Used to be a good place to eat. – I had eatten here many times before late night when no one but the wafflehouse was still open.
The last time I ate there was probably 2 or 3 months ago, and everything was absolutely horrendous. It took 15 minutes for our waitress to see to us and get us drinks and she had about 7 tables.
Ordered cheese sticks for an appetizer and they came lukewarm to cold. As if they had been microwave thawed and served to us JUST as they had de-iced.
I had ordered some kind of roast beef and requested a ceasar salad.
The salad...errr plain lettuce on a hot plate came without any dressing or croutons. When I requested dressing the waitress didnt even make eye contact she just held up her hand with her index finger raised in the air. I waited for her to get done and she went to the kitchen for what seemed forever and then the MANAGER brought our food out apologizing for our waitress being slow. He was a man of iranian desent (and no I meant nothing by that comment) and had about the same social intelligence and tact as a porcupine. I honestly felt despised for even walking in.
I slammed my plate of lettuce down and said "Just go ahead and take this back, there was no dressing and no croutons and it was served on a HOT PLATE. I'M SURE YOU CAN RE-USE IT LATER."
My fiance had ordered a strawberry crepe and ended up getting what seemed to be a triangular shaped block of wood that was so stale that I couldnt cut it with a STEAK knife. Not even my trusty gerber pocket knife managed to STAB into it.
Her eggs were nothing but goosh and slop, her hashbrowns looked like they had been deep fried and plated in a puddle of GREASE.
My food oddly enough was passable. The roast beef was steaming hot so I knew it was safe to eat.
The potatoes were cold but there again tasted ok so I ate them. the mac and cheese I got with it looked like it had been microwaved the bejesus and back so I didn't bother touching it.
We waited THIRTY MINUTES for a bill and after being ignored TWICE I turned to my fiance and said fairly loud and clear "lets get the hell out of here, they obviously don't want my money so they can EAT my bill."
5 other parties who had been neglected at the time followed suite and that's the LAST time I will be seen in the highway 153 IHOP.
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.
