There were so many choices, wait....so many good choices to eat at this restaraunt. That being said make sure when you go, take your friends and order different things.There are so many crazy combinations with a mexican twist. You will not be dissappointed. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. And the atmosphe is very diverse and gives you a sense of community. There was quite a wait, but with the beautiful weather San Antonio usually has and the friendly enviornment, the wait was not that long at all. I recommend the pineapple upside down pancakes. These were some of the best pancakes I ever tasted. And I love me a good pancake.

... Will be deciding what to have for breakfast from the almost overwhelming selection. This may not be the fanciest place, but it is by far the best breakfast in the city.

We visited twice during our vacation. The food was good and obviously homemade. The staff is friendly and it was a great laid back environment.

Perfectly cooked hashbrowns are surprisingly difficult to find. They are almost never crispy and if they are crispy outside then they are raw inside, or overly greasy. Pancake Joe's hashbrowns are perfect, fluffy inside, crispy outside, well seasoned and not at all greasy. Outstanding job!

The pancakes are great, the eggs Benedict fantastic, the coffee is very solid, and the service is friendly and attentive. My coffee cup never went empty!

This place really deserves 4.5 stars instead of four, unfortunately that is not an option. My only complaints are the waffle while tasty, was not very crisp and the biscuits and gravy was just okay. I am quite picky about my biscuits and gravy but, the gravy was sparse and in my opinion, bland.

This place really is a gem though and worth a visit. Even the kids menu is great. Just get there early on the weekends because it does fill up quickly.

Amazing waffles and pancakes, forget that IHop chain, homemade strawberry banana waffles or cinnamon raisin French toast. Try the eggs Benedict with fat slabs of ham and lovely lemony Bernaise sauce covering the whole thing. The Ranch potatoes seasoned to perfection with onion and peppers are worth the trip alone. Go early on weekends to beat the crowds. We have become regulars.
