Short time for short stacks at iconic Raleigh IHOP

— An iconic eatery on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh is set to close this weekend.

The IHOP that still boasts an International House of Pancakes sign and the chain’s signature blue-roofed A-frame building will stop serving customers at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

Twenty-four hours later, a new IHOP will open about a mile-and-a-half west on Hillsborough Street, in the first floor of the Stanhope building, which provides housing for North Carolina State University students.

The old IHOP has been serving customers for 48 years and is one of the last A-frame restaurants in the country – the chain stopped building them in 1979. Officials say the new location is larger and has updated equipment.
