Waffle House is one of the few places that will always welcome you. Granted, there are a few that I will refuse to step into, but the vast majority of them are fantabulous! Tip: Ask the waitress how her night is going, and tell her shes doing a wonderful job. Its a sure fire way to make sure the service is excellent. I'm at WaHo atleast 3 nights out of the week. I can do my college work at any time, stay for as long as I want, and eat a wonderful whole meal for the same price as a Starbuck's latte. And they don't get mad when I bring a few friends! What more could you ask for?
Pros: inexpensive, friendly staff, diverse crowd
Cons: drunks at 3AM, greasy
