About This Quiz

You can tell a lot about a person by something as simple as how they behave in a restaurant. At an iconic restaurant like Waffle House, everything from the food you order to the songs you choose on the jukebox will tell us something about you. Once we have your personality figured out, we'll take that information and pair you up with a Southern name that fits you to a T. 

For example, if the staff at your local Waffle House has your picture on file and has asked you to vacate the premises on a number of occasions, a name like Huck would seem to be an excellent match for your propensity for finding trouble. If your meals consist of the highest calorie choices on the menu and you tend to leave your booth looking like a tornado touched down nearby, we'll be even more confident in our decision.

On the other hand, maybe you're more of a Southern belle. If you're most likely to walk into a Waffle House on Sunday morning with a group from the church and your food choices are a bit more dainty, a name like Magnolia might be an option. If you refer to everyone as "sweetheart," then that might just seal the deal.

"No Shirt, No Shoes, No Knuckleheads." Can we take your order, darlin'?
