The day after Christmas found DLS on a day trip to Gettysburg. After getting our fill of battlefields and history, we jumped back on the road to head home. Yes, I’d made him go to Cracker Barrel – his first time! – on our way there, though I didn’t take photos. On our way back, we just had to stop at Waffle House… because that’s how I roll 😉
Someone asked me last time about the tomatoes – so here’s a shot of the relevant portion of the menu.
DLS went with pork chops smothered in country gravy, Texas toast, and hash browns. He really enjoyed this – and I tried a bite of his pork chop, and it was rather tasty – juicy and properly cooked.
I decided to go big or go home and ordered the triple of hash browns, smothered, covered, diced, capped, and country. The gravy was missing, so a whole bowl was brought to me when I asked about it. On the side is my very sad looking $1 hamburger that I just had to order to find out what a $1 burger looked like here.
Oh, right, DLS also got a salad with his pork chops. Ummm… it was bagged salad.
I wanted sausage for my hash browns, so I added on an order.
This is a close up of my burger. With a sausage patty on top of it for size comparison. The burger was terrible – completely overcooked, shrunken, and just awful. Strangely, someone came in later and ordered the burger to go – that was it. It wasn’t a homeless person, just a regular guy – do people actually like these types of burgers?! Blegh.
And my plate, at the end, with me clutching my belly moaning “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing!” Okay, I didn’t, there’s still some potato there… but eesh. I may have shocked DLS…
Yvo says: Once again, a completely satisfying meal at Waffle House for super cheap (though I don’t remember the final total). Perfect road trip stop!
it is what it is: cheap road trip pit stop food!
