I know this thread is about WH but it morphed into including White Castle.  I read in this morning's Dispatch that WC is building a new one in the Columbus area and has applied for a full blown liquor license!!!  Yep, beer, wine, spirits, mixed drinks.  Woohoo!  May change the way I think about White Castle!! 


But WHERE do you go for munchies AFTER drinking at WC?" />" />



See, that's the brilliant plan!  They don't have to go anywhere.  Imagine all of the drunk driving that will cut down on!

There's never been Two Buck Chuck in Ohio -- even at Trader Joe's. The state won't allow it. What was Two Buck Chuck everywhere else cost nearly four bucks here because the state mandates minimum pricing rules.

Waffle House is what it is.  I have been in a few that could really use a good cleaning, but most are kept up as well as any other chain place.  My usual order is a couple eggs over easy/sausage cooked well, hash browns with onion, and wheat toast.  Black coffee.  Hot, fresh, and good.   I know the hash browns are from re-hydrated potatoes, but I think they taste great.   I like the thin waffles, too, with honey instead of syrup.  Have to ask for the waffle to be cooked crisp and brown, so it's not pale and flabby; sometimes they can rush the cooking, especially when they are busy.   Much prefer it to a Dennys, IHOP, or most other chain places for breakfast.   Driving from Missouri to the Gulf for vacation, WH is a must stop.

I love Waffle House.  Wish we had one but then it wouldn't be special when traveling.

We just moved to Gainesville, Fl about 3 mos ago and have a Waffle House about a mile away. It's become our go to breakfast place though sometimes it's so busy we have to go elsewhere. I've always been a WF fan but the wife didn't care much for it and now she's become a big fan.

Actually $2 Buck Chuck is now $4 Buck Chuck at most TJ stores. Most everyone still calls it $2 Buck Chuck since that stuck in everyone's mind. And Yes, OH, PA and other money grubbing states need to revise their antiquated liquor laws. Prohibition was over in 1933! And we know how well that worked.

I think WC's wine choices should be "Red" or "White".

Agreed.  With the choices being Paisano or Chablis.  May as well have nasty wine with those nasty sliders.

I forget what food event I was at where a guy was wearing a tee shirt which read "Friends don't let friend drink white zinfandel!"

Yay!  Let's all be arrogant wine snobs!

Whatever you think of white zinfandel doesn't mean jack squat if she likes it, but if you insist on being meddlesome you can bring home a few bottles of similar wines in the semi-dry to semi-sweet range and let her decide.  And after she does, STFU and let her drink what she wants.
 
For 2017 I resolve to finally visit a Waffle House.

That might work.  This year my Ohio trip route comes in from the southwest but with enough advance planning I could probably fit Columbus into the plans.

That would be great. Why, who knows. I might even be able to get Lisa to the Waffle House for that.

I'm pretty sure you'd have to give her a Jackie O.-style disguise to pull that off!

How about a nice pino grigio? We enjoy Santa Margherita Pino Grigio a lot.

I refuse to go to a Waffle House. I've seen too many ghetto fights break out on YouTube videos.

We went for breakfast Sunday morning and it was very busy. One thing I saw was they now apparently use an Expo now instead of the waitstaff shouting orders to the cook. Also they had three cooks working on different parts of the orders instead of one cook doing it all.

That's standard for a busy weekend morning. Two, three, four cooks -- that's always the way its done. They usually even have one server who does nothing but take carryout orders.

My WH sets up a table and puts a coffee maker on it and provides free coffee while you wait on weekends.
Good strategy - Keeps people from leaving.

I really enjoy the WH that is close to me.  I have never ordered anything but breakfast which is two eggs, bacon, hash browns with onion, waffle and coffee.  I have never finished the entire plate but it is very good.  They have a lot of regulars that break the fast every day. I have never experienced any riff raff there and it is very clean.  The staff seems to have worked there for a long time and they definitely greet every person that arrives.
