    The Original "Original Pancake House" is on Lincoln Ave. just west of State College Blvd. in Anaheim. It was opened by two retired woman teachers about 40 years ago. They franchised the name and recipes out but it is as good as it was when I first went there 30 years ago. It is wildly popular especially on weekends. Prepare for a wait then.

          The original one in this chain is actually in Portland, Oregon. I don't know of any others around LA... Personally I'm a fan of Uncle Bill's in Manhattan Beach, but the OPH comes in second in its class.

              IMHO, Dinah's is nothing special. Heavy pancakes that could be esaily duplicated at home with Bisquick. Even DuPar's pancakes are better than these.

                Obviously you have never had the Apple Pancake or the Dutch Pancake. Try to duplicate them at home with Bisquick, I think not.

                  ...Or the incredible and huge German Pancake (w/powdered sugar and a mound of lemon slices). These special's (Apple, Dutch, etc) take about 20 minutes to prepare but are well worth it. They're the only reason I go there.
