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 this unique and original menu. The Original Pancake House is a second and third generation family business, which takes great pride in maintaining the high standards that make our food so outstanding. We now have over one hundred franchises from coast to coast, which have won local and 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 sourdough starter. Our batters and sauces are made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen, and juices are squeezed fresh daily.
The first Las Vegas location was opened in 1995 by Stephan and Kim Freudenberger, who have gone on to open seven locations since. This year we are celebrating our 25th year of happily serving the Las Vegas community and looking forward to continuing doing what we love.
