But if there's one thing it's known for it's pancakes! I mean it's in the name...

Comedy Central

...or at least it used to be. On June 11, IHOP (International House of Pancakes) changed its name to IHOb (International House of Burgers).

Dear Internet, we abbreciate your batience. Now let’s see who guessed right. B-hold!!!!! #IHOb

Now, when they first announced they were changing their name I assumed the "b" would continue with the breakfast theme, but clearly I was wrong. So, I'm sitting here staring at "burgers" like:

Then I thought maybe this is just a really, really, really, really, late April Fools' Day joke. Nope.

They weren’t playing. #ihop ➡️ #ihob

Well, it didn't take long for Twitter to erupt with reactions to the major change. Here's what people are saying:

ihop, ihob, corn on the cob, Charles Schwab — doesn’t matter. It’s a pancake restaurant.

IHOP: We’re changing it to IHOB Everyone: International House Of Breakfast isn’t bad IHOB: BURGERS!!!!

No IHOP, No! You had one job. One. All ya had to do was serve cinnamon pancakes every Sunday and everything would be ok. I don’t even recognize you anymore. @IHOb you’ve changed. More like International House of Lies. #IHOP #IHOb https://t.co/gUS7AndiOc

This is how I feel about the IHOP/IHOb situation. It’ll never be IHOb. IHOP for life.

Us: IHOB ? Oh International House of Breakfa- IHOP: BURGERS

IHOB Yeah because if there is one thing the US lacks it's places to get a burger!

“Hi, welcome to IHOB, what can I get for you?” Me:

So IHOP changed their name to IHOB which apparently stands for International House of Burgers... that’s the dumbest thing I have ever heard!! Soon it’s gonna be the International House of Bankruptcy!! https://t.co/451x6mD8CH

@IHOb I am literally here right now!! they do look delicious 😋

me waking up to find out that the "b" in @IHOb stands for "burgers"

i really just woke up and the first thing i see is that iHop is dropping the pancakes and changing their name to “international house of BURGERS” #IHOb ITS GUNNA BE A WEIRD FCKIN DAY https://t.co/k3Af5DEHWM

But no matter how you feel about the name change, IHOb's pancakes are here to stay.
