“A Clean Waffle House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

This Waffle House gets more local diners than travelers. The staff is friendly. The food is prepared quickly. This particular location is much cleaner than the usual Waffle House.

“Steer clear if you're tipsy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

as Marvin Webster from the John Boy and Billy show would say, "Nobody ever plans to go to the Waffle House, it just kinda happens..."

If you've been in America a minute, you realize you don't go to Waffle House for 5-star dining. It's more of the gray area between fast food and a sit down dinner.. or for late night munchies.

Visited after a late event and noticed several police cars marked off majority of parking lot with crime scene tape. This peaked my interest, as I'm not one for eating at a risky location. Found out the off-duty cops help discourage drunks from crashing the restaurant after the bars close (UVA is close by).

Inside, typical waffle house.. food was on par but restaurant itself was somewhat dirty. Coffee was burned and nearly undrinkable.

Tip: If you've been drinking, you shouldn't be driving anyway, but if your DD wants to crash the waffle house after 1:00am it's a bad idea.. the police area serious about keeping everyone safe.

Also, if you want a decent cup o' Joe, steer clear.

“Typical...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

Employees very friendly and generous. Decent coffee. Not my favorite, but not much else around. Average food. Too much butter for me.
