I think Waffle House is good. Despite their bad reputation as a dirty, dive diner type of place. Everytime I've eaten there the food has been good. Hot, fresh and delicious. Their bacon game be on point with an american cheese omlette and hash brown.. mmmm im hungry now.

I too like the food at Waffle House more than a few other similar chains. I really could go for an all star special right now.

We don't need a waffle house in Los Angeles. We already have a nice chain called Roscoes Chicken and Waffles

Yea I think there is a definite regional bias behind some of these comments. While Waffle House is a love it or hate it kind of thing I would be wiling to bet that most of these negative posts are from folks who look down on the South to begin with. Your right too, up North they do put silly trendy names on ole greasy spoons to make em look special. "Eggz", I loved that

Looked this Roscoes, for some reason I have heard of it. From what I found it sounds like its just an LA thing. I found no locations in other parts of California or the West Coast. The menu not really like Waffle House nor is the atmosphere. It really may be more comparable to an IHOP. It does look like a good place however, if I am ever in California maybe Ill grab a bite to eat there. The last time I was in LA I ate at another chain and got really sick. When I think of LA I think of food poisoning, so Ill be looking for a better experience next time.

Sometime many years ago, I was in Atlanta for business. Fresh from the West Coast, I was eating up all this good ole' southern charm, soul food, and family run diners. I noticed these yellow signs beckoning me to 'Waffle House.' I want to go so bad, to me this restaurant represented everything about the South: cheap, fatty food, and community atmosphere. And when I found it was originally founded in Georgia? Oh man, I was set!

Except none of my business associates wanted to go with me. They told me the food is bad, and they'd take me to better restaurants. So one night I snuck in myself, and .... Well, nothing special happened.

Fastforward to today, I live in Miami. I see plenty of Waffle Houses here and there around Florida. Never ate in one, the food just isn't that special to me.

Everything about the South = Cheap, fatty food. Credibility = 0.
