Pancake Tacos

I learned today that your friendly neighborhood Cracker Barrel just might be making some kinds of pancakes you can’t get by sitting down and ordering while playing with that triangle golf tee game. You have to order these (not really) secret flapjacks for home delivery through Uber Eats or DoorDash or Grubhub. Cracker Barrel calls their delivery menu — The Pancake Kitchen.

Just this week, Pancake Kitchen by Cracker Barrel announced two new menu items for home delivery, including the one on the picture right above this, the one I put in the title  – bacon, egg, and cheese pancake tacos! An order is two buttermilk pancakes, each folded and filled with shredded Colby, bacon, and an over and hard fried egg. You get a side of maple syrup for dipping like breakfast birria. For a limited time, you can also get blueberry pancakes layered with cream cheese cheesecake filling, topped with fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup.

From comparing the Cracker Barrel and Pancake Kitchen menus, it looks like PK also has exclusive chocolate chip pancakes and confetti pancakes that are made with either Fruity Pebbles or the unbranded equivalent. Of course, Pancake Kitchen also has the regular buttermilk and pecan cakes you can get at Cracker Barrel and the hashbrown casserole, but old-school CB is keeping the French toast for itself.

Until Feb. 28, Pancake Kitchen is doing deals through the delivery apps. GrubHub, Uber Eats and DoorDash all have $5 off a $30 purchase with DoorDash also offering free delivery if you if you spend at least $20.

Of course, you should make sure you’re in the ghost kitchen delivery zone before getting too fired up for breakfast tacos and fried apples. I live in Orlando and while there are two Pancake Kitchen kitchens in town, I don’t live close enough to either one. Can I come over to your house?
