"Thank u IHOP"

Adam Sandler has reunited with the IHOP employee who went viral for turning him down.

Footage went viral on TikTok after waitress Dayanna Rodas, who works in the famous pancake house chain in the US, posted a short clip saying she had asked Sandler to wait 30 minutes before being seated, without realising it was him.

“Not realising it’s Adam Sandler and telling him it’s a 30 min wait and him ofc leaving because he’s not going to wait 30 mins for IHOP,” Rodas wrote, captioning the video: “Pleaseee come back.”
