The physically closest is at the Dumfries exit of I-95 on State Route
but service there is variable. For a better bet, keep on keepin on
to Fredericksburg and try the one on U.S.17 north of town at exit 133.
It's the traditional "postage stamp" plan-o-gram Waffle House with
good food and good service.
I went to the one at exit 130 a couple weeks ago and it was OK, too,
but it's the new open-air layout and has a different atmosphere.
Plus, the poor old waitress was getting weeded with only 3 tables
including me; she was at the end of a double shift I think.
We need to picket the W.H. headquarters and DEMAND that they open
up restaurants in the D.C. area! I mean, our slimy politicians need
to eat also, you know! This is vital to our national security!!
I'll second that.
I posted an account of a "bad food slow" experience at the Dumb-fries WH
a couple months back. Just had a great one at a Richmond (Broad Street)
