I had the eggs Benedict w.two buttermilk pancakes.. eggs were perfectly cooked with some of the best hollandaise I've had. The pancakes were absolutely delish, their homemade syrup is sooo good. My bf had blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs both were great. We got there at 7 am and did not have... read more

Party of 4, arrived @9:30, waited 45". Portions are very generous, biscuits & gravy was good but had 2 request more gravy, 4 homemade biscuits, flaky & buttery. Calico hash, intriguing description pulled pork w/sweet potato, awesome. Omlette w/shrimp&avocado was amazing. Cinnamon french toast enough for 2 people. Worth the wait, will text when table is ready. Some people had... More

We came here based on tripadvisor reviews driving about 9miles from downtown San Antonio. Luckily I read other reviews and utilized the "no wait" app. When we got to the restaurant we were the next table to be seated (definitely utilize this app!!) wait staff is friendly and quick. Coffee is very good. Buckwheat pancakes were dark but not dense.... More

So, we were watching triple D on Food Network Saturday evening and this popped-up. We decided to go for breakfast the next morning - about a 75 minute drive. Arriving at 9:30 AM, there was already a 60-90 minute wait. We had the Sunday paper with us, so we were occupied....and they have the "NoWait" app so you can follow... More

First off... there was a long wait time but it was Sunday after church time so I was expecting it. Learned there's an app to get on the wait list before you get there so I will definitely try that next time. Once seated the service was great! Very friendly and polite. Restaurant was clean and I have absolutely no... More

This is a very well managed restaurant. It was very clean. It had the cleanest restaurant restroom I have been in. The server was friendly and gave her opinion on different dishes. The food came out quickly and was nice and hot. The iced tea was some of the best I have had, nice rich tea flavor. I found the... More

I went in expecting a good breakfast, the whole menu looked good. I ordered the Veggie Hash because it came with pancakes. The hash was good, not the best thing I've ever had, but good. The menu claims that they serve "the world's best pancakes." I mean, who is going to say they have the world's most average pancakes? These... More

The first, most important thing you need to know about this restaurant is that the wait is ridiculous. When I checked it was an hour and a half...that's the bad news. The good news is there is an app for that. Download "No Wait" and use it. The app allows you to get in line and check your progress without... More

I saw this place on Diners and Dives and decided to try it. I ordered the eggs benedict with crab and it was average. My niece ordered the chocolate chip pancakes and they were too sweet.

After waiting almost 1 hour to be served I guess the expectations for the pancakes got pretty high. I ordered some pecan pancakes and someone else ordered the banana pancakes. Both were a big disappointment. Little nuts in mine and the banana ones just had small pieces of banana on top. I guess it's an ok place...
