Went here to waste time and ended up ordering a burger which I didn't really want but did eat. It was standard for the price. Quick service. Friendly staff. Would go again.

We went on WH anniversary so they were make waffles in the parking lot and giving away lots of WH schwag. The old pictures and memorabilia are interesting and kids loved playing in the kitchen.

The hours on TripAdvisor show 10a-10p, but we went and they were not open. If you read down a few reviews, one person noted they are only open by appointment or a couple specific times a year, and other reviews confirm that they never see...More

Yes, we did. We drove all the way from Florida to Georgia just for Waffle House's 60th anniversary. It was hokey but it was worth it. We showed up early and they were still setting up. NO ONE ELSE WAS AROUND. I had visualized a...More

You better call their corporate office or email them. Unless you have a large group and schedule an opening, I would doubt that they would be open. It is rare that they are open by chance. That would be my suggestion.
