My husband and I usually eat at Waffle House in Easley. They have a very good breakfast for $5. Includes eggs, large order of hashbrowns, toast, and your drink. I always ask for scrambled with cheese, raisin toast and a single order of hashbrowns because the large order is to much for me to eat. But since we live in... More

Many years ago, this was an ok place to eat but now it's just horrible. It looks and smells very unsanitary. Our order was wrong, the table was sticky, and the food was insanely greasy.Good luck getting a refill much less fresh coffee.

I love getting my breakfast here. I like a special type of grilled cheese w/mayo and tomato and these ladies are always willing to fix it right up for me! The Sausage & Cheese Omelet is awesome too and the gravy is delicious. Always very friendly staff

My husband, son, and I ate there yesterday for breakfast. All the tables were dirty when we came in and no one offered to clean us one so I ended up wiping it down myself. We weren't offered silverware, I had to ask for it after our food had been served. We also weren't offered refills of our drinks. After... More

The restaurant was not very clean, and (IMHO) the waffles are not very good. But it is sort of the only game in town for breakfast with waffles. We don't plan to go back, but if the reviews get better we might chance it.

The food was so so. Looks like most of the stuff they use was prepackaged, frozen items instead of fresh. The person I was with got a slightly overcooked waffle. It seems like more of a social hangout for the older locals, then it is a restaurant for someone looking for a good place to eat. Also noticed a number... More

If you find yourself driving into the outskirts of Pickins, S.C. on Hwy 8, and are looking to experience the true, down home, down to earth flavor of piedmont South Carolina, this is the place. It was late morning, almost noon. When we walked in the door, every head turned to look at us. Conversation stopped. The cook walked over... More

Not only is the food sub-par but we waited 45 minutes to just get eggs and French toast. The "cook" only made each order after the order prior was cooked. There were only 4 tables of customers. Also, not clean. Very disappointing.

I have eaten here a few times and it was terrible. I was hoping it might get better but it did not. I know our little town has very few choices late at night. Going hungry is a better option.
