I actually like Waffle House and so do my ILs. I am from CA and my BFF from CA was dying to go to one when she visited us in GA. I took her to the "original" one in Decatur (the original one is a museum but this one is down the street from the original) the first time she visited. Th next time I took her to one closer to our new house in the 'burbs. She was actually disappointed how clean everything was...not ghetto enough

I really like their raisin toast with apple butter though.


Thanks for the reviews! I am following along!
OMG !!! That Jim Gaffigan saying is sooo funny and so true !! Hahahaha. That just made my day !!

I am sure the only reason why they have stayed open is the fact that their food is good.

Chef Mickeys

I made this dinner reservation early because I knew we would be tired after our travel day. Our ADR was for 5:30 PM and we arrived a bit early






We were given a pager and were buzzed right away. We got our picture taken and then we were seated. Later on in the trip I remember seeing a long line for the family photo, so I am going to say that it pays to get an early ADR for this one.



The kids were really excited to finally be eating at the monorail restaurant



and DD loves her some characters. It was DHs birthday a week or so prior to this trip, so they gave him a birthday button which he wore on this night.

It was Easter Sunday so there were several Easter Eggs around. I think they were made of chocolate, but I am not sure.





Anyhoodle, we were seated and we got an allergy warning on our ticket



DD is allergic to nuts, so the chef came out and he took DD and DH up to the buffet. She showed the chef what she wanted to eat and he said all of those things would be fine for her.

Pluto came out right away





And then Minnie





It looked like we were clear on characters for a while so we went up to get some food. Here is my first plate.



Starting at the broccoli going clock-wise  Broccoli (good), potatoes (yum), a roll and some butter (these rolls were sooo good), salmon (very good), and a salad (good).

DDs plate



Chicken fingers, pizza and macaroni. Yeah, I know. Some healthy stuff there. She liked the chicken and macaroni, but said the pizza was yucky.

Then the main mouse came by





DH was brought out a birthday cupcake





This is DHs plate



He said he liked it all. You can see chicken and cornbread on DSs plate in the background.

Then Donald Duck came out.



This was my second plate

Prime rib (good), Ham (this had some kind of cranberry glaze that made it really yummy), another yummy roll and some more yummy potatoes. I thought I had more of the salmon, but I guess not.

DD got some ice cream for dessert.



It was a weird color and consistency. I assume it was more ice milk than ice cream and DD said it was just OK.

Heres my dessert plate



Cheescake, rice krispie treat, key lime tart and a oreo bon-bon. I loved all of these and here is a close-up of the cheesecake



they had a little Easter theme going on that I thought was cute.

And then Goofy came out to round out the Fab Five



I am usually not a buffet fan, but I really liked this restaurant. No one else complained and DD says she wants to go back. The food was good, not great but good. We left stuffed and satisfied. A good experience !!

I'm in ! Enjoying the ride so far, I love your trippies !

There are lots of Waffle Houses here in Texas, and the one closest to my home is actually very clean (it's only 3 years old or so, maybe it takes time to get that "polish" on them) !

Is it a bad thing when the staff knows what I order lol ? "Triple scrambled light, waaay light, hold the grits, wheat toast and waffle light, waaay light !"

If I can't sleep (which is often) I end up there in the middle of the night, and boy is that prime time to see some characters !

Hey !! So glad you stopped by !!

That is funny that they know what you order. I went there plenty during college so I know what you mean about characters. And not the Mickey Mouse kind of characters !!

Loved your review of Chef Mickey's. We will be going there very soon. My 3 kids are also allergic to nuts. We're there any other desserts your daughter could have besides the ice cream?

Thanks for your reviews! We were there the week before you. Leaving on the 31st. Sometimes the crowds were so bad especially MK we couldnt keep swimming. It was all we could do to tread water. Lol. Looking forward to the rest of your report!!

All of the things on my plate didn't have nuts, but I m not sure about cross contamination. The rice krispie treats were safe. I would have to say ask the chef when you go. This is always a concern for us as well.

Yeah, I heard that about the week before. I don't think our week was as bad. There were a few times we had to stop and wait for an opening, but I think you guys had it worse for sure.

I just wanted to let all my fellow Waffle House lovers know that I thought of you while eating my hashbrowns for dinner tonight. As usual, the restaurant was grungy and the other customers one step above homeless, but it was delicious!
