Hungry students craving breakfast any time of day can eat to their heart’s delight until March 4 at IHOP.
IHOP, 3750 S. Clack St., is offering “All You Can Eat Pancakes” for the most ravenous of patrons. The deal entails breakfast meals starting at $4.99 that include two hash browns, two eggs, two meats of choice and, of course, two pancakes.
After students finish eating the two pancakes, they simply can request more until full.
Abilenians recently found a similar breakfast deal at Denny’s, 120 E. Overland Trail, with the free Grand Slam meal. This meal was almost identical to the IHOP promotion but was limited to one per customer and allowed no take-outs. The breakfast, that included pancakes, bacon, eggs and sausage, was free to every customer who requested it Feb. 3 from 6 a.m.-2 p.m.
Cody DeAngelo, assistant manager at IHOP, said the restaurant’s unlimited pancake deal was not offered in response to Denny’s Grand Slam.
“It is something we do every year, and our promotions just happen to fall around the same time,” he said.
Jeremy Recek, assistant manager at Denny’s, said the Grand Slam deal went very well.
“Everyone really enjoyed it,” he said.
If students missed the deal from Denny’s or did not make it to IHOP on time, they still can enjoy other breakfast promotions.
Recek said Denny’s may offer the Grand Slam again, and DeAngelo said IHOP definitely will run the “All You Cant Eat Pancakes” offer in the future.
Tuesday is national Pancake Day, and if customers donate to the Miracle Children’s Network, IHOP will give them a free stack of pancakes.
If students are longing for some flapjacks this week, they can loosen their belts and head on to Denny’s or IHOP for a sweet dish to satisfy their cravings.
