If nothing but fluffy pancake goodness will do, you can get your fill at the Smoky Mountain Pancake House in Pigeon Forge. They are masters at creating perfect stacks of decadent pancakes and topping them with all the best flavors around.

You can get your stack covered in rich maple syrup, peanut butter, chocolate, or pecans, just to name a few. In honor of the gorgeous landscape all around, they’re also keen on piling on the berries when you’re in the mood for strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries galore. Their offerings don’t end there either. They also have all the most popular hot breakfast dishes, ranging from eggs and bacon to biscuits and gravy.

By the time you’ve tasted their breakfast fare, you’ll likely be wondering how they are so good at what they do. The answer is that Smoky Mountain Pancake House has been in business since 1968, proudly serving as the perfect place to start the day any time you’re in Pigeon Forge. Just be sure to get in the doors before noon because they serve up breakfast hot and early, and then close for the rest of the day.

You’ll definitely want to try their:

Pecan Pancakes
If you love pecan pie, you’re going to adore the Pecan Pancakes. They start with a light batter that’s filled with pecans and sizzle them up to a light golden brown. If that’s not enough rich pecan flavor, they top the stack with even more pecans and syrup for your pure enjoyment.

Pigs in a Blanket
When you want a mix of sweet and savory, you cannot go wrong with Pigs in a Blanket. This dish features sausage links wrapped up tight in three buttermilk pancakes. It comes with plenty of syrup for dipping plus you can add eggs on the side if you wish.

Stuffed French Toast
The Stuffed French Toast takes this classic dish to the next level with an amazing cheesecake custard filling. On top of that, they cover it in your fruit of choice, including strawberries, blueberries, or bananas. If you’re really daring, get all three, although it will likely be an extra charge.

Fiesta Omelet
Whenever you order the fiesta omelet, you get a whole party’s worth of awesome flavors. The omelet features sausage, onions, green peppers, and tomatoes smothered in cheese. Then, once it’s all folded up, they cover the lot with sour cream and salsa. As if that’s not enough, you also get a stack of pancakes, so be sure to bring a huge appetite if you order this one.

BLT & Egg
Upon treating yourself to the BLT & Egg, you get to enjoy out-of-this-world flavor sandwiched on thick slices of Texas Toast. Between each slice, they add two eggs and plenty of bacon plus tomato and lettuce. You get a side of hash browns with your sandwich, but it’s well worth upgrading to the loaded option instead. With that move, your hash browns come covered in onions, peppers, and cheese.

In addition to serving up everyone’s breakfast favorites, the crew always strives to provide the best service around. They’ll welcome you in with a friendly hello and proceed to make your visit special each time you walk through the doors. Expect a lot of smiles and laughter as you chat with your server plus prompt service throughout every stage of your meal.
