Since 1962

Founded by late restaurateur David Benson, along with his sister Bette, Ol' South Pancake House is where the entire family can enjoy southern home-style cooking at any time of the day or night. Signature dishes have kept our guests coming back for more, with our most popular World Famous German Pancakes being served over 40 thousand times each year to our loyal customers.

For over 60 years, Ol' South has continued to carry on the tradition of a 24-hour family restaurant with signature cooking. As one of Fort Worth's landmarks, Ol' South has served and pleased over 10 million customers since 1962, including many celebrities, dignitaries, congressmen, athletes and musicians.

Ol' South Pancake House is proud to be Texan and always strives to offer the best in Southern cooking.

We have been voted the best breakfast and late night restaurant for 6 years in a row!

We have a full menu selection. From Waffles to Chicken Fried Steak, from Our Grilled Spinach Salad to our sweet and delicious Pecan pie, we have it all!
