The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001.
Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.
Acapulco Mexican Restaurant's menu obliterates appetites by slinging tortillas, scooping beans, and carefully balancing burritos on the precarious edge of hunger. Nachos layered with a wide selection of toppings ($4.25–$8.25) tower over dinners, such as the Carne Guisada platter, with spanish rice, refried beans, and guacamole salad accompanying lean-beef tips in homemade gravy ($9.50). Chicken chimichangas sleep on a bed of refried beans and spanish rice, rising in the morning to take a shower in sour cream, cheese, and ranchero sauce ($7.95), while vegetarian platters of guacamole salad, chili con queso, and a bean chalupa work toward meat-free satiation ($6.50). Knowing that depression can strike lonely edibles, the caring chefs at Acapulco flank each meal with two flour tortillas. Alternately, diners may DIY a combination with à la carte items such as beef or chicken tacos ($2.50 each) and deep-fried chili rellenos ($4.95 each).
River's Edge serves up nuanced northern Italian cuisine amid panoramic views of the Guadalupe River. Using fresh ingredients, the professionally trained chefs at River's Edge engineer an elegant and traditional Tuscan menu with starters such as flash-fried calamari fritti ($9) and gnocchi alla romano, doughy pasta pumpkins nestled in a patch of rustic marinara strewn with basil pesto ($9). Stomachs can sashay through tantalizing Tuscan-style entrees such as the pan-seared, brown-sugar-coated salmone scottato with sautéed veggies ($24) or the inventive striscia bistecca, a kingly 14 ounces of new york strip steak denouncing the Magna Carta before a court of boursin mashed potatoes and prosciutto-ensconced asparagus ($29).
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches your ability, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
Max and Zelda’s Oasis Café's menu comforts grumbling bellies with made-from-scratch breakfasts, hearty German entrees, and down-home delicacies. In the morning, fluffy pancake clouds ($4.29 for two) fill with sweet syrup-rain as coffee ($1.89) brews in the distance. Egg lovers can choose from omelets ($8.59), frittatas ($8.59), and breakfast platters lined with home fries or buttered grits, red-eyed gravy, and a choice of toast or a biscuit ($9.59). Come lunchtime, hot BLTs ($6.59) parade across plates, pausing for dips in chili pools ($4.29/cup, $6.59/bowl). Three types of schnitzel ($14.99) explore the German culinary tradition as the eggplant parmesan ($11.59) sails tasting tourists to Italy on a sea of pasta, marinara sauce, and old-world wishes.
