CARTERSVILLE, Ga., March 14, 2022 — Oh what a brunch today in this town northwest of Atlanta! I think it was my first Waffle House stop in about a decade.
(We don’t have many, if any, back home in Iowa, do we?)
I chanced to be served by supreme saleswoman Betty Reagan, who told me she’s been with Waffle House 46 years!
“Oh my goodness,” I said, “you must be their longest-tenured employee.”
No, she said, “I keep leaving, coming back, leaving, coming back, but I’ve been doing that 46 years. I might be the oldest employee, I guess. I sure am in here!”
And the food?
better ‘n Betty!
The Waffle House restaurant in Cartersville, a town a little northwest of Atlanta, Ga.
And it was as good as it looks. (I skipped the grits, and I couldn’t finish the toast, but the rest of it? I may have to stop along Interstate 75 and take a nap.)
Betty Reagan, like she was from Central Casting for a Waffle House waitress.
