The International House of Pancakes lives up to its name with its huge selection of pancakes, French toast, waffles, and other nummy breakfast foods. My favorite thing about IHOP is its many deals and limited-time menu items. If you've never been to IHOP, you're definitely missing out on an experience. If you're looking for good food on a budget, here are 11 dirt cheap IHOP menu items that give the most bang for your buck.

#SpoonTip: Prices may vary slightly depending on your location.

1. Original Full Stack Buttermilk Pancakes

Cost: $5.99 

Not one, not two, but FIVE fluffy buttermilk pancakes. And with IHOP's yummy variety of syrups (strawberry, blueberry, and butter pecan, to name a few), you're in for a yummy, simple breakfast at an incredibly affordable price. 

2. Pancake Combo

Cost: $8.99

This classic combo gets you two pancakes of your choice, two eggs served your way, a choice of either two sausage links or bacon strips, and golden hash browns. I can't complain at the price or the flavor.

3. Strawberry'N Cream Pancake Combo

Cost: $8.99

Two of IHOP's world famous buttermilk pancakes are topped with vanilla bean mousse and sweet glazed strawberries. You also get two eggs, a choice of either two sausage links or bacon strips, and golden hash browns. What a yummy, classic-sounding breakfast of champions. The only downside is that this is a limited-time menu item, so you might not be able to find this at your local IHOP. 

4. Tuxedo Pancake Combo

Cost: $8.99

Tuxedo pancakes consist of one chocolate, chocolate chip pancake and a buttermilk pancake topped with vanilla bean mousse, mocha mousse, and chocolate chips. Talk about dessert for breakfast. Let's not forget the two eggs, two sausage links or bacon strips, and golden hash browns.

5. Crepe Combo

Cost: $8.99

With this menu item, you get to choose your choice of crepe, and get two eggs, two sausages or strips of bacon, and golden hash browns alongside it. There's nothing like a good crepe, but with all those savory sides, you won't be disappointed. 

6. Breakfast Sampler

Cost: $9.39

The Breakfast Sampler comes with two eggs served your way, two hickory-smoked bacon strips, two pork sausage links, two pieces of ham, two buttermilk pancakes, and golden hash browns. I love having both sausages AND bacon on my plate, so this is a great option. If you're the kind of person who likes a little bit of everything, this is the dish for you.

7. Split Decision Breakfast

Cost: $8.59

Two eggs, two strips of hickory-smoked bacon, two sausage links, two French toast triangles, and two buttermilk pancakes makes for a satisfying breakfast for anyone who can't make a decision. I don't know about you, but sometimes I have the hardest time choosing what to eat. This option basically makes the decision for you, and it's conveniently delicious.

8. Simple & Fit 2-Egg Breakfast

Cost: $6.99

This breakfast for the health-concious eater consists of scrambled egg whites, two strips of bacon, whole wheat toast, and a side of seasonal fruit. Low-calorie, low cost.

9. Smokehouse Combo

Cost: $9.49

This hearty, savory breakfast gets you two smoked sausage links, two eggs your way, hash browns, and two buttermilk pancakes. If you didn't know, smoked sausages are different from your average sausage link, and they elevate your breakfast to a new level of yum.

10. Denver Omelette Burger

Cost: $9.99

It may sound weird for the International House of PANCAKES to sell burgers, but this is the ultimate breakfast burger. Consisting of a beef patty topped with white cheddar, sliced ham, and a Denver Omelette filled with peppers and onions, this is one filling meal. Let's not forget the side of hash browns instead of fries to complete the breakfast theme.

#SpoonTip: If you reaaally want an actual burger, IHOP has a few of those too.

11. Fruit Crepe

Cost: $4.99

This dessert menu item consists of a fruit crepe topped with your choice of vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry ice cream, and whipped cream. You also get a choice of strawberry, blueberry, or raspberry topping. Something sweet is needed after a savory breakfast, don't you think? There's always room for dessert, even if it's after breakfast.

IHOP has so many cheap menu items, and even their options over $10 are honestly a bargain for what you get. It's also affordable if you have children because of the "kids eat free" deals from 4pm-10pm daily (check your local IHOP for confirmation of details). Next time you're feening for a delicious and satisfying breakfast for an equally satisfying price, head to your nearest IHOP. I know I will.
