    Just got around to posting this. I had some friends over two nights ago to watch movies/hang out. I was OCing at home with a tucked in shirt, and someone suggested we go to Waffle House for something to eat. I threw on a jacket over my pistol and we went to waffle house. I took off the jacket when we got there (it was warm and we crammed 6 people into one of those booth tables). I had no issues whatsoever. I know the employees saw the gun when I got up, but no one said anything. I was a little worried that we were going to get thrown out because my friend Amber is INSANE and enjoys life WAY TOO MUCH...hehe. But no problems.

    On a related note, does the Waffle House have a corporate stance on customers' carrying firearms that we know of?

    I'm sure if they did they would post it above the grill with all the other "rules". j/k

    I've never been to a waffle house. What 'rules' above the grill?

    The rules for firearms are not posted above the grill, at least not in MS or LA. They are on a sign that also lists that the parking lot is for customers only, and all alcoholic beverages and "weapons"inluding firearms are banned. Thankfully MS requires a very specific sign and this is not it. I have not seen it on all stores either, it is on all of the new stores, but on only a few of the old stores. There was a post on Packing.org way back that showed that Waffle house was a "family reasturant" and did not want to endanger the patrons, this was the reason given for the no guns signs. Personally I have not seen the employees give a care about firearms at all. The only thing they want is tips and to get off work.

    Much the same here in Richmond, KY, in fact, Double J.Nonedescript sign ,usual stuff, which I overlook,no issues to date, no one worries, staff are cool,good egg on toast, no issues.I would, of course, leave if asked to do so,but it has not happened!

    Pretty typical for dear old Kentucky really. Just about everyone understands about guns hereabouts. The way it should be , perhaps?

    Are you sure you live in Alabama. I'm just kidding.

    They have all of the common sense rules posted in little framed signs around the grill. Things like we serve customers on a firstcome basis. No fighting, blah blah blah.

    To me there suchbasic common sense things you wouldn't think they needed to be posted.

    Well. I lied. I've been to a waffle house. A few semesters ago my calculus professor was grading finals there and I stopped by to get my grade (otherwise it would have taken all weekend for me to see it entered into the system). But, as you might guess, I was more concerned with my grade than looking at waffle rules :P

    I hear about people going there all the time. It just looks like a.... scary ... place. It's probably really good. I like waffles too. Maybe I ought to go sometime :P

    It's AWFUL! But that's half the fun. It's the quintessential rundown, grease-trap, smelly, crackhead frequented establishment. For some reason though, the combination of grease, salt, coffee (along with the occassional case of beer drank BEFORE going there) makes everything delicious at 2am.

    Oh, it's not that bad. I go to the local Waffle House (incidently, I think it's one of the Northern-most Waffle House that exists) about three days a week for breakfast before I start work at 6AM. Yum.

    Been eating breakfast at a Richmond, Va. Vassel Haus for years and I always OC there. No sign, no comments other than positive ones and no problems. Have made any number of converts there too.
