    Emails to and from Waffel House
    Ms Murner

    Thanks for the info . No members of our organization will be eating at your Restaurants anymore.
    You should know we are the good guys we have been checked by the FBI and state.
    Trained with fire arms . and less likely to break any law than other citizens.
    Your stores have good food and service and will be missed by our members.

    Do they post the 3006 sigh? I haven't been to a Waffle House in a long time. I usually go to IHOP which has no restrictions.

    I can't say I have EVER seen a sign in compliance with 30.06 anywhere.

    So, unless a Manager for some reason feels compelled to let you know they do not allow concealed carry, it's another case of throwing it against the wall and see what sticks. Don't cause a problem, but don't stick. :cool:

    the waffle house that I was in has a Ghostbuster type sign in the second set of doors you have to go into.

    I have been in waffle house's in Va. Ark. and Tenn. and open carried in the one in Va. with no problems.

    So I would say you can CC in there as concealed is concealed.

    Yep, the only legal sign in Texas is the 30.06 sign of course, and there are some specific regulations on the sizing of the letters, etc:

    http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/administration/crime_records/chl/signposting.htm

    Technically, if they don't have the proper 30.06 sign, you can still carry in a business where they may not like it. The only catch is that, if someone sees you printing and the manager asks you to leave, you have to otherwise you can be charged with trespassing. I say carry anyways if there is no 30.06 sign, and leave if asked to. Even if the manager puts up a big fuss about it, you still have not committed a legal offense so there is nothing they can do except ask you to leave.

    Maybe you should inquire specifically about licensed armed citizens, if you really want to know.

    I avoid Waffle House because a) their hash browns are fake freeze-dried and b) they get robbed a lot and there's never a good exit or any good cover.

    LOL, I always find it funny when people complain about not being able to carry in places with really crappy food!! :rofl:

    I endeavor not to eat in such places and some of y'all are fighting to eat there. Holy smokes!

    Yeah, Waffle House isn't going to ruin my day. If it was like Dan's Hamburgers, or Kirbey Lane, then that'd suck.
