Eating breakfast out can be a bit deflating. I love pancakes, eggs, bacon, and sausage, but I can also make them at home for a fraction of the price. As a result, I always look for something special when I find myself eating breakfast out. The German Pancake fits the bill. The restaurant itself is something of a Fort Worth... More

they are that good. I have tried to make them at home but it just isn't the same. I usually split the awesome breakfast tacos with a baby on the side. What a great, filling breakfast. I will say that I have had a couple of things on the breakfast menu that just were just not worth ordering. The pecan... More

From the build your own skillet to the pancakes to the friendly service, you will not be disappointed with your trip to Ol' South. My only regret is that I didn't leave room for their delicious looking desserts. Planning another trip very soon!

This place Will turn the snooty travelor off at first sight... BUT, if you can get past the outdated decor... You will find one of the best breakfast choices in Fort Worth! I gave 4/5 because both coffee cups were dirty with dried on food.

We found the restaurant on the IHG Dinning APP but it's worth writing about here. They have the most unique pancakes in the area. Lemon with powder sugar. We didn't think we would like them but I'll tell you here, these are fantastic.

I love coming here and getting the German Pancake Sampler. It gives you a chance to taste all of the flavors they offer! PLus their frog fries are delicious. Even when they are crowded at most you'll wait 30min to be seated. The wait staff is good at making sure your drinks stay filled and they will fix anything that... More

We stopped in "just to cool down" in July. Was going to have a glass of tea and go on our way. The hospitality here is so awesome, we stayed and had a sandwich. When waitress found out it was out 25th anniversary, here comes a huge crepe with real lemon and syrup and 2 forks. Totally complementary, to help... More

I've been coming here since I was a kid. This area of University Drive has changed a lot over the years, but Ol' South has kept true to its roots. You'll see lots of college students here studying while they eat too. Great coffee. The pancakes here are very good and extremely filling. Their signature German pancakes is a experience... More
