IHOP (International House of Pancakes) has a new selection on their menu right now called “Bacon ‘N Beef Burgers“. The selection includes: Cheeseburger, Bacon & Egg Cheeseburger, Bacon Cheeseburger, Mega Mushroom Burger, and Monster Burger.
Ric and I decided to try some of these burgers the other night. Ric got the Cheeseburger and I got the Mega Mushroom Burger. We both got onion rings as our side.
The downside to IHOP is always leaving with that “IHOP smell”. It sticks to your clothes. It’s that grease, dirty kitchen smell. But the food is usually pretty good… depending on what you get. And you can’t deny they are better than Denny’s for that late night dinner/snack. At least that’s what I have noticed with our selection of locations.
The up side is that the IHOP we go to always has the friendliest night staff. They always crack me up and they are always smiling. This may be because my boyfriend is always able to get the best out of people.
The food was alright. The onion rings were kinda greasy. I would have probably enjoyed them more any other time but not as late as we went. The burger was delivered frozen to their location for them to re-cook (as the waitress told us). It tasted that way. It was still okay for a pre-made burger. They had blended the bacon into their patties. It had a smoked flavor to the burger but you could barely taste any bacon in it. Some burger selections had additional strips of bacon, but not the ones we chose. It would have been better to have the bacon strips in this case.
You don’t go to IHOP with great expectations. It’s reserved for late night food… usually when you’ve been out drinking or maybe while you’re on the road. So to keep this in mind, the burgers were good. Just ‘good’.
