I've been to Pancake House a few times with my family and it really does deliver. It's a lot like an IHOP, except it's owned, staffed, and patronized by local El Cajonians. It gets crowded on Sundays but they can still handle the crowds. We love supporting local businesses and this one makes it easy.

I love pancake house in el cajon. The breakfast is very good the portions are large and they usually have some great specials. The cowboy omelet is delicious. I have ordered the lunch their once and it was no so good. I have not tried their dinner so I cannot comment on it.
