And they shouldn't be cooked to death. Too many restaurants do that.
Have you had polenta? Pretty much the same thing.
Yes, don't like polenta, either.

Well, they have to be doctored up - they need the right mixture of butter, salt and pepper. NEVER SUGAR. Of course, you can also add cheese, shrimp, ham bits, bacon, etc.

I live in a city where you can see one Waffle House from the parking lot of another Waffle House.

I'm not kidding.

Here we go. 0.1 miles/27 seconds apart. WTF
Maybe because Waffle House is popular where you live? I've checked both Waffle Houses on Google Street View and one of them is an older building while the other is a newer building. I think they are suppose to close the older one when they were building a new one. I don't see things happening like that where I live.

So, like potatoes and corn, they are simply a medium for holding salt and butter? Hahaha.

I didn't like the texture of them. My sister is married to an African-American man, and so she tried to introduce me to grits, and then I tried them again years later when our work cafeteria served them. Just didn't do anything for me.

It looks like the older Waffle House has Coca-Cola while the newer one nearby on the same street has Pepsi-Cola.

Well, that's unlikely since Waffle House has an exclusive agreement to market Coke products (as do most restaurant chains).

Virginia never had any Waffle Houses until sometime in the 1990's. I agree that Waffle House is a southern thing. Even though Virginia would be less southern than North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, etc. because there are less Waffle House locations according to the Waffle House website.

Waffle House is tasty... but they are dirty as well which has already been mentioned.

In the Northeastern states, there is no reason AT ALL to seek out Waffle house when you have the tons and tons of Mom & Pop shops with food that is of a completely different standard :-)

I think Waffle House Needs to come to New Jersey. I lived in Fl for 3 yrs and i miss Waffle House. I know people in NJ love IHOP they are booming so why couldnt Waffle house be the same. I mean we have Perkins and IHOP and they both do well.

Waffle House is a decidedly Southern chain, and with the exception of a handful in the Midwest and West, it's not really reasonable to expect many (if any) new locations outside of Dixie anytime soon.
