I've only ever eaten at a Waffle House once (in S. Carolina) and it was appalling. They did have some Pink Floyd music on the jukebox though, so it wasn't all bad.

Why would you choose anything else?

So is Waffle House a step up from IHOP or a step down? (asking for a friend)

Depends upon which type of bacteria you prefer with your diarrhoea.

It's different - I have never eaten at IHOP and am not inspired to do so - it seems to be all about desserts for breakfast. Waffle house is more about protein - eggs, ham, steaks, burgers, with a side of hashbrowns or a waffle.

I love my American style bacon, thank you very much, and consider back bacon to be nothing more than cured ham masquerading as proper bacon and is unappealing and tasteless. Just as Canadian bacon sold in the US it nothing like what is considered bacon in Canada.

Then don't go to the Waffle House in Abington, VA or the one on Hardy Street in Hattiesburg, MS. I will never step foot in a Waffle House.

Personally, I consider IHOP a step up ... a very small step up. Their pancakes are great but the few times I've tried other things on the menu was not happy.

Other then AZ, I do not believe there are any Waffle House's on the west coast.

I've seen them in AZ but they always look so run down and less then appealing, but truckers seem to like them.

For breakfast I prefer Denny's over Ihop, Denny's seems to provide more food for your buck with better selection.

Yes, there are none west of Arizona, and there's only a couple in New Mexico, ten in Colorado and none in Nebraska, Iowa, or Wisconsin, or anywhere north or west of there. They'll never win any awards for their ambiance, but I can't fault their fried breakfasts foods.

Should have watched today's showing of "What You Don't Know About Dixie" on the History Channel.

Informative, funny and a great watch.

All my mentions in this thread are based on comparisons to my Cali experience, and so far going very well......

Had a trip to the DDS (DMV) yesterday to swap my licence, I went to the downtown office, which in LA would have been torture.
Parking not good, but better than LA
Office appallingly busy, but took my ticket, waited maybe 10 minutes, up to desk, handed over Cali licence, green card, SSN, and 2 forms of address ID, quick eye test, coughed up $25, sorted.
I don't think I was in the office any longer than 30 mins. Very pleased indeed!!

Every DMV I went to in Cali (I tried a few) was a test of stamina, patience and an example of hopelessness............
