Du-Par’s Restaurant & Bakery at the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino
1 Fremont St.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
Known for serving the “Best Pancake in America” according to Esquire magazine, guests can enjoy Du-Par’s famous pancakes 24 hours a day. Available as a short stack (two pancakes), Vegas stack (three pancakes) or individually, the pancakes are light, fluffy, buttered and made with a secret family recipe. That recipe actually has ties to the legendary Vegas hotel, as Du-Par’s original recipes come from one of the Golden Gate’s founding partners, Tiny Naylor. Currently, the diner is run by Naylor’s son, Biff, who serves the classic recipes with the same fresh, homemade quality that made Du-Par’s a legend in its own right.
The Egg & I
4533 W. Sahara Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89102
Don’t let the name fool you. While The Egg & I may be known for its scrumptious egg dishes, the restaurant also cooks up some pretty amazing pancakes. Diners can not only choose what type of batter they want (buttermilk or buckwheat) and how many pancakes they want to devour (one large pancake that fills a 10-inch plate or a short stack of three fairly large pancakes about eight inches around), but also what type of pancake they’re hungry for. Options includes blueberry, banana, cashew and blueberry, diced apple and cinnamon and, of course, chocolate chip. For less adventurous palates, plain pancakes are available, too—though they’re so tasty, taste buds will argue they are anything but.
Hash House A Go Go
6800 W. Sahara Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89146
Calling all serious pancake eaters! For those who can never get enough of the breakfast favorite, check out Hash House A Go Go’s signature flapjacks. Available for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night, the flapjacks are giant—14 inches in diameter, to be exact. Celebrity fan Al Roker even said they were bigger than his head. Guests can indulge in six different flavors—blueberry pecan, brown sugar banana, blackberry granola, Snickers, apple cinnamon or mango coconut—or try the “pancake of the day.” During National Pancake Week, the restaurant celebrates with a variety of promotions and fundraisers for charity. Call Hash House A Go Go for more details.
