Damn good greasy spoon!

While visiting the Farmington area, breakfast at this establishment is a must! Great service, large and tasty portions prepared as you order it, and a neighborhood-friendly atmosphere...a must visit!

There are very few diners opened in Farmington on Sunday morning. Pancake Alley happens to be one of them. A driver stop food service was quick but slightly greasy and eggs were a little under cooked to liking. Prices were reasonable, a good local spot if you are in town for breakfast.

Good value, plenty of food. I had the chicken fried steak and eggs with a side of green chile. The hash browns were good and crispy, the eggs were cooked properly, and the chicken fried steak was a typical frozen variety from Shamrock, Sam's club, US Foods, whatever. The pancakes were average, I could taste imitation vanilla in the batter.... More

My wife and I wandered into Pancake Alley for Sunday breakfast about a month ago. She admitted to have never eaten there, and I had not eaten there since 1999. We have recommended the "breakfast experience" to many friends and family members, and have transformer extended an invitation for breakfast to a good friend for tomorrow. (We'll be there even...

We went here for breakfast mostly based on the TripAdvisor reviews. Our ratings were from "so-so" to "never again." The coffee is poor and the pancakes are OK. The chef that cooked our eggs did not cook them as ordered and the bacon was tasteless. Service was fine.

Pancake Alley is a classic breakfast - lunch diner that has large portions, and I have had many Club Sandwiches that left me full and satisfied.

There is nowhere in Farmington that can make pancakes like Pancake Alley. We come here every Sunday and are never disappointed. Every once in a while we do go somewhere else for our Sunday breakfast but we quickly remember why this is our place. The food is always delicious and cooked just as I want, and the service is great... More

I had a couple of breakfast here and the Green Chili is outstanding. That is a relly good way to start the day. The ambience may not look that good but the food is worth it.

I am also going to have to disagree with MANDA321, I have eaten there before and you are a terrible person, you disgraceful woman, I wish you didn't even have a husband. Since 2011, the restauraunt has gotten better thanks to the owners, they now have better waitress, better food, better prices, and they remodled the tile, the walls, so... More

We come here almost every Sunday and enjoy the food and service. The new owners are putting a lot of money back into the restaurant. Carne Adovada and Pancakes are my two favorites. Don't forget to ask for their chips and salsa that isn't on the menu. Eat Fresh Eat Local
