What I am Eating Now: Pancakes in Dallas

The alternative restaurant critics diet.Usually I avoid eating fattening foods when I am not reviewing a restaurant. However, I have to tell you I let my guard down about three weeks ago and ordered a hot stack of pancakes and since then I have been eating them every two to three days. I can not stop. I love the Mecca’s cakes. Currently I am in Colorado and I have eaten pancakes every morning. My stomach is swollen up like a poisoned dog. Let’s talk pancakes!! Screw Pinkberry, I’m moving on. Breakfast is the new dinner. Tell me where to go. (Down, Kirk.)

  1. I’m not much of a pancake girl (eggs are more my thing) but Garden Cafe’s sweet potato pancakes are fantastic.

  2. Good one, Kirk.

    I love the breakfasts at Original House of Pancakes on (east bound) Lemmon.

  3. My opinion, and I know this is way too obvious, but for me there is nothing better in this world than IHOP’s Harvest Grain and Nut pancakes with its regular syrup served hot.

    This advise comes with a warning – they’re EXTREMELY addicting – eat at your own risk.

    I find myself coming up with reasons why I need to eat breakfast for lunch or breakfast for dinner all so I can have those darn pancakes. It’s embarrasing, but I can’t help myself.

  4. fan of the whole wheat cakes at Barbec’s, the Dream cakes at Dream Cafe and the gooey mess of cakes at Legal grounds.

  5. Sunday mornings at Spiral Diner, they have all you can eat pancakes. There are standard pancakes and a featured flavor each week. Yummy!

  6. I don’t really eat pancakes. Too much gluten. BUT, every once in a while I CRAVE Angela’s (Inwood & Lovers), banana nut pancakes.

  7. I suggest Weck’s on main street in Lewisville….Scratch made and don’t forget to mix in a Breakfast burrito smothered NM Green Chile!

  8. You’d never expect it, but Taco Diner at West Village has home made buttermilk pancakes with real maple syrup at breakfast mmmmmm…..

  9. Norma’s Cafe
    National Pancake Day.
    For every can good you bring you will get a free pancake Feb 24. For you cake lovers wanting to help and eat at the same time.

  10. Heya Jeffrey. I need to make it to Naga Thai soon (this weekend probably). Good to see you pop up.

  11. I can just SMELL the pancakes at the AllGood Cafe …
    order them with blueberries or strawberries if in season.
    and the Bacon, … Unbelievable Bacon. Mmmmmmm!

  12. John’s cafe, THE BEST!! I have tried most of the other places mentioned, and never really drooled over pancakes, but John’s definitely makes the best Ive ever had…

  13. The pancakes at Smoke are kinda good. Or, make your own German pancakes – easy peasy. Too many places use mix and they taste like it.

  14. Many years ago when IHOP resided in the current home of Chip’s on Lovers Lane, We’d go there often. I loved their German pancakes. they were almost like eggy, thick, crepes. Loved em!
