About That IHOP Name Change... Just Kidding

Many on social media, though, did not buy the name change and believed it was simply a promotion for its burgers, the HuffPost said.

"We just had some burgers to bromote", the company said in a tweet.

IHOb - the International House of Burgers - is no more.

That will come to no surprise to some Internet sleuths, who combed through federal records, finding no proof of the restaurant officially changing its name.

The company announced a name change in June, which sparked a flood of social media attention, mostly making fun of the stunt. The return to its true name comes as the pancake chain celebrates its 60th birthday. "We'd never turn our back on pancakes", the newly re-renamed IHOP wrote in an Instagram caption.

IHOP has since shut down its IHOb Twitter account, writing in the description: 'Hey ya pancakes.

While pancakes are front and center again, that doesn't mean IHOP's burgers are going anywhere.

What really matters is that even though IHOP is back to IHOP, it will continue to serve its mediocre burgers regardless of the letter at the end of its name.

'IHOb is the guy who gets a face tattoo of the girl's name after one date, ' Teigen quipped.
