People who complain about carbohydrates and eat anything at IHOP are sending mixed messages. What could you get at IHOP that is: (a) good nutrition, and (b) good to eat?

Most people eat 3 and that equal to 1065 empty calories from cardboard and fat and sugar.
The carbohydrate content of one pancake is high, and its fiber content is low.

I don't know what is so wonderful about...
The friggin TASTE! Jeeze, does everything we put in our mouths have to be good for us? Sometimes a jones needs to be satisfied.

Default Here is a real coffee shop pancake.

Not some fake IHOP wannabe pancake. See if you can figure out the rest of this fresh from scatch food.

If I'm at home I make Aunt Jemima Complete Buttermilk. You just add water. The syrup has to be Mrs. Butterworths. None of that LITE stuff either.

If I'm out, it's IHOP all the way with their wonderful Butter Pecan syrup.

Yes!! This was about the taste. They don't have taste. They taste like a cardboard or a sponge... just try a bite of a plain pancake. No syrup, no fresh fruit, no butter or whatever. Plain pancake does not have taste. Like toast bread. Nothing. Nada. There is nothing nutrition in it also.
Only the toppings make it bearable.

Waffles are what I'm mainly referring to... there's nothing like a homemade waffle that's cooked in an old waffle iron. All those years of flavor build up on the iron and impart a delicious flavor. I use a 1935 Dominion Twin waffle iron. I never use my modern iron with Teflon cooking surfaces. Makes them taste like cardboard.

Well the thing next to the finger is a chicken fried steak, hash browns stacked in the back of the plate and eggs on the other side.

Obviously pancakes on the other plate.

This place only serves breakfast and lunch. Opens at 5 and closes at 4. Just like the good ol days.

You'll like the end of the vid.
