Better than expected

We hadn't eaten at a Waffle House in a long time. The menu is very "basic breakfast", but the food was very well-prepared and tasty. The service was very friendly, and the place had homey feeling, even for us "northerners" in a southern state.

Great service & watch your food being prepared! Always hot & ready! Variety of choices. Open 24-hours a day. Inexpensive for what you receive.

You're greeted with a friendly "Hello" by one or more of the staff as you enter. Not a huge dining room, but there are booths and a counter with "bar stool" seating. Get ready for some southern cooking. It's always good and filling. A great breakfast spot after spending the night at the nearby Motel 6.

Best waffle house meal we've ever had! Nervous little waitress but fast and attentive. We tip the server and the cook!

Located across from the hotel, we stopped for breakfast on Day 1. Our food came spread out every 5 minutes or so, the eggs were cold and the toast soggy. "peach" waffles are a joke .... the peaches are dehydrated nuggets in the batter (still crispy when served) with some peach-flavored syrup squirted on top. We'll pass next time.

No waiting except on your waitress. Slow service, had to repeat order a couple of times. Waitresses were more interested in the concert they went to last weekend than doing their jobs. Usual tasting food.

This waffle house was not that great. Staff unfriendly, food just okay and ended up paying more than I should have had to! Won't be coming back!
