We ventured out to the Waffle House at 11240 Westheimer for some pork products and waffles. There is something about this place that makes it a destination restaurant. We ordered a super "breakfast" with a pecan waffle, sausage, and our hash browns "smothered, covered and scattered." If you're not familiar with Waffle House hash brown lingo, that's hash browns scattered on the griddle with onions and covered with American cheese. You can also get them "topped," which means they poor chili over the top.
Usually, you have to drive down I-10 somewhere between San Antonio and Gainsville, Florida on some deranged road trip to run into a Waffle House, but not in Houston. There's actually a couple locations here. With more pork products than you can shake a stick at, it is well worth the drive! Oink...
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
