Initial Visit: December 30th, 2012
Description: I’ve been here multiple times and never had the waffles. Yet.
My first real visit to a Waffle House was during my trip to Florida in 2012. It was at the tail end of a great night… and with it being Spring Break, it was quite a hopping place with party people everywhere. It was such a good time that I didn’t get photos while there. So a bunch of us ended up visiting one later that year on a trip to St. Louis.
This visit was at the end of a long day exploring around St. Louis. We were hungry, slightly tired and ready for a break from driving and sightseeing. If I remember right, I had been the only to try a Waffle House, so my friends were in for a treat.
We stopped around 10pm and it was slow. Staff was quick to seat us and get our drinks. While everyone deliberated on what to order, I went for what I had in Panama City Beach. The TEXAS BACON LOVERS BLT! So we all ordered food and waited.
If you have ever been to a Waffle House, you’ll know the food comes out quick and the prices are cheap, cheap, cheap! This visit was no exception. They also shout orders at the chefs, which enhances the experience. The Texas BLT was just as good as I hazily remembered. Ying loved the bacon so much (can’t blame her) that she ordered a bunch to go. Everyone else enjoyed their meal, too.
Since this visit, I have been back to another Waffle House and it was just as good. People I’ve talked to either love or hate Waffle House, so you may not share the same praise I have for the place. But it is my favorite fast food diner chain.
