The Most Delicious Pancake House 5010 S. East Street


How is that for a name for a restaurant? No faux humility for them. Pat told me about this place and how could I pass up a joint called most delicious.

I don’t think Pat’s BT was cut and pounded in house, I believe it was brought in already breaded. It appeared to be a solid piece of meat and the consumer liked it so it probably doesn’t matter.

I decided that I needed a burger and I opted for a Most Delicious burger. That would be their standard half pounder with ham and bacon. Oddly enough I don’t believe it had any cheese. It came with a usual cold set and a spicy mayo. It was sloppy but good.

I especially liked the bacon. It was thick and crisp and just greasy enough to bring an added layer of flavor to the sandwich. What I didn’t get was the ham. It was nicely done; thinly sliced with a slight char but I don’t get the connection. It reminded me of a time , long ago, when stuffed burgers were in vogue. I had good success with various combinations so I offered one stuffed with chopped ham and Swiss cheese. “We put the ham in hamburger”. Boy that went over like the proverbial lead balloon.

I think I ordered it for the bacon. I wonder how it would be with an egg on top. Regardless the burger was pretty good the way it was.

This place doesn’t have any media presence yet so there is no menu to show. Just be assured they probably will have something you want to eat and it will be nicely prepared at a reasonable price. I think our sandwiches were under $10 each.

This fancy chandelier is in the center of the dining room. I don’t think the new tenants brought it in so it came from Shoney’s or Lucky 8 buffet. In either event it certainly adds a bit of Bling to the joint.

  1. I like your colored text squares; I didn’t know that was possible! Cool. I’ve legit been looking for a dining room chandelier for two years, so I could really use that boss chandelier. The name of the restaurant immediately brought to mind when Elf takes the girl to get “the world’s best coffee” in the movie, and she hates it LOL. Now that you mention a stuffed burger, it reminds me of one I saw on Food Network with cream cheese in the center. That sounds good. So you had a cheeseless burger with double pig?

    • Yep that was what it was. A double pig burger. This whole block thing is new so I am still a bit slow navigating it. So many decisions. Background color and then text color, but I do like the effect. That chandelier is indeed boss. I am sure it would look amazing in your dining room.

    • You may not like their tenderloin but their burger IS good.

  3. I may be wrong, but I could swear that was a brunch place when I was in high school. Not Shoney’s but proper brunch.
    A sloppy burger is a good burger. A prepackaged tenderloin is sacrilege here.

    • I can’t remember. I relied on Pat’s memory. I do recall the Lucky 8 buffet it was across the street from the Heritage House Buffet, a legit buffet. I never went to Lucky’s but I got the impression it was to buffets in the same way Cici’s is to pizza parlors.
