We had been hiking all day (10 hours) and needed to carb load. :) we stopped here on Thanksgiving day and all 4 of us ordered the egg no pancakes. Fantastic! But more important, our server was EXCEPTIONAL. She was working a holiday, had a pleasant demeanor and personality. Thank you!!

It's an IHOP and they are making the company proud. Seems to be well managed. Food was very good and presented well. Service was exceptionally friendly and efficient.

However since carbs are the enemy I stick with eggs. All the staff were very nice and it was a little busy, so I always take that as a sign of good management. Good food (spinach omelet), friendly staff.

Pretty standard diner with solid reliable food in decent portions. We could have ordered less and still been full: good for a take-out to help with breakfast the next day!

We did the bay program at the Caverns and also got on the Full Moon Night Hike surprisingly after only being on the waitlist. It was almost 10pm and we hadn't eaten since lunch and had been traveling all day (two flights and a car ride from El Paso)so we were exhausted and hungry at this point! We normally avoid... More

I-hop was our choice for dinner. My companion chose the fried chicken dinner, which was generous and delicious. I chose the Bennie which was good and plentiful. We were satisfied with our meal and the service was good. This was a weekday evening.

Our dinner was average for an IHOP. Nothing overly spectacular but I have to say it was clean and appeared to be only 3-4 years old. Would think that waitresses would have some type of dress code.

We missed continental breakfast at our hotel, so we went to IHOP to grab something to eat. This was your very typical IHOP. Speed of service was moderate. The waitress was friendly. The food was good, and the tables were clean. If you don't have ridiculously high standards, you'll get what you're asking for, here.

Dropped in here on journey back to our hotel after seeing bat flight at Carlsbad Caverns. Good food and good service. Pleasant young waiter who had just started was quite taken by my two teenage daughters which resulted in much giggling in the kitchen and service with a red face.

Food and service was about average. Nothing spectacular but average. The restaurant was clean and well staffed. It was a little noisy for the middle of the morning. Prices were a little high for the amount of food served. The service was slow and we kept having to ask for the rest of our food.

Thank Pam V
