The concept of "the backup" is a pretty familiar one in sports, electrical generators and dating, but you don't usually see it applied to restaurants. But the International House of Pancakes is my idea of the perfect backup restaurant: It's not a first choice for dining, but it's a suitable replacement when I'm too lazy to make pancakes and eggs for myself at home or a massive kitchen accident has rendered my stove useless.
IHOP is usually an option rather than a priority -- unless I'm stumbling in for a 2 a.m. booty call plate of pancakes.
