    ** Anyone who hasn't been down south doesn't know anything about Waffle House, tiny little joints found at every Interstate exit (seemingly). Clean, small, counter sitting, few booths, mostly breakfast food, their ham and cheese omelet and hash browns "smothered" (with onions), "covered" (cheese) and "capped" (mushrooms) is a bit of heaven available only in the south.
    The Waffle House franchises in your neck of the woods must be a lot nicer than the ones I remember from Georgia and Louisiana. Those counters were usually caked with grease and calcified ketchup. I always seemed to lose some leg hair to the duct tape and the syrup on the seats. The rest rooms had a nauseating sewer/vomit smell that would trail all the way out to the parking lot.

    Despite the pervasive health code violations, I spent a lot of time in Waffle House over the years. It was a great place to stop after the bars closed down. Those roasted pecan waffles were amazing.

      They must have come a long long way in terms of commitment to cleanliness. When I walk into any of the ones around here, they are near perfect. We took my mother to one last week, and she is quite the picky one, and she loved it.

      My daughter loves her Texas egg sandwich, cheese/bacon, and smothered and covered.

      As long as I don't get one more than 4x a year, I love the ham and cheese omelet and a double order of smothered, covered and capped.

      Hardees Mushroom and Swiss is the best fast food burger out there IMO

        Piggy backing off of this old post...

        Have you found regional differences in national chain menus?
        When I was a kid we'd often vacation in Maryland and sometimes Virginia and the Wendy's there had "chili chips and cheese" on their menu (tortilla chips, melted cheese, and chili). I don't think we've ever seen it on a Wendy's menu outside of that area. It's something my parents and I still make occasionally for a quick dinner, my boys even gave it a try and enjoyed it tonight so that made me wonder if others have found it or other menu items they haven't seen elsewhere.
