Whiskey Riff Mailbag: What’s Your Wildest Waffle House Story?

Waffle House

I truly feel bad for those who have never experienced the greatness that is Waffle House.

It really is one of the most intriguing places in America, wherever you go.

From watching meth heads talk to the wall, the occasional fight between employees/customers, jamming to music on the jukebox at 3 AM piss drunk with your buddies, plowing through an All-Star Special, and becoming friends on a first-name basis with employees, there’s never a dull moment.

I’ll never forget my wildest experience at a local Waffle House in Anderson, South Carolina.

A guy was a couple of people in front of me in line, quite visibly tweaking on something, when the cashier told him the price of his meal.

His response?

“I ain’t got it.”

When the cashier politely tells him that he has to pay up, the man does the unthinkable…

He smacks another guys plate of food off the bar, starts karate chopping it, then sends a full on MMA kick, accidentally kicking my buddy’s to-go cup out of his hand, and Coke and ice goes everywhere.

I’ll never forget my friends face when he looked at the guy and said:

“What the f*ck bro?”

Employees were able to restrain the man, and he was hauled away in a police cruiser.

Just another day on the job at Waffle House…

We’ve seen some wild stories from Waffle House over the years, from a restaurant full of happy drunks singing Luke Combs to a woman dropping her pants and licking the manager.

And of course there was this guy who fell through the damn ceiling and just started fighting everybody in the place.

You never really know what you’re going to get when you set foot in a Waffle House. It’s a beautiful thing.
