No biscuits, no gravy, my over medium eggs looked like half of the egg whites had been used for someone else's egg white only egg dishes. $17 versus $12 for Perkins' Tremendous-12 Breakfast. Coffee $2.24 for 4oz mug!!!! Too many better places for breakfast.

I was excepting a menu full of asll different types of pancakes. It was limited. the most common type was not listed bananna /strawberry pancakes. The services was slow, even for a Saturday with a waiting line. No big rush to go back but I would.

I had forgotten about this place, since I've been out of Charlotte for so long. While completing reviews for other spots that I visited during a recent conference, this one popped up. I used to eat here often when I worked as a travel RN at Presbyterian. I've been through their menu many times, and haven't had a single thing... More

If you like breakfast, including eggs cooked to perfection, pancakes, thick bacon, bold coffee, and great service, I would highly recommend "The Original." Absolutely the best breakfast place we've eaten at, worldwide. Nice folks too.

We have dined at the Original Pancake house for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The crowds tend to thin out the later in the day you go. The omelets are huge and you get a side of pancakes to go with it. My favorite is the grilled chicken, spinach, and feta omelet. This is a family favorite when we want breakfast... More

The food here is great and quite reasonable in cost! If you drive by there is ALWAYS a wait, but do not let that bother you! The food and atmosphere is worth the wait-I assure you of this!
