Hi Hon!

Thank goodness for restaurants that are open late.... or ones that never close.  This morning, my son asked if I wanted to go out to breakfast (actually it was brunch time).  I'm always good to go for breakfast foods.  Bagel place that transports you right into Brooklyn, NY with the accents of  everyone on staff?  No, a little to far to go today.  Plus, they close at 2pm.  IHOP (Also known as International House of Pancakes)? Let me think.... I thought of Waffle House as they do make delicious hash brown potatoes and waffles.  I've been eating there since I was a kid.  There are many who have never been there, yet, one can't argue the freshness of the food.  It is made to order and I think it's fun to hear the old "deli style" lingo being shouted to the cook!  I usually have my standard two eggs over easy, hash browns: scattered, smothered, and covered, and coffee.  My sons had a hearty appetite this morning each finishing eggs, grits, waffle, bacon, sausage, and hash browns.

Waffle House was the place to go when there wasn't any other place open during the middle of the night.  It's the place where coffee doesn't cost $4.00 a cup and they still give FREE refills!  I know people that aren't from here who claim they would never step foot in a Waffle House.  I say, "let them be".  That's just one more pecan waffle in the works for me.

There are the jokes that abound about this restaurant, but when it comes down to it, our breakfast arrived within 10 minutes, nice, hot, and cooked just the way it was yelled to the short order cook.  The only disappointment today was that I didn't get called "hon".  That's always been a "pet peeve" of mine anyway, but it's tradition at the Waffle House to be called "hon", "sugah", or "darlin"......Oh well, I did get a "thank you m'am" from someone who had a northern accent!  I will return!!
