I eat at Waffle Houses all over the south. The employees are always so friendly and look like the love working for WH. The museum was a culmination of many years of WH experiences.

An absolute, but hours open are restrictive. I enjoyed learning more history about Waffle House and their 1st location in Avondale Estates.

You better call their corporate office or email them. Unless you have a large group and schedule an opening, I would doubt that they would be open. It is rare that they are open by chance. That would be my suggestion.
