If you'd like your weekly alotment of sugar and salt in one sitting, this place is where to go .. .that being said, it's our vice on holidays at least once each visit to the USA.

Breakfast nicely prepared and adequate, enough choice for all 4 of us (2 couples). No less expensive than hotel dining room though.

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...
