Waffle Houses have been around a long time, each one of them is basically the same. Known more for breakfast items which are always delicious with quick service. Definitely a traditional diner with diner menu. Good food, fast service, very down home.

I've been going to Waffle House all my life. It used to be a place where your breakfast was always cooked correctly and at a fair price. Those days are over. If you're going to stick me for ten bucks, at least make decent food For about a year now, over multiple visits, it has become evident that this location... More

It's a Waffle House. But when I go, they never faill to bring the food as ordered, with a smile and with speed. The quality of food especially breakfast is excellent. I go when traveling. You know what you are getting at a Waffle House.

Your typical Waffle House with friendly, fast service and delicious food. I love the scrambled eggs with cheese, raisin toast and grits. A great deal at twice the price!

The waitress was pleasant and the food was good.We were there when the drunks started winding down from the partying from the bar across the street. I would hate to have to be a waiter or waitress working this shift.They take it in stride and keep good quality service. Hey if your hungry this place will satisfy the need.

The dining area is small. If you go at a time when other people like to eat (for example Breakfast)...you will have to wait. That doesn't mean don't go, just be patient. It's a great place to get a cup of coffee and CHILL. Put down your phone and watch the controlled chaos that is the Waffle House. The staff... More
