Waffle House opens location inside Turner Field
ATLANTA -- There are 381 Waffle House locations in Georgia and 132 in Atlanta and the metro area, well, make those numbers 382 and 133.
Friday marked opening of a Waffle House in Turner Field, home of the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves, though to be fair it's probably better described as a Waffle Hut. This version of the Southern institution -- it's headquartered in Norcross, Ga. -- features a scaled-down menu with classic, peanut butter and chocolate chip waffles, as well as hash browns that you can have plain or "All The Way," which includes onions, cheese, chili, ham and peppers.
And of course, fitting the ballpark experience, the prices are inflated. Those "All The Way" hash browns would typical run you a little north of $4.00 (prices do vary by location), but at Turner Field, they're $9.00.
Of course, the lingering debate is whether baseball fans have been waiting to add breakfast (or late, late night food) like waffles and hash browns to their typical hot dog and hamburger fare.
The verdict is out, though in a stadium where you can already get sushi, crepes, crab cakes and steak sandwiches, it's not like the Braves fanbase is only getting the traditional anyway.
