THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED International House of Pancakes (IHOP) Restaurant Review: From the easily recognizable blue roof, to the accents of red throughout the restaurant, the L.A.-based IHOP has been serving no frills breakfasts and full dinners since 1958. A wide variety of pancakes, crêpes, waffles, and eggs are offered daily, but if meat, pasta, or a salad is preferred, it’s there for the asking. Their Patty Melts---a cheeseburger with fried onions served on grilled rye bread---is legendary. Ask for coffee, and a pitcher is delivered to the table. Ask for syrup, and the waitress will kindly point to the choices residing on each table. As with most chains, quality of service and cuisine will tend to vary from location to location, so keep this mind. Bottom line: is there ever not a good time for breakfast?
