When you think “good mozzarella sticks” it’s natural for your mind to not immediately think of IHOP Mozzarella Sticks. By the end of this review, I hope to change your mind on IHOP’s Mozzarella Sticks as they are if not the best chain restaurant to get mozzarella sticks, they are just so close to touching that ceiling.


In my experience, Mozzarella Sticks at IHOP are always served in a pristine, glistening, white bowl where the golden deep fried cheese sticks and dark mozzarella sauce contrast elegantly.

IHOP’s Mozzarella Sticks shine with their golden brown breading with just a hint of some additional seasoning. The cheese perfectly cracks through on a few of the cheese sticks and makes your mouth water.


Exceptionally stringy cheese and well seasoned breading combine to make the Mozzarella Sticks at IHOP have a delicious taste. While their marinara sauce is simple, it’s a wonderful pairing.

You will also notice that these Mozzarella Sticks are served very warm causing the cheese to elegantly drip as it stretches. Don’t let that fool you however – leave them waiting on the table, unconsumed, for more than five minutes and you’ll have sad, cold, not so stretchy Mozzarella Sticks.

The Consensus

If you’re looking for the best nationally recognized diner and chain restaraunt to eat Mozzarella Sticks at, look no farther. IHOP is it.

Sure, there are a few cons not making IHOP’s Mozzarella Sticks the supreme cheese stick, but the pros heavily outweigh them.
