One More Reason To Eat At Waffle House

Guest post by Ben Carmack

This article from Doug French at Lew Rockwell provides even more reasons for me to eat at Waffle House more often.

I am a fan of greasy spoon, classic American diner food. It's terrible for you, of course, and would make good guys like Michael Pollan, Weston A. Price and Wendell Berry flake out, but it is what it is. Life is short. I figure, eat what you like. 'Specially if it's cheap and the waitress asks, What fer ya, hon?

I like greasy spoons for some of the same reasons I like certain bars. Yeah, I know. 

I don't do this a lot, mind you. One must have limits. I do care about my health. I appreciate the genre.

Waffle House appears to treat its employees well, run its restaurants efficiently and avoid Wall Street malfeasance. Good for them. We should all be so lucky to work for such a company.


  1. I love my own neighborhood Waffle House in nearby New Albany, Indiana. I love the friendly staff. I love the interesting regulars who are always showing up there. Its the one place I know of where I can enjoy leisurely pipe-smoking after my meal.

  2. Waffle House is even more excellent when they have the free meals! WOO HOO!

  3. Robert,

    The link you have provided does not work. Try going back to the original post and trying again. The link does work in the original post.

  4. Thanks, Ben. I think it *was* okay at first. But something obviously happened. It should be okay now.

  5. Hey all I ate with some fellow Portland Classmates Senior year in New albany at the Waffle House and we ate with some clowns. Literally guys in Makeup and Noses and such.
