Ok I have eaten here a couple of times now. It I a great place all around. But the way people talk about it I thought it would be epic... I really have nothing negative to say the portion sizes were large the food was good even very good. But locally this place has a rep for being the best... More

Totally delicious gem here in Pittsburgh for breakfast. It's always very very busy but worth the wait. Services brisk but very efficient. Try any gourmet eggs Benedict's they make. Make sure to leave room for pie!

So when you get there you have to go in and sign in. It's not a very big place but it has that little hometown diner feeling. We went in the late afternoon and we had about a 15 minute wait. Once inside, the waitress and the other wait staff was great. They are constantly filling up your coffee. I... More

Located in Dormont, Pennsylvania, this restaurant was a find. We were able to park at the front door and walk in. We sat in a booth near a window. Dor-Stop has a retro feel with pictures and mementos from a past time. A Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives signed poster hangs on the wall with black and white photos of Pittsburgh... More

Awesome pancakes, got just plain pancakes and they were amazing! My wife got banana chocolate chip and they too were excellent. Very small cute place, seems to fill up fast due to such delicious food.

My only trip to the Dor-Stop was for breakfast and I heard that they were the best. I must have a different taste for pancakes. I like light and fluffy pancakes. These were very dense pancakes. Hit my stomach like a ton o bricks. Everything else...average.

I had the walnut french toast with scrambled eggs and sausage! The food was so good that I ordered a carryout breakfast meal for later! The service was OK but it did take a while to get the food , but it was all worth it once I saw the plate!

We went because I read from other travelers that they had a great breakfast menu and my husband loves pancakes. We were somewhat overwhelmed with the selection, but the waitresses and the diners were friendly and the food was tasty. My husband said they served the best pancakes he'd ever had! Believe me, that's a compliment coming from him. You'll... More

The Dor Stop is a restaurant that keeps on giving. It is located in the heart of Dormont PA and has been featured on Guy Fieri's Food Channel show. But, bottom line, they are excellent and exceed the hype. The service is always friendly, the different pancakes are the best I have ever eaten, much better than IHOP, and the... More
