Hootie and the Blowfish like Waffle House...they named their album of cover songs "Scattered Smothered and Covered" after the hashbrowns...

The Waffle Houses here in the Scranton area are nice and clean. They are pretty much brand new...built within the last 2 years.

Mmm, love their hashbrowns. Haven't been to a WH since we drove cross-country to move from NV to FL. We have one within 25 miles, but we always seem to go to Cracker Barrel instead.

Funny story about Waffle House....about 10 or so years ago DH and I spent a week in Kissimmee. We ate the same thing for breakfast (at the same Waffle House) every day of our stay. Nevertheless, every day the amount of the bill was different. After the third day it was like a guessing game for us, wondering how much the bill would be!

The hash browns rock, but their scrambled eggs are also delish!! And please don't forget the grits! I spent a summer in Pittsburgh and found myself at Denny's a few times, and was startled to see no grits on the menu. Now I know that it's a Southern food, but I've just learned to expect to see it on the menu. Cheese grits are a whole other elevation above regular grits, but grits with butter and a little salt and pepper are heaven. If you've never tried it, don't knock it! The thought of Cream of Wheat with sugar makes me want to gag, but I am a Georgia native.

You guys are making me hungry. Waffle House's pecan waffles are to die for.

Went to Waffle House once and it was good and I agree with the waitress part-Enjoy.

Bojangles-never went.

I've never been to either. It's just never been something that I've been inclined to try.

I absolutely cannot imagine anyone driving 35 min out of their way for either place!!! Most of the Waffle Houses I have been to have 'maybe' 8 tables and there are so many of them right off the highway (although not sure about MD). Bojangles is just another fast food chicken place.

There is nothing wrong with either one, if it is right there and you want chix or breakfast now - but never would I waste gas go that far out of my way for what I think is just fast food.

I like my hashbrowns smothered and covered!!

I honestly prefer Popeyes chicken to Bojangles. Bojangles is like getting grade C chicken instead of grade A. And the grease is a bit too much.

I live in NC- heart of Bojangles country!

BoJO's is worth a stop, waffle house is not (IHOP is better, imo)
