To be perfectly honest...it was because of racism, pure and simple.

Not tall enough to reach the counter to order and no one would get you a stool?

The one Waffle House I ever went in to was gross.  Never been to another one.  Always look for Cracker Barrel.

Cracker Barrel in NJ sucks. I would advise against it.

Waffle House coffee at 3am when you are driving cross country is great. Beyond that I wouldn’t really know.
Insert witty comment here.

This seems another dumb thing in a year already filled to the brim with dumb things.

Good gravy.

Thank you ‘Wing. I would feel worse about it if the food was beloved but you guys don’t really sound too enthusiastic. So f’em.

Hey, let's step away from the thing we're known for and hop into a very crowded pool where we have no brand recognition! This plan can't possibly fail!

Actually I love Waffle House, and I always have (though as noted the cleanliness varies. Largely due to the clientele, which tends to be outdoor-work guys on the road.) One of the few benefits of my first job out of college, was that it had a WH next door where we could get waffles and ham for a waffle-ham sandwich every night!  :smitten:

Naturally, Cracker Barrel is superior in every way. Arguably IHOP, too.

Agreed. I don't understand that, but WH employees tend to be on the rougher end of the social scale so maybe that explains it.  >:(

For some folks, being in the south means grits for breakfast.
Maybe IHOP should have been more inclusive and changed their name to International House of Grits?
IHOG?

If it took off, the competition would be intense.  A new firm could arise, the Universal House of Grits.
The ad campaigns could tout the advantage of IHOG versus UHOG.

I've lived south of the Mason-Dixon Line for probably 90% of my life and I've never had to deal with grits. Maybe once my grandmother made it and I recall thinking, "eh, what's the big deal?"

Now, my grandmother...hoo boy did she LOVE grits.
