It is still as good as years ago!  Family House of Pancakes, a legendary restaurant in Chula Vista since 1964, makes no bones about serving huge platters of food. My first experience with hash browns spilling over the plate was too many years ago to count and after a recent visit, it hasn’t changed one shred of potato.  The menu has seemingly endless varieties of pancakes and waffles and the biggest omelets I have laid eyes on.

Inside the restaurant is smaller than I remembered and the servers twirl around each table and booth holding armfuls of plates and refilling coffee cups. There is another location in National City, but this is the heart and soul where flipping pancakes began 52 years ago.
