I've heard people rave about Waffle House for years, but I've never had the opportunity to eat at one before yesterday. Honestly, I'm not quite sure what the hype is about. I wouldn't go so far as to call it disgusting, but it ranks somewhere between hospital food and the flavorless, pre-packaged sandwiches that you get from a vending machine at a rest stop.
The hash browns were especially disappointing - kind of like burnt, shredded cardboard. I would have traded them for a McDonalds hash brown without a second thought. They looked good on the menu though when I saw them. You could even get them covered with cheese for 50 cents extra. See for yourself.
