Food writer Josh Ozersky (pictured) says Waffle House is the great American restaurant in a report at the link below.
Because, he says, Waffle House is the Great American Restaurant.
Surely they were tongue-in-cheek comments.
He had to be jesting unless most of the 1,600 Waffle House restaurants are significantly better than the one that recently went belly up here in Loveland, Colorado.
The cost of a breakfast meal at our short-lived Waffle House was about the same as a comparable meal at our Perkins, IHOP and Village Inn restaurants.
However, at our local Perkins, IHOP and Village Inn restaurants patrons sit in roomy padded booths in a much more spacious and inviting environment.
The vast majority of Subway sandwiches are carry-out, probably because of the hard bench seats.
After getting burnt waffles a couple of times we gave up on our local Waffle House. They apologized each time and gave us good waffles but by that time the eggs were cold.
The Waffle House restaurant arrived here shortly after Krispy Kreme Doughnuts came to Northern Colorado. It was like we were being invaded by the South. Left us wondering when we would see Bubba's Used Cars.
Waffle House is gone but Krispy Kreme (yum) is still here and Bubba's Used Cars never did show.
