Waffle House is a popular spot for one huge reason: great breakfast food at any hour in the day. No one can deny, however, that Waffle House is often in the headlines for some pretty odd stories. A recent viral video showed a man falling through the roof of a Waffle House, and then proceeding to fight other customers. This kind of situation is not uncommon for Waffle House or any other 24-hour restaurant for that matter. From an owl breaking into a man living on the roof, Waffle House seems to be a place where crazy experiences thrive. The following is a list of some of the weirdest events that have happened at a Waffle House.

Falling through the roof

The most recent headline story is when a man fell through the roof of Waffle house and fought his way out. The police are still currently looking for him, as he ran off and did not return.

Hair Stylists

Two employees of Waffle House were fired for styling each others hair with utensils. Not only were they combing their hair with forks, one employee dipped the hair of the other into a pot of boiling water. The location then went through a health inspection that they passed, but that somehow makes it worse.

Steve the Owl

The police of Doraville, Georgia received an odd phone call from a local Waffle House. They were informed that an injured owl had made its way into the store. He was safely rescued and released to a nature center, where he made a full recovery and was named Steve.

Countless more stories have made headlines, like an employee chasing down a dine and dasher, a man making a comfortable house on the roof, and a man driving his car through the building on purpose. “It’s a good place to go eat at literally any time night or day,” said junior Christina Nguyen. She said that Waffle House is the spot that she and her friends go to whenever they just want a quick cheap bite, even though some weird stuff happens there. The love for Waffle House stretches to all generations, but teens are known to dine there often. Everyone knows that whenever they go, they may be in for a crazy story.
