If you go on a weekend or busy time at the university, expect a long wait. Food is typical diner type breakfast. Try the sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon honey. Very tasty.

Waited about 30 mins for a table on a Sun morning and then another hour after our order was taken. Sum total 2 hours for a breakfast that is no different than any other breakfast establishment in the US.

Saturday morning visit. Now admittedly the place was packed with about a 15 minute wait. Seated and our order was taken promptly, but then we waited 46 minutes for our food. Standard breakfast fare including eggs, hash browns, pancakes,sausage. Food finally arrived and it was...ALL cold and not particularly good. Didn’t send it back or complain as it was not worth the risk of another long wait. Coffee was good and our server was attentive and did his best but just could not overcome the long wait and mediocre food.More

This place has been an old friend since 1982 when I had a job in Lubbock. I once worked in the neighborhood and ate breakfast and lunch with them often. They are primarily in the breakfast business but have plenty of other items fit for...different times of day. It has always been privately owned and I believe it is still today. They are just across the street from Dennys and believe me Denny’s doesn’t have anything on them. My breakfast was made to order and they have fantastic biscuits. The serving time was very prompt and the wait staff cheerful and inviting. It sure was good to be able to visit with them again. I know they have been around since before the 1970 tornado where nothing but their bar stools were left. I hope they live on many more profitable years.More

Directly across the street from where we stayed! We were there mid morning I would think 9:45am and it was 30-45 min wait which was fine-if you are planning a busy day you may want to be the early bird! Food was delicious and service...very good and friendly.More

Charming, old-style ambience with prompt and friendly service. I had a club sandwich which was okay but nothing to write home about. Prices were reasonable.

We were visiting there for a wedding and tried the Pancake House. What a awesome place ! The folks there treated us as family and the food was super. We got it hot and correct. We went back 3 times and sent other family members...there. If we get back to Lubbock we will go back there for the great food and super staff. Keep up the good work.More

Every time I'm in Lubbock, Visit here for breakfast at least once - if not every day I'm in town. Simple breakfast foods that are made to order and cooked to perfection. Service is always friendly and the food is always quick. They have red...velvet pancakes that I have yet to find any competition.More

We were in search for a place like grandmas kitchen...after being deployed, and a very long drive we had read some great reviews and decided to stumbled in and give this place a try. We didn't know what kind of adventure we would find- but...wow! We were greeted by the friendlies people! Seated and from then on it was like we were part of the family! The food was amazing, One of the reviews mentioned cinnamon roll pancakes- OMG!!!! MUST GET!!!! When ever we are in Lubbock we will go back and just order those- wow! The coffee is amazing (we are a pretty picky about our coffee), the biscuits and gravy was on point! And the owner was even nice enough to come over and speak with us! Really great place! We will be going back!More

We went here 3 years ago when my son had to be in Lubbock for a conference and it is now our favorite place when we’re in town. My son now attends Texas Tech so we luckily get to come eat here at least a...couple times a year. The staff is great and the cinnamon roll pancakes are the bomb!!! It’s just a down-home place, nothing fancy but great people and food.More

I was seated promptly along with a full house of patrons. I started my breakfast with coffee, and it was good coffee. I ordered two eggs over medium, bacon and buttermilk pancakes. While waiting for my breakfast, I noticed that everything on the table was...clean! The expectation that we all should have but so often that is not the case. The hot suace bottle was clean on the outside and had been wiped off where the lid screws on (you where it gets all cruddy) had been cleaned. The salt and pepper had been emptied and been washed so that you could see the salt and the pepper inside. As my meal arrived I started to cut into my eggs, of which the waitress noticed they were not cooked correctly, she said she would get them fixed, even though I said it wasn't necessary. It was very refreshing to see someone that actually took ownership of her job in customer service. The experience at the Pancake House was how all restaurants should be.More

Old-school W TX/Panhandle breakfast jernt. Nice folks, heavy on the Jesus imagery, excellent carbs & fried. Super friendly, and they've maintained the same kitchen & floor staff for decades, which tends to speak well of management. Heads-up: *very popular* on TTU Game Days, so plan...accordingly.More

Went to the Pancake House for a morning breakfast meeting on a weekday morning. It was crowded but not full, and we were seated immediately. Service was speedy and friendly. Ordered an omelette, which was good but not particularly special. This seems like a good...place for a simple site down, family or friends breakfast.More
