Even though it is one of a chain…

…the Lincoln Square Pancake House in Greenfield, Indiana is more like a small town  independent diner. This group of 9 restaurants has a fascinating story. The restaurants are scattered around central Indiana, and unlike other chains no two buildings are alike in design nor size. They are the result of decades of hard work of George Katris ,  first generation Greek immigrant who came to North America at age 18, where he bussed tables in Toronto.

Fast forward to today, and the Katris family still owns and operates the restaurants. A diner? Yes, in the typical definition of good food and lots of it! Sher and I were told of the Lincoln Square Pancake House by one of the shop proprietors.  We got there at 2:00 PM with an hour to spare. The restaurants, in true pancake/breakfast tradition, open at 7:00 AM and close at 3:00 PM.

Sher and I enjoyed very tasty and very filling meals. We’ll look for other Lincoln Square Pancakes Houses as we travel around Indiana.

  1. Did you have an answer for “How come there are no knock-knock jokes about America”? If I remember correctly it’s “Freedom rings!” So I guess we need a Ring Ring joke:

    Ring Ring
    ¿Hola?
    ¿Cómo es esto?
    America.
    ¿Americano quién?
    ¡Ningún americano queue!
    ¿Quien entonces?
    ¡America la BELLA!

    The food looks tasty.
