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.
IHOP tows the cars of paying customers. – I am asking conscientious consumers who believe in voting with their dollars to boycott this establishment because they tow the cars of paying customers.
A week ago me and three friends met at the IHOP (International House of Pancakes) on Apache and Forrest. When one friend arrived at IHOP, he thought we were meeting by my dorm (which is literally across the street) and walking over, so he parked at IHOP, called us and walked across the street. And in less than 30 seconds walked BACK across the street and into IHOP.
His car was towed WHILE HE WAS INSIDE IHOP. We walked out, couldn't find his car and didn't panic. We thought that as PAYING CUSTOMERS, an honest mistake was made and they would take care of us. I immediately went back in and asked for the reciept, which the cashier gave me. As I did that, the one who's car was towed was on the phone with the towing contractor who told him we needed to get a note from IHOP's manager. So we asked and he began writing the note, and then for whatever reason he called the towing company.
Because the towing company's payed spotter (you know that this towing is lucrative for them if they pay a spotter to look for students) saw him cross the street he refused to write a note saying that we were paying customers.
I still can't believed this happened. We argued with him for a while, started out quite nice but it degenerated. I swear the manager was smiling for most of the time while telling us "there was nothing he could do." Ultimately he lied to us and said it was the responsibility of the hotel because they had contract with the towing company. So far, we have been unable to resolve this in a reasonable way.
