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.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
