They we’re very good at telling me what’s gluten free on the menu and they used a separate pan for the pancakes to make sure that there was no cross contamination

The gf pancakes are amazing and so is the French toast and for a side you can order four thick slices of bacon which is amazing!!

Hit or miss. I've been going for years and got sick and never went back. The staff tends to be irresponsible with making sure the chefs know the allergy is present. If you are sensitive, I wouldn't risk it but if you do be very clear the severity of the allergy

In love with their GF pancakes I like the blueberry ones and order their (real) whipped cream on top. Absolutely heavenly! Service is great too!!

I would have given a 5 a couple months ago. I go there often and really enjoyed their pancakes but the last couple times the pancakes clearly are a different recipe which is not as good.

Although the GF pancakes were good my experience at this restaurant was very disappointing. I ordered GF pancakes and my waiter brought me the regular ones, which I only discovered after taking a bite and seeing my friend receive her side of pancakes which looked identical to mine. When I asked the waiter of mine were gf realized it was a mistake and responded, "well you only took a bite". He never apologized for the mistake, while I had to pay for the consequences the rest of the day. If you're going to serve GF items these kind of mistakes cannot happen!!

They have several varieties of gluten free pancakes. I've had the blueberry and the plain. The blueberry was OK, but the regulate were good--they had a nice texture and I didn't need to put syrup on them for them to be good. I actually couldn't finish them all. The other food they have (eggs, hash browns) were also good.

So many gluten free pancakes I couldn't eat them all. Yummy! I ordered pure maple syrup too. Extra cost but worth it. Military discount was surprise bonus!

The menu was labeled with GF but some of the menu was wrong - they said the meat was no longer Gluten free but still marked on the menu as GF. Otherwise they were very knowledgeable of what was GF!

I absolutely love original house of pancakes. It is my favorite place to eat in Champaign. They have the most amazing gluten free pancakes I have ever had. Just make sure to let the server know you have an allergy!
