Joey’s Pancake House Maggie Valley, NC

Sharing is caring!

Every year we make the trip up to Maggie Valley in the fall. It has become an annual tradition in our family. One of the main reasons we love going there is that the area is so low-key. Most of the businesses there are owned by locals. This includes the restaurants. One of our favorites is Joey’s Pancake House.

Every year we see new attendants in the old buildings. They come and go. There is one, though, that has stood the test of time, Joey’s Pancake House.

Joey’s Pancake house has been doing things right since 1966. They have a huge following and this can be seen on any morning you are in Maggie Valley by the wait of the line to get into the place.

It stands true, though, like I have said before, that if you are on vacation get there before 8:00 AM. You stand a good chance of walking in and sitting down to eat.

Joey’s has been around a while even in a town that has passed its heyday. Maggie Valley is still a great place to visit even though it does not have the attractions of nearby Pigeon Forge. What it does have are locals that treat you right. Joey’s is a fine example of that.

Next time you are in the area make sure you stop in to try some of the best breakfasts served up in Western North Carolina. Trip Advisor has them ranked at number 1 in Maggie Valley and I tend to agree with that ranking.

When you walk in the door you are greeted by the nicest lady you will ever meet and you will be offered coffee while you wait. You simply can not beat that!

I love Joey's Pancake House! I've been eating there ever since I can remember. Great post on a great restaurant. :)

Same here! I've never had a bad meal there. I was so sad when the original owner decided to close it down but glad she decided to sell it to someone and they run it the same way. The food still tastes the same! Thanks for your comment.
