Most of the chain pancake houses are pretty much cookie cutter and mediocre. Uncle Bills adds high price to the mixture, along with servers who really either don't wish to work at a Pancake House or are trained to be diffident. The menu is standard, and while the Kingshighway location is "Famous" as a go to place in the City,... More

Uncle Bills is an interesting place! You may find a hole in your seat but the breakfast food is great! It is especially good after 12 pm! The chicken and waffles is cooked fresh every time and does take a little longer, the coffee is good and the prices are cheap!

Not so healthy breakfast food is always good for dinner, right? Not fancy, but a good place to drink coffee and visit. Always an odd cast of characters in the restaurant to make it interesting. Open all night.

HAVE BEEN THERE MANY TIMES. The pancakes were kind of odd. Eggs and bacon/sausage/biscuits were ok. The waitress was nice. May not be back any time soon. Just not that good and spent over $40 for 2 kids and 2 adults for a standard breakfast.

This location is extremely dirty. It is run down and filthy. There was a live mouse and a dead mouse in a lighting fixture in the seating area. Told the cashier ....all she said was it can't get down. OMG it got up there didn't it??? Please stay away until the owner cleans this place up!

Greasy, tasteless and expensive. Won't be back at all. For a group if 5 adults it was $100 for a Sunday breakfast. That wasn't getting anything great. Several of us left most of what we ordered on our plates. The food didn't taste good, it was very greasy.

My Dad was a musician, and when I got to my pre-teen years he had my roadie for him once in a while on near by gigs. And after sitting in a venue, for what seemed like forever, the band would begin the long drive home. The fondest memory was the breakfast in the wee hours of the night. And... More

We go there when we want omelets and pancakes for dinner. Usually quick to get in and out. Good service.

This place is a family favorite for birthday breakfast out with dad. Can't beat the my old standard...fried eggs, toast and bacon. The kids love the special birthday pancakes that custom decorated with whipped cream and sprinkles.

We eat breakfast at least 1-2 times a week. They have a wonderful breakfast minue. The lunch minue has different salads,sandwiches and full on dinners. If you have a late night they serve breakfast 24 hr. A day.
