It depends on where you are. Some IHOPs knock out some pretty good food. I used to live in the south, and ate at many great IHOPs. I moved back up the north several years ago,and we got an IHOP up here. It's awful. I don't know why there is a difference.
Superman ain't been hot since the 70's.
No, OP, the food is terrible.
And by most accounts, so is Man of Steel, so suck it.
Very close to my opinion R2.
Like the french toast and pancakes.
Don't like the omelets(egg part not the fillings). They need to be cooked another way.
Grits, hashbrowns, sausage.... all gross. All 3 of these things are 5 times better at Huddle House
I do like the chicken, spinach crepe. I've ordered that more than once.
British Columbia has IHOPS, R7.
I do not often eat at IHOPS, but generally the food is of poor quality, the breakfast meats in particular, poorly cooked, and way too expensive for such small portions. There is no reason anyone should eat at one.
It's IHOP, not IHOPS.
They have the worst iced-tea, I swear.
But I love their French toast (the regular stuff... not the diabetes-inducing "stuffed" variety) with a side of two eggs scrambled. Or their "3 pancakes & 3 eggs" combo.
It's sometimes nice to be able to get breakfast at any time of the day there. And it's better than Denny's.
R11, R14, Here's a copycat of their recipe for French Toast. Make sure you use the right kind of bread. There are also duplicate recipes for IHOP pancakes online.
[quote] Make sure you use the right kind of bread.
The recipe does not specify any kind of bread.
Because nothing is better for that Man of Steel physique of yours than a stack of pancakes drizzled with butter and syrup with a side of bacon or sausages.
You stupid, fat Americans pay inflated prices to see infantile films stuffed with commercials for products that are bad for you!
R16, Similar online recipes recommend brioche or thick slice egg bread, Hawaiian bread, or Challah.
IHOP does not use those breads in their French toast. So why would someone trying to replicate IHOP French toast use one of those breads?
I love the stuffed French toast with strawberries on top.
R19, Copycat recipes are either similar or an improvement. I'm sure IHOP has a specially made bread for their French Toast, not readily available to the public.
R21, I think it's probably just store-bought white-bread.
IHOP is nasty and everything tastes like it came out of a box frozen.
I like their "French styled pancakes"
R24, Do you mean Swedish pancakes, which are like crepes and are made with eggs and milk?
Is there a difference between Country Griddle Cakes & pancakes?
I didn't like Heath Ledger in his role as "Joker".
They pee in the buttermilk pancakes, you know.
R26, Yes there's a difference in the ingredients. Country griddle cakes includes instant cream of wheat.
I go 4 times a year and always get the CINN-A-STACK® French Toast with no whipped cream and extra icing.
No R25. They're basically crepes that are quarter-folded on a plate, and you'd get four of them so that the four crepes would form a circle. Then they'd put warm marmalade in the middle and dust the crepes with powdered sugar.
I just checked IHOP's online menu and they're not there. I don't know if they stopped offering it - I haven't been to an IHOP in years - or if it's something that's offered only in certain parts of the country.
Trippy IHOP commercial from 1969. The portions are so small compared to what they serve now. And of course, the wife orders a salad.
