Worth the Trip Just to See the Circus

We came fairly early.on a Saturday morning. The interaction between the cook and crew was a real comedy show. Plus the street folk were out and about and added some great character to the mix. We had the typical, always good, breakfast. We had a blast with the "ambidance "

what a dirty place, servers are awful, do not wash there hands after doing anything. Do not fill your coffee cup stand around and talk, place needs to be cleaned, better yet shut it down, manager looks out the back door once in a while, while on his cell phone, people were walking out and one of the servers said...

We had breakfast here and thought the food was good. Not fancy or special, but great for the "morning after". The place was old but reasonable clean. The service was good and the price is average. Great place to go for a maintenance breakfast, but dont expect to be special.

My T-bone steak and eggs and grilled chicken is the best at the waffle house. The staff at night was very customer friendly and service was excellent.

Terrible place to eat. It's dirty and very loud. The personal in the kitchen are throwing with plates and pans. You can eat from the floor so much food is laying there. Coffee is terrible

We ate at the waffle house 7/25 for breakfast. The place is unbelievably dirty!! Broken dishes under th kitchen counter, food partials on the walls, sticky floor. Just gross!! They need to close for a weekend and clean that place!! Plus one of the waitresses took food of a patrons plate with her bare hands. DIRTY!!

Was staying at hotel across the street and headed here for breakfast. Unfortunately the temperature in the restaurant was too low and our waffles came out to us cold (butter wouldn't even melt). Servers were friendly but not impressed with the food.

A typical Waffle House. Good breakfast and service. Either you like Waffle House or you don't. I don't eat at them often because I don't live near one. But I'll stop in when I have a chance.
