If you like old fashioned, it truly doesn't get any better than this. We love Family House of Pancakes because it's like stepping back to a time where people gathered at the local diner to enjoy a hearty breakfast of classic favorites. I cannot stress enough that these are the BEST pancakes I have ever had... and I consider myself... More

Delicious food and service was great. The only negative if you can call it that, is that it is a lot of food. We had breakfast and had enough for two other breakfasts at home.

Family House is our go-to restaurant, ESPECIALLY for breakfast. You need to get there EARLY for breakfast on the weekends as the line can Build quickly but it is WELL worth the wait!!!! Portion sizes are HUGE, food quality is above standard, prices are MORE THAN reasonable and customer service is A+. We've been going there for years and will... More

Ordered the corned beef hash and got a lot of bland food even the salsa in a little weird cup couldn't help rescue it. It's also dark and unwelcoming. Tried it for the good reviews. I just don't agree.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. The food is consistently delicious. Whenever I'm in town I always eat here at least once. It's a Chula Vista classic!

A good old fashioned coffee shop that the locals love you will often find a line but it seems to move pretty good. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal.

I have been coming here since 1974. It is a family owned breakfast and lunch restaurant. Open 6am to 2pm. This is a real gem serving country style portions with excellent service. The home fries are awesome. All the servings are huge. The omelettes are the biggest in the South Bay area. They are large enough to feed two persons.... More
