We stopped in for a quick bite before attending a function nearby. Nothing much appealing on the outside but we were extremely impressed with the young man who waited on us and seemingly most of the other customers. While it was not busy, the thing that most impressed us was the patience he showed with a table of disabled gentlemen.... More

Former IHOP building, turned into a pancake factory and the pancakes are delicious. Reasonably priced with a pretty good selection. I would recommend asking the server for the weekly specials. Enjoy, I usually do.

Friends from New Zealand insisted on getting real American pancakes so decided to drive to this place to give it a try. Was a bit nervous as it is off the beaten path and as tourists it took us 20 mins from Hollywood to get here - better be worth it! It was - packed and they still seated 11... More

What a fantastic, huge breakfast. The place was packed, we were worried about how slow the service might be. They were fast, everything was really good. I tried everybody's meal. Glad we found this place.

So my friend and I were hungry and we hadn't eaten all day. So we finally got something to eat around 4ish pm. We didn't want to go out the way cause we were riding uber so the pancake factory was in distance, and that's what we chose. It look like it used to be an old IHOP, but I... More

So my wife and I were going to eat at another place but the traffic was backed up and it would of taken an hour to get there. So what did we do? That's right, we turned to our fellow Yelpers and once again they got it correct! We absolutely love this place. Sarah had the sirloin steak tips. It... More

Went here on the Tripadvisor and Yelp thumbs up. I was not disappointed. The portions were very generous (couldn't finish it), food taste excellent, and cost extremely reasonable. I knew we hit the jack pot when the paramedics showed up enmass. Located in an old IHOP, you wont find Rooty Tooty fresh and Fruity here. Better. Absolutely the perfect stop... More
