    They have the No Wait app, but they do not follow it. Was third in line when I entered and saw 10 people seated before myself

    I really like this place, but the food is never consistent. It's always good, but I never know if the food will be under or overcooked go to ep for consistency

    Call ahead and give them your name to halve your wait time. But on a Saturday it will probably still be quite busy. We called ahead and it was still a 25m wait. They don't do reservations on weekends.

    A pancake house that doesn't have maple syrup. Seriously. They have "maple flavored pancake syrup". Don't even have it for an up-charge. Came for pancakes. Had eggs instead.

    Thy won't call your name unless your whole party is present. You'd think it'd be frustrating but it's something that keeps people moving in and out quicker! Great hosting staff.

    The short stack is 3 about 4" diameter pancakes and it's the perfect size with a side of their excellent thick-cut bacon!

    If you get a side of hashbrowns *in addition* to whatever else you order for breakfast, it's big enough to split between 1-2 other people! (And it's sooo delicious!)
