Waffle House is an American institution with each one as beautiful as the next. Everyone, rich and poor, can agree that few things are more comforting than a Waffle House breakfast, whether it’s actually breakfast time or 3am after one too many drinks. Order as much as you want because it’s impossible to spend more than $15 (and that’s a stretch), and at a minimum make sure to smother and cover your hash browns.
