The Yellow Sign

What is it with men and Waffle Houses? I have only experienced the same type of excitement while on the highway after seeing a sign for Premium Outlets 5 miles ahead.

Their mouths where already watering before we were even seated.

When it came time to order hashbrowns JCW's mind was racing...this may have been a harder decision then where he was going to attend business school.

After deliberating he went with COVERED, CHUNKED and TOPPED. How do you order your hashbrowns? I am slightly embarrassed to admit I go plain jane.

Waffle House AND Cracker Barrel have the same Pavlovian response in guys. It is completely lost on me cuz both places make me wanna gag. I take that back, I can on occasion be talked into Cracker Barrel cuz of the candy selection by the hostess stand and the hard to find Bits o' Honey...XXOO

I love WAFFLE HOUSE! Once a week I treat myself to an Egg/Cheese on Wheat Toast sandwich. Much better than MD or BK could ever produce.

Oh my gosh, my Hubby is OBSESSED with Waffle House. A trait he is happily passing on to our son. He says it's because you can find one in any city near a highway. At least there is a very clean one close by our house.

I eat their pecan waffles at the location in Smyrna De.

Waffles are heaven on a plate, as far as I'm concerned. I can leave fancy fruit-smothered Belgian waffles to those that loves 'em, but there is nothing better than a plate of old-fashioned Waffle House waffles smothered with butter and maple syrup for me. Mmmmm!

JMW said...

I know! My husband keeps saying we need to take the kids to Waffle House because they need to have that experience - all of that artery-clogging goodness on a plate! Although, I'll admit, given the right mood, it can be pretty darn tasty! :)

Annie said...

Oh my gosh - that is hilarious! I don't think I've eaten at a Waffle House since I heard their santitation grade is one of the worst in the nation. Eeks!

Only been to Waffle House once, while in Florida. My husband is the same way with IHOP. I love their International Passport breakfast, esp. their Sweedish crepes --- YUM!!!

The outlet comment is too funny and so true!

Wow! That's a heart attack waiting to happen! More fiber less fat:-)

Dex said...

I do enjoy waffles however Annie's comment reminded me of a bit from comedian Jim Gaffigan on Waffle House http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qz1cfwFmv1w

When I lived in Georgia, there were Waffle Houses on what seemed like every corner, and I can't believe I never ate there!

Buckhead Belle said...

Oh, this is too funny! Boys love Waffle House while traveling... and for me, there is nothing like seeing an outlet sign! Haha.

ps: I like my hashbrowns with just cheese.

I love it - Barbour jackets in Waffle House!!! Hysterical!!!

A Big Little Life said...

This is so funny! Guys really do love some waffle house. I like their omelets

QueenBeeSwain said...

so so so so so true about boys and the Waffle House- the happiest I usually ever see my lightweight males is when we're in Dixie and the next weigh-in is faaaaaaaaaaar off in the future and we get to pull into a Waffle House!

xoox

I'm from Georgia, and now I live in South Carolina. There really is a WaHo on every corner, but don't hate. Deep down, every one of you knows that that you secretly love it's greasy goodness! I take my hashbrowns covered :)

James said...

It's the "forbidden fruit" syndrome. You know it isn't good for you, but man is it good.

I'm not really sure what it says about me and if I care, but I LOVE Waffle House. Bacon Egg and Cheese Sandwich with Hash Browns Smothered and Covered is my usual order. I ate it much more in college when I needed so soak up a little excess alcohol. The closest one to me now is an hour. I guess South Floridians don't like it very much, yet they will eat IHOP and Denny's which I find tasteless.

“WAHO”...love that!

Alice, Cracker Barrel is another fav...the candy selection alone is enough to make you want to do a u turn!

Dex, I am off to watch the video...

Happy Friday all! xx

Preppy and Proud of it! said...

Wow, here in Norther California we don't have the Waffle House but if we did I think my boys (all three) would love it! I'm pretty plain jane too when it comes to hash browns

ROS said...

I must admit, every once in a while I love a good Waffle House. I stick with waffles though, no hash browns for me! I just have to make sure to use about a gallon of hand sanitizer afterwards!

Donna said...

I'm with you on the Premium Outlets...lol!!! We have one nearby and it gets me into trouble.
As for the heartburn on a plate...so funny!!

Carlton Kate said...

I love WH, IHOP, etc...I don't discriminate when it comes to greasy breakfast food! The best part of this post is the pic of the boys in their Barbours.

I looove Waffle House hashbrowns (I get them plain too!). That place is a total guilty pleasure and it's probably a good thing that I don't live near one - too tempting!!
