IHOP to offer 55¢ pancakes Monday

Special to the Tribune-Star

TERRE HAUTE — IHOP restaurants are celebrating 55 years of serving guests by offering a short stack of its world famous buttermilk pancakes at a price worth celebrating, too — just 55 cents.

On Monday, the Terre Haute IHOP at 2901 S. Third St., will serve up a short stack of buttermilk pancakes, the restaurant’s original signature dish that started it all back in 1958, for 55 cents.

The original IHOP restaurant, known back then as the International House of Pancakes, was opened by founders Al and Jerry Lapin in July 1958 in the Los Angeles suburb of Toluca Lake, Calif.
