I don’t visit them often, but I have yet to have a "bad meal" at IHOP. We don’t stop often for a sit-down breakfast. The two stores on our side of the Ohio River across from Louisville are clean, and the service seems to be reasonable considering the week-end Interstate Travel Crowds.
Every IHOP i’ve been to has been disguting and dirty. Sorry, i’ll never go to one.
My husband and I went to the IHOP in Lexington, KY, this morning and it was very good — I wasn’t in the mood for breakfast food so I had the Philly and onion rings and my husband had some kind of breakfast sampler and it was very good. The portions were very generous, and I brought half of mine home. We’ll definitely go again.
Heh im not surprised!
Luckily the IHOP in my town has all nice people for the most part…
I don’t dislike IHOP but unfortunately the two that opened around here several years had some real management/ownership issues. I believe there was even a sexual harassment complaint against the owner by the waitstaff. The service was so bad and the staff apparently hated working there that we actually saw a couple of employees quit and loudly walk out.
IHoP returned to the Milwaukee area a few years ago. The four restaurants all have nicely done food, clean buildings, and friendly if overworked staff.
A great place for filling yourself with comfort food! And no matter how picky my daughter gets, she always has room for the strawberries and french toast.
Same here at the Detroit area locations. At IHOP or Denny’s (at least ever since they settled the African American lawsuits).
Funny, we have IHOPS, Denny’s, and Big Boy’s all over but no Waffle House. Ares north of I-80 have all the IHOP’s but no Waffle Houses (not including Toledo).
It’s not really a treat for us to go. We’re able to go to a IHOP for a simple breakfast whe we feel like it.[8D]
Reminds me of the old joke:
Where does a one legged Waitress work?
[:D]They opened a new IHOP by Rolling Oaks Mall in San Antonio.There is one in The Forum Shopping center in Live Oak.Due I think to the tremendous business the place is doing,they decided to open another one in NE San Antonio right by the mall.It does a good business too.
I had the chicken fried bonless chicken breast that was good.
The Denny’s in Schertz used to be packed for breakfast.
We also have the Village Inn,but haven’t tried it for breakfast.
IHOP is good for a chain! We went there often when I was a kid in Quincy, MA and my mom even worked there for a while..yum! Unfortunately here in Columbus, OH there are no IHOPS (though I know there were some here with the old fashioned deep slanted roofs that closed probably in the mid 1980s) and a couple times when I was still married my wife, myself and the kids would make the 70 mile drive to Findlay just for IHOP. Crazy but true..lazy Sunday morning..why not make a drive? I would love for IHOP to re-enter the Columbus market. Just a few Perkins and a few Waffle Houses..seems like a potential market here.
IMHO IHOP is half the quality and three times the cost of Waffle House
I like IHOP. I prefer Waffle House but IHOP is sometimes a nice change of pace.
I really like their fish and chips dinner. Sometimes I’ll order it only to find out that particular IHOP doesn’t have malt vinegar. Fish and chips is complete without malt vinegar.
That was my poblem being forced to go to IHOP, it was double what we pay at our local diner. We are lucky to have 4 local diners that we rotate between, I hope to never go to a IHOP again.
The one near our house is pretty old and designed to where you can see the griddle and they’re cooking them, at least at this one. IHOP isn’t bad, but it is pricier than the same food at a local diner. Problem is a lot of places don’t really have local diners.
