We wanted the Grampa Don's order from the senior menu but they said they weren't serving that today. Guess I'll be going to IHOP from now on.

I always get the baked apple pancake, it takes about 20 minutes or more to cook so be prepared to wait for it. Staff is always friendly, just wish I could order my pancake ahead of time so that it's ready when we get there,...More
