Description: This full-service, breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant, owned & operated by the Benitez family has served travelers to Moreno Valley, and locals, for over 15 years. Their phone number is 951-485-1240 but there is no internet site for them. They serve beer and offer take out. They have the best pancakes in the whole city of Moreno Valley, even superior to the IHOP in town. They share the property with a Holiday Inn Express and are close to other motels and near freeway interchanges. They deserve to be listed on TripAdvisor as a suitable eatery for locals and visitors alike. Thanks. MonkeyOnTheWing (Michael McCoy)

“Best flapjacks in town, at Brandon's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Known to locals as the former Millie's, Brandon's now serves motel guests next door, Moreno Valley civic clubs and various locals hungry for Ameri- can and Mexican food. Breakfast is served all day and their amazing, skillet-sized Special Flapjacks are superior to any in town, made with mixed flour, melt-in-your-mouth batters and having a pourous, syrup-absorbing 'skin', rather than those leathery ones from IHOP.

Brandon's service is very friendly and swift. The restrooms and parking are adequate. It is close to the Perris Blvd interchange off State Frwy 60. There is a small gift shop near the door. Beer and wine are served. Lunch and dinner offerings are fresh and hearty, and the restaurant is known for its 'gigantuan' portions.

Bottom line: Brandon's is very accom- modating to all tastes at all times despite being next door to a motel. No surprises here except for overall quality and service being Very Good.
