Today (Tuesday, February 25th) is National Pancake Day. The best-known restaurant that is giving away free pancakes is the International House of Pancakes aka IHOP. IHOP will be serving up free stacks of its delicious buttermilk pancakes for most of the day. From 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., you can get one free shortstack of pancakes at participating IHOPs, according to USA TODAY.

No purchase is necessary; however, it's a good idea to call ahead to make sure your nearby IHOP is participating. Otherwise, you might be disappointed. Remember: There's a limit of one free stack per person. Click here for a map and list of locations (including the address) of IHOPs in New England. Enjoy your free stack of pancakes!
