We stumbled into Family House of Pancakes for breakfast while seeing what was around National City. We arrived around 9am on a Sunday and it was packed. I ordered the veggie burrito and my brother the seafood omelet. I could not believe the portions! Mine looked like a burrito log! But the food was quite good. My burrito was chalk-full... More

Anything that you order is delicious and super-sized!!!! The place is a little older but they are pumping breakfast real early and real good. If you are ever by National City you need to stop by and have breakfast. You will love it.

This restaurant is known for it's large portions. Although, the food tends to be bland at times... the portions are huge. I highly recommend their breakfast selection.

The staff is... More

If you are looking for a meal that will give you enough leftovers for another meal, then you've found the place. Large menu and breakfast served all day will satisfy anyone looking for comfort food. We always order a breakfast, the garden scramble is my favorite. One of the side options is pancakes, which are about eight inches in diameter... More

While doing business in National City we decided to have lunch. We used our GPS and had lots of choices. The GPS Called it "Jimmy's" but we found the place at the address listed as we followed the GPS's directions. We arrived about 12:45 and the first thing I noticed is that the place could use some fresh paint. A... More
