Breakfast lovers, this one’s for you! Beginning January 4, 2017 and continuing through to February 14, 2017 IHOP will be offering all-you-can-eat pancakes for dine-in customers. Enjoy unlimited short stacks of their deliciously fluffy, golden buttermilk pancakes with the added option of fruit toppings for a limited time. The 24 hour breakfast chain announced the return of this fan favorite promotion via their official Instagram.

Vice president of marketing for IHOP, Kirk Thompson commented on the deal explaining, “Since the moment we opened 57 years ago, our guests have been able to get the perfect breakfast any time of day, and now, with the return of All You Can Eat pancakes, one of our most beloved traditions, it’s even easier for our guests and fellow breakfastarians to get their fill of our warm, delicious buttermilk pancakes, morning, noon and night through February 14 – and what better  time to end this promotion than Valentine’s Day, when breakfastarians can celebrate their love of IHOP!” Find out more about the promotion below.

The Promotion

While it’s technically not free pancakes, IHOP’s deal is almost just as good. For approximately $6, you can get a stack of five of their fluffy buttermilk pancakes, and once you’ve finished those, they’ll bring you an unlimited amount of short stacks (three pancakes a piece) until you’re satisfied. That’s right, depending on how determined you are, you could get anywhere from five to 20+ pancakes for just six bucks! Or if you’re looking for a little more variety, the deal also applies to their combo plate that consists of eggs, hash browns, two pancakes and your choice of breakfast meat for around $7. Clear the plate and your server will continue to bring you short stacks until you tap out.

There are some stipulations to be aware of, though. The deal only applies to their “Famous Buttermilk Pancakes,” meaning if you were planning on enjoying unlimited Red Velvet Pancakes, Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Pancakes, or New York Cheese Cake Pancakes, you’re out of luck. You can, however, add your favorite fruit topping for an additional cost and IHOP has a great selection to choose from. Try something traditional like blueberries or strawberries, or mix it up with cinnamon apples or peaches. You can change the topping for each stack, too; so if you start out with strawberries but are craving peaches, they’ve got you covered!

If your New Year’s Resolution was to eat healthier, try the paleo diet, or go gluten-free, you may want to postpone it until after Valentine’s Day. IHOP is offering up unlimited temptation by the short stack, and all for under 10 bucks! Treat your sweetie to something delicious on or before February 14 and keep your wallet and tummies full by checking out IHOP’s all-you-can-eat pancakes deal. It’s sure to satisfy that after New Year’s carb craving!
