A must resturant

We have eaten fantastic pancakes at wonderful restaurants but at Magnolia's, they are the best pancakes ever!!! My husband had the ham and cheddar waffle which, was a special we loved it. We will certainly, visit again.

Very popular pancake specialty restaurant with prompt service of quality pancakes in a wide variety of styles. Crowded but enjoyable with rushed service. We had reservations and were able to be seated within a reasonable time but even with reservations, long lines require some waiting. That said, good food reasonable priced is still worth waiting for.

best pancakes on the planet...I don't even love pancakes in general but these are heaven. hash browns are good too as well as the house made sausage. Can't go wrong. I have eaten here many times and never had anything bad.

Need to get there early, but if you don't it is still worth the wait. The food is extremely delicious and the staff is absolutely wonderful.

Been here many times throughout the years. Their French toast and pancakes are very good. Eggs and hash just like every where else. I do not like that there are no substitutions. My husband and I like to trade the breakfast meats for fruit in other restaurants but here you cannot.

I love a good breakfast! I lived in San Antonio for about 3 years, but never had the pleasure of dining here. I was in town for the night and although the hotel I was staying at had free breakfast, I wanted to go out and try a new place. The place was packed, but the wait was only about... More

Ok, so I have had pancakes and french toast all over the county, BUT this was almost spiritual--no offense Jesus, but this food was amazing. Ok French Praline Banana nut breakfast is just breakfast, but I'm serious this was amazing food with a light syrup. If you go, go early as this place gets busy, however worth the wait. I... More

I have heard many rave reviews about the restaurant so decided to give it a try. One major reason was because they offer corned beef hash and eggs. Very few restaurants have that on the menu, and I really enjoy it. At 10:30 am on Thursday morning, there was a 15 to 25 minute wait. That was kind of surprising...doesn't... More

I ordered the bacon waffle, which was amazing. The place was packed and there was a wait to get in, but it didn't take that long-maybe ten minutes. Service was good and food came out quickly. No complaints and definitely would go back.
