I may have just gotten ripped off. Tell me, youthink, how much is reasonable to pay for a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast wrap with a side of grits? If you are familiar with La Casa de Waffle, how much would you think you would pay there for such a feast?
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:21:02 AM EST (GMT-5)
7 bucks
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:21:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know what grits are

La Casa de Waffle sounds like a nice place so I am going to guess at.....$10

Hmm. At the waffle house around my place (and note how this is southern california) I would say about 4.50 without tip or taxes.

Did you get anything to drink?

La Casa de Waffle is a fancy, Spanish way of saying Waffle House

Which is about as un-nice as it gets. Quick service, 24 hour breakfast, usually with wait-staff lacking teeth.

Ok well in that case I would say $5 then. How much did you pay?

No, no drink.

See, I paid $6.24. And it should be MORE expensive in California than in SC.

Sidenote, I didn't know Waffle Houses existed in California.

I can't tell you anything about the prices, but I do love me some grits.
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:23:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Its usually about 5.50 here in ATL. Not including taxes or tip. Or drink.
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:24:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
What concerns me is that the breakfast wrap itself was $3.75. I remember looking at it on the menu. I didn't check the price of grits, because they're grits. They shouldn't cost more than a $1.50-$2 max.

8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:24:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, it's not a waffle house per se as it is a greasy spoon diner. But it serves breakfast 24/7, so I call it a waffle house.

And hmm. That does seem expensive spoon.

P.S. and remember Southn Central is home to the world famous Roscoe's Chicken and waffles.

Never heard of it. It sounds like a winning combination, though.

Well, everything's kind of expensive where I live. I'd expect 6 or 7 for that.
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:26:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
Also, I'm a bit worried about the grits because they had this yellow goo on them. It looked like egg yolk. I ate it anyway, and it tasted fine, but it was rather odd looking...

What are grits?
8 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 8/4/06 - 9:27:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
Grits are hard to explain. It's a side dish that...hmm. Lemme go to wikipedia.

I'm kind of spoiled really, living in SC. Everything here is SO cheap compared to elsewhere in the country. When I went on my roadtrip I was amazed at how expensive everything is everywhere.

We stopped in Nebraska to get a camera at Wal-Mart after the one I'd brought got broken, but found the exact same camera I'd bought in a SC Wal-Mart was $8 more expensive at the Nebraska one.

It's a regional thing. Like how in Hawaiian food, they have pou as a side dish.
In most Asian countries, it's rice.
In most Latin countries, it's a form of bean.
in America, it's usually some sort of mashed potato.

I've never had grits. Maybe because they usually serve them with gravy and I can't eat that, as I'm a vegetarian.

They are QUITE weird.

If you've ever had cream of wheat, it's KIND of like that. But instead of being smooth and creamy, it's kind of gritty. And instead of adding sugar, you add salt. But yes, very weird.

Generally they're just eaten at breakfast, but a lot of places serve shrimp and grits or fish and grits, and it's delicious

Grody. I never eat grits with gravy.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I mostly hate gravy. Red-eye gravy is ok from time to time, but the rest is just bleh.

You do know that you can get veggie gravy?
