Pancakes and Texas-Shaped Waffles

It's been a busy couple weeks down here in Ft. Worth, but I have made some time for eating out, like at the Ol' South Pancake House. There's a lot to like about Ol' South: the 24 hour service, the old men in trucker hats congregating over coffee and the sassy waitresses.

Sadly, the pancakes aren't one of those things, at least not the Spiced Apple German Pancake (pictured at right). What looked like an omelet was in fact a thick, eggy pancake, filled with average cinnamon spiced apples and overflowing with butter. At least they claimed it was real butter, but it tasted a lot like margarine. One of my friends ordered a short stack with fresh fruit (below, center) which looked much more appealing.

It also seems silly to stray far from my hotel's breakfast bar for my morning carb fix, especially when it offers something as fun as a Texas-shaped waffle.
