At the forefront of the healthy food movement. We use ONLY 100% grass-fed beef, for our beef breakfast links, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs and Home Made Chili.
Sourced from Bill Kurtis' (CBS 2 Chicago News Anchor) Tallgrass Beef Company, American producers and New Zealand.
We opened our first Original Pancake House in Toledo, Ohio 43 years ago and have had the privilege of serving Park Ridge for the past 40 years.
The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field, and their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Our batters and sauces are made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen.
Try our Light, Fluffy, Organic, Gluten free, popped Amaranth Waffles and Pancakes... We offer Kerry Gold Butter, real Maple syrup and Tibetan Coffee made with Kerry Gold butter and organic, refined coconut oil whipped in.
We apologize, but due to limited production space, we're not always able to make additions or subtractions from certain menu items on weekends and holidays...please ask server for availability... Thank you
