was conceived and founded by Joe Rogers Sr. and Tom Forkner. Rogers started in the restaurant business as a short-order cook in 1947 at the Toddle House in New Haven, Connecticut.
New Haven is also the home (though not the birthplace of) my favorite traitor, Benedict Arnold, as well as being the most dangerous city in the state. There are no Waffle Houses in Connecticut, the closest ones are in western Pennsylvania.
I’ll note that I like mine scattered, smothered, covered, capped, and country. TMC usually finds something else to do while I indulge myself, calling them “a heart attack on a plate.”
