I know that IHOP is considered to be more of a restaurant for seniors, but my friends and I love it (we're in our mid-20's). They have really good food and the best thing is that their is a large variety on the menu. You can get breakfast, a sandwich, a salad, a burger, or a complete chicken dinner. The IHOP in Santa Maria has pretty slow service even if it's not busy. You will probably have a fairly significant wait for your food. However, the servers are very friendly and attentive. Also, the rrestaurant is very family friendly and is always nice about finding a table that will suit your needs (i.e. - room for a couple of highchairs, etc).
