Officials here in Cincinnati have denied reports that a Waffle House will be moving into the old Masionette location over on Sixth Street.
“That’s nuts,” one city official said off record. “We could never support anything like that here downtown. It would draw too much attention. We like a quiet downtown.”
Waffle House is known for its egg dishes, peppered hash browns, cheese melt plates and other gourmet food.
“It would be nice to get a little culture back to Sixth Street, but getting a Waffle House here is a little out of our league,” said another city official – or he told me he was a city official. “We’re trying to get another Skyline Chili to move into that spot.”
Waffle House is a famous restaurant chain well known for being open 24/7. Most don’t even have locks on their doors.
“A 24/7 restaurant in the heart of downtown? You gotta be shitting me,” said a want-to-be city official. “There’s no way that could happen. “We gotta get out of here before the sun goes down, before those Over-the-Rhine folk start heading this way.”
A local crack dealer thinks a Waffle House downtown would be good for his business.
“Those mother-fuckin’ kids get trashed and show up at the old Waffle House to eat their fuckin’ hangovers away – know that I’m sayin’?” the crack dealer explained. “We can sell them some quality crack after they get done eatin’ their waffles – know what I’m sayin’? It would be a good thang for this mother-fuckin’ town all round – know what I’m sayin’?
Yes, we know what he’s saying, but at present, it looks like the old Maisonette location will be remaining vacant.
“White Castle is interested,” said a person I met walking down the sidewalk.
