In certain parts of Indiana; Waffle Houses are called "Waffle & Steak" because of a chain of restaurants called "Wafle House" were in the state previously and no agreeable terms for the sale of the "Waffle House" name could be decided on, from what I've heard...

They are pretty good though I admit for quick breakfast dining. It beats having the lame, stale limited menus offered by putrid Dunkin Donuts every half-a-square-mile here in New England.
Wrong actually. Pennsylvania has Waffle Houses...but then again you are right because Pennsylvania is not a Southern state. Also, weren't "Waffle & Steak" and the "Waffle House" basically the same company....if they weren't I know that Waffle House bought them out a LONG time ago. And wrong again actually....Waffle Houses exist as far north as Cleveland...there are five in the metro area....they are starting to become more numerous in the Midwest, in places like Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio. You don't see NEARLY as many as in the South here but you see enough. St. Louis, Kansas City, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and Columbus all have between 10 to 15 Waffle Houses in their metro areas now. And from what I know they likely haven't been here for that long but they are gradually making their way north. Toledo, Ohio has four Waffle Houses. So Waffle Houses are really not that much of a Southern thing anymore, despite the fact that Southern states have TONS more than Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio still.

Urbana, Illinois.

That was an easy one. With all the time saved, I can now work on my "Waffle House is bad for you, mmmmkay" campaign.

It doesn't surprise me that Atlanta would have the most Waffle Houses, given that the Waffle House originated in Georgia. The South tends to have a lot more Waffle Houses than most regions of the U.S. They are starting to become more common here in the lower Midwest, but there's still a long way to go before you start finding a Waffle House at seemingly every exit like you do in the South. Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio are starting to take on a noticeable number of them. Illinois has only two that I know of thus far, but they are going to begin appearing more in there sooner or later. It doesn't really matter to me or not because I don't care for the food at the Waffle House. The only one I ate at was in Tampa and the food was crap
