For the past week, viral waffle sandwich Waffle House has dominated TikTok as users try the hack and share their reviews on the platform. In a video with over 3.6 million views, employee Tante Toro (@toroitich) didn’t hold back as she confronted users about the sandwich.
“Yes, the sandwich will cost you about $20, so stick with Texas Bacon Cheesesteak Melt or Texas Sausage, Egg and Cheese Melt,” she says in the clip.

The menu hack features a selection of meat pies, bacon, cheese and eggs that are sandwiched between two waffles to create a sandwich. Customization of the sandwich hack can skyrocket this cost.
According to a fast food pricing website, the Texas sausage, egg and cheese melt is $4.65, while the Texas bacon cheesesteak melt is $5.70. However, these prices may vary by location.
Aunt Toro’s video echoes the opinion of another Waffle House employee on TikTok, who also warned viewers who want to try the hack of the potential cost of customization.
Users in the comments section quoted a phrase from the Real Boston Richey song “Everybody” and shared their thoughts on the pricing.
“Don’t you think we’ll get money?” said one user.
“20 ain’t nothing so I’ll get 5,” commented another.
“I’m a billionaire when I’m this drunk,” shared a third user.
The Daily Dot contacted Waffle House via email and Aunt Toro via TikTok comment.
