I guess it's been a while since I've been over that way. I stopped by to get a sandwich for dinner and there was a sign up saying their license was suspended. Anyone know if this is recent, or have I just been out of the loop as of late?

  • Yikes. Glad I didn't decide to go earlier in the week. Thanks for the info!

  • Don't get too excited...this is the first inspection they failed since before 2011. The IHOP on Cicero routinely fails and passes inspection and no one has reported getting sick there.

  • Eh, you'd think if that's routine practice for them the health dept would crack down harder since they clearly don't maintain the changes.

  • Shutdown for no hot water. Critical violation
