Why, oh why is there a need to devise bizarre food combos? And why, oh, why is IHOP trying to make its name now as a burger joint. Yes, they have more than pancakes, but when your damned name has pancakes—stick to what you do best (allegedly)—PANCAKES.
Perhaps that’s why they’ve created The Big IHOP Pancake Burger. Ugh. It’s everything you think it is:
“A world-famous buttermilk pancake griddle with Cheddar cheese and layered between two premium steakburger patties, then topped with American cheese, custom-cured hickory-smoked bacon and our signature IHOP sauce.”
This isn’t like the third bun in the middle of a Big Mac or Big Boy. This is a pancake. And sure, some people order up those big-ass meals with steak, eggs, and pancakes—but usually the pancake is dressed in the traditional way—with syrup and butter and more syrup.
If you’re game, get ready to spend over $11. Oh, and this burger alone is 1,310 calories. There’s no hopping away from IHOP with those numbers.
