If we'd only known...


Black Friday's midnight shopping started with a first ever (at least for me) trip to Waffle House. There was a long conversation on Facebook the other day about Waffle House's scattered, covered and smothered hash browns. I had been filled in on that gastronomical delicacy by my GRANDson. He's only 11 but he's been introduced to Waffle House by his parents, preparing him for a life of many tastes and flavors, people and food! Make no mistake, it's more than just a big breakfast. 

Did you know that Harvard Business School says Waffle House is one of America's top examples of  entrepreneurial achievement? No other chain has a fan club like Waffle House, loyal customers who are greeted with a big "Hello" as they enter, no matter what the time of day or night. 


When we got there around 11, the place was packed. Nearly every booth was taken, even the stools at the bar were occupied. My husband, the world traveller, says the bar has the "choice seats," since you can watch your meal being prepared! The waitress couldn't have been nicer, or more efficient. She had our coffees poured within minutes and our order placed. Everyone was talking about going shopping, there was a camaraderie between us... preparing for the start of Black Friday!

As delicious as Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings was, my waffle with a side of crispy bacon really hit the spot! If you've led a sheltered life like me, give Waffle House a try the next time you're hungry, here's a gander at the menu...

  1. I have a friend who's ex-husband loves Waffle House food and she's told me about the many meals she's eaten at them. So last year we tried one in Tulsa. Not bad, not bad at all.

  4. I haven't been in years! There's one pretty darn close. I just might have to make an effort to re-try it.

  5. I don't believe we have a Waffle House around here. We have a pancake house. But I like Waffles better.

  7. My daughter is a waitress at Waffle House and people are always telling us how they just love going in when she's there, because she makes them feel so welcome. She LOVES working there, but says tips are not like they used to be. Please be generous to your waitresses! Now I want a waffle! :)

  9. I think the 'eating out' gene skipped me. I never get excited about eating out anywhere. I know I am missing some delicious food but I always think I can go home and do that......
