This place is always packed. Fair prices and decent service. I eat breakfast here every time I'm in town. Cinnamon rolls are good.

Not only is the food great but the owners and staff are down home friendly! From the super fresh hash browns to delicious pancakes and waffles, my wife's favorite is the strawberry, you can find your perfect breakfast. Excellent huevos rancheros and a broad selection of Mexican and Anglo foods round out a sound menu. Expect locals and a few... More

Great Food, Great Service, Super Diner! While in Alamogordo, NM on business, we decided to forgo the free hotel breakfast and try the WAFFLE & PANCAKE SHOPPE, right off U.S. 54 across from the hotels – it was a fantastic experience! Not only were the waitresses Super-Friendly and Personable, but they were extremely efficient quickly delivering plates and constantly re-filling... More

We came here after camping at White Sands last night, very hungry and in need of some hearty breakfast food. Waffle & Pancake Shoppe was the perfect spot. We got a western omelette and a chicken fried steak, both came with hash browns and toast. Good solid food. Cute greasy spoon kind of place. Friendly and welcoming staff and waiters.... More

On a road trip from Texas to Arizona, the wife, kids and I woke up hungry as marching soldiers. A quick check of AroundMe and the reviews of the Waffle and Pancake Shoppe were high (we would soon find out why). A tad-bit of deja vu and this mom-n-pop diner took me back to I was a kid growing up... More

Waffle & Pancake Shoppe is a small hole-in-the-wall locals place. It's hard to get a table, but worth the wait. It's your typical greasy spoon place with omelettes, biscuits and gravy with sausage or bacon (my favorite) and Mexican dishes too. I've had several things on the menu but I always go back to their biscuits and gravy.

Went there on a Sunday and waited an hour for a table (or group had 6). Server was very distracted. We were dismayed to find out that they were out of ham (for omelets or sandwiches) on a Sunday. But food was good when we got it, especially pancakes. We would go back, but probably not on a weekend. Much... More

The place was pretty busy when my boyfriend took me there; we ended up sitting at the bar that overlooks the "kitchen". The cooks were nice and friendly and made me laugh. The server was friendly and helpful. The food was good, as well as reasonably priced. I wouldn't attempt to go there on a weekend morning though again, they... More

Everything on menu is good. One problem when overcrowded will ask you to leave if you finish eating and just sitting down taking space.
