I really like the original pancake house
Erin Faulk April 23, 2012 at 08:57 PM
Jamie, is that in Scott Township? If so, I'll ask our Chartiers Valley Patch editor to add it to the breakfast poll on his site!

The Original Pancake House - Seating for a hundred and parking for only thirty. What a novel concept!

Dor-Stop! It was on the dine-ins show
Erin Faulk April 24, 2012 at 09:46 PM
True! I think it was on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. There's still a banner in the window!
Erin Faulk April 26, 2012 at 01:02 PM
I think we've got a landslide win on our hands...but there's still one day left to vote!

you missed Las Palmas ... they start making tacos at about 11:30 or 12 which is breakfast time, for me and a LOT of other people go for breakfast/early lunch tacos, as well .
Bob Dobbs April 26, 2012 at 03:23 PM
i dont care for dor-stops no debit/credit card as payment policy(backwards and inconvenient no matter the reason) and I don't care for their biblical nonsense signs . i'll go to a church if I want to see all that .
Kate April 26, 2012 at 03:29 PM
I believe the Dor-Stop does now take credit cards.
Bob Dobbs April 26, 2012 at 03:30 PM
well, last time I checked, they still were cash only but that's good news if correct.

I like the Dor-Stop but prefer Tom's Diner. The wait isn't as long & Tom's isn't as much as a chain as Eat n' Part :P
Ed M April 30, 2012 at 12:32 PM
I was there after church on Sunday and they do accept credit cards. Great food and only a 20 minute wait! Love the Scripture on the whiteboard!
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 12:38 PM
the 'scripture' has got to go . it's obnoxious .
Ed M April 30, 2012 at 12:40 PM
Obnoxious???? How so?
coreylahey April 30, 2012 at 02:26 PM
Bob Dobbs must believe the name of God and Jesus should be banned and censored except when spoken in profanity.
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 02:30 PM
non-sense and mythical folk-lore should be banned is all i'm saying .
coreylahey April 30, 2012 at 02:39 PM
Why should religion be banned?
Erin Faulk April 30, 2012 at 02:40 PM
This conversation took an interesting turn I didn't expect! Out of curiosity, what if he had movie posters, quotes from fiction novels or political references on the walls? I've always been interested to hear what it is about the Bible, specifically, that seems to provoke people.
coreylahey April 30, 2012 at 02:47 PM
Maybe if they had a picture of an American flag being burned Bob Dobbs would become a regular.
Erin Faulk April 30, 2012 at 02:54 PM
That seems a little extreme, Corey, and we shouldn't assume those kinds of things. This is an interesting discussion, though. What would qualify as nonsense and mythical folklore? What if there was a Lord of the Rings poster in the restaurant? Or quotes from Beowulf on the walls?
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 08:04 PM
America is one thing and nonsensical fantastic folk-lore is another . America does not = biblical b.s. I ate at dor stop once and had a sandwich of some kind and it was ok / good . If you ate at some folksy neighborhood diner and they had signs on the wall the said "unicorns are real" you'd probably wonder what they were smoking or drinking. that's my point .
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 08:08 PM
lord of the rings is known to obviously be a flight of literary nonsense but entertaining nonsense. i wouldn't mind a L.O.T.R. poster in there, instead 8^D
Ed M April 30, 2012 at 08:59 PM
So total mythology and and literary nonsense (your words not mine) are OK but Biblical statements aren't? Biblical doesn't equal BS.
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 09:00 PM
yes it does. most of it , anyway . why do you take it as literal fact ? why would you ?
coreylahey April 30, 2012 at 09:56 PM
America does = freedom and last time I checked Dor-stop only seeks to convert their customer's stomach from hungary to full, not their customer's religious veiws. Do you avoid Asian resturants that have statues of Buhda?
Bob Dobbs April 30, 2012 at 10:03 PM
well, there is *some* freedom left in this country but the founding fathers would be horrified if they saw what's happening nowadays . i just don't think they need to be imposing that stuff on people . that's all im trying to say really .
Bob Dobbs May 01, 2012 at 01:10 AM
well since the hater implied that I am not a good American or some other stupid tea party idiot perspective attack, I made that mention ... And I never said that people/Dormont owners can't or shouldn't believe what they are compelled apparently to believe (even though it's mythical nonsense). And yes, you're right, I don't have to patronize them if I don't want to . Dining options in Dormont are very limited, obviously and I understand why people gravitate there . We are lucky to have Thai Spoon having opened, recently. They make some really delicious Thai food . Not the best Thai i've ever had but, pretty good. Cheers.
Bob Dobbs May 01, 2012 at 01:28 AM
I wasn't referring to yourself as the hater . I meant the prior poster / commenter / snarker .
Ed M May 01, 2012 at 02:28 AM
I'm assuming when you refer to "it" you mean the Bible. And I take it as literal fact because it is. Do you have any proof it isn't?
Angelica Blouch July 03, 2012 at 06:50 PM
Dor-Stop does take credit cards, but they don't allow you to put the tip on the card... bring a few dollars for that.
