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

Guy Fieri has featured the Dor-Stop on Dinners, Drive-In & Dive's and was absolutely correct to do so. Located in Dormont, PA outside of Greentree, PA, and less than 4 miles from I-376, this has been called & I totally agree, "the BEST breakfast in Pittsburgh." Its small size is a refreshing change from the "mega" chains & allows for... More

If you ever want the best pancakes (hotcakes) you'll ever have, go here and go early because this place fills up. The staff is always very nice and attentive the times that I've gone and the good has never disappointed me. I'm a sucker for their home fries and they have such a great selection of hotcakes. I usually get... More

These are the best homemade pancakes I have ever had...bar none. Try them with a side of sausage, hot or mild, and you will agree. Just an unbelievable meal for the money!!

By far this is our favorite place for breakfast. We first visited November 2014. The pumpkin stuffed french toast was awesome. This visit, my wife Teresa enjoyed the Egg Combo with Strawberry hotcakes and sausage. A wonderful combination. I enjoyed the fluffiest omelette I've ever had, their south of the border. The service is great. The atmosphere is great, family... More
