I went to a Waffle House today. It was my first visit to any Waffle House. There I ate a waffle, bacon, toast, scrambled eggs, and grits. (“Sure, sure, I heard of grits,” My inner Cousin Vinny says. “I just actually never seen a grit before.”) Washed it all down with a tall glass of orange juice.
In doing some reading now, apparently I ate at Waffle House #1000. It’s located in Avondale Estates, Ga., the chain’s founding city. The very first restaurant used to sit just down the street from #1000. I wonder what Nate Winegar is up to these days.
