One TikTok user was unimpressed after realizing she’d turned down the chance to serve Adam Sandler at an IHOP recently.
Host Dayanna Rodas posted a video, which has since gone viral, featuring security camera footage showing Sandler and one of his daughters trying to get a quick meal at the restaurant.
However, the pair left when they were told it was busy and it would be a 30-minute wait.

“Not realizing its Adam Sandler and telling him its a 30min wait and him ofc leaving bc hes not going to wait 30mins for IHOP,” Rodas captioned the clip, in which she dons a clown filter.
The video now has millions of views and has done the rounds online.
Sandler then joked:
For the record, I only left the IHOP because the nice woman told me the all-you-can-eat deal didn’t apply to the milkshakes.

IHOP have now made Sandler’s wishes come true by declaring May 10 “Milkshake Monday”.
The restaurant chain announced that 19 locations based in Long Island, NY, (which is where Sandler was in the video) would be taking part in the all-you-can-drink milkshakes from noon to 8 p.m. ET.
And that’s not all.
IHOP also said they’d donate $1 from every milkshake sold (up to $50,000) to Comedy Gives Back, the non-profit that helps struggling comedians who have lost all income due to COVID-19 and the subsequent closures of comedy clubs and venues.
“We take our guests’ suggestions very seriously in an effort to continually shake things up and satisfy all palates with our signature commitment to IHOSPITALITY,” said Kieran Donahue, CMO, IHOP. “There is no better way to kick off the week and enjoy our craveable menu than with a house-made milkshake, or as many as you can drink. For more than 62 years, we have welcomed everyone – famous and familiar – to pancake, smile and laugh together under our blue roof.”
