New Restaurant

The Meridian House of Pancakes is the city's newest restaurant. It's a branch off from the House of Pancakes restaurant in Philadelphia.

The owners say they are optimistic about opening in the Queen City.

"Really, every time you're taking on a business you're taking a chance," says Bassam Abdelkihleq who is the co-owner. "You're willing to take the loss or winngs both ways. I'm optimistic because everyone wanted a place like this over here in Meridian."

The Meridian House of Pancakes is located in Howard Johnson's Hotel on Highway 80. It's open seven days a week and 24 hours straight on Fridays and Saturdays.
