Product Snapshot: IHOP has announced that it will now offer made-to-order Griddle Combos, Steakburgers, and Chicken Sandwiches on its Choice menu. The Choice menu is available across all dayparts, making it easier for guests to order their IHOP meal combinations both in-restaurant and through the brand’s updated mobile app and website.

Adding to the menu is the return of two IHOP seasonal favorites: Pumpkin Spice Pancakes and Scary Face Halloween Pancakes.

With more than 20 griddle flavors on our menu there’s a ton of choice for our guests, including our Buttermilk Pancakes, crepes, and French toast to build into a combo of your liking,” said Kieran Donahue, chief marketing officer, IHOP. “There is a genuine sense of joy that comes with making and serving delicious food at a great price, and we know that any choice a guest makes will put a smile on their plate.”
