When getting out of bed, people generally avoid exiting on the wrong side, which is typically defined as either the side that's farthest away from where they slept or the side that's closest to the shark tank. Subvert directional superstition with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of café fare at Juicy-O Pancake House, valid at locations in Willowbrook, Naperville, and Downers Grove.
Juicy-O’s kitchen serves up an inexhaustible menu of breakfast and lunch fare ranging from syrup-slathered flapjacks to savory egg specials. Named for their fruit juices, which run the gamut from classic orange to exotic pomegranate ($2.95–$3.95), the eatery sweetens mornings by folding French-style crepes around sliced bananas and Nutella ($7.95). Taste buds buckle their seatbelts for the pancake flight, a three-tiered stack of one blueberry, one strawberry, and one banana hotcake ($7.95). Staffers also serve up savory plates, such as biscuits and gravy with sausage patties, potatoes, and two eggs, any style ($8.95). Complimentary donuts crafted from a secret house recipe lie in wait of unsuspecting breakfasters, and lunchtime patrons grab midday eats such as the Juicy-O burger, topped with munster cheese, crispy onions and mushrooms ($8.95).

Juicy-O Pancake House’s kitchen serves up an inexhaustible menu of breakfast and lunch fare ranging from syrup-slathered flapjacks to savory egg specials. Named for its fruit juices, which run the gamut from classic orange to exotic pomegranate, Juicy-O also prides itself on its donuts, which are crafted from a secret house recipe and "fried before your eyes on a little donut maker,” according to ABC Chicago’s Steve Dolinsky.
Juicy-O’s locations each exude cheerful vibes, with dining rooms that are flooded with natural light and walls that are covered in framed anecdotes, such as, “Every family tree always produces nuts!” and “Time is money! Stop reading these stupid signs!”
