Anyone have any opinion on what chain makes the best pancakes. IHOP recently re-opened here after a 15+ year absence. It was OK, I wasn't overly impressed. We have a couple of "Original Pancake House" here, in general pretty good. And Bob's Big Boy here usually turns out some good pancakes. I have to grudgingly admit that the ones from the Golden Arches are probably one of the best things on the McD menu.
Also always wondered if there is a technical difference between pancakes, hotcakes, griddle cakes, flapjacks? (Any words I missed?)
