Waffle House is closing stores due to Corona Virus


How will we know how bad the tornadoes are now?

On a recent trip South, we had breakfast at Waffle House almost every day. Sure wish they would expand the chain to New England!

It's one of my favorite eating places. Sad to see them closed

Closing 420 locations. That's less than 1/4 of all their locations.

And they quickly sold out of their waffle mix online, too: https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/08/us/wa...rnd/index.html

Bummer. Simply because I like their food plus its the one restaurant chain where they cook right out in the open and you know nothing happens to your food like stuff being dropped on the floor and a cook putting it on a plate.

Most places I eat, I kind of prefer the cook putting the food on a plate. YMMV, I guess.
