Although Waffle House is known for their all-star special with bacon, eggs, hashbrowns, and a waffle – they also carry 100% angus beef burgers.
For example, their bacon angus cheeseburger deluxe is available to order all day long. It can even be served with an order of smothered, covered, and chunked hashbrowns.
Waffle House is open 24 hours and only closes when disastrous weather is in the area. Did you know the Waffle House Index is used by FEMA to determine how bad a storm is?
- Green: Full menu; the restaurant sustained little or no damage and has full power.
- Yellow: Limited menu; the restaurant is running out of food or has limited power.
- Red: The Waffle House is closed due to severe flooding or damage.
When the Waffle House Index is in the red zone, FEMA sends their people, resources, and equipment to these communities as soon as possible.
