Mardi Gras & National Pancake Day!

It's Fat Tuesday and IHOP is helping expand our waistlines by giving away FREE PANCAKES. Today only at IHOP, in honor of National Pancake Day, receive a FREE short stack of buttermilk pancakes between 7am and 10pm.

Did you know that today is an official state holiday in Louisiana? Celebrate Mardi Gras with the infamous Hurricane cocktail, originally invented in Pat O'Brien's bar in New Orlean's French Quarter. For dinner, whip up some hearty jambalaya, a shrimp etouffee, or a big pot of gumbo ya ya. And because Mardi Gras is a celebration of excess, finish the night off with a colorful New Orleans king cake.

Happy Eating!
