Free Pancakes Tuesday at Local IHOP Restaurants

IHOP will serve up free pancakes throughout the valley Tuesday, with the hope diners will donate to charity in return.

For the seventh consecutive year, IHOP will offer a free short stack of its buttermilk pancakes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

For every short stack served, customers are asked to make a donation. Donations made at IHOPs in the Las Vegas area will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals.

Miss Nevada Alana Lee will be on hand from 7 to 11 a.m. to flip and serve pancakes to guests at IHOP at 7490 S. Las Vegas Blvd in Las Vegas.

Other available locations include:
