Sometimes you just want some comfort food that isn't hard to get. IHop works for me - I love the chicken fried steak and pancakes. It is what it is - grease soaked, non healthy, processed food. But for that sometimes it just hits the spot. Plus my kid loves eatinng there, I often have coupons, its reasonable with little wait, and you can have breakfast whenever. I will say service usually sucks, but I don't usually mind.
