Flapjacks in Oak Lawn is the best. My favorite are the blueberry, but a plain stack is just as scrumptious!

Well it looks like it will be Stacked or Flapjacks.... but you guys have to try Lucky Burrito (95/natoma). They have an unbelievable Mexican breakfast and they have out of this world Pancakes. They don't get creative with all the mix-in's and toppings but as far as the batter goes, it's the best!!!
comic relief March 03, 2012 at 10:49 PM
.... and they are really cheap. 75 cents per pancake!
