Waffle House is one of my favorite places to throw down whenever I need a huge stack of waffles, hasbrowns, and a slab of bacon. I like the atmosphere. It's so folksy. Unfortunately I've only been there once in my entire life in Pennsylvania. But it was an awesome experience and I look forward to going back. I live in Iowa and we have no Waffle Houses. I'm not sure why. People love their chains in the Des Moines area, and it would be successful. I recently went to Kansas City for work several times last week and it seemed like they had a Waffle House at every exit. My stupid co-workers didn't want to stop, so I had to settle for lame fast food instead. One of these days I will return and get my fill, and it's not going to be pretty.

I'd be in favor of a Waffle House here in S. NJ (but only if it replaces a similar national chain establishment and doesn't build on previously open land.) There are some locations in PA and DE. I've seen signs for Waffle House in the highway in DE. I ate at one last year when I was in South Carolina.

Ahhhh, Waffle House...it will bring out the country or redneck in even the most genteel patron...especially at 4 am.

The last time I went to a Waffle House was in Arkansas. I had my six year old granddaughter with me - we were on a little roadtrip. The server brought her one of the chef hats with her meal and she put it on and grinned from ear to ear the entire time she was eating her chocolate waffle with ice cream on it. Breakfast of champions!

She wore that hat the entire day!

Love me some Waffle House!

There are now 69 Waffle House restaurants in the Mid-Atlantic states (NY, NJ, PA, DE, MD, WV, VA, DC), which seems strange to me as Waffle House has always been a Southern/Midwestern chain. Go to wafflehouse.com and put a Mid-Atlantic address in and you will see there's at least one within 100 miles. Waffle House has been expanding across the country in the past few years.

Michigan is still Waffle House-free. . It's almost a source of pride for me at this point. We will stick to our local breakfast handouts, thank you very much.

The first time I ever ate at a Waffle House was while driving to Florida. It was Christmas day and we were somewhere in Georgia (or maybe SC?) and it was the only place open. It loved it. Nothing fancy at all. But inexpensive, good, quick food. I didn't care for the grits, but everything else was really good. I'm glad to see them expanding into the NE.

Yeah I think Waffle House is mostly a southern thing. Of the 69 in states you listed, 2/3 of those are in Virginia (a southern state) and zero are in NY or NJ. Just a few in each MD, DE, and PA.

There are no Waffle Houses in NJ at all. Not sure about other states you mentioned.
