After driving overnight from Cincinnati our group of sixteen needed a breakfast stop before entering Myrtle Beach. We stumbled upon Mr. Waffles in Conway, a half hour or so outside of our destination. The restaurant doesn’t look that great on the outside and we nearly decided to head elsewhere, but with a group this large we figured we better take our seats rather than risk running into a wait at another restaurant.
Once inside we were greeted by our server, Gloria, who also happens to be one of the owners of the restaurant. The other owner is her husband James who works the kitchen. This truly is one of those small diners where the owners do all the work, something that is hard to find today. Gloria actually called her daughter and son-in-law to stop by and help out with our large group.
The breakfast menu is very lengthy and super cheap! I went with the single waffle combo which came with a choice of meat and potato for under $5. The single waffle is actually two waffles (the second is hidden underneath in my photo), and they were pretty tasty. This is not gourmet food by any stretch, but it is a very affordable and tasty breakfast food. Gloria was very friendly and accommodating. I wouldn’t hesitate to stop here again on future trips to Myrtle Beach. My only complaint would be the number of smokers in the restaurant, but that is something you run into in tiny diners such as this one.
