There is a strange phenomena. A chain franchise restaurant that really cares about it's community. The food is just plain wonderful and the service delightful.
OK, you have been to Denny's, you have been to Perkins, the Waffle House whatever pancake house and you say so what!
Well THE ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE, in the Chesterfield, Valley (a second shop opened recently somewhere in Ladue) is what. My kids from Fulshear (read Houston) are in town and they love the ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE almost as much as I do.
There is something about dozens of varieties of pancakes, dozens of waffles, every breakfast you can imagine, fresh made with the best of ingredients, served by wait staff who hustle, great coffee with real cream, and diet Pepsi. Couple that with an omelette that is full of any goodie you can dream of and is backed so that it is light and fluffy and you have a wonderful restaurant.
I hate restaurants that look dirty or shop worn. The ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE is at least 5 years old that I can remember and is as clean and fresh as if it opened last week. The restrooms are cleaner than the surgery suites at most hospitals, and the walls full of awards from local charities that the ORIGINAL has supported.
Did I mention that the price is unbelieveably cheap. Well it is.
MY ONLY COMPLAINT, PLEASE READ THIS "COMPLAINT," FOLKS AT THE ORIGINAL PANCAKE HOUSE!!!!! YOU CLOSE AT 2:30 IN THE AFTERNOON. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY OPEN FOR DINNER. I LOVE BREAKFAST FOR SUPPER!
