While International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is famous for its pancakes and breakfast menu, they also serve a selection of mouthwatering ultimate steakburgers that have become very popular.
“We’ve always had burgers, but we included four new ones, and it’s all-natural, 100 percent USDA Choice, Black Angus beef,” says Darlene Balcita, area director. “Everyone knows IHOP for its pancakes but one of our new slogans is ‘We burger as good as we pancake.'”
Added just a couple of months ago are Cowboy BBQ, Mushroom & Swiss, Jalapeno Kick and Big Brunch. All are served with your choice of french fries, onion rings, hash browns or two buttermilk pancakes. You also can add a soup or side
salad for $2.99.
Can’t decide between breakfast or a burger? Try Big Brunch Ultimate Steak-burger ($14.99), which is like breakfast on a burger with hickory smoked bacon, fried egg, crispy browned potato, American cheese and IHOP’s signature sauce.
But if it’s breakfast you crave, of course, you can never go wrong with IHOP’s original pancakes, breakfast combos, omeletes and griddle favorites, such as waffles, French toast and crepes.
For pancakes, Balcita suggests New York Cheesecake ($15.39) featuring four buttermilk pancakes filled with tasty cheesecake bites and topped with sweet glazed strawberries.
“It’s one of the popular pancakes,” she says. “All of our pancakes are very fluffy and tasty. It just melts in your mouth.”
Another IHOP breakfast favorite is Spicy Poblano Omelette ($18.99) consisting of fire-roasted poblano peppers, red bell peppers, onions, shredded beef, Jack and cheddar cheese blend, fresh avocado, poblano cream and chopped serrano peppers. Diners can pick between three buttermilk pancakes, hash browns, buttered toast or fruit to enjoy on the side.
Earlier this year, IHOP opened a new 24-hour location near Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu, followed by a restaurant in Ewa Beach this past summer.
There also are IHOPs in Waikiki (also open 24 hours), Ala Moana and Pearl City on Oahu, and in Hilo and Kailua-Kona on the Big Island.
The casual, family-friendly restaurants also offer a Kids Eat Free promotion from 4 to 10 p.m. daily. Children age 12 and under can enjoy a free kids meal with the purchase of an adult entree.
