About This Quiz

Some of us were born in the South, others of us should have been born in the South, but all of us could do with some food from Waffle House every once in a while. Waffle House is purely comfort food for the Southerner in you, but how much of a Southerner are you actually?

Does a sausage, egg, and cheese grits bowl sound good to you, or does it sound totally nasty? Actually, do you even know what grits are? Does a grilled biscuit get your tummy rumbling, or does it leave you cold? Are you in the mood for pecan pie? And when was the last time you had a good cheesesteak omelet anyway?

If we were to ask you if you wanted some Papa Joes porkchop and eggs, would you be into it, or would you run for the hills? And when it comes to having a good T-Bone steak does it sound better if it comes with eggs and hashbrowns? The answer to all of these questions will let us know whether you are, or would be, comfortable in the deep south, or if you are more comfortable in a New York City Deli. Y'all let us know how you did.
