Breaking News – Slider’s Pancake House

Good news, readers.

In an informal interview today, Fork You learned that the Morocco Mediterranean Cuisine and Pizza is only temporarily closed.

When Subway vacates their Washington Street location, the Original Sinbad’s Pizza will move in.   The transition should take place this fall.  I can already smell the spinach-feta pizza…

The firehouse space is now open as Slider’s Pancake House, under the same owner.  (Click on thumbnails below for full size menu.)

Some notable notes about Slider’s: 

  • all menu items are available all day long, including breakfast
  • reasonably priced kids’ meals are available, featuring a PB&J with a drink for only $1.99  (perhaps Ron will attempt to order that for himself)
  • salads are an option for the calorie-conscious diners
  • sandwiches are served with your choice of fries or rings, or for $1 more, you can substitute roasted red potatoes or a baked potato
  • plans are to operate 24 hours a day on weekends, beginning this Friday and Saturday – nothing can soak up the half dozen martinis you drank like a big stack of pancakes.  Am I right?

Sam also told Fork You that the vacant space adjacent to the now-Subway-soon-to-become-Sinbad’s Pizza may have a future as a grocery for East Enders.

  1. We tried to go there last Sunday morning (I live 50 yards from it), guess what, not open! One would think a “pancake house” would be open on a Sunday morning. Of course it’s a short drive to First Watch.

  2. Sliders House Rules.

    Sorry, I just had to say that.

    Actually this change begs many questions, chief among them: I wonder what it will be called 6 months from now? Scotch Tape Boutique?

    Or how about this one: Are the smoking crack? They had a pretty big following in spite of their quirky and expensive menu. A pancake house is supposed to do better? IN THAT location?

    Sometimes I think that the cooking gene and the business sense gene cannot exist in the same DNA.

    I’m no expert, but I still think that’s a strange place to open an all night breakfast joint. Unless they’re hoping to catch the exiting Red Carpet crowd.

    With the crazy business that First Watch does in another bad location, I think Charleston’s lack of breakfast joints will help this place.

    Anyone know the hours?

    Hit this place for breakfast. Food was average, on par with what you would get at an IHOP or waffle house. The inside is very dark with almost no natural light, very poor atmosphere for breakfast. It is cheap, and they do 24 hours on fridays and saturdays.

    Cheap for what it is. You really need a way to edit comments….

  7. Had a ribeye, 3 eggs up, toast and roasted potatos…. awesome

  8. First Watch is in a bad location? It’s right down town surrounded by a Subway, a juice place, a coffee shop, and on Sundays at least, plenty of free parking.

  9. Breakfast was ok..coffee awful! everything piled on my plate ‘skillet fashion’ didn’t like it wasn’t expected….ingredients on menu item did not mention cheese – oops! Lactose intolerant! Might go back, not sure.

  10. This place is history. Banner out front says Sinbads is moving in.

  11. Maybe the owners decided putting their pizza operation, sinbads, in the building with the pizza ovens made more sense than putting it in the former subway location across the street as they had told us in the interview.

    Maybe sliders will move across the street…maybe not.
