We live in Surprise and have an Ihop much closer to us but we always prefer to make the trip out to this location. Its not as crazy busy on Sat & Sun mornings. If there is a wait its not but a few mins. The restaurant itself is clean and tidy. Doesn't have that weird smell that other Ihops tend to have too. The staff is always friendly and the service is great. I never run out of tea. They sometimes have a balloon maker that works for tips and makes the kids cool balloon animals and such.
