We ate here over the weekend - its right down the street from the Intercontinental Hotel. Had great reviews so we figured lets give it a try. I had the 2X2X3 combo which was 2 pieces of bacon, 2 eggs and 3 pancakes. Can't beat the price too. I also ordered the orange juice which was freshly squeezed and delicious (expensive but delicious!) Excellent choice. The only thing I can ding on the pancakes was that the syrup was very runny - almost watered down like.. It tasted good but Im used to thick syrup. Now I can't vouch for any other meals except the eggs Benedict which both my wife and daughter ordered. The hollandaise sauce was absolutely horrible and not edible. I don't think they made it there and plus the smothered basically half the plate with it... (SEE PICTURES) Do Not Order the Eggs Benedict - or if you do ask for a sampling of the sauce first.... The bacon they served was excellent too. Service first rate. So I guess the moral to this review is - you go to a pancake house for pancakes... not the other meals... If I was rating the pancakes it would have been 5 stars.

The gluten free pancakes were wonderful! We had great service and everyone enjoyed their meal! The fresh squeezed orange juice was a major bonus!!!

Whenever we travel to Dallas, we always eat at the Original Pancake House. They seat you where you want without a hassle and the Service is second to none. Fluffy Omelets and Pancakes, eggs fried to perfection, freshly squeezed Orange Juice and Country gravy make for an outstanding breakfast experience. Did I mention the generous portion sizes. You will leave fully satisfied and a Doggy Bag. Slightly on the pricey side and well worth it. 3 adults cost $65.00 including the tip.

I had a western cheddar omlette, asked the to use 2 eggs instead of 4. It was perfect size for a hungry hefty guy that way, and I have never tasted better. The pancakes were light & delicious. Tate M served me, and he was friendly, efficient, and and attentive. Ask for him, you will get great service guaranteed.

I enjoyed my meals. However, the weekends were just too busy and it was hard to get a table. I love the service and food.
