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.
Don't let those idioc commercials fool you!.
Their whipped-cream-bloated, crazed traffic cop commercials make me cringe. Frankly, I expected the food to be a greasy mess, and I don't know what possessed me to even try the place, other than its convenient location.
But I've ordered several of the lunch and breakfast items, and the food is actually pretty good. --A good step up from Denny's, actually, in my opinion. Service is attentive and usually pretty quick, the portions are generous, and everything, so far, has been quite tasty and well-prepared.
