You know what you're going to get from a Waffle House. Predictable good simple food. Waffles (of course) and much more. You expect to get it reasonably quickly, hot and with friendly service. That's what we got for a lunch - well, of breakfast foods. We can't resist the pecan waffles, add a side order of eggs, maybe the hashbrowns,... More

I have been to this location a few times. As expected with this chain, the food is good greasy goodness..lol The employees are friendly but it is always busy when I go there. I have had takeout the last couple times I have gone. For a Waffle House it is pretty clean and there are some good songs to play... More

The friendliest people work at this Waffle House! They were so delightful to talk to. We sat at the counter and chatted with the staff. One young man was from our home state of NJ. One young woman gave helpful insight to NC State. The food was FANTASTIC! Restaurant was clean and bright! I can't say enough about how wonderful... More

Since our hotel Red Rood Inn Plus did not offer adequate breakfast we came here. Who knew our server was from Newark, NJ that made our day. Food hit the spot & service hometown friendly

If I visited alone, I would not have even tried eating here. As it was, however, we were having trouble finding a breakfast place, so we gave it a shot. There's seating for about 30 people, and every spot was full when we got there. I counted 14 employees behind the counter. 14 employees who apparently had no idea what... More

Had breakfast here, awesome! The food was wonderful with very little wait. The wait staff were attentive to you at all times. Will definitely be going back here. The inside looks to have been remodeled as well as the bathrooms, very clean.

Me and my friends only go there for breakfast. They cook your food EXACTLY how you ordered it. Everyone is nice & friendly who work there. It's recently renovated (Aug. 2015) and always looked nice & clean. I wouldn't sit at the counter because it's so very, very noisy...the dishwasher is right behind the counter and the "clatter" of dishes... More

I reported the motorcycle noise by phone to the management and they refunded my total cost for the room. I think from now on I will check to see if they have any motorcycle things going on before I book a room.
