While it’s hard to believe, some places in this country do not have a Waffle House® Restaurant.
San Antonio, Texas, College Station, Texas, and Oxford, Miss., do not have a yellow sign glowing, yet. But these hamlets are a haven for Waffle House fans who have generated thousands of requests for Waffle House to open up there.
To reward these fans until a Waffle House is built, the restaurant chain announced Saturday it will be popping up in these locations to mark the 2019 National Waffle Week and rewarding the citizens with free Waffle House food.
“Even without a restaurant nearby, these fans have proven themselves as worthy to become members of the Waffle Nation,” said Niki Patel, marketing coordinator for Waffle House, Inc. “We are excited to bring a taste of Waffle House to these communities during National Waffle Week.”
Here is the schedule for the Waffle House pop up events during National Waffle Week:
September 3, 2019 – San Antonio, Texas

In addition, Waffle House will reward students of Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, Ga., with a food truck pop-up on Friday, September 6 from 11 am – 1 pm.
National Waffle Week runs the first week of September and began more than 20 years ago to celebrate the wonderful breakfast staple. Waffle House celebrates this week nationwide with the return of the Blueberry Waffle and special events inside the restaurants.
