Get a free stack of pancakes today at Orlando IHOPs


Get a free fluffy stack of buttermilk hot cakes today at IHOPs across Orlando in honor of National Pancake Day.

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on March 12, IHOP will be offering a complimentary short stack at certain locations in Orlando, which you can find here.

IHOP is encouraging customers who come in for the free pancakes to donate organizations helping children battling critical illnesses, like the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Shriners Hospitals for Children and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Go for a late lunch or dinner breakfast, but remember: The deal is for dine-ins only, and each guest gets only one free short stack.
