WAS a great place to eat..
Until this last visit, I have been very pleased with both the service and food at this establishment.
Recently though, it seems they have caved to people with seemingly nothing better to do than to complain about smoking in a restaurant they went to, that is KNOWN to have a smoking section enough that they no longer allow smoking here.
Myself, as well as many of my friends will no longer frequent this establishment until they realize that they are pushing away long time customers with this recent act of sheer stupidity and allow smoking again.
Breakfast served all day and pancakes served a variety of ways are the hallmarks of this diner-style restaurant.. In Short The first International House of Pancakes opened in a suburb of Los Angeles in 1958 serving a menu of hearty breakfast favorites. Today the restaurant still serves its signature dishes like the original buttermilk pancakes and pigs in blankets: sausage links wrapped in hotcakes. Other breakfast items include waffles, omelets, French toast and crepes. Non-breakfast offerings include sandwiches, burgers, entree-sized salads, and dinners like T-bone steak, pot roast and herb-roasted chicken.
The place is really fantastic...especially if you're a smoker. Since we get cast-out everywhere, IHOP is one of the only places with a functional smoking section. There are two waiters, Patrick and Shirley that are just consistently AWESOME. I always go later in the evening/night. It's not so busy, and there's no wait. Even though sometimes you have to listen to idiotic underclass college kids talking about the most inane stupid things. Even despite that, I'd really suggest this, especially if you're fond of the late-night meal.
