International House of Pancakes 9708 Mission Gorge Rd, Santee, CA92071 This IHOP received The Union Tribune's 2008 "Best of" reader's poll. It not only serves the traditional breakfast fare…More that made it famous but lunch and dinner as well. The food is hearty and the prices are reasonable. It's quick and efficient service and customers don't leave hungry. The restaurant is located on Mission Gorge Road in the Best Buy lot, right next to the Burger King. This particular location allows seating for almost 170 people, but the layout inside still allows some privacy for dining. This location is open 24 hours for both takeout and dine-in.
