A few years ago, IHOP offered an All You Can Eat pancake deal for around 5 smack-a-rooni's. Well, it's back and just as awesome as ever. You people should be excited. I hate IHOP but love this deal.

GLENDALE, CA, Jan 02, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- For those looking to refuel after the holidays or find a break from the winter woes, IHOP (NYSE: IHP), one of America's favorite family restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, invites guests to enjoy All You Can Eat Pancakes any time of day from now until February 18. IHOP's golden, fluffy, award-winning buttermilk pancakes are available in combos served with all the favorites, and when ordered with IHOP's Never Empty Coffee Pot, promise to make both guests and their wallets happy.

"We know our guests and their families are extremely busy following the holidays, and our All You Can Eat Pancakes are our way of giving them the tasty, wholesome food they crave at a great value," said Carolyn O'Keefe, chief marketing officer of IHOP Corp. "Nothing beats the cold weather better than our delicious, fresh pancakes and hot coffee that keep coming until you have had your fill."

IHOP's All You Can Eat Pancake combos start at $4.99 and include two buttermilk pancakes, eggs any style, crispy hash browns, and a choice of pork sausage links, hickory smoked bacon or ham. Pancakes are then brought out three at a time until the guest is satisfied. For an additional cost, guests can add IHOP's Never Empty Coffee Pot, available in regular and decaf, to their order and enjoy unlimited cups of coffee with their meal.

Hurry in soon, because IHOP's All You Can Eat Pancakes are available for a limited time only at participating locations. Pricing may vary by location. For more information or to find an IHOP location, please visit www.ihop.com.

Why do you hate IHOP, HD? I've never had anything less than yummy food and great service there.

IHOP won't let you loiter and play cards, which is annoying, though understandable. Some friends spent New Year's this year doing "24 hours at IHOP" though, where I don't know what kind of debauchery went on, so I guess they're selective about what they allow.

Dennys doesnt give a shit if you live in their restaurant

We used to go to Denny's all the time in college. Get a group of 5-12 people and drive up there, everyone gets their favorites -- be it the buffalo chicken sandwich, moons-over-my-hammy, or one of the many skillets (meat lovers was my fave). Good times. We always had the same waitress, this bigger woman named Terri. She was the only one who would ever put up with our loud, obnoxious bullshit. I foget when it started, but at some point we began including the words "big ass" in everything we ordered. Like "the big ass meat lovers skillet" or "moons over my big ass". She'd laugh along, and ask if we wanted a big ass glass of water or OJ. One of the denny's by school closed down, so we had to start going to the other one, the Terri-less one. It wasn't nearly as good, and the manager was a dickhead. They always forgot to bring out tabasco sauce after we'd ask for it, it was definitely a subpar denny's, if that's possible. Gradually, like all good things, it came to an end and we just stopped going. You grow up at some point and want to eat breakfast in the morning instead of at 1:30am when you're still buzzed.
So my roommate from college tried to recapture that feeling a couple of months ago. He and his wife went into a denny's and they got a booth towards the back of the restaurant. They had gotten their drinks and made their orders with a waitress who wasn't memorable at all. Before their food came out, another family came into the back room, but they had some problems. Those problems being that the mom didn't have any arms, and neither did the child (3-5 yrs old, something like that). Must've either been a dominant defective gene, or just a really abusive husband/father. So they were kind of weirded out by that. My friend noticed the lady wasn't wearing shoes, and that's gross -- especially on the red & tan carpet they have at Denny's. You know they're not vacuuming every night. The food came out for he and his wife, and they started eating. Then a plate of nachos arrived for the 3 person family with 2 arms. Like US Customs Agent Dave Kujan dropping his coffee mug when he realized that Verbal Kint fabricated most of the story, a lightbulb went off in my friend's head. A split second later, the woman began feeding herself nachos with her bare feet. He and his wife immediately threw some cash on the table and left before vomiting all over Denny's.

Went to brunch @ IHOP one New Year's Day with a bunch of hungover pals who'd spent the night at my place following a drunken rumpus. A wedding reception was going on across the aisle from us. The bride, groom, and dozen guests were there in their wedding clothes--now that's a celebration.

edit: oh man, kmac wins!

PPS: As a kid, it was a big treat to go to IHOP because the only one locally was in the SF airport terminal. My parents had friends who lived near there and we'd have pancakes for dinner at the airport. Now that I think about it--wtf?

I remember Denny's used to have a thing where you would eat for free on your Birthday. From age 15 to 24 I ate there with my friends at 12:01 am on my birthday. Good times.

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’
"

Hot damn, kmac - that story paid off better than Robbie Gould's field goal last weekend. Nice set-up too - with the carpet description. I'm not sure if I will ever look at a plate of nachos the same way again, though.
