Pancakes R Us was one of the first IHOPs in Orange County, until owner/former CIA liaison/mujahideen fighter Abdulla Akbar, left the franchise in 2007, when he decided the menu was too boring. His new offerings were the same basic take on breakfast—hearty, meat-heavy American offerings with occasional dashes of European flair—but better. The best part of a trip to Pancakes R Us, however, is the service. Whether you're a group of drunk college students that came in delirious and sleep-deprived after a night out or a family seated at a table while there's a line out the door, your coffee's always full, the water plentiful and the atmosphere welcoming.
