Kids Eat Free at IHOP Restaurants is back. Known for serving freshly made breakfast at any time of day, every day, IHOP invites families to savor the last weeks of summer by spending time together at dinner, all while stretching back-to-school dollars since kids 12 and under eat free with the purchase of adult entrées from August 1 to September 25 from 4 to 10 p.m. every day at participating restaurants.

The Kids Eat Free deal includes dishes from the "Made for Fun" kid's menu, featuring favorites like the Silver 5, five of IHOP's silver dollar-sized world-famous Buttermilk Pancakes served with a scrambled egg and hickory-smoked bacon, and Jr. Chicken and Waffles, with two all-white meat chicken strips paired with two Belgian waffle quarters and served with whipped butter and choice of dipping sauce. The latest kid's menu innovation from IHOP is sure to be a crowd pleaser, too: new Cheesy Cheese Pizza starts with an "only-at-IHOP" Criss-Croissant crust and is topped with tangy marinara sauce and melted Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses.

"We know family members are looking to soak up the final days of summer with each other, and what better way to do that than over dinner?" says Kirk Thompson, senior vice president, marketing for IHOP. "IHOP restaurants and our franchisees invite guests to enjoy quality time together as a family while relishing the made-to-order breakfast foods, beverages and more they crave and can only find at IHOP, now at an even better value with our Kids Eat Free offer."

With more than 100 signature menu items to choose from, there's always something delicious for parents, too. Want to indulge a sweet or savory craving? Try Criss-Croissants, the dish first introduced by IHOP last year. This signature IHOP breakfast entree is made from 27 layers of flaky, buttery croissant pastry dough, waffled to a golden brown before being stuffed with three new filling combinations: delectable Salted Caramel and Banana, mouth-watering Strawberries and Sweet Cream Cheese or savory Egg, Spinach & Roasted Red Pepper.

Or, choose from one of IHOP restaurants' new, hand-seasoned, 100 percent USDA Choice beef burgers served on a Brioche bun, like the new Denver Omelette Burger which tops the beef patty with layers of white cheddar cheese, ham and a Denver Omelette made with green peppers and onions.
