    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.
