Original Hotcake and Steak House
Hotcakes, hash browns and burgers are what have kept this place a part of the Portland scene for more than 20 years. One of the more happening after-bar places to eat, the hot spot offers food that might not be too healthy, but you will not care once you indulge. The namesake hotcakes are big and fluffy. Hash browns are also good, but ask for them well done if you like them crispy. This is the perfect end to a wild night out or the start of a lazy day.
To Franchise Owner of Original Pancake House , in Aliso Viejo, California
My husband and I just ate at your Original PANCAKE House today. We were terribly disappointed with the size of your pancakes. We saw your establishment on line which looked very good. It was just what we were looking for. PANCAKES!!?? When our order came, to much of our surprise, our pancakes were so very small. They were no bigger than 5 in diameter.........That was the biggest one, the others ranged from 4 - 4 1/2 diameter (total of 3 pancakes, for $8.95??). We have eaten at the ORIGINAL Pancake House in Portland, Oregon.........and their pancakes were not small. The name of this restaurant is PANCAKE, so what we expected was some decent size pancakes. What happened to your pancakes???? I have also copied this email and sent it to the Corporate Office. We live in Ladera Ranch along with many of our friends. We would like to visit again at your place in Aliso Viejo, but not when your MAIN product, which states, PANCAKES, are so small in portions. We did love the different fruit and syrups offered on your pancakes. The syrup for the Banana Pancakes was excellent. Please let us know if we should visit your place of business again in the near future and also invite our family and friends?
With Concern and Regards,
The hashbrowns and bisquits/gravy are the best ive ever had. The service not so much, everyone is always cranky especially the guy in the tie dye head to toe. The chicken fried steak is icky, but the coffee is great. I would still go there, but not expect to be treated well.
Best Hashbrowns I've Had In My Life: We took a chance and stopped for breakfast... it is not a chance, but a sure thing. They serve great food and plenty of it, it is a well kept secret that we want to share with more folks. Eat and enjoy - feel guilty later.
For a fantastic early breakfast, after hitting the clubs/bars/parties. Portions are big and GOOD! Everything from Omelettes, Chicken Fried Steak, Pancakes, Sausage, Bacon, and everything else you can think of thats bad for you that you like for Breakfast is here.
Very highly recommended!
This is my favorite restaurant in Portland. They serve breakfast 24/7 and no matter when you go it always tastes great. I've had burgers and steak there a couple times, which was also good. Everything is well priced (cheap), especially considering the portions. This place isn't good for romance or ambiance, but it's great for what you *really* go to a restaurant for -- food.
A word of advice - the Hotcake House can get VERY crowded sometimes (especially on the weekends, usually until about 1) but the line usually moves fairly quickly so you should either anticipate a short wait or go when it's less busy.
