Most IHOP locations advertise that kids can eat for free with a paying adult. This usually applies between 4 to 10 pm, everyday… pretty sweet deal. What they don’t tell you is that at some locations, they aren’t allowed to just give it to you anymore. You have to ask for it. I thought that was ridiculous, since when we were at a local IHOP tonight, they had signs on most of the tables advertising that kids eat free. When we got the check, the kids meals were all added to the bill. When we asked the waitress, she told us that she will take the kids meals off the tab and that we just had to ask for it since they can’t just give it to us for free unless we ask first. Weird.
