Waffles are perhaps the most perfect breakfast food ever created.
It does not matter if they are small, flat and crisp or big, fully and soft, what is important is how they are served. From shredded carrots and raisin, to chicken wings and maple syrup, these Waffle Houses in the Midwest are serving up some of the best waffles around.
Tasty Waffle: Romeoville, Illinois

One of their most popular dishes on their menu is their Carrot Cake Waffle which features shredded carrots, chopped walnuts, raisins and cream cheese all combined into a delectable dish. If that is a little too “outside of the box” for you, try one of the other varieties that include Cinnamon Apple, a lovely Banana Nut option, or even their popular Bacon Waffle, which includes bits of bacon mixed into the batter for a salty and savory flavor added to your dish.
