IHOb: International House of Burgers

IHOb: International House of Burgers

"Can't wait to try a burger from the place that decided pancakes were too hard", the fast-food chain tweeted in response to the news.

The restaurant chain switched up its name and revealed that it now will be known as IHOb, or International House of Burgers. "Consequently, we needed to make a bold signal to disrupt people's thinking about IHOP and make it IHOb'". The name is not a permanent change and, yes, they will still serve pancakes.

"Burgers so burgerin' good, we changed out name to IHOb".

The restaurant's website, still found at www.ihop.com claims their new Ultimate Steakburgers are "un-burgerin"-believable".

You may have thought IHOP changed the last letter in their name for any number of reasons; however, the change from P to B only means one thing. (That's the second highest grade the USDA gives.) Each patty is smashed on the grill, loaded with your choice of toppings and tucked between a toasted brioche bun.

Of course, it didn't help that the chain failed to include "burgers" as an option on its Twitter poll. Can't make it to IHOb?

The former leader in much needed hangover food has chose to enter into the burger joint business. Others were concerned that the pancakes would disappear: "No need to worry, the pancakes aren't going anywhere!"

"The whole goal of this effort was to convince people that we were just as serious about our burgers as we are about our pancakes, ' Haley said". They showed us why America needed a restaurant with a pancake-based menu.

IHOP's specialty is pancakes, we value IHOP as a place to get pancakes, and we shouldn't forget that IHOP is a place for pancakes.
