ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- People came into IHOP extra hungry today, and ready to chow down. Today was the first ever inaugural Pancake Bowl at the IHOP on Argus Drive in Rockford.
There were five hungry competitors all hoping to win big. The grand prize winner walked away with a $500 IHOP gift card, and a lot of pride. Their job was to eat as many pancakes as they could in 20 minutes. The first place winner was Juan Mendez who downed 19 hot cakes. Mendez currently holds the record for most pancakes in one sitting at the IHOP on Argus Drive. His record is 28 pancakes.
