Soo slow!!! Not at all what we expected from a Waffle House, which are usually consistent good food and fast service. Our waitress went outside with several customers for a smoke break before bringing us our food. Will not visit this Waffle House again!

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.

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.
