The International House of Pancakes is no more. On June 11th, the restaurant formerly known as IHOP revealed the meaning of its new name, IHOb. Though one would think the ‘b’ in the new name means ‘breakfast,’ it actually stands for…’burgers.’ The restaurant will still serve pancakes, however, the rebrand emphasizes the brand new Angus Steakburgers that have been added to the menu.
Of course, the restaurant’s new name has gotten people all over social media fired up and has resulted in some HILARIOUS reactions from Twitter users.

Even chain restaurants, like Wendy’s and Burger King, chimed in to throw some major shade at IHOb.
Not really afraid of the burgers from a place that decided pancakes were too hard.— Wendy's🍟 (@Wendys) June 11, 2018

Inspired by the International House of Burgers announcement, we are also changing our name (Please do not ask what it means — we don’t know either.) pic.twitter.com/0HPQtQirHn— A&W Restaurants (@awrestaurants) June 11, 2018
As much as we love our pancakes, we'd never change our name to Whatapancake— Whataburger® (@Whataburger) June 11, 2018
