I have eaten at Waffle Houses from here to there and always got prompt, courteous, and efficient service. The food is always good and plenty of it.
This particular Waffle House is a stone's throw from the hi-rise Holiday Inn so that you will know the one I am speaking of. It's to the north from the hi-rise Meridian, MS Holiday Inn.
Went there on a Saturday morning recently while staying at the nearby Holiday Inn. They were busy. Only one booth was empty when I got there. The entire counter was empty of patrons though. Being by myself, I sat at the counter.
A grumpy waitress finally took my order. I then sat there thirty minutes watching the staff scurry around under the Hitler-like orders being barked at them by the manager.
I saw folks that came in after me getting served. One had come in and sat down at the counter near me AFTER I came in, but had already been served. Seems he was flirting with one of the female wait staff persons. Maybe flirting with the wait staff is the way to get served promptly, I don't know.
I said nothing just wanting to see how long this circus would go on. As mentioned, I sat there for 30 minutes. I finally got up and left out of disgust.
The Waffle House corporate people need to pay a clandestine visit to this particular property and watch the show. Then they need to fire the manager, and most of the staff. They need to start over from square one with this Waffle House. I will never, ever stop at this one again!
