Waffle House is a chain of sit-down restaurants, located primarily in the southern and southeastern United States, and headquartered in Norcross, Georgia. The Brothers Chaps have made several parodies and references to this establishment in the Homestar Runner body of work, in addition to eating there themselves. In fact, Matt Chapman said in the Run Devil Run Interview that Homestar Runner and a deal with Waffle House (or the Atlanta Braves) would go well together, to which Mike Chapman agreed, however, with "Waffle House or Wiffle Ball."
