Detroit to get world's first combination IHOP/Applebee's

Time to cancel that KC Meet-up and head to the Motor City instead.
The world's first combination IHOP and Applebee's restaurant will happen next year in downtown Detroit.
 
"This is the first IHOP/Applebee's combo that’s ever been built anywhere," Schostak said. The Schostak company "is proud to expand our portfolio by uniquely combining two nationally recognized and family-oriented brands."
Darn right. I'd be proud, too.
 
Read all about it.

I only go for the articles.
 
I love the hidden message in the IHOP menu.... that their omelets are made with a splash of their pancake batter.
Perfect for all you gluten free people.
 
Every one of their egg dishes has an asterisk next to them.  Warns you of potential death if eaten under-cooked...  at the bottom of the menu.
 
Okay,  I love the Swedish Pancakes which they now call crepes.

Can an unholy alliance of Waffle House and Chili's be far behind?

And I thought The KFC+Taco Bell+Pizza Huts were bad.
 
Like the Browns fans say every week this season, this is a new low

Not a chance. But there is at least one Tim Horton's-Wendy's here. It's a holdover from a couple of years ago when Wendy's owned Tim Horton's.

AppleHop, or IHOPplebee's if you prefer, is not a bad blend. There's an Applebee's near our place in NC and it sure looks like a missed sales opportunity on weekend mornings. We don't have many choices beyond Waffel Haus, so I think they could draw in a lot of breakfast customers who prefer a little less grease on their spoons.

WaffleHouse Cracker Barrel would be perfect as Cracker Barrel does not serve waffles.

There's a Cracker Barrel directly across the road from a Waffle House not too far from here, and it's the only Cracker barrel I've ever seen where there aren't long lines during breakfast hours. But there are people standing outside at the Waffle house waiting to get in the door.

I hate Applebee's. Don't mind IHOP for certain things, but some of their food is terrible. Had a hamburger omelette once.. guy recommended special limited time. It was horrible. Dry overcooked meat.
 
They have a KFC/Taco Bell/Long John Silver's in one.. my only thing is they let you customize anything on the Taco Bell menu now.. any sauce, any topping on any items.. they won't let me insert KFC items into the Taco Bell items.

Yes, a fast food with a waffles and chicken meal...maybe Popeyes instead of KFC,or Chick Fil A.

You know what's going to happen.. there will be 4 flavors of maple syrup on each table and someone is going to put it on their baked potato, steak, and chicken wings from Applebee's. Does Applebee's serve pizza? I can see someone putting it on pizza.

I enjoy Waffle House and I most certainly don't need to ask Mr. Hoffman.  I believe IHOP and Applebees to be two of the worst restaurant chains in America and combining them does little to change my opinion.  
 
You are free to pass or partake but my taste buds will guide me.

We did eat at a Long John Silver's/Rax a few months ago.
 
Only because I hadn't had Rax in 20 years. It was only OK.

I predict that Applebee's version of Detroit-style pizza will be proclaimed the finest in the land.

You can ask me anything. I'm an authority. I could have been The World's Foremost Authority, but Professor Irwin Corey refused to give up the title.
