Pancakes bring me back to childhood. Breakfast, dinner, and lunch, pancakes at my Nana's house. I loved them so much. Although she would always have scrapple with it, I'd eat just the pancakes.

I don't believe I ever tasted a better pancake than I did when I moved to New Jersey. The pancakes here are fabulous and in Ocean County, we have some great pancake places. From just the regular pancakes with syrup or a specialty pancake, they are truly the best.

It's funny, New Jersey has the best pizza, the best fries, and personally speaking the best pancakes. Not waffles, not French toast, but pancakes.

Where are the best pancakes in Ocean County?

Hands down, the winner that so many listeners wrote us about was the Brownstone Pancake Factory in Brick.

Brownstone Pancake Factory is at 979 Cedar Bridge Ave in Brick.

Other favorite places to get pancakes, chosen by you were Four Seasons Diner in Toms River, Shut Up and Eat in Toms River, The Sandcastle Diner in Beachwood, and the Stafford Diner in Manahawkin.
