This place is a dump and everything was dirty. From the coffee cup to the silverware. I've eaten in truck stops with better food and service. AVOID

This is the small town breakfast spot you dream of. Old fashioned home style cooking, great service and low prices. The place is always packed on weekend morning but it moves quickly. Everyone is friendly and so nice. You need to try the hashbrown casserole!!!

We frequently visit the friendly Waffle King. Breakfast and Burgers and everything between is always delicious. Owners and staff are very, very friendly and treat patrons like good friends! Always enjoy the specials when available!

Didn't take everyone's order at same time. Part of the food on plate was cold an part hot. An when you can mess up a egg that's pretty bad.
