Very satisfying breakfast

I had a long day ahead of me and this one time meal kept me going all day long. The servings were very generous and for the price it was great. Nice little business, totally recommend if you're looking for something filling. I was able to finish my entire meal consisting of eggs, three pancakes and... read more

Found ourselves in Chula Vista just south of San Diego and asked the Tripadvisor App for a good breakfast near us. The Family House of Pancakes with reviews and directions was provided. Broadway is a busy street with all street parking spots full and the parking in the rear only had a couple of empty spots. The front of the... More

A must visit staff was excellent and friendly. The food was wonderful and most dishes can be shared, because they give you soooo much food. It was an excellent experience.

This place is a big family diner and the food is ok. I used to go here for breakfast but I have stopped because everything they offer has tons of American "cheese" in/on it. I have asked on several occasions for them to substitute another type of cheese (which I know they have because they are on sandwiches etc on... More

We had 9 people for breakfast and no problem.. Very busy place but the service was great. Had to wait for some people to show up and no rush from the wait staff....The food was plenty and great. I would fly all the back just for the biscuits and gray...not too much pepper and the fluffy biscuits were just to... More

Only open for breakfast, this place is a Chula Vista landmark...and for good reason! You will get the best breakfast anywhere at Family House. Omelets are beyond incredible and so are the pancakes and waffles. They also have a restaurant off the 805 in National City that is open into the evening serving the same incredible breakfast food plus good... More

Staying at the nearby Lowes Coronado Bay Resort (which is another story in itself!) I woke with a desire for an old time breakfast, like the ones I enjoyed in college back in the old days. I used Trip Advisor and found this restaurant which seemed to meet all of my requirements. This place was OFF THE CHART in all... More

This is our go-to spot for breakfast. Portions are large, the service is fast and friendly and the food is simply great. Large tasty pancakes, french toast and excellent breakfast burritos. On weekends, get there early and plan on waiting. My wife and I usually share something as there is plenty for both of us. Our youngest teenage daughter loves... More
