Freezing ice and a winter storm left many in my town of 42,000 without power or water last Thursday evening, which included the majority of businesses. It was difficult to find a restaurant or fast food where you could get a bite to eat. The west end of town where I lived was completely shut down so my husband and I drove over to the east end. There was a choice of Denny’s or IHop. We decided to try IHop and wait in line for a table.
The restaurant was crowded since it seemed that most of Belleville decided to visit IHop, also. I am glad we had cash because there was a sign on the door, which read, “ Our credit machine is down.” Trying to serve this many people in one evening must have been a new experience for this restaurant since they ran out of everything. The servers were friendly, and did their best to accommodate everyone. I ordered the International Passport, which includes two eggs, one piece of bacon, one piece of sausage, and my choice of pancakes.
This restaurant would not normally be a choice of mine, but due to the circumstances I found Ihop to be a pretty good selection. The menu has many breakfast items, lunch, dinner, and salads and soups. The prices are reasonable for the amount of food you are served. To locate an Ihop close to you go to http://www.ihop.com/
