This is one of the very small Waffle Houses that has waiting because of limited seating. It is very loud but the food and service is great. They have late night security police officers there. Never had any trouble when we were there late night.

Ordered a waffle. It wasn't anything special, but it was good. It was exactly what I thought. Coffee was really good.

Their signature breakfast meal is more than I could eat for less than $10 and it was all very good. Definately not fancy but good food, good service and a good value for your money.

I was excited to see it within walking distance of my hotel - and looked forward to a giant breakfast - only to discover it is closed for renovations.

Local hotel's "free" breakfast was a bust so came here. After standing in line for 20 minutes for a waffle at hotel, we had a huge hot breakfast in less than 5. Staff friendly.

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 "

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...
