    Being from Atlanta and a frequent patron of Waffle House this story does not surprise me at all. I have many many stories from my younger days that start with the most common intros in the south, “So we ended up at the Waffle House.”

    Waffle House is awesome. I could go for an all star right about now.

    Every year at Blade, I frequent the one near the Cobb Galleria. They take good care of me there.

    Y'all ever see the DPx Gear Dangerous Places World Tour T-shirts that had Angola, Iran, Colombia, Afghanistan, and Waffle House listed?

    I have one around here somewhere.

    I can see an Expat/Awful Wawful collaboration....

    Waffle house lost my business when they tried to stay cash only for far too long. I know they've changed that policy, but the damage is done and they don't even register when I think about where to eat.

    That doesn’t bother me. I’m a cash only person myself. But I understand your objection. It’s the same reason I don’t visit Apple Stores. They don’t take cash.

    By the way, I’m serious about being a cash only person. Which has led to some interesting discoveries. One is that your local bank doesn’t really have a lot of cash on hand. If I need more than $5k to buy something, they have asked that I order the money a day or two ahead. Purchasing a truck with cash these days is like coordinating the moon landing fakery, it involves so many people.

    You might be a redneck if...you've ever gone to Waffle House looking for a date.

    What a great song. Sincerely. I'm not usually a country fan -- you'da never guessed that, right? :p -- but I always enjoy good country or CW when I hear it. (I've got a few fav country artists; I'll list them another time.)

    But this is exceptional. I really like the story line, the way the singer tells a story within the music, not just repetitious lyrics.

    It strikes me as country rap, or country meets rap. He delivers it in a rap cadence, though (thankfully) slower and understandable.

    I wasn't so fond of the video. Creative stuff for kids, but this song deserves some footage IN a Waffle House.

    Scattered, smoothered and covered, indeed. I've eaten in many of them, especially during driving trips across country. I made many trips from Albuquerque to Memphis for family reasons, and WH was a standard along I-40.

    I'll never forget watching a short order cook somewhere in OK that was a master of motion. Full house, standing room only, and she was kicking out orders so fast, both hands scooping, turning eggs, smoothering, browning toast, bacon, etc, etc etc. It was a true masterpiece performance. I left a tip for the waitress, but also one for the cook.
