As long as you are looking for your basic breakfast combination it's hard to beat a Waffle House! This was was quick, friendly and tasty! Eggs were fried just as I ordered them! Btw if you know of anyone in the area looking for a job they are hiring!

Rhonda our waitress though voice was a little raspy, she was fiesty and gave incredible timely service, she was a gem in the see of complaints I heard from other waitresses. Fast attentive and convenient. Food was hot.

This is not a fancy place, but it's a great place to get breakfast mid-afternoon on a hot tiring day. The service was great and breakfast was delicious.

You know you are at a classy restaurant when there are two cops being paid to work security in the parking lot. The food is what you would expect, but not worth the risk of eating here. Waffle House needs to ban problem customers.

I've been to many a Waffle House seeking breakfast at all hours of the day or night. I know what to expect. And this location delivered that pecan waffle I didn't know I'd been craving until I saw the big yellow sign. If you're looking for great grits and waffles, they deliver.

The staff was very untidy, the server brought out the coffee pot to see if I needed a refill the pot looked like it hasn't been washed since the 1500's,the manager was conducting an interview at the table next to our table, very unprofessional, I would not be going back, I wanted to throw up not my cup of tea

Our food was only barely warm. I had gravy that the waitress had to bring in a bowl because it was not ready at the same time as my meal and it also was barely warm and not very good.

Had breakfast here on Nov. 13th at 8:30. It was too busy, the staff was very friendly, the service was prompt and efficient. Our meals were prepared exactly as ordered. In and out and back on the road in just 20 minutes. We love Waffle House for its consistency, good service and excellent value and this location delivered as promised.

Thank Jim R
