We stopped in for a late dinner and as always, Waffle house does not disappoint. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves, which is a rarity. Hash browns and waffles were on point, as usual! Went a different route and ordered a chicken breast to...More

We do not have a waffle house where we lived and thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity of good food, good service and friendly chat with the waitress. Places like this are too far and in between.

I've been to the Waffle House in Georgia for a great breakfast. When we found one in Arizona, we had to go. Great breakfasts, coffee, service; only complaint: too much food. Need to go back for their dinners one of these days
