The staff were rude, speaking to each other in loud voices about unprofessional topics. Our waitress didn't return to the table until we finally asked for the bill. The cooks pants were down BELOW his bottom. Another, annoyed, waitress brought our food, which I had been watching as it sat on the counter by the cook for over 10 minutes!... More

This waffle house is great! The staff are friendly and aim to please. Food is prepared right in front of you. Staff are very personable and enjoy what they are doing. We always stop here when we spend the night in strawberry Plains and look forward to having a home cooked breakfast meal.

We live in Holston Hills, so it's easy to stop by this Waffle House for breakfast! We know the staff by name and always have a "hello" greeting when we enter! The cook knows how I like my BLT and the waitresses always know I want extra pickles. The food is fresh, done the way we like, and we don't... More

Actually, everything was o.k. for an AWFUL HOUSE restaurant, but the new menu and higher prices have reduced my desire to return. Waitress was polite, my sandwich was not served on the wheat bread I had asked for. Worst of all, my Texas Cheesesteak is now a $6 Texas Bacon Lover's Cheesesteak. Regular Cheesesteak no longer appears on the menu.... More

You're on a road trip. Gotta fuel up. Start with a big bowl of Bert's chili and a stack of saltines. Eat that while you wait for three eggs over easy,grits, whole wheat toast and endless coffee. If the grits come in a bowl, dump them on the plate. Either way, slip the eggs over the grits and mush the... More

It would not be a proper trip to the south with out a breakfast-meal at Waffle House. The servers were as they are everywhere - super friendly. The menu is limited. Food is nothing special except for the grits.

I love this place!!!! I take my girlfriend there on special occasions all the time. We are in love. The waiting staff has an amazing redneck atmosphere that you cant find anywhere but a waffle house. I wish everyone would try it sometime.
