    Thumbs up in praise of Waffle House

    So I was looking at photos from Georgia and noticed a Waffle House banner.

    mmmmm Waffle House.

    I've often mused it'd be great to have a Waffle House cycling team. It's just a cool logo IMO and I can tell you after decades of race weekend road trips, it's always nice to spot the source of cheap carbs n protein, done fast and right.

    Thanks and kudo's to Waffle House for sponsoring.

    They sponsored my cross race..

    a couple of years ago and were a big hit and seemed to have a great time.. It was perfect Belgium weather and they still set up shop and made all the riders super happy..

    I like Waffle House. It's pretty cool when they sing out hello to you when you walk in the door.

    In Atlanta there was a spot where 285 and a major road intersected and there was a Waffle House on each corner. 4 within a square mile of each other.

    Every time I'm in the south and see a Waffle House, I notice a large volume of extra creamy fat people all around. hmmm...

    The other days they go to Bob Evans or Cracker Barrel. You're gonna get big if you eat one of those Southern breakfasts every day. Well maybe not if you take it easy the rest of the day with the eating. I think a lot of these people are eating these crazy breakfasts, a good lunch, and then a big dinner with dessert every day. Then they tell you they don't eat much.

    I was at the airport waiting in line at a food place, and a heavy woman kept bumping into me from behind. It was about 5pm. I turn around and she tells me she hadn't eaten since noon, she was starving. I'm thinking damn, I had 2 cups of coffee and and english muffin at 6 this morning, relax..

    Of course, if you're away from the south and get an itch to see some fat people, you can always go to the mayonaise isle at Costco in most major cities. Usually a good concentration there, cause they locate the smokes in the same area.

    I admit I love waffle house. Only thing I don't like is they take cash only. Wish I wasn't 4 hours from the closest one.

    I might've been on crack that day, but I seem to recall paying with plastic at a WH once a few years back. Mebbe they changed policy.

    Or maybe I need to cut back on the crack. Naaah.

    Waffle House and ROAD

    Yep, ROAD Magazine is a big fan of Waffle House. Check out our video from Greenville the day before the US pro road race.

    Grits!

    When I lived in Tampa, we used to eat grits from WH before long rides. Good!!

    Having lived in Tampa and Atlanta, I've introduced many people around Denver to to joys of a Pecan Waffle, cheese grits, and a cup of that perfectly awful coffee. There are four that I know of in the Denver area.

    I always thought that if they put one near the Morrison exit on I70, it would be the busiest WH in the universe. Once skiers and mountain bikers were hooked, the place would be the most popular restaurant in Denver. It is the only place I can find here with real grits.

    That reminds me of the only other thing I dislike about waffle house (besides no credit cards)-I think the coffee stinks. But the waffles, hash browns and blue collar atmosphere make up for it!

    When I lived in SC, we would usually have a race or two each month in the upstate. That usually meant a Motel 8 or 6 and both would have a Waffle House within walking distance. Some of my best race days started out with a pecan waffle. I medaled at states after a double pecan waffle and bacon (four hours prior). We would just have to arrive at the right time to get a booth in the no smoking section.
