Ever get a hankering for some pancakes, greasy bacon and fluffy scrambled eggs? How about big sweet beer biscuits washed down by a steady supply of fresh, hot coffee? If so, mosey over to this down-home White Rock Lake-area eatery. In addition to daily breakfast and lunch specials, the Flap & Cluck with Oink (two pancakes and two eggs, plus your choice of meat) is one of several good deals. Be sure to watch your mouth when ordering that one, however. Mess up and you might get smacked upside the head with a frying pan. Also, unless you're itching to cheat, don't come here if you're on a diet--a low-fat one, that is.
