Travels in the South

20 Jun

Have you heard the recent uproar about the restaurant IHOP (International House of Pancakes) changing their name to IHOB (International House of Burgers)?  I know it’s a publicity stunt to get their burgers out there so you know my mom/dad had to give them a whirl.  Now, mom/dad had tried their burgers previous to this new promotion and they enjoyed them.

So off they went to the IHOB cause you know burgers are daddy’s specialty.  Currently during the promotion, you get a drink and endless fries with your choice of burger.  Did you hear that?  Endless fries.  Mom said she heard angels singing when she read that – my mom is so silly.  Burgers range from $7.00 to $11.00 and come in various forms.  Mom went with the Classic with Bacon and Cheese (how could you mom?).  Dad ventured out a bit more.  He got something  called a Big Brunch.  It had cheese, bacon, a fried egg and hashbrowns on it.  It was a monster!

So what did mom/dad think?  Both said they were good and they loved the french fries (crispy with a crunch and yes they got a refill of them).  These burgers for the price combining the fries and drink were a deal; however, the burgers themselves didn’t make their top 3 list of burgers they’ve tried.  They weren’t bad but they didn’t really stand out in flavor either.  Does that make sense?  They would eat them again for the mere price but wouldn’t go out of their way.

But hey, you make your decision.  Have you tried them yet?

    The fries sound great, but we don’t live anywhere near an IHOP.

      Houdini wondered the same thing. Sit near a wall, inside of your mom’s handbag. Be really quiet. I’m sure no one will even notice. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts with piggy laughter. Mom said she came so close to ordering a side of pancakes because it was so wrong to go there and not get some – XOXO – Bacon

    Whenever I get dragged to an IHOP (or IHOB), I always order the chicken strips. I don’t think they’ll change to IHOCS for my benefit. How about I just get the bottomless fries…

      OMP – Mom loves their chicken strips. You two or two of a kind. She’s never met chicken she hasn’t liked. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Most endless fries are mediocre so that’s not a selling point. But egg on anything spells awesome!

      Daddy loves eggs on anything – even his steak. But mom said these fries were exceptional. XOXO – Bacon

    IHOB isn’t nearly as catchy as IHOP. Maybe they are trying to compete with Red Robin?

      That’s what mom said she thought too. I mean it’s still IHOP. IHOB is just a publicity stunt. They will never be Red Robin. XOXO – Bacon

    Bacon, mom had never heard that IHOP was going to change it’s name. When mom and Dad go to Richmond, just outside Vancouver, they stay at a motel that has an IHOP attached. Mom has never had good luck with this IHOP and refuses to go anymore. They are knuckle heads in Richmond. Mom and dad willwait till they’re coming your way.

      Snorts and oinks. I think it’s just a publicity stunt to get peeps to come their burgers. Mom is not a huge fan of IHOP but the burgers weren’t bad. There are so many better restaurants to visit when ya’ll come this way. Some near a church down town that mom will circle 4-5 times – snorts with piggy laughter. Good times XOXO – Bacon

      I can imagine. Mom/dad have really cut back to maybe once or twice a week and that’s it. XOXO – Bacon
