This place has been around forever and has mostly stayed the same. Good food- especially breakfast. And even better service!

After one visit will be the only place to have breakfast when in Lubbock. Even though we didn't know a sole outside of our group, we immediately felt welcome. The staff makes you feel like they have known you for years. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. We waited for 30 minutes and it was worth... More

Had a tough week and decided to treat myself to pancakes. I found this place and was pleasantly rewarded. The food was good, fast and inexpensive. More importantly the staff made everyone feel like they were eating with friends. I enjoyed watching the interactions between all involved. Reminded me of days gone by at grandma's house.

We enjoyed our visit to the Pancake House. The friendly atmosphere was great, as well as the food! The staff were wonderful and were very prompt with service. This family owned business is a wonderful treat for everyone! Go have a great breakfast, lunch or dinner with them! I promise you will enjoy it!

My understanding is that Tech students and locals practically consider this place an institution. The decor shows that this place has been around awhile and that's a compliment, not a complaint. It's absolutely packed on Saturday and Sunday mornings so be prepared for a wait (which is 20 minutes at most based on my experience). Pancake House services basic Americana... More

This place has a friendly, home like atmosphere and the food is great! Our server was very pleasant and checked on us often. They have a red velvet "sweet roll" that looked delicious but then we remember how good the biscuits are! Can't wait to visit again when we're back in Lubbock!

The food was good, but the wait was rather long for it being late in the evening and the place was empty. Our waiter was sick, coughing and probably running a fever and looked like he wanted to die. The manager should have pulled him off, sent him home and not let him serve customers but they didn't. As a... More

This is a very good place to get some breakfast. One of my favorites. The prices are extremely reasonable and food is very good. This is not a fancy joint, but they are very good at what they do.

This place looks like it's out of the 1970s or earlier minus the smoke. The pancakes are amazing. Breakfast is cheap and so tasty. The staff is quick and efficient. I love trying a new type of pancake when I'm there- red velvet, sweet potato, funfetti, and more! Highly recommend this sweet spot!

Thank Daniel S
