  1. The two places I think of are the Original Pancake house (thin style) and Dinah's (thick style). I usually get the former with the homemade corned beef hash.

    Original Pancake House
    1756 S Pacific Coast Hwy, Redondo Beach, CA 90277

    6521 S Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90045

            I haven't found any that rival the home made, german style, I grew up with, but I do like the potato pancakes at the Red Lion Inn in Silverlake.

            1. because of this thread i ate an entire box of frozen potato pancakes last night from Trader Joes that i'd recently bought and had in my freezer. they aren't awful. now i'll have to check out nat & als.
