PHOENIX — A Valley restaurant is reaching for the stars as it aims to shatter the Guinness World Record for the tallest stack of pancakes this week.
Joe’s Diner at 4515 N. Seventh Ave., between Camelback and Indian School roads in Phoenix’s Melrose District, will make the record-setting attempt Tuesday at 7:30 a.m.
The current Guinness World Record for the tallest stack of pancakes measured at 3 feet, 4 inches tall, totaling 213 pancakes.
“There is nothing better than a big stack of our hot made-from-scratch pancakes with butter and syrup, but breaking this record may top that,” owner Joe Seriale said in a press release.
“I’m confident we can beat the record set in the United Kingdom back in 2016 and hope everyone will join us to witness history being made.”
Joe’s Diner has been serving homemade food using only local ingredients since 2010.
Renowned for its signature pancakes, the diner offers a diverse menu, including classics like meatloaf, eggs benedict, French dip and omelets.
