I’ve always loved IHOP. It has a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, not all IHOP branches have a good reputation. On the other hand, the IHOP in Norridge impressed me on our visit.
On entering the place, I was surprised by how much space they have and the lighting is great! Unlike another IHOP place nearby, this one is well lit and the open space gives a warm and welcoming feeling. Since it is the holiday season, this IHOP is also decorated for the season. Their decorations were simple and did not crowd the restaurant at all.
I inspected everything. I had to. I checked all the napkins, I looked at the floor under the table. I made sure the chair was clean. I even went to the bathroom and was satisfied by the cleanliness. I gave each a thumbs up.
Of course, if you are a Chicagohousewifey, you’ll be looking for freebies or deals and guess what? Kids eat free on weekdays from 4pm with a purchase of one adult meal. A good deal!
