Hi everyone,

My husband loves going out for breakfast and a Waffle House is moving into our town. I will call them once they are open, but does anyone know if Waffle House of IHOP is safe for my PA daughter to eat in?

Thank you so much,

I have eaten at IHOP a million times with no incident. They do have other nuts, but no peanuts to my knowledge. It always pays to ask, though...

IHOP is definitely not in my comfort zone.
They offer a type of pancake with nuts in them and use the same griddle for all the pancakes.

IHOP has accomodated my PN/TN child in the past by using a seperate griddle to cook his pancakes.

I just saw an IHOP commercial last night on tv advertising some new special which had lots of nuts on top of the pancakes. I'm sorry I don't have any more details, I was hoping to see the commercial again, but haven't yet. When I saw it, I instantly remembered this post and wanted to give you a heads-up right away. I wouldn't feel safe there.
Stay safe,

When I drove past our local IHOP and I read their sign out front that said "Try our peanutbutter pancakes!" I knew I would never be returning with my kids.
I'm sure that it was just a temporary promotion but still, I'll never feel safe going back there now.

I wouldn't take anyone with a nut allergy there. I'm 30yo with PA and other nuts(but less severe) and I had a reaction there. This was a while ago and maybe things have changed but they used to have some sort of pecan pancakes, and I figured it was a result of cross-contam. They only had one large griddle that they did not wipe-down between orders.

I agree w/ everyone else IHOP is definitely out of my comfort zone. They use lots of nuts plus my DD and DS are both allergic to eggs so that place is a definite no-no for us. However, I have never seen actual peanuts on the menu but plenty of pecans and walnuts.

What about Waffle House? Do they have nuts on the menu?

Maybe specials depend on the location. I would call before going regardless. We've been in the past with no problems and when I called a few weeks ago they told me about the special with nuts on top of it. We haven't been back since but will return once they have pn and tn free specials.
