I don't know how they do it!!

We went to Uncle Bill's pancake house after my grandson's indoor soccer game around the corner, and they sat 9 people with no problem. They food cam out as ordered, eggs, pancakes, bacon sausage, etc.in a reasonable amount of time, and it was all hot. The coffee was good, the service was good. The... read more

Uncle Bills was recommended by my car dealer service Dept, so my partner and I decided to try it. Disgusting greeting experience from "hostess." Totally unfriendly and revolting. Did not stay.

Uncle bills is a go-to when I'm craving food at a late hour since it's one of the only 24 hour restaurants in the area. Every time I go, the service is very fast. The service is usually at least decent. Great breakfast food and wifi!

Inside, this place looks low rent decor-wise and the food totally matched it this morning, New Year's Day 2016--it was genuinely awful. I can't ever recall liking a western omelette less than the one here. It didn't look anything like a normal omelette. I cannot for the life of me figure out how they managed to make it so big...

Eleven family members went to eat last Saturday morning to celebrate the holidays with family who won't be with us on Christmas. Waitresses are always so friendly, even when they have to work Christmas Day. Coffee was hot and the food was hit and really great! They can accommodate large groups easily and service is quick! Love to go here!

Usually good for breakfast, but gets busy after 8 AM on weekends, just like every other breakfast place in the area. Current operators have owned the place for over 20 years, and haven't spent a dime on upgrading the dated decor since then. Best to sit at a table, as the seat backs on the booths are wobbly, and the... More

Look you know they have to serve breakfast all the time. It's called A Pancake House! I live nearby and always enjoy a trip over to have breakfast for dinner. I've never had anything else. The pancakes are good and served with hot syrup so it's super runny and good. The food is above average and filling and pretty inexpensive... More

"It's Party Time Captain"-that was the response when breakfast was served. After a long night of drinking, it was music to my ears. great little breakfast place.

We had no idea what to expect walking into Uncle Bills. Seeing all of the accolades they had to be doing something right. Breakfast was wonderfully delicious. Thick crispy bacon, eggs perfectly over medium, pancakes. My husbands chicken fried steak was bigger than anything I had seen in a while. Entire menu is available 24 hrs a day so we... More

Like a trip down memory lane. Visited just for the pancakes! Light and fluffy, delicious just like I remember. Asked for crispy bacon but got burnt instead. Waitress very nice.
