Dirty cook at waffle house
Posted by Sig29 on 08/03/2009
COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I always ate at waffle house but I never watched how they make the food, but now that I paid attention to the cook, I realized they are so dirty. This happened just today around 2 AM in the morning on Aug 3, As I came, I saw the cook smoking, then I went to my table and ordered my food. The waitress went to the cook and told him my order, so he went straight to cook the food, I saw that he never used any plastic gloves, or washed his hands because he was smoking, thats so dirtty. When I stood up to my right as a consumer, and I told him, that I saw him smoking and he never washed his hands, he got all mad, and said that he won't serve me, and that I was free to walk out the door. i DIDNT WANT TO ARGUE SO I LEFT, SINCE HE KICKED ME OUT, BUT THIS IS THE LAST TIME I AM GOING THERE, THEY NEVER USE GLOVES, WHO KNOWS WHERE THEIR HANDS WERE ?

It's a Awffle House! Hit the wall and see how many roaches jump out. The cooks hands have to be cleaner than the establishment.

Consider this: You could see what was going on in Waffle House. Can you image what may go on in restaurants where you do not see the kitchen or the cook? Some would probably make Waffle House look like an operating suite.

You may want to file a complaint with the health department.

That should have been a work policy, not smoking while on the job.

Smoking is a nasty habit. Good review.

I would kill for a cigarette...

Just curious, bcd, are you an ex-smoker?
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-03:
Old Fart, any more cigarette's and they may kill you instead.

I'm not a former smoker (I've never even tried one), and I'm completely in agreement with BCD. It's messy, it's expensive, and oh yeah it can kill you! I hate to think of any M3C member sick or dying from it.
Posted by DigitalCommando on 2009-08-03:
I think smokers fall into 2 basic categories. 1.) The comfortable smoker: they know all of the bad stuff about it and have accepted that they can't beat the habit and will go to their grave with a cigarette in hand and have no problem with that. When confronted with it, they quietly extend the minds middle finger and just laugh it off. I don't mind these smokers. Then there is the nazi smoker. These people have little comfort within themselves and pounce on every opportunity to defend the indefensible going so far as claiming a 'right' to smoke even though it is not even mentioned in the constitution/bill of rights or any state law as a right. These nicotine-crazed pitbulls have two self-inflicted problems.

I remember back in the '50's and '60's most people smoked wherever they wanted. Most people thought nothing of it. The only place smoking was banned was in an elevator and on a plane during takeoff/landing.

Today the worst complainers are the ex-smokers.

I, myself, am an ex-smoker. It doesn't bother me to be around it nor do I desire to have cigarette. I also do not preach to or condemn those who do enjoy it.

Things have sure changed.
Posted by DigitalCommando on 2009-08-03:
Chuck, back then nobody was concerned because they didn't know the full effect of asbestos, malathion, ddt, radiation, flouride and yes, cigarettes to name a few. Today we have educated people who are aware of what they eat, drink and breath. Are you saying it was better back then just because people were ignorant to the evils?
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2009-08-03:
DC, no, not at all. Just a comment about how things have changed.

What grinds my gears are the laws that ban smoking, which is legal, in privately owned establishments. A dude who owns a bar, restaurant or bowling alley should be the only person to determine the smoking policy for the business he/she owns. The nanny state stepping in on this one is just not right.

Although, I got to be honest I do like it when there is no smoking in a restaurant but that should have and would have came about by consumer pressure. We didn't need a law. That was just the lazy way out.
Posted by tnchuck100 on 2009-08-03:
I agree 100%, Crabman. The only mandated requirement might be the prominent posting of a notice that this privately owned establishment permits smoking.
Posted by Eloise on 2009-08-03:
North Carolina just banned smoking in restaurants. I'm allergic to the smoke, so now I can go out to eat more often.
Posted by DigitalCommando on 2009-08-03:
And maybe the bar, restaurant or bowling alley should be allowed to only allow white people in, keep out the handicapped so they done't have to spend thousands to accomodate them and maybe they can even require a minimum fico score to keep out the poor non-spenders too. Laws are in place due to the fact that if owners were responsible for some choices, the wrong ones will be made. Laws level out the playing field and allow everybody to compete equally, that's why they are there.

Eloise, California has had a smoking ban on bars and restaurants for years. You're right it is nice to be able to go anyplace you want without worring if it will be full of 2nd hand smoke or not. I don't like leaving someplace with your clothes smelling like an ash tray.

DC, excellent points.

Posted by Skye on 2009-08-03:
You were smart to leave. Who knows what special surprise might of ended up in your food.

I have never been to a Waffle House. We have one in town, and everytime I drive by it, the smell that comes from that place makes me want to vomit.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-03:
This is what I never got. If people didn't like leaving the someplace smelling like an ash tray then why would they choose to enter in the first place? Nobody forced them to patronize a smoking establishment. It was indeed a freewill choice. I guess taking responsibility for one's own choices isn't too chic anymore.

Where does it stop? Should all establishments have extra large booths and bar stools to accommodate obese people. Should all restaurants be forced to offer up kosher and vegan options in order to level out the playing field? I'm allergic to shell fish should all restaurants be forbidden from serving shell fish.

When lazy people turn to the government to solve all their discomforts it won't be long till their biggest discomfort will be that same government.

Posted by tnchuck100 on 2009-08-03:
Crabman, unfortunately that is EXACTLY the way it is headed. In another 50 - 75 years the conditions defined in the record "In the year 2525" will come to pass. I will not be here to suffer these consequences.

Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-03:
Seem to remember a whiney rant from someone about having to follow a smoker out the gate after work. All that whining because he felt the rules were not being followed. Like he found out sometimes it's not a choice to be around smoke or not. Yes, I prefer not to but that's not always an option.

Laws and rules are in place to try and level out the playing field as he found out.

Now superbowl I was complaining about employees not following the employer's smoking policy that was agreed to by the employee's union. There is a huge difference between policies made by the owner and those forced upon the owner by the government via statute. Apples and oranges my friend.

I approve of the smoking bans because I don't like my right to breathe clean air to be infringed upon by somebody who doesn't care about their own health so they certainly don't care about the health of others.
Posted by Eloise on 2009-08-03:
I'm right up there with you BCD. I'm allergic to cigarette smoke, and can't be around it. Period! If I can't go into a store or restaurant because people are smoking in front that's wrong.

A man spends his hard earn money to buy land, build a structure, buy inventory, develop a business plan and put his livelihood on the line to start a business. What gives anybody the right to dictate to that man that he can't allow the legal activity of smoking to occur on his property. What next? You don't care for the smell of fish so you're gonna pass a law to prevent him from serving fish? This is not about your right to breathe fresh air it's about the rights of the owners to enjoy as they see fit the property in which they own. Laws that infringe on private property ownership rights erode the concept of individuals owning property. The more the state can dictate silly mandates to the use of private property the more that private ownership evolves into public ownership of everything where one pays for the right to be the caretaker. I believe the public ownership of all property is called communism. Well perhaps some of you are still holding onto to the notion of communism but not this NIC. Ya know what NEXT we're gonna let the government own the automakers, be investors in private banks and own the health care system?

Beautifully put, Crabby!
Posted by bcd on 2009-08-03:
The business owner should not have the right to dictate what happens on his property when it infringes on the health of others. That's why murder is not legal on private or public property.

Fortunately the majority rules.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-03:
Crab, I hear the music playing in the background! I hate smoking, but I do appreciate the rights of property owners. Unfortunately, there are laws to abide by even when owning a home. I do believe they have been in place for years. People never knew about second hand smoke in years past. Now they do. It greatly affect the employees of these establishments--who may not be able to find a job elsewhere at this time. Let's give them some thought too.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-03:
bcd, You do realize that murder is illegal in every state and that smoking is legal in every state? Should the state be able to tell people that their privately own houses must be non smoking ya know just in case a non-smoker might drop by for a visit. Because we can't infringe on the visitor's health who make the freewill choice to visit said private property. That would be wrong.

Majority rules? Huh, so I guess if the majority wanted to institute a law that mandated every single property owner MUST allow smoking on their property you'd be okay with being forced to allow smoking in your home because fortunately the majority rules?

The most despicable of tyrannical laws are always disguised as being for the public good or the public security. If freedom is anything it is the freedom of self determination for ourselves and our property. When you chip away at others freedoms you're chipping away at your own as well.

Ya know I do not care for cigarette smoke. Before the Oklahoma smoking ban I chose not to patronize establishments that chose to allow their places to be an ash tray. I took that responsibility for myself. I sure the hell don't need the government to take that away from me. That's just me though a freedom loving believer in the dreams of our founding fathers and the philosophies of the age on enlightenment. A relic if you will.

Posted by bcd on 2009-08-04:
Let’s not confuse public and private property rights. What people do on their private property is their business. When they open their property to the public they are expected to observe reasonable rules of health and safety. Our elected legislators agree with this and that's why local municipalities have the right to create ordinances and health codes. If not for the health codes many restaurants would have dirty bathrooms with no soap and hot water for the food handlers and customers, dirty kitchens, slime growing in ice machines, and customers blowing foul tobacco smoke on other customers. So, smokers quit crying about your rights and take your nasty habit outside. Enough said.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-08-04:
Crabby, I with you. bcd, I open a business to the public, at that point, it becomes the public's right to shop or not to shop. The smoking laws regarding private businesses are a useless waste of time and money. JUST DON'T GO THERE!!! How hard is that to understand?
Next, they are going to proclaim that a business have a deaf translator (I am deaf)on hand, someone that can speak all languages, it goes on and on.
Businesses are allowed in my and most other states to put a no guns sign up. Guess what??? I DON"T GO TO THOSE PLACES! Some of them were businesses I'd been dealing with for years. Some of them took them down, some didn't.
But it's the private business owner that get's to make that decision. Not the gubment.
People better wake up, the gubment controlling every facet of you life is not that far away.
Posted by Ponie on 2009-08-04:
'... the gubment controlling every facet of you life is not that far away.'

I disagree, jktshff1. It's here right NOW.
Posted by Anonymous on 2009-08-04:
"Let’s not confuse public and private property rights."

Let's not confuse public and private property. Just because I make my private property available to the public that SHOULD NOT make it public property. The very key stone of liberty is INDIVIDUAL rights over the rights of the GROUP. When the rights of the group outweigh the rights of the individual then there is no liberty only well meaning governments which as Ponie and Jkt pointed out trying to control every facet of our lives.

Corporate Policy Forbids Senior Citizen Discounts
Posted by Charlesheartsill on 08/18/2012
MOREHEAD CITY, NORTH CAROLINA -- My wife and I started dining at the Wafflehouse in Morehead City, North Carolina....we inquired about senior citizen discounts...the manager told us that there was none offered....I had read on line (brads deals) that wafflehouse was listed as offering senior discounts so I sent messages through the wafflehouse website on three different occasions wanting corporate to verify one way or the other concerning discounts for seniors...I never received any response...so I called corporate headquarters and left a message.

Someone did call me and told me that offering senior discounts was against company policy...also, I found out from the manager of wafflehouse I visited that no newspaper machine is allowed on the premises because corporate does not want to encourage patrons to enjoy that second cup of coffee and they will leave quicker. It is distressing to know that seniors are not appreciated...and that papers are not allowed to be purchased on premises to increase corporate profits...

I'm not a senior citizen yet, but I have to admit I don't quite understand the concept of a senior citizen discount. I've saved money all my life, and I'm hoping to spend a little extra on myself before I die.

It seems to me that a retail establishment would have to increase prices for everyone if they are going to offer senior discounts - the money has to come from somewhere.

Therefore, I personally wouldn't hold it against a restuarant if they didn't offer a discount to seniors.

If the restauarant encouraged reading while dining, imagine what would happen if a significant number of diners took advantage of it. There would be a line of customers waiting to be seated, and several papers spread open with relaxed readers in no hurry to leave. This would have a dual impact on the restaurant's ability to make money. Some would get upset and leave, and the number served would go down.
Posted by leet60 on 2012-08-18:
U.S. restaurants in general, are not typically friendly to patrons remaining seated at a table after a meal is finished. Time is money to them and a table being occupied for an extended period after the meal is finished, with the only potential to make money being drink refills, is not conducive to their bottom line. I have traveled throughout the world and find this to be almost exclusive to the U.S. In many European countries you can remain at a table for long periods and are welcome.

As for senior discounts, personally, as a senior citizen I do not seek these. I know many are on a fixed income and it is a benefit to them, allowing them to eat out when otherwise they may not be able to. I can't imagine that wafflehouse would be losing that much money as most senior discounts are 10% or less, which is minimal in my opinion.
Posted by Anonymous on 2012-08-18:
Seems to me that the majority of their business comes in at night after the bars close. Their establishments are usually very small. They really don't have the capacity to have people lounge around and read the paper and sip coffee for hours at a time. Starbucks welcomes that type of crowd (their chairs are more comfy too).
Posted by FoDaddy19 on 2012-08-18:
I think your complaint should be with Brad's Deals instead of Waffle House, as that it seems that Brad's Deals steered you wrong in the first place. Also keep in mind that a senior discount is not a right or anything. It's just a perk that some businesses offer, it's not an entitlement.
Posted by melissa253 on 2012-08-18:
I can totally understand restaurants not wanting people to sit and read the paper while sipping coffee. Time is money.
Posted by charlesheartsill on 2012-08-19:
I know some of the comments are well intentioned...but not well thought out because mcdonalds...chic fil a and our burger king offers free newspapers to read, plus they have a newspaper machine outside each establishment.
Posted by jonthethird on 2012-08-19:
the free newspapers at McDonalds are those left by previous customers (in CA at least.)
Posted by George on 2013-06-12:
Here in Madison, Al. several fast food establishments suscribe to newspapers to give out to customers. I stop there for the free paper, and always order a drink plus snack, too. It pays here.
Posted by Dee on 2013-08-19:
Chick-fil-a, McDonalds and Burger King do not make money on their tables - customers are not served by servers. Every table at Waffle House has to be manned by a server so the turnover needs to be quicker for the company to make money.

I couldn't find anywhere to praise your resturant so, I chose this method.

This is a great place for eggs. The waitress Jess and her husband Mike the chef, are the nicest people, they make you feel welcome. And the food is done exactly as you want it. I just wanted you to know what two great employees you have.

The Music
Posted by Sullibar on 03/24/2012
WARRENTON, MISSOURI -- My mother and I went to the Waffle House located in our home town yesterday which was 3-23-12 at 5 :00 pm and could not even hear my self talk let alone the waitress the music was so loud like being at a concert. my mother is blind and I have to read her the menu so I asked the girl if she could turn it down a bit, she came back and said no she couldn't because they don't have a key to get to it to turn it down. well needless to say we got up and left. we have been in there before and never has the music been so loud you can't hear any one talk. Now I don't know if she was telling me true or not but if she was I am telling you that there are a number of restaurants in Warrenton, and that's what we did got up and went to Dennys.

There's nothing worse than extra loud music in a place that "should " provide a place of warmth and relaxation... I'd never even have sat down on entering that kind of environment.
Who needs to hear Lawrence Welk or elevator music at 5000 decibels.
Posted by CrazyRedHead on 2012-03-25:
Even without music, Waffle House doesn't strike me as a place with warmth and a relaxing atmosphere. I do go there quite a bit, but then, It's the only place for a good breakfast. I don't consider fast food to be a good place for breakfast, to processed. I'm sure that there are a few smaller places but I haven't really looked.
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-03-25:
"Even without music, Waffle House doesn't strike me as a place with warmth and a relaxing atmosphere."

More true words I don't believe have been spoken. They may have cranked the music up to distract "diners" as to what is going on around them.

I empathize with the OP - some eateries are militant about sound levels, and employees are not empowered to alter the "entertainment" significantly.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2012-03-26:
Was the jukebox playing those "Waffle House" songs at the time? I know that many of them are both funny and hokey (I own a CD of Waffle House songs.) Still, regardless of the music, the jukebox shouldn't have been on that loud.

Waffle House
Waffle House
WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA -- At approximately 2:00 AM on the morning of May 17, 2010, I was six hours into a drive home after a weekend spent visiting my relatives in Charlotte, North Carolina. I had just driven over 360 miles, and I was starting to doze off behind the wheel when I exited the interstate and pulled into the Waffle House restaurant located at 980 Millwood Pike in Winchester, Virginia to take a break.

The waitress (I think her name was Megan) and the cook (I don't recall his name) were extremely friendly, and after spending about a half an hour drinking coffee and engaging in conversation with them, they made sure that I was fully revived before I got back into my car and resumed my trip.

I have been to Waffle House locations all over the South, and I must say that the two employees I met at this location were the friendliest ones that I have ever encountered.

Every time I go to this waffle house I have to ask for my food to be cooked more or I have to do it myself at my house. Not only is this food piss poorly prepared, but I find myself overcharged whenever I place an order after 12:30. These %$$## need to have something said/done to them so they understand they can't get away with their poor excuse for customer service.

Another case of repeating the same action and expecting a different result. I think the problem may be a slow learner. We need to make allowances here.

Oh, and that last line could be easily interpreted as a threat. I'd watch what you say in the presence of others, otherwise you could find yourself spending the night in a jail cell. Although perhaps that could be the best thing for both you and those 'beotch' employees.

Ditto to everyone else.
Posted by PepperElf on 2009-12-21:
yes it's very wrong for him to want the staff "to have something done to them"

does sound a lot like a threat
and not a very smart one either, not if he puts it in writing online

That does it. I am never visiting that unnamed *&$#($ Waffle House more than 9 times after midnight and ordering the exact same meal!

Bad service
Posted by Chimpanyda on 10/15/2009
The food is not the greatest but it will get you full, but the service Hooo, the worst, yes they great you when you arrive, but that's all, after that you get ignored worst than the invisible man, instead of cleaning the tables (3 or 4) that are dirty, they talk among them and laugh like crazy.
that's all folks.

I agree the food isn't fantastic... you get what you pay for. I usually go there when I have a bad hangover. Somehow, their food makes me feel less crappy.
But, the service, where I live has been fine.

Perhaps, it's just your location.

Poor service and dirty facility
Posted by Southstreet on 07/30/2009
HOUMA, LOUISIANA -- I have on several occasions eaten at the Waffle House on Martin Luther King Blvd. in Houma Louisiana. Many times I was deeply disappointed and disturbed with the cleanliness and service in this establishment. My husband and I made a final attempt on Saturday, July 25th to have supper there around 8:30 or so. When we walked in there were egg shells in the middle of the floor. The floors are always extremely dirty and yucky. The service is sometimes O. K. but the other night your cook was obviously not in a good mood. We ended up leaving and I don't think I will be back there until someone does something about this. It didn't just happen and I'm surprised someone else didn't complain.

I don't think I'd get past time ONE.

I'm with MissMarple: if you were disturbed by this place, why would you continue to go back "many" times?

Many folks end up at the Waffle House when they are pretty well toasted, so egg shells on the floor would not be of importance. You obviously were quite aware of your surroundings. Why on earth did you ever return to that location after the first visit?

Whenever I went to a Waffle house for breakfast there were always several sloppy drunks nursing a hangover at 5 in the morning..
A little food on the floor was okay as long as it wasn't previously eaten..

Old fart, Waffle House food is best eaten when drunk. Next time, please come over and say hi to me.

I gotta be drunk to eat at Waffle House...then I don't really give a crap...
