Happy National Pancake Day!
IHOP is giving away free pancakes today (Tuesday, Feb. 27) in honor of International House of Pancakes' "National Pancake Day." (Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, was earlier this month and is also known as "Pancake Day.")
To get a free short stack of pancakes, simply go to any IHOP location between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. and ask for yours. (Limit one per guest; dine-in only.) Select locations will offer extended hours until 10 p.m.
While customers aren't required to pay for their pancakes, IHOP is asking people to instead make a donation to charity partners Children's Miracle Network Hospitals! A short stack of original buttermilk pancakes typically costs around $4.79, if you're wondering what's a good amount to donate.
To help get ya started ----
In the restaurant realm, there is such a thing as having too many menu options. With nine different types of pancakes alone, IHOP is guilty of this crime against culinary capacity. Thankfully, Extra Crispy took the time to rank all nine:
- Original Buttermilk Pancakes
- New York Cheesecake Pancakes
- Double Blueberry Pancakes
- Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- Strawberry Banana Pancakes
- Harvest Grain ’N Nut Pancakes
- Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pancakes
- Rooty Tooty Fresh ’n Fruity Pancakes
- Red Velvet Pancakes
