Besides having a wonderfully delicious pecan waffle

glenda_al

I wasn't charged for my order.

Went to Waffle House, as I often do, on a Sunday.

Got the attention of the cook, when I walked in and asked him if he would make me a crispy pecan waffle, with melted butter instead of syrup.

He did, even brought it to the table. He came back to see how I was enjoying the waffle, and I tipped him for doing such a great job. Normally the waiter/waitress does all that, but because I specifically got his attention when I walked in the door, he took care of EVERYTHING.

When I went to pay, the gal at the register told me my bill had been taken care of.

Life is good!

A crispy pecan waffle, yum, that sounds good. I think I'd still have the syrup though. ;>)

Oh, how delicious! I am so suggestible. My waffle iron will be coming out for breakfast tomorrow! Pecans are in the fridge, shelled, ready to go. But, yes, I'll have butter and maple syrup.

I have never been a syrup person. Just melted butter ONLY on pancakes as well.

I have never been to a Waffle House. Do they cook it right in front of you? I don't think I've ever seen the cook at a breakfast place.

That sounds like a nice surprise.

I'm with you on the syrup veto, glenda :-) Only butter for me as well.

And it must help to know or speak to the right person!! Nice for you that you got a free breakfast! That would make my day

What a wonderful way to start off a new month!

Now I'm wishing we had a Waffle House around here, it's been over 20 years since I've been in one. I wonder if IHOP has waffles. . . . . .

Chi, Waffle House restaurants are primarily found in the Southeast, with just a few exceptions. There are over 2000 virtually identical restaurants, each open around the clock every single day of the year.

Each restaurant runs faithfully according to a formula, guaranteeing customers of consistent, if plain and simple meals when ever they might find themselves in a Waffle House.

The kitchen is entirely open to the view of the patrons and the line cooks may be preparing waffles, eggs, steaks, or burgers....all at the same time.

I am a frequent diner at nearby Waffle House, so most know me. I had mentioned to the cook a while back about cooking bacon in my waffle if I ordered it. Mother did and I so loved bacon waffles.

chi, it's a small diner with cook and waitress working behind a counter with stools in front of the counter. Booths on the opposite side by windows.

They are always busy for breakfast and on weekends, so I tend to go on Sunday's when the crowd has diminished after 1:00.

The cook, I mentioned, is excellent. He's the only one I've seen on weekends.

Used to stop by Waffle House when son finished baseball practice when he was 7ish. He's now 54 :o)
