Yea you need to go to one. Almost cult like following for those that have partaken of it. It's a lot of fried foods and good coffee and none of them are great places to eat but they are all pretty good and inexpensive. Probably wouldn't take a date to one for dinner if you're hoping to score some points......however I wouldn't hesitate to stop for some riding food if I'm anywhere close. And they are open all night. Seems pretty good to me.

An earlier post mentioned Tommy's in SoCal. Mmmmm. I'd gladly trade you guys one of our Waffle Houses for a Tommy's.
Chili fries are the bomb when prepping for an upcoming hangover...

Had a celebrity sighting at a Waffle House in Phx area about 15 yrs ago. Went in late night (2am ish), only one other customer in there, sitting at the counter. We sat a few seats down and when I heard him talk I knew...looked over and it was Mike Tyson, pre-facial tatoo days. The waitress said he came in all the time!

By the way, nice RR!

Ran into him at the AJ's Market on SDL Rd. one morning around 0600 when I was on my way to work. I expected him to be taller.

Doing the WH run in reverse first weekend in March, MiloBramble and I are headed out to the San Diego area that weekend to hang out with my oldest Son and friends for the weekend. Always looking for the good "Local Spots" so tell me more about the Tommy's thing.

U.S. Egg on SDL Rd. is one we frequent, at least twice a month, I'll have to give Toms Thumb a try though.

Thanks Steve,

The 101 Cafe and Pablito's are two that I will check out. Justin, my Son has only been out there since last year, he graduated from NAU in June and has been busy with his new job and GF. Doesn't leave allot of time, but he does have an uncanny ability to source micro-brews and margaritas.

MiloBramble aka Mark is the historian, he likes to take pictures and video and will be responsible for the evidence for the most part. Me, I like to ride, find the road less traveled and generally make obscene gestures at the camera.

Thanks for the heads up, and evidence to follow.

Don't forget Rudford's on El Cajon

They have that big ass hamburger, looks like a Big Mac on steroids... If you finish it they take your picture and put it up on the wall... I always try to stop at Cracker Barrel for chicken and dumplings before I leave Yuma... Mmmmmm...

Hello everyone,
A few people had some interest in some Waffle House after I posted this ride last November. Its short notice, but I am going to make this trip again this Sunday, December 29th. Probably leaving San Diego between 5am-6am to get to the Waffle House at around 1pm-2pm since I will be cruising and the usual gas stops needed for a ride.

I booked a room at the hotel listed below, and as of now they had only 2 or 3 rooms left. Its about $55 a night. Stayed there last year and it was a nice clean and quiet place. There is a gas station as you pull in to town to gas up for the next day or on your way out in the morning. Also a small restaurant in town as well. Both the restaurant and gas station are within walking distance to pick up beer!

Post or shoot me a PM if you want to meet up.



Waffle House location:
Waffle House
4824 East Chandler Boulevard


Hotel location:
Saguaro Hot Mineral Wells Motel
3847 N. 411th Ave
Tonopah, AZ 85354
623-386-5179
