  • Some one who beats the current house record will get his or her meal for free
  • The person with the highest total for a restaurant as of January 26 will get a year of free pancakes
  • The top 10 totals as of January 26 in a participating metro region will compete in head to head “Pancake Bowl” contests on February 1 and the winner of those contests will receive a $500 IHOP gift card.
  • Sacramento, Des Moines, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Grand Rapids, Lafayette, IN and Rockford, IL are participating, it is not clear which other metro regions are holding contests.

update Los Angeles will also be holding a Pancake Bowl.

    Can someone place a call to locations in NYC NJ and PA . This is crazy . Only select restaurants way out west like Bismark ND? Not fair . The pancake bowl should apply nationwide or this is false advertising

    Does anyone have a good resource which locations are participating? I’m calling Colorado locations but so far no luck and there’s still a bunch left.
