    They're gonna reco syrup and #1 hot sauce with your mac and cheese pancake. Only use the syrup and it's already amazing. The #1's peppery taste overpowers it.

    Service was beyond rude... The waiter got angry at us for "not ordering enough food" and slammed the check on our table when we decided not to order anything else at the end.

    Cosy little place with a lot of character. The food was great, everything was fresh and it had a nice twist to it. Loved our blueberry walnut pancakes and the veggie sausage English muffin scramble.

    The massive menu can be overwhelming to newcomers, but start with the “blisters on my sister” category or the pumpkin pancakes. Read more

    Interesting? Yes. Strange? Yes. Kitchen staff loudly fighting constantly? Yes. Food great? Not so much. OK if every other place in the area is full. Avoid any dish with potatoes.

    Eating here is like joining a very peculiar family for breakfast. I wanted both slutty and mac and cheese pancakes, so they were so nice as to give me one of each. I preferred the slutty one!

    Insane menu and gruff staff. Excellent sliders. Most items are heavy and filling, so feel free to share.

    Mac and cheese pancake was bomb, however, the service is not. Super rude/scary service. They don't give recommendations, so go prepared.

    Follow the rules and order whatever catches your eye; you can't go wrong with anything on the extensive menu, including the Ova (Poached Eggs over Bacon-Cheese Grits, with a side of Toast).

    Be patient, no parties of five, watch what you fucking say. Finish what's on your plate! What's wrong with it? Sure it's huge, but it's so good. And don't bother Zack when it's busy.

    Kenny Shopsin’s philosophy is strict, but simple. “They have to prove it to me, that they’re okay to feed.” Returning customers who have already proven their worth to Shopsin rave about the diner.

    Believe the hype. Tremendous dishes, well thought out flavor profiles. Bring your a-game appetite. Mac n cheese pancakes? They work. Get there early, there will be a wait, but worth it.

    The menu is ridiculous. Get here on the early side for brunch to avoid a long line. The s'mores pancakes will absolutely leave you wanting some more.
