Free pancakes at IHOP? Believe it.

Another day, another reason to celebrate some kind of free food.

National Pancake Day is upon us, my friends, and as is the tradition since 2006, IHOP is rolling out the free flapjacks. Get some.


Get a free short stack of pancakes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 12.

All ya gotta do is show up to your local IHOP and you’ll get a short stack of their Original Buttermilk Pancakes — totally free. Some locations will even be open until 10 p.m. (check your local restaurant for specific times).


Still, bring some money — IHOP is raising money for charities treating kids with critical illnesses.

Any donations you make will benefit Children’s Miracle Network hospitals, Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.


It’s one stack per customer, and you can’t take the goods to-go.

So sit down and enjoy yourself, alright?



If you’re still hungry, IHOP’s new OREO pancakes also help charities.

IHOP’s new OREO Oh My Goodness pancakes — the creation of a six-year-old chef — can’t really be called breakfast because it looks like a freaking dessert. Not saying I won’t get it for breakfast, but man! A dollar from the sale of every OREO® Oh My Goodness pancake stack or breakfast combo goes to support the IHOP Free Pancake Day charities. They’ll be on the menu now through April 14.


Of course, there’s no shortage of ways to get free pancakes.
