Unforgettable stack of pancakes and great hash browns. Really friendly service. Everything was good. Not a 5-star because the seating is tight and not comfortable. We went on a weekday at 10am and the wait was not long.

I had the Hawaiian French toast which was delicious. My girlfriend had the Chicken Loco which looked really good. Service was great. Portions are huge and worth the money. Loved this place.
