WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. -- When a man found the only worker at an empty South Carolina Waffle House asleep, he took his meal into his own hands.
On Facebook , Alex Bowen chronicled with selfies how he made his own double Texas bacon cheese steak melt at the famous Southern 24-7 diner around 2 a.m. Thursday.
Bowen says on Facebook he waited 10 minutes, then cooked his meal and "even scraped the grill when I was done."
Bowen's photos showed him with the sleeping worker, frying bacon and putting the sandwich together.
After good-natured kidding about stealing the sandwich, Bowen even posted a selfie returning to pay for his meal.
Waffle House said in a statement it was impressed with Bowen's cooking skills but customers should never go behind the counter for safety reasons
