BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Twenty four hour grits, hashbrowns and waffles may be coming to Biloxi's Point Cadet. Waffle House wants to build a restaurant on the southwest corner of First Street and Myrtle.

Biloxi officials say if construction is approved, the Myrtle Street restaurant would be first Waffle House to be built on pilings.
