    I've never had a bad experience with it.  That said, it's been ages since I've been there despite having one 5 miles from my house.  Always had a pretty decent breakfast though.  Hard to screw up eggs and sausage though.

    You can't spell CRAZY without R-AZ.

      I only had dinner there and was appalled.  Then again, it cannot POSSIBLY be as bad as the abomination called "Huddle House."

        My partner and I have Saturday breakfast at the local (Asheville) Huddle House weekly. Never had abominable food, never been hassled for being an out gay couple.

        The new owner installed a TV last week which was tuned to Fox, so we had an "uh-oh" moment. But the sound was all the way down and Christmas music was playing.

        We'll have to see what happens after the holidays...

          Regional cuisine, anyone?

            with good reason.
            Never could abide that crap.

            Now, good creamy cheese grits with shrimp, that's another story... but you won't get that at Crapper Barrel.
            Nor common decency or human kindness, either, apparently.

            War on "Christmas"???? Just try to find any resemblance to "Christ" in most modern, bible thumpin' snake kissin' so called "Christians". Praying aloud in public...yep, lots of that. Practicing love, charity and humility? Not so much.

      •  I love the Wiki entry on Huddle House: (5+ / 0-)
        In 2006, Huddle House was acquired by Allied Capital.[1] In 2009, Ares Capital acquired Allied Capital.[2] In 2012, Ares sold Huddle House to Sentinel Capital Partners.[3]
        Yea, I'm sure those investors' primary focus is on food quality.
