IHOP’s New Griddle Melts

IHOP Orange, CA


This is a restaurant that always reminds me of my childhood. I can remember how excited I’d get when we got to go out to the International House of Pancakes, a place where it was perfectly acceptable to order pancakes for lunch or dinner – what a treat!

IHOP still has big fluffy pancakes, but they’ve also got a whole lot more. When I heard about the new Griddle Melts, I happily volunteered to try them out.

Griddle Melts are hand crafted sandwiches that can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Hand crafted is a phrase that is thrown around a lot these days even when it doesn’t really apply. I was happy to discover that these are actually hand crafted and made to order. A lot of chain restaurants are cutting corners and serving foods that have been partially or completely mass produced ahead of time. IHOP is not following that trend and the result is that their food is fresh and delicious.

Western Griddle Melt and Fruit

Each Griddle Melt features an omelet served on grilled artisan sourdough bread with your choice of fruit, hash browns or french fries. A half sandwich is just $4.99 and a whole is $7.99.

There are 3 varieties to choose from:

  • Spinach, Roasted Pepper & Cheese – fresh sautéd spinach, roasted red pepper and onions, provolone, parmesan and pepper jack
  • Western – smoked ham, peppers, onions, American cheese
  • Ham & Egg – ham, Swiss & American cheese

I don’t eat meat and was happy to see that one of the 3 options is vegetarian. The Spinach, Roasted Red Pepper & Cheese Griddle Melt is absolutely delicious. I was pleased to see and taste all of the fresh ingredients.

My son ordered the Western and thought it was really good, but decided that he would want to order the veggie one himself next time.

fresh fruit

The fresh fruit was actual fresh fruit that they prepared for us. I think the selection may vary some depending on what’s available, but ours was banana, pineapple, orange and honey dew. It had obviously just been cut and wasn’t a pre-packaged mix.

We ordered whole sandwiches, but a half was plenty for me. My teenage son said the whole sandwich was a perfect size, but he managed to make room for my other half. The meals are a good value for the money.

Service was great and the food was delicious. We enjoyed our meal out and plan to go to IHOP again.

    Ihop….I remember the first time I ever ate there….when was a kid. I was a very picky child, and was thrilled with a restaurant that served pancakes and other breakfast items….I was not used to having so many choices to choose from….I loved many breakfast dishes….yum. I still am a huge fan of pancakes, waffles, and many other breakfast foods…thankfully my tastes have expanded but I still love all my favorites from my childhood though my mother cannot stand the sight or smell of Mac and cheese becaue she cooked it so often for me! My husband is also a huge breakfast fan and I often cook breakfast for dinner at our house. Ihop is one of his faborite places to eat…..unfortunately we don’t go out much because he is medially disabled due to a failed back surgery from the marine Corp….so he is in constant pain despite medication which limits out restaurant visits to just occasionally but I often get us takeout from ih….yum. Fortunately for me, ihop is one of the closest restaurants to our house which means he is much more likely to go there than other places across town…. We would love to win this gc….would be great for me and him to use on a rare meal out together or for me to get us something to go….either way, ihop is great. Thanks for the great giveaway!
