Great breakfast but our waitress was the most fun part. She loved to interact with the customers and was a wealth of information. We were headed to Three Rivers and she told us all about the owners of the gift shop at the intersection leading to Three Rivers. She kept up the banter and served us well.

Another hidden gem, would drive past if you didn't know to look out for it. Car park was packed and so was the restaurant, although we were there on a Saturday morning. The food was good, the wait was about 10 minutes and worth it. Good menu lots of choice. Lovely friendly staff and greeters. Thanks Trip Advisor for the... More

Busy place. It was packed but a couple moved to a table for 2 so we could be seated. Had the breakfast burrito with jalapeno salsa. To die for. I still have enough for 2 more meals! Really reasonable prices. My hubby had biscuits& gravy for $3.60.

The menu is average, the food quality is okie, the service is good. It's just not very memorable. I was hoping for more speciality pancakes and was not expanding just different toppings.

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.

Thank kelmeans
