Conclusion

IHOP is a chain restaurant that specializes in pancakes. However, you can get an omelette without pancake batter, a burger, or a salad if you’re eating low carb.

Despite the delicious pictures on the IHOP menu, stay away from hashbrowns, pancakes, toast, fruit juices and fries, which are often served as side dishes. Stick with a house salad with ranch or steamed broccoli instead.
