    Kentucky is behind the times. We don't have an IHOP (at least to my knowledge). I know there isn't one in Lexington or any of the other decent-sized cities I've been to.

    All we have are Waffle Houses and Huddle Houses.

    Doc, you're lucky...you're within a stone's throw of both White Castle and Steak & Shake also. I'd take both of those over Perkins.

    I've spent many a night at Waffle House, wiping the excess grits from the side of my plate when i didn't order any. ;D

    I've never been to an IHOP.

    We're deprived of fast food restarunts in my area. Just your basic McDonnalds, BK, Wendy's, KFC, Subway and Jrecks.

    No Sonic, Jack, White Castle, nothin.

    There are no IHOPs in Kentucky. The closest one to my knowledge is in Tennessee.

    I will be a happy boy if IHOP ever decides to come here.

    Me included.

    I know the Waffle House near my hometown is downright awful and, to this day, I refuse to go there.

    Lyon's, Perkin's, Denny's, IHOP, Aunt Sarah's, Huddle House, Bob's ... they're all the same place.

    Dammit. I want pancakes now.

    Disagree. Denny's is decidedly more dirty and sleazy than Perkins and IHOP. Not sure about the others you mentioned.

    Waffle House, OTOH, is a different animal. I challenge any of you to enter one of those festering cinderblock greaseboxes and emerge without the smell of hashbrowns clinging to you for a good 45 minutes.

    As a veteran of this type of establishment, I can avow that there is no consistency in any chain (other than Waffle House). You might find a delightful Denny's alongside a putrid Perkin's and vice versa. I've seen 'em all and only Waffle House is wretched no matter where it sits.
