I had breakfast here today and the food was good. Warm syrup made the pancakes even better. I was most impressed by my waiter, Gamil. He was very efficient. I was happy that he kept my beverage full. When I placed my order I also told him I wanted an additional order to go when I was done. He took... More

OPH isn't the cheapest breakfast in town, but their quality makes up for the prices, in my opinion. Plus, it's the only restaurant in town I can find fresh-squeezed OJ. Sure, it's a bit pricey, but it's delicious. Their bacon is probably the best in town, too.

We have been frequenting this franchise for over 40 years. Sadly they are getting harder and harder to find. We love the menu and go try to go when we can. Every visit brings back family memories. Only open through early afternoon and is almost always busy. Plan accordingly.

For years hubby and I ate here almost every weekend and just loved the food and people. Well it's been awhile now, over a year or more, and much has changed and not for the better. We were seated promptly and our waiter came over immediately with water. However, after 10-15 minutes I had to ask someone to find him... More

It could be that I'm remembering the many great breakfasts with friends I've had in various locations. However, it seems this restaurant used to be a lot better. The service was very good, but the food quality was average, at best. Perhaps more to the point, it seemed really over-priced. With tip, our party of 6 averaged $20 per person... More

We were on our way to DFW with some extra time. My daughter took us here. Not the most exciting place based on looks. But forget first impressions. Both the food and service were terrific.

This place is always busy. I've had to wait over an hour before in line for a table. If you want quick probably not your best option.

I had The Runner which is the oatmeal and fruit combo. It was very nice and the husband had eggs and toast. The food was perfect and the service was top notch. I highly recommend OPH.

If you are like me and think Breakfast is Important...this place will fill the bill. Excellent service (our coffee cups were never empty). Fresh squeezed orange juice and a varied menu for those that like savory and those that prefer sweet. I had the bacon pancakes- and went for three instead of six (short stack). My sister had the French... More

The wait time was about 25 minutes instead of the 15 minutes estimated. It took about 25 minutes for our food to come, but it was good.
