Beverly fills

The metro's historic pancake diner offers up more than just the traditional breakfast fare.


Restaurant Reviews

Louis Fowler
Beverly’s Pancake House
3115 Northwest Expressway
848-5050

What works:
It’s arguably the best diner food in Oklahoma City. Of course, I haven’t eaten at all the diners. Yet.
What needs work:
Please make sure you get my order correct next time. No hard feelings.
Tip(s):
Open 24 hours, it’s a much better choice than McDonald’s at 3 a.m.
