    That's what I'm craving right now.

    #3 2 years ago

    LOL! A year ago, I'd never heard of them. Last April I drove to Springfield Missouri and saw one in Broken Arrow Oklahoma and one in Springfield on the same day.
    Looks like the closest one to you is in Phoenix. If you leave now, you might get there before the lunch rush.
    ... or, you could just go to Norms on Euclid.

    Go to Roscoes chicken and waffles for brunch in Long Beach. They are much better.

    Or he could go to the one in Anaheim (2110 South Harbor Blvd.)

    Also known as Awful Waffle.

    #7 2 years ago

    Why or why can't there be one closer to Chicago (closest is 173 miles)?

    My two sons and I love it. Must be a guy thing. My daughter and wife won't even go in. They sit in the car and wait.

    #8 2 years ago

    Their hash browns and buttermilk biscuits are awesome! Waffles, oddly enough are just OK.

    #9 2 years ago

    Mine is less than a mile from me.

    #10 2 years ago

    MMMMMM, Gotta go with:
    Double Covered and peppered, chunked and topped

    #11 2 years ago

    Fortunately, way, far, away!

    Recently had a business trip East. We had two places right around the corner from the hotel where we could do breakfast. After hitting Cracker Barrel a few times, one of us wanted to try Waffle house. I had only been to one once, about 30 years ago, so I figured we'd give it a try. Needless to say, the next morning, we were back at Cracker Barrel!

    #12 2 years ago

    Remember, you don't want to eat anywhere where your feet stick to floor!

    #13 2 years ago

    I had one a mile away from my work a few years back. I would go there for lunch at least once or twice a week. The ladies knew my order as soon as I walked in. Double Cheeseburger and a side of hashbrowns peppered (jalapeno). Their food is amazing and the staff there were the nicest bunch. I would sit at the diner bar and listen to all of their problems while I chowed down on those greasy burgers. Good times.

    Man I could live at Cracker Barrel!

    #15 2 years ago

    It's a great place to walk out with the flu.

    #16 2 years ago

    Waffle house is the bomb! Rest of you all:

    #17 2 years ago

    We don't have them in Wi. When I took the family to Disney some years back we ate breakfast there every morning. Since then I have heard people talk about how horrible it is. Ignorance is bliss I guess. Seemed like a decent place at a good price. I've still never had chicken and waffles but wouldn't mind trying it. The sweet and savory combination is probably nice together.

    #18 2 years ago

    Waffle House is awesome. It varies by location though... there's one by my house that's amazing but the one a few miles down the road is iffy. Just depends on how it's managed.

    #19 2 years ago

    Nothing beats eating at Waffle House at 2am!

    #20 2 years ago

    I like the Atmosphere of Waffle House. Closest ones are in Toledo, Ohio so an hour drive for me. Fortunately, I travel a lot so I get near them often. Only places I go that don't have them are the Pacific Northwest and California.

    I like how some of them in Arizona have Southwest architecture.

    The nickname I've always heard is "Awful House".

    Pics from a recent visit to one on my way to Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix.

    I love Waffle House and its so cheap to eat there.I've only seen them in the south though.Just ate at one between Branson ,Missouri and St Louis.YUM.

    #22 2 years ago

    Went to law school in ATL and fell in love with WH as a poor law student. Probably ate there daily. I'm 50 now and have no business eating that calorically-dense crap now, but it remains a guilty pleasure. Hash browns, scattered, smothered, topped and chunked, double order. One complaint: no butter in the house. It's all margarine. Cheaper and doesn't taste half as good.

    Also, cold syrup. Wish they would warm it like Boob Evans/Owen’s. Scratch that, all the Owen’s are now gone...

    2nd only to Taco Bell

    #25 2 years ago

    Being from the south, waffle house has been a part of my life for a long time, especially in college.

    Some of the craziest shit I've ever seen has been between 2-3am at a waffle house. We still eat there, they always are consistent and have quick service. They are also the only place that is open after a hurricane.

    Quoted from Electrocute:

    2nd only to Taco Bell

    Taco bell is pretty awesome at 2am.

    #26 2 years ago

    Perhaps Del Taco fills our So Cal late night munchery needs?

    Warm syrup on request. You have to know. Pecan waffle is great. It’s breakfast lighten up Francis.

    #28 2 years ago

    After a long night out (5am) we sometimes stop at the one on the way home. For most people there it's morning and they can tell we haven't been home yet.

    Ham and cheese omelette with hash browns. Mmm.

    Del Taco 100X over Taco Bell!

    #30 2 years ago
    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    Del Taco 100X over Taco Bell!

    Del Taco came to Dallas, opened like 3 locations, and closed them a year or so later. I. Am. FURIOUS.

    Waffle House? It's a half mile from my house. Like...walking distance, but twice as far as IHOP.

    I had a Del Taco near my home (Originally a Naugles) for many years. Then it became yet ANOTHER Starschmucks.
    Other new locations have opened in the area, but none as close as that one was.

    #32 2 years ago

    I don’t recall seeing any waffle houses, but I think there are a few Del Tacos in southeastern Michigan, which seems very far from where I’ve usually seen them in SoCal. Saw one yesterday on Middlebelt in Livonia if I remember right.

    Here's one I heard awhile back:

    Q: What has eight legs and twelve teeth?

    Yep, there are six or seven in the. Detroit area....

    #35 2 years ago

    On my two drives across the country, the last one over ten years ago, I discovered the wonders of Waffle House.

    Although they keep trying to make Dennys better, I'll be damned if I don't know why there is no Waffle House in So Cal.

    #36 2 years ago

    I've ate at one in New Orleans and Galveston,Texas and they were both good.For me and my wife it's only 10 bucks.I usually give the waitress a 40% tip.

    #37 2 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    That's what I'm craving right now.

    Be sure and check the Yelp reviews first.

    Sounds better if you say eight legs, instead of eight feet.

    #39 2 years ago
    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    Del Taco 100X over Taco Bell!

    This is so true. Real cheddar cheese and those crinkle cut fries. I'm surprised anybody around here eats at Taco Bell with so many Del Tacos available.

    #40 2 years ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    Be sure and check the Yelp reviews first.
    LTG : )

    Good idea! We don't have a Waffle House but this place recently opened about a mile from here. It's always packed. Maybe I'll go get some eggs benedict and call it a day.

    Black Bear Diner breakfast 2 (resized).jpg

    #41 2 years ago

    Yeah, Black Bear Diners are great places to eat. Quite a few in Utah and a few in Reno.

    #42 2 years ago
    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    Charlie Sheen may disagree with that opinion.

    #43 2 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    keep trying to make Dennys

    That's actually the closest to my house. Two blocks away. (Yeah, I kind of love living where I do. So utterly convenient. Just wish my actual place wasn't such a craphole!)

    #44 2 years ago
    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Charlie Sheen may disagree with that opinion.

    Taco Bell's food almost seems fake compared to Del Taco.

    #45 2 years ago

    They had/have del tacos in Houston in the 80's and had these taco shells that are fried and light and crispy. Forget what the we're called but man they were good.

    They have hot dog places there called James Coney Island. They are awesome too. That's when I was young and thin and would get 6 or 7 hot dogs for lunch.

    #46 2 years ago

    If I want to eat from a greasy spoon, I go to Steak N Shake. I believe they are only in the south. Serve up great smash burgers as well.

    #47 2 years ago

    The closest Waffle House to here is in Fort Collins Colorado. One border, and a more than 14 hour drive one way, for waffles is too far.

    #48 2 years ago
    Quoted from Electrocute:

    Steak and shakes are ok but they're like cherry Sprite to me. They are great but get old fast. They do have great fries.

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    That's the real beauty of the waffle house.

    I miss the late night adventures of my past

    #50 2 years ago
    Quoted from jhanley:

    Yeah, Black Bear Diners are great places to eat.

    We've got several Dennys, a couple hit or miss IHOPs, Norms, maybe a Cocos or two, but no more Sambos, Carrows, Bob's Big Boy, or Howard Johnsons, and no Waffle House, so Black Bear it is!
