The Tastiest Items On The Waffle House Secret Menu

Whether you're in need of a filling meal after a long night out or you're going out for brunch with family and friends, the Waffle House restaurant chain has always been an establishment that has provided hearty, carb-heavy dishes such as hashbrownsburgers, and of course, waffles. If you do decide to visit Waffle House, you'll most certainly leave one of its restaurants with a full stomach. Regardless of whether you're there for breakfast, lunch, or brunch, there's something for everyone on the waffle house menu.

But what about what's not on the Waffle House menu? Yes, you can find all the waffles that you would ever need on the menu, in addition to many other menu items.  However, like many other restaurants, cafes, and fast food joints, Waffle House has its own secret menu. While it's not as extensive as the Starbucks secret menu, the secret items that Waffle House offers are just as good as its more popular menu items. So, the next time you decide to venture out to Waffle House, it's best to do so with a little more knowledge at your disposal, particularly regarding Waffle House's more covert menu items. 

Double D's

Which breakfast foods begin with the letter D? Donuts, Dutch baby pancakes, and one of the secret menu items you can get at Waffle House: Double D's. No, unfortunately, you can't get donuts from the Waffle House, and though this item isn't sweet, it's still quite delicious, and it's a great breakfast option. 

The Double D's secret menu item consists of two sunny-side-up eggs that are served on top of two ringed hashbrowns. Several of the egg-centric items on the Waffle House menu are scrambled, so this secret menu item puts a whole new spin on many of the typical egg meals you can find at the restaurant.

The Waffle House menu offers numerous egg dishes (like omelets) as well as several different hash brown meals. The variety of hashbrown bowls on the menu at Waffle House allow you to add scrambled eggs to your bowl, but the Double D's item allows you to go further with your egg and hashbrown cravings. 

Why limit yourself to just scrambled eggs the next time you're at the Waffle House? Instead, try ordering this savory, potato-and-egg delight. Simply ask your waiter if the cooks are willing to make it for you. If they are, then you're in for a tasty breakfast! 

Arnold Palmer

When you glance at the Waffle House beverage menu, you'll find a whole bunch of different drinks that you can enjoy. Waffle House offers all the drinks you could possibly want with your freshly made breakfast: Coffee, chocolate milk, sodas, teas, and lemonades. Even within these items, there are a large variety of drinks that you can order. You can customize the size as well as choose between options such as sweetened and unsweetened iced tea. The chefs may even add a nice slice of lemon onto the drink to make you feel a little bit more fancy.

But sometimes, you might be in the mood for a classic Arnold Palmer. While it's not a beverage that you can typically find on the Waffle House menu, it is, indeed, a highly refreshing drink. The Arnold Palmer on the Waffle House secret menu is a combination of the Waffle House's Minute Maid lemonade and Alice's Iced Tea, which can be ordered sweetened or unsweetened. 

The Arnold Palmer is a sweet yet tart, classic beverage that goes well with a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon, as well as a cheeseburger or even any of the other secret menu items at Waffle House. Sure, you could order a regular lemonade or an iced tea, but if you don't have to choose between the two, then why would you?

Apple Cinnamon Waffles

The Waffle House menu offers four different waffle flavors: Chocolate chip, original, pecan, and peanut butter chip. These certainly cover a lot of the waffle bases; however, it doesn't give you much to work with in terms of your waffle options. There are multiple secret menu items you can order from this brunch restaurant. Some waffle diners feature fruit-flavored waffles and pancakes, offering them in flavors like blueberry or strawberry. While these are not available at Waffle House, you can find a fruit-flavored option on the Waffle House secret menu. 

Waffle House originally sold the apple cinnamon waffles, though they were later discontinued it (via Twitter). It was a beloved flavor, and there are many people online who are asking the brand to bring them back. Although, they might still be available: Ask your server for a plate of cinnamon apple waffles, and yes, there's a chance they may not know what you're talking about, but there's also the possibility that they will, and you will get to try that sweet, incredible taste of apple cinnamon goodness.

Waffle Sandwich

Waffles are good, and sandwiches are good, too. How about a waffle sandwich? The regular Waffle House menu features both sandwiches AND waffles, but it doesn't offer any sandwiches made OUT of waffles. Fortunately, you can get a combination of the two fantastic foods, even though it doesn't appear on their traditional menu. You can also choose your own fillings based on what you like in your sandwiches.

There are numerous customer-customized sandwich creations on the Waffle House Instagram page, including a bacon, egg, and cheese filling stuffed between two freshly made waffles. This is a more exciting way to eat your breakfast, and a tastier one too!

You can also find a Tik Tok video that reveals the behind-the-scenes process of making these secret menu sandwiches: One employee on the website uses sausage, egg, cheese, bacon, and a waffle to make a triple-decker sandwich.

 No matter how you want your sandwich, as long as it consists of the waffle house ingredients and menu items, it seems like they can make it. So if you want a bacon, egg, and cheese waffle sandwich, that may not be out of the question, even if it's not on the menu.

Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Waffle

Who doesn't love the fantastic combination of chocolate and peanut butter? It works well in numerous different candies, like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, as well as sweet treats like ice cream sundaes. So why wouldn't it work in a waffle? The answer is that it does work and it is actually an order that many people like to get when they go to Waffle House. While you can't get Reese's Puffs cereal or the actual candy on your waffles, you can get a chocolate and peanut butter flavored waffle from the breakfast restaurant — all you have to do is ask.

A Waffle House waffle topped with chocolate chips and peanut butter chips is nothing to sneeze at. In response to being asked if Waffle House carries a white and dark chocolate chip waffle on its menu, the company's Twitter account said no, but suggested that the user who asked the question should try out this sweet combination instead. We reckon that the fluffy nature of the waffle paired with the peanut butter and chocolate chips would be incredibly rich, nutty, and delicious, so the next time you find yourself craving some chocolate and peanut butter and you're at a Waffle House, we suggest you try this out.

Sausage, Egg & Cheese on Raisin Toast

You can put a lot of things on toast; putting avocado, butter, jams, granola and even nuts on toast makes for a hearty, filling breakfast. Waffle House offers many different types of bread (and toast), including white bread, wheat bread, Texas Toast, and even raisin bread. The raisin bread at Waffle House is incredibly delicious, and it's used in this secret menu item: It's not really toast, it's more a sandwich made with raisin toast. But it's just as good, and best of all, it makes for a filling, complete breakfast.

If you want a meal that is a step above regular toast or even a regular sandwich, you can get the Sausage Egg & Cheese sandwich on Grilled Raisin Toast, which contains exactly what the name suggests. You can find videos on Instagram showcasing how this custom sandwich is prepared: The eggs and sausage are prepared to perfection, and the toast is slathered with a generous amount of butter. 

This sandwich is a wonderful, unique way to have your breakfast, brunch, or even dinner, and it is filled with everything you could ever want. If it isn't, you can ask for more add-ins, like bacon, so we highly suggest you order this the next time you're at Waffle House.

Sugar Free Syrup

Whether you're having a stack of pancakes or waffles, your plate isn't complete without all the right toppings. And whether your favorite toppings include butter, fresh pecans, or even extra chocolate chips, you can find all of these at Waffle House. Another common topping you can find at this restaurant chain is, of course, syrup. 

Syrup, in general, is sweet and sticky: It's a classic condiment to add to a stack of breakfast waffles and pancakes. But some people find that the syrup is a little too sweet or contains too much sugar for them to eat without feeling sick. Fortunately, there's a solution for that at the Waffle House.

If you've ever wanted to have syrup with your pancakes but don't want a massive hit of sugar, Waffle House provides an option that has much less sugar than your typical syrup. Waffle House posted under the #WhatYouDontTellCustomers on Twitter and stated that its sugar-free syrup tastes just as good as the regular syrup. 

If you don't usually put syrup on your waffles because your tastes aren't suited to additional sugar, then the sugar-free option is a great way to get the same incredible syrupy goodness that is so commonly a part of breakfast foods.

Peanut Butter Pecan Waffle

There may only be four different flavors of waffles on the official Waffle House menu, but there is a lot you can do with those four flavors. The original waffles are good, albeit a little basic for people who like something sweet added to their breakfast. That's where the pecan, chocolate chip, and peanut butter waffles come in — all fantastic in their own right, but sometimes, you don't just want one of these flavors. Sometimes you want to combine two of Waffle House's tasty flavors together.

One example of this is the peanut butter and pecan flavors, which when paired together, make for a pretty delicious, nutty-tasting waffle. A review on Tripadvisor agrees that this waffle tastes great, and unlike some of the waffles you can get at IHOP, is served in reasonable portions at reasonable prices. Unless you're allergic to pecans or peanut butter, the next time you're at a Waffle House, you may want to see if you can order this nut-filled waffle. You'll be in for a yummy, fluffy treat.

The Heartattack

If you go to Waffle House, you might not be in the mood for the healthiest breakfast. There are several decadent breakfast and lunch options to choose from at Waffle House, and if you're in the mood for an indulgent breakfast, then these items are perfect for you. However, when a secret menu item is given the name "The Heart Attack," we can't help but feel a little bit worried about what we're getting ourselves into at first, especially considering the history of other foods and locations named Heart Attack. While this dish doesn't look the prettiest, there are numerous Waffle House lovers who will want to dig into this incredibly delicious item. 

The Heart Attack is made of a cheesy slice of Texas toast that is topped with a prepared burger and round hash browns. After cooking these items, a cook then puts gravy on half the burger, along with some chili on the other half. We're not quite sure if this is a breakfast food, a lunch dish, or even both, although chances are, once you've tried "The Heart Attack," you'll be enjoying it far too much to care. If you're curious about this Waffle House secret menu item, then go for it: Just order at your own risk.

Fruity Pebble Waffle

The final item on this secret menu list may surprise you, though it shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone. It's another kind of waffle, and like the four other waffles you can find on the Waffle House menu, this secret menu item is sweet, delicious, and crisp. This secret menu item is also very colorful. While it may not be available at every single Waffle House location, that doesn't mean you shouldn't ask about it: It's a crunchy, rainbow-colored way to enjoy your breakfast waffles. 

One Reddit user posted a picture of a Fruity Pebble Waffle they had ordered at Waffle House. It's made up of an original Waffle House waffle topped with, you guessed it, Fruity Pebbles cereal. In the pictures, the dish is served with a helping of syrup. So, if you do happen to get your hands (and forks!) on one of these, then you're in for a sweet, sensational meal. 

And while it's possible that the Waffle House you venture out to may not have Fruity Pebbles on hand, it never hurts to ask the cooks if they can make this item or any of the other secret menu items for you.

The Waffle Burger

There's a lot you can do with a waffle. You can add chocolate chips or fruit to liven up the breakfast or sprinkle powdered sugar on top to make it taste a bit sweeter. You can also utilize waffles as the base for some fantastic food creations. The breakfast carb can make hearty breakfast sandwiches, cakes, or even ice cream sandwiches. In general, waffles are pretty versatile, so it comes as no surprise that the customers and cooks at the Waffle House have been able to create some pretty interesting secret menu items with its namesake food.

When you contemplate using a waffle as a sort of sandwiching bread, you might not think to use it for a hamburger. However, at the Waffle House, some customers have been able to get waffle burgers of their very own (via Reddit), filled with meat, tomato, lettuce, and cheese — and pecans, depending on which waffles you ask for. Waffles aren't the healthiest food out there, and neither is a giant waffle hamburger. But if you were thinking about getting an item like this to share with family and friends or save as leftovers, you'll find yourself with a filling secret menu item.

Waffle Taco

Tacos, no matter where you get them from, are supposed to be delicious. Whether it's filled with lettuce, beef, cheese, chicken, eggs, or even bacon, when done right, a taco is a great meal to feast upon, no matter what time of day it is. We've mentioned before that waffles can be used to create many different dishes, including hamburgers, sandwiches, or sweet desserts. You can probably see where this is going: If you're looking for a waffle-based taco, you can find it on the Waffle House secret menu.

Not only are the waffle tacos that you can get from the restaurant extremely delicious, but they are super customizable, as well. Some people might want lunch or dinner ingredients like cheese, lettuce, and meat inside their taco (via Twitter). You can also concoct a breakfast taco, filling your waffle with bacon, eggs, and whatever else you want to add (via Twitter). No matter what you choose to fill your waffle taco with, now you have a way to eat a Taco Tuesday meal even if it's early in the morning.

Chocolate Chip Pecan Waffle

We've talked about combining the Waffle House waffle flavors before. If you combine the chocolate and peanut butter chip flavors, then you'll be met with a deliciously sweet waffle. The same can be said about the peanut butter pecan waffle, but what about a chocolate chip pecan waffle? The chocolate-pecan pairing isn't anything new and is actually something that many people enjoy in sweets like cookies or pie. So why not take that incredible pairing and add it to a waffle? Just like all of the other delicious flavor combinations, you can find this flavor on the secret menu at the Waffle House.

The next time that you're at a Waffle House and want a chocolate chip and pecan waffle, ask your server if they are able to combine the two flavors for you. You'll be met with a delicious, delightful waffle (via Tripadvisor). We can see how the sweet, rich flavor of chocolate chips would complement the nutty pecans. Like all of the Waffle House secret menu items, this won't show up on any of the printed menus within the restaurants, but feel free to ask about it the next time you are there.
