International House of Pancakes (page 1)

(hit "refresh" to get the most recent version of this page; click on photos for larger images)

Early International House of Pancakes buildings look similar to Woody's Smorgasburger buildings. However, the IHOP roof does not dip down in the middle. The International House of Pancakes chain was founded in 1958 with the first location opening in Toluca Lake, CA. There are now about 1,400 locations nationwide. However, there are only a few locations still operating in these A-frame buildings. Most of these buildings now houses other restaurants. For more, see this website.

The locations in this section are organized alphabetically by state.
