IHOP tastes better, but its price is too high for the quality of food they're serving. They're also slow as balls.

Waffle House gives you better service at a lower price, and the establishments are usually a little more homey and diner-like, while IHOP tries to look more upscale than it really is.

I'm in a region that was formerly dominated by Waffle House, but which is now firmly up IHOP's ass, and I miss Waffle House and local diners immensely.
>>
>>8447689
>>8447599
Waffle House is far better than IHOP due to - anon is right - sincerity; IHOP is trying too hard.
It's also due to the fact that the ONLY edible thing on the IHOP menu is the breakfast cake. The eggs always come out cold, the hashbrowns are always soggy, and the breakfast meats have always obviously been sitting in a hot drawer for a while.
WH, on the other hand, cooks everything to order, delivers all food upon completion (their tiny floor plan allows them to do this) so it's steaming hot, and serves a much better variety of food than IHOP. Plus hashbrowns in the ring are GOAT.

That's not an accurate map. I saw a shit ton of Waffle Houses when we drove from NorCal to Texas. We don't have them in NorCal, but there were plenty starting in Phoenix and going east. Doesn't matter much to me, though, I don't like either place.
>>
>>8447724

There's a lot of holdout Waffle Houses in that area, but IHOP has been slowly gaining dominance for the past 20 years now.

Virginian narrowly within your yellow waffle house line that prefers IHOP to Waffle House 110%. Waffle house is just plain nasty. The only times I went there were never to eat but to have a cup of coffee and cigarettes with friends after a night of drinking. We never ate that shit.

Waffle House, Nashville pride.
>>
>>8447699
Agreed. Waffle House has a much simpler menu and the quality of the food is more or less consistent. The solid items that they do have are all wide open to custom ordering and the menu makes that clear. I remember when they used to have signs that warned "no sharing" so you would have to get it to-go if you wanted the best deal since everything is a better deal if you get a huge mess of it. My buddy and my after-the-bars-close usual was double waffle and triple hash browns smothered, covered, topped. That's plenty for two people and it's only like $12
>>
Tfw love waffle house but live in Alaska

Waffle House is great. Just avoid it on Sundays and the hours when people are leaving nightclubs.

Ihop is good but I only go there because all the eateries here in Seattle is staffed by hipsters that demand 40+% tips whilst giving mediocre, at best, customer service.

>>
Ugh, I hate when people say every restaurant in a franchise is equal and comparable.
They may have standardized menus, but the talents of the cooks, the skills and efforts of the wait staff, their moods and level of effort on that particular day, how well trained employees are, the restaurant location/appearance, freshness of ingredients, cleanliness, generosity of portions, management competency, pricing, time of day and how busy the store is compared to how many people are working... it all varies by wide margins.
How can you even make these comparisons? It all comes down to local knowledge of who is good, when and where. Even a franchise has a local flavor.

Between those two, IHOP

However, there's a much better place that I go to called the sloppy waffle. It's in Newington, Connecticut.

This is what I got last time. It's called the spicy jeff. It's two leige waffles (They're waffles made with dough not batter) with their amazing fried chicken breast, egg, maple syrup, and hot sauce in between. Together they make for an excellent flavor sensation.

This shit literally helped revive me on new years day after having one of the worst hangovers of my life.
>>
IMO Waffle House and it's not even close. IHOP is just Denny's for slightly less poor people.
>>
>>8449018

Same here. Absolutely no reason to ever eat IHOP over WaHo though unless it's that one time a year I go and try to pretend I can eat a lot of pancakes.

I had a hot chicken benedict in Nashville a few months ago that sounds a lot like that. Waffles instead of English muffins and maple hollandaise sauce. Good stuff.

I live in Washington. I want to trade. IHOP is easily outclassed by Dennys and Sharis. Waffle House isn't as good, but it's cheap as fuck and they're open 24/7 like Dennys. It's like the perfect drunk food.
>>
>>8448472
Some of the "signature items" might be pre-made by the franchise and simply reheated per directions. And certain portion sizes might be required for consistency, so they can advertise calorie counts.
Other things like the size of the pile of hash browns and how crisp they are cooked is of course going to vary. And the intangibles like the attitude of the wait staff, general cleanliness of the kitchen, dining room and bathrooms, quality of the seating, and whether or not the clientele is a bunch of ghetto coons, that all depends on local knowledge. Then there's management which has some discretion over levels of staffing, pricing, behavior, and things like making sure the fryer oil is fresh and filtered regularly. I see huge differences from one restaurant to another. It makes it very hard to compare, because each franchise has "good" and "bad" locations.
>>
All star special wins 10/10. Fuck IHOP

Is IHOP even open 24 hours? I'd imagine that Perkins or something of the like would be tops in Wisconsin due to all the drunk dudes wandering around at 2am.

I will prefer IHOP until waffle house gets with the times and starts using a point of sale system instead of writing out the prices and totaling it by hand. Do all waffle houses do this or only the ones in Louisiana? It doesn't work when the waiter doesn't know basic math. They fuck it up every single time

Went to a Waffle House in once. ONCE. It was if they had manufactured a spray made of crisco and tobacco tar and used that to clean every surface.

That was 7 years ago.
>>
>tfw no IHOP or Waffle House near me

It probably wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't entirely populated by black people constantly
>>
>>8449010
Eh, Perkins quality dropped drastically like 10 years back and never managed to recover to their old baseline.
Denny's is hit-or-miss, and that one gay busboy hated me so we never went back.
IHOP is expensive and always full of either children or drunks.
Wafflehouse is the superior choice in all aspects.
>>
>>8449553
Denny's is my fucking shit. Unlimited pancakes for like 4 bucks? Fuck yeah. Grand Slamwich? In my fucking belly bro. Spiderman pancakes? In it to win it. Their expanded menu with dinner items? Get that shit outta my face I dont eat anything but bfast at Denny's. That mess is sacrilegious

Nothing autist about not wanting industrial HFCS with a combination of chemicals to produce a "maple" flavor slathered on your pancakes. In fact, I would say it's the other way around.

Ohio here, I know of maybe one waffle house in like a 50 mile radius and I'm not even sure if it exists anymore.
IHOP however...
>>
>>8449803
If you're eating unlimited pancakes from fucking Denny's, I don't think worrying about fake sugar or your overall health is really a top priority
>>
>>8449727
i'm pretty sure these kind of places don't allow you to bring your own food
>>
>>8449843
Why wouldn't they? The cost is still baked into the price, yet you don't use it, meaning they save on raw materials.
>>
>>8449853
many food places have a general rule that you're not allowed to consume self brought food items because you could as well just bring a home cooked meal in there to save money. the same reason why you're not allowed to bring your own drinks to the pub
>>
>>8449857
Yeah be we're talking about Dennys. I doubt the people that work there would give two shits if you brought your own syrup.

my only problem with waffle house & IHOP is that they don't use real butter when cooking your eggs or hashbrowns. They use some king of butter imitation vegetable oil product to save money.

Food science is literally the art of cheating you out of expensive ingredients.

But you can't really complain about that if you are eating at Waffle house. For the money it is hard to beat.

You seem like a man who loves soft damp bread. White Castle's prices have literally doubled in the last 20 years unlike any other place. I haven't eaten there with any frequency since their "Crave" advertising campaign failed so spectacularly and half shut down. There used to be a White Castle right between those Waffle Houses, right by the ghost mall represented by the big empty parking lot outerbelt loops. I make a pretty decent home made slider though. Skyline is really and truly all about the pillowy buns. Mmmmmm...
