How would you describe a "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant? How did that term even come to exist? What does it mean?

Webster's Dictionary defines "hole-in-the-wall" as "a small and often unpretentious out-of-the-way place (such as a restaurant)"

With that in mind, think about your favorite place to eat that always pops into your head when you think of breakfast. Could that place be considered a "hole-in-the-wall?"

Check out the following list of every Montana restaurant featured on the Food Network. Would you consider these a "hole-in-the-wall?"

THE RESULT: Paul's Pancake Parlour in Missoula, MT

According to Cheapism

Chicken and biscuits, eggs Benedict, caramel pecan pancakes — all the breakfast classics are on the menu at Paul's Pancake Parlour. One Yelp review gushed, Good breakfast with large portions and solid service. Chicken fried steak was tasty and super filling.

For anyone who has never had the opportunity to eat at Paul's, make sure to plan a visit. Also plan on a short wait for your table, as the small restaurant is always packed regardless of what time you arrive.

As a fan of Paul's, I personally recommend you try the potato pancakes, the fruit-filled crepes, and the always fabulous chicken fried steak.
