    Not gonna lie - it's okay. Nice enough place and good food, but I didn't think it was the "ish" like its reputation makes it out to be. Very crowded, but service is good.

    A photo of the founder hangs upon the wall of this family owned 24hr Fort Worth landmark. His son runs it today If you respect 'Ol School cooking, avoid the chains — eat here & thank me later! ♡

    A no-nonsense local favorite that turns out top-notch flapjacks, including the house specialty, a German version served with lemons, powdered sugar and whipped butter. Read more

    Ol' Southern Skillet: it's a biscuit smothered with eggs, gravy, cheese, hash browns and choice of meat. Get it with chorizo, bacon, onion and tomatoes. Greatness. Also one of the best values!

    My German Pancake was lukewarm. The butter wasn't completely melted and thus didn't turn into a sauce and was wholly unsatisfying.

    The hash is amazing. Doesn't look like all that much when it comes out, but it's crisp and tasty. Get the biscuits with it, they're huuuuge and pillowy and come with an ocean of gravy.
