We go there at the right time, just about 1130. It took us 5 minutes to get a table. Service was quick and friendly. Food was great, bu the cakes were a little cooler than expected, but very good none the less. Price for 4 was about $50. We would return if the line was not too long. When we... More

My friends and I went here after we left the pub, and well we were very displeased. We sat there waiting, even after we were seated for 30 minutes, for someone to even get our drink orders. So we got up and went to IHOP down the street. Usually this establishment is great but no server even acknowledged us. They... More

After spending the day in Glen Rose it was back to East Texas for us. Wife started naming places in the metroplex & this one stood out to all of us. We had been hiking all day & had only a light lunch. Food was perfect. Waitress seemed a little rushed but the school year is winding down. So they... More

If you are looking for a wonderful breakfast (or any other time) restaurant, this is the place! It is touted as being one of the best restaurants in Fort Worth, and I completely understand why. I was there with coworkers and had just flown in, so my stomach was very tender, but the guys got HUGE meals. When I say... More

What a great find! The food was good and fast. I had a vegi omelet (that also came with 3 pancakes ) and it was wonderful! We also had a meat omelet, southern eggs Benedict and southern friend chicken. Everyone loved their meal. It was very filling!

It is obvious why this restaurant is so popular and will typically have a waiting line. Delicious food in huge quantities. We had the German pancake with lemon and powdered sugar and it was delicious. Oh, did I forget to mention the butter? They pour it on-literally. No waiting for a cold lump to melt and make your food cold.... More

Went here this morning and ordered a plate of hash browns with sausage gravy. It was Luke warm and the potatoes were rubbery. Worst part was the price. Extorted 15.00 from me. IHOP is less than a block away and that's where I recommend you go.
