Gather your change, because IHOP is selling 60-cent pancakes in honor of its 60th anniversary!
The restaurant chain, which made headlines earlier this summer for an ill-fated publicity stunt in which it changed its name to IHOb in an effort to sell hamburgers, is back to doing what it does best – making pancakes.
“We’re giving YOU 60-cent pancakes in honor of OUR birthday. It makes perfect sense. And by ‘perfect sense’ we mean “60 cents,” the IHOP Twitter account shared on Monday, July 16.

As the tweet suggested, IHOP is giving customers a three-pancake short stack for just 60 cents on Tuesday, July 17, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. “Millions and millions of people had a lot of fun ‘blaying’ along with the idea of flipping the ‘P’ in our name to a ‘B’ and guessing what the ‘B’ could be. However, we are, and always will be, the International House of Pancakes,” chief marketing officer Brad Haley said in a press release referencing the controversial name change.
“The IHOP name is synonymous with pancakes, pancakes, pancakes – a rallying cry that sets our menu and our restaurants apart from every other dining destination,” Haley continued. “To celebrate six decades of pancakin’ and the love our guests have shown us since we first opened our doors back in 1958, we’re treating folks to a 60-cent short stack of our world-famous buttermilk pancakes – the pancake that started it all – on Tuesday, July 17.”
Not surprisingly, Twitter was ecstatic at the idea of super affordable but tasty pancakes. Check out some of the funniest reactions below:
