    Danger Dogs at Jonathon’s

    This dish stretches the definition of a conventional pancake: The upscale Oak Cliff diner dips breakfast sausage in pancake batter and deep-fries it, serving it up with spicy mustard. We recommend a double dip in both mustard and maple syrup.

    1111 N. Beckley Ave.; 214-946-2221

  • Griddle Stack at Whiskey Cake

    The Plano gastropub’s pancakes arrive with caramelized apples, maple syrup, Marcona almonds and whipped cream. Wash 'em down with a cold glass of milk.

  • Blueberry Pancakes at So & So’s

    This Uptown bar with elevated cuisine serves three flapjacks dotted with fresh blueberries, lemon curd and Fernet Branca-spiked maple syrup.

    Crêpes at Buzzbrews

    Thin, sweet or savory and endlessly stuffable, crêpes are pancakes too. And Buzzbrews makes some rich, creamy, eggy, meaty varieties, most of which can be topped with its impeccable peppery cream sauce.

  • Berry Vodka Pancakes at Boxwood

    You won’t get a buzz from this short stack of pancakes dressed in berry-vodka sauce; for that, you'll need to pair them with Boxwood’s mimosa trio — three fruit juices and a bottle of bubbly.

    2901 Thomas Ave.; 214-220-2901

  • Red-Velvet Pancakes at Max’s Wine Dive

    A list of decadent pancakes in Dallas wouldn’t be complete without a red-velvet version, and the one at Max’s is a brunchmenu favorite. Pair that stack with bacon for a perfect sweet-savory bite. 

    3600 McKinney Ave.; 214-559-3483

  • Potato Pancakes at Gin Mill

    At weekend brunch service, the East Dallas pub drapes its house potato pancakes with smoked salmon, herbed cream and capers.
