“a bit overpriced but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

One of my favorite breakfast restaurants, but the portions are not huge, and the extras add up. New menu has removed some favorites, but it's still a solid breakfast spot. Usually very crowded. Be prepared to wait a bit.

This is a great Dallas restaurant with consistently quality food and a lovely location and ambiance. I highly recomend this restaurant for their Pancakes and their corn beef hash.

We have been searching for brunch options and found this in August. We really enjoyed pancakes and some good bacon for a change!

“Favorite Breakfast In Dallas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

We try to always eat at The Orginal Pancake House when in Dallas. Great traditional breakfasts with fresh squeezed OJ (yum)! Love "The Dutch Boy", Buttermilk pancakes, Omelettes & crepes. Thick sliced bacon, honey smoked ham OMG! Service can be a bit slow because this place is SO POPULAR! It is always slammed, so call ahead to put your name on the waiting list and don't be late, as there will be about a dozen people waiting. It's worth the wait, but why wait when you can call ahead. Has lunch items too!
