counter but all ignored us when when we walked in. At the time only six other people were in the restaurant. Eventually someone came to take our order and when our food was delivered our friend's order was incomplete. He... More

I always like the Waffle House. Got to have them hash browns, over easy eggs and a waffle. The BEST!

My first Waffle House experience was in Lafayette on our way to New Orleans. The waitress was very friendly and helpful even if her make-up was a little scary. I had a waffle with bacon & hash browns. The meal was ok but I'd much prefer Denny's.

We were in a rush to eat somewhere so just stopped here and the breakfast was amazing! I get the same thing at every waffle house which is the all-star special. If you havent had it, go try that and the service was so nice. The atmosphere made you fell at home with the loving waitresses. Nice place for breakfast.

The staff were quick and friendly. My order was in quickly and my coffee cup was never empty. The biscuits and gravy were good--the gravy even tasted like sausage gravy and had pepper in it (I have had some bad gravy experiences lately). The waffles were tasty and the eggs were a little too done for over-easy. The hash browns... More
