My family has a bit of an obsessive habit when it comes to restaurants. We'll find one that we really love and then go there two or three times a week for a year. Then, we'll move on to the next one.

Our current obsession is Waffle House. We go to the Fort Collins location at least once a week. My girlfriend is especially obsessed.

When she came back from a trip and I picked her up from Denver International Airport, I said she could go anywhere she wanted.

I was expecting her to ask for one of Colorado's best restaurants, but instead, she asked to go to Waffle House in Firestone.

I know what you're thinking. Waffle House? Really?

Hear me out. Waffle House is more than just a place to get breakfast. It's a place where people come together. It's a place to talk about your day, and your plans, or just shoot the breeze. And the food is actually pretty good.

I will say that I completely understand that this is not the best restaurant in Northern Colorado. I am very aware of that.

Some of my favorites are The Colorado Room in Fort Collins, The Boot in Loveland, and Bad Daddy's Burger Bar in Johnstown.

I asked on Facebook, "If you could only go to one restaurant for the rest of your life, what restaurant would it be?"

Here is what you said.
