Its a creative, fun way to hang out with friends that are in high school or already graduated. Their mission is to reconnect, network, and to keep in-contact with our friends. They will be having gatherings at Waffle House every Wednesday, for the year. Event starts at 10:00pm. Invite as many friends as you like. This is the Columbia "Waffle House" next to the Shell Gas Station, on the corner of Highway 31 and Bear Creek Pike.

Asked for a Whopper with heavy everything, and I'll be damned if they didn't deliver it. It was practically picturesque when unwrapped, and had I not been so concerned about the local blue laws here in Tennessee, I would have photographed it. The resulting photo would have been so appealing it would have bordered on pornographic; opting for safety, I decided on a mere Yelp review to express my gratitude.

First time eating here yesterday as we were traveling through. It was delicious! Would certainly go back!
Although they have a full "Mexican for Tennesseans" style menu, get the tacos designed for Mexicans. Heck yeah! The Pastor Taco with the Pork Strips that are soaked in a heavenly marinade, seasoned, and then grilled to almost crispy, but tender and juicy was the showstopper! Wow! Wow! Wow! The tacos for Mexicans come with Pico and Guacamole. Redneck Gringos can have it just like Taco Bell with cheese and lettuce. These bits of pork heaven on soft Corn Tortillas with the guac and pico was awesome. Not to be overlooked was the Shredded Beef Taco with guac and pico served on a freshly fried corn tortilla was also Devine. The Carne Asada was good, but doesn't compare to the Pastor and Shredded Beef in terms of flavor. Prefer chicken? It was boring and the poultry lacked any flavor. Don't be dumb, eat a Mexican Taco served up as Pastor or Shredded Beef. You'll thank me.
My Favorite Mexican Restaurant in Columbia. The food is outstanding, hot and fresh. I am picky about my chips, theirs are the best. Prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality. The service was spot on !!

I eat here two or three times a month. The service is fast and friendly. The restaurant and restroom are kept really clean (always a sign of a good establishment), and the prices cannot be beat. I order in and I also order through the drive-through, and I've never had an issue. They also have mango-flavored tea which is good when mixed with another tea or soda (it's a little on the sweet side on its own). I like the bean burrito and the seven-layer burrito. The staff is really good about leaving off the sour cream or guacamole off the seven-layer when requested. The only burrito that I have had and didn't care for was the cheesy rice and bean burrito off the dollar menu. I didn't care for it because it because the Velveeta-tasting cheese overwhelmed the taste of everything else. *Vegetarian friendly**
I always go there anywhere between 11PM~2AM and I have always gotten superb service. The food is always exactly how I ordered it and the staff is very friendly. I usually order through the Taco Bell app since the free Locos Doritos Taco promo is still valid via mobile.

For all the Starbucks lovers out there, this local coffee stop in Columbia, TN will give you finally another choice. Super tasting cups of coffee (White Chocolate and regular Mochas). The Columbia Coffee Cafe has homemade pasteries, cakes, ice cream and sandwiches - made from scratch. When traveling near Maury Regional Hospital, the Shadybrook Theater, or anywhere south of Franklin TN, highly recommend the visit! Takes all cards. Great folks.

Great coffee, pastry, sandwich shop. Cute seating area that is super comfortable. Staff are extremely friendly. We had a latte, tea and breakfast sandwiches and they were all perfect.
I was extremely pleased with the customer service, ambience and coffee at Columbia Coffee Café. The inside was cozy and very nicely decorated, and my triple soy vanilla macchiato was much richer and tastier than the one I usually get at Starbucks. Highly recommend!

I just wanted to pop in and add an update. My wife and I have now been here more times than we can count and has become our go-to quick date night restaurant. The food is always spot on. The service staff is well trained in how to be a little more upscale and take care of their customers without rushing. The owners are always nice and take the time to speak with you for a minute to ensure your meal and experience is a good one. This local spot is simply a great example of how a small, family operated restaurant should be run and can be successful even if a little above the typical price range of the area.
If you want really good food, and a unique, non-chain experience, go to River Terrace. You will pay fine restaurant prices AND you will get fine, unique food! You can dress casual, just leave your NASCAR shirt and ball cap at home and you will be dressed fine. Nice, quiet atmosphere, and a great view. I had shrimp cocktail, Ribeye steak with Cajun shrimp Effoulette on top, asparagus, salad, and cheesecake, and drank a couple of Margaritas. Everything was prepared with a unique flare, and was fantastic. The staff is friendly and are at the table at the right time. Their biggest concern is that you are satisfied. Spend some extra money and have a nice experience at River Terrace.
We had a great taste of New Orleans during our travels! Cozy place for a date night! Crawfish étouffée was wonderful! Bread pudding yummy!

So hard to find great Mexican food these days. Stopped in this little place on the way through town on a road trip. The place is immaculately clean and the service top notch. The chorizo egg burrito had the perfect ratio and the fish taco is one of the best we have ever found. You will not be disappointed.
Came here while on a business trip and grabbed a quick bite with colleagues. A number of us were fairly new to the Columbia area and were recommended to eat here which turned out to be a great choice. Service was friendly and really fast even though the line was out the door. The one woman whom took our orders worked the cash register and the small dining room that is available to patrons whom eat inside. To-go is also an option, and is simply served in a bag with napkins and plasticware; they also do catering to local establishments. With six of us in our party we waited no less than 10 minutes to receive food and each of our tables received two bottles of salsa, the green one being hotter than the red sauce. Neither were particularly hot and I'm not sure if the sauce is made by them or simply delivered. The quality of ingredients was middle of the road and rather greasy, but tasty enough to warrant a visit there over Taco Bell any day. I ordered a veggie burrito and it was more than enough food for one, if you add the beans and rice that come as a side option, that could easily satisfy two people. Considering there aren't a lot of options in the area, this is a great local place to stop and enjoy a quick bite!
Our favorite place for super nachos! Their chips are so light, fresh and crisp. The toppings are delicious and plentiful and we really like the flavor of the ground beef. No one else makes nachos like they do!!

Great hibachi lunch! This is one of our frequent lunch spots. The relaxing atmosphere is a nice break in the middle of the work day. The service is great and our waitress is always nice. My favorite entree is the Hibachi filet. It comes with a salad with ginger dressing, soup, fried rice, vegetables, and the most amazing sauce. I love it so much it is difficult for me to order other things but I manage to sometimes. I've also had the hibachi chicken, the bento box, and many of their sushi rolls. Everything is always very good. The only suggestion I would have is a little less ginger dressing on the salad.
One of the best places to eat in columbia! Love the hibachi chicken. They have lots of fresh veggies in it, so good! Was a bit sad they got rid of the ginger sauce recently, stuff is addicting. Please bring it back. The teriyaki bento box is also delish. Little bit of everything if you can't decide or want variety. We love the spring rolls and I love the ginger dressing on the salad so refreshing.
Columbia's hidden treasure :) AMAZING food! They're super fast so its great for a short lunch break or for pick up/to go orders. The fried rice is perfect every time, along with the sushi & hibachi everything, the salad dressing, and the clear soup! haha highly recommended!!
