Good and Inexpensive. Can't be beat.

As always, a perfect inexpensive breakfast. Waffle House has really gone up in my book since they banned smoking. Beats a hotel "continental breakfast" every time! Friendly staff, and you know what you are getting.

I came to this Waffle House for dinner with my wife and we were very pleased. I ordered an omelette and she ordered a scrambled egg plate. We also got a waffle to share. Our server gave us two plates without us needing to ask. The food was cooked quickly and exactly the way I expect a Waffle House to... More

This place to our surprise didn't serve just waffles but a whole range of meals. Kevin was a pleasant server.

Had not had a good waffle in a long time, so I expected a "Waffle House" would have a top notch waffle. NOT. It was thin, not crisp and a disappointment. Artificial butter and syrup. Yecch. Grits were so full of this artificial butter I could not eat them!. I have had better grits in NJ. Service was very good,... More

Our Garmin couldn't find Spudnut donuts, so we backtracked to the Waffle House. My husband said his pecan waffle was pretty good - my cheesey eggs were OK. Servers were quite friendly. Since it's kind of a diner style atmosphere you can see all the folks there seemed to be happy and welcoming.

I was keeping my three grandchildren and we went to Waffle House for breakfast. We sat in the booth for several minutes before we were ever acknowledged and when our order was finally taken, we received it in bits and pieces. The service was really terrible and the staff seemed more interested in talking with each other than waiting on... More

One of the best Waffle House service (Lee) ever. Food was great too. Staff welcomed you as you walk thru the door. Food came out fast as well.

Stopped in here with my husband and son. It was lunchtime so we were very hungry. The server was very friendly and answered all questions very courteously. The food came rather quickly too. I normally leave a 20%-25% tip for real good service but since these employees seemed to go above and beyond I went to thirty. Just want you'll... More
