Pick any two
Waffle House restaurants at random – say, Waffle House #668 (Forrest City, AR),
or Waffle House #1894 (Mt. Sterling, KY) - and you will find a cook behind the

We learned a long time ago that when traveling, stepping away from tourist areas and seeking out restaurants where locals eat, usually leads to an excellent, home cooked style meal.

Hotel restaurants tend to be hit and miss. They have a
captive audience, so to speak, and depending on the place, you may be
pleasantly surprised, or downright furious at what you get. When you stay in a
hotel, and either can't or don't want to travel outside the building to eat,
you're stuck with what the hotel has to offer. Fortunately, for guests at the Houston
Marriott Westchase on the west side of Houston, the Republic Restaurant is a
great place to eat.
