“Loved this place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We stopped here immediately before our first day at Disneyland because I had read reviews of the huge portion sizes and wanted my family to have fuel for our day. We were not disappointed!! The hashbrowns were delicious, the French toast amazing and of course the pancakes were the best I've eaten! The staff was so friendly, which I was worried about since we arrived right before closing. Loved the cozy charm of the building itself as well, like eating at grandmas house! Definitely will make this place part of our Disneyland traditions.

“Old fashion food atmosphere, delicious food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

This place was our last restaurant we ate at in Anaheim! And it was our fave! We had a huge party eating with us so we tried almost everything, small menu choices, and everything was delicious! Especially the banana pancakes!! They also had good bacon pancakes for my bacon lover daughter!! The atmosphere was small and loud which was perfect for our loud mouth family!

Much better than expected or advertised. Don't be fooled by the exterior. Quick service, reasonable prices. The apple pancake is not to be missed, and not to be attempted alone; two people minimum to finish it.

“Not Sure it is worth the Drive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

never write reviews, but now I must. read all the glowing reports of Orig Pan House, and made the extra trip from Disland instead of going to Mimi's 1 block away. It is true that the food is tasty and the portions are large, but the place is run down and dirty: Cheetos wrapper in front garden area; weeds in garden area; front steps dirty; building needs paint; we sat near the kitchen, and I was able to observe the operation, and it was dirty and you could tell not very sanitary.

for the price of the food, these folks really need to clean up their act. if you go to Mimi's you will understand what clean and professional means. go to the Orig Pan House and see a run down operation with no pride whatsoever.

“Pancakes worth the short drive from Disneyland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is an Anaheim gem not to be missed if you have a car while you're in the Anaheim area. Kids will love it and the portions, food quality and service are amazing! The very retro interior just adds to the charm. Although the pancakes were as excellent as you'd hope, I was most happy with the hash browns! Shredded and seemingly tossed with butter, then fried into a thick cake, they absolutely stole the show for me.
