IHOP was founded in 1958 and has more than 1,600 restaurants in the United States, Puerto Rico, and internationally.
We are working on validating Veterans Day discounts for 2024. Below is last year’s Veterans Day discount.
If you are a military member or veteran, you can take advantage of IHOP’s special Veterans Day free pancake meal. IHOP’s Veterans Day promotion is only available at participating locations, so double-check with your local IHOP before you go.
Participating IHOP restaurants offer all veteran and active-duty service members a stack of red, white and blueberry pancakes topped with glazed strawberries, blueberry compote, and whipped topping.
The discount offer may vary by location. Some restaurants may offer a free breakfast combo. Call your local IHOP restaurant to confirm what offer they offer before you make a visit.
IHOP also offers ongoing discounts of up to 20% daily on all IHOP breakfast and menu items, depending on location.
Not all locations participate in Veterans Day promotions. Please call ahead to verify.
When Veterans Can Get Their Meal
IHOP’s Veterans Day deal is available on Nov. 11, at participating locations.
You can order from IHOP’s Veterans Day special menu any time between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Veterans Day.
Who’s Eligible for IHOP’s Veterans Day Deal?
All retired and active-duty military personnel are eligible for one IHOP’s Veterans Day meal. Family or friends who go to IHOP with you must pay full price for any menu items they order.
As long as you bring in proof of service and your IHOP location is participating in the offer, you should be able to enjoy a stack of pancakes on the house. Depending on where you go, pancakes may not be the only free meal available to you.
