It's an IHOP "express" - more a fastfood than breakfast thing. But there is no other IHOP in the center of San Diego. Probably they will Start one soon!?!?

The staff here was fantastic. Seated right away, ordered and received hot fresh food. Loved the waffles and eggs. Very clean IHOP with service oriented staff.

Ihops are awesome. This one is no exception, brilliant prices for brilliant food, just don't expect to fit in much after eating here! Huge portions Ofcourse.. Pretty average service, but I don't think it's really about that when you go here...

I had to wait at least 20 minutes to get a table but it was worth waiting for those pancakes. I don't know if it was the hunger or the pancakes were really good. Btw early sunday mornings its really packed
