Just Nasty. No thank you IHOP

I took my grandmother and I to brakefast this morning at IHOP #4411. After being seated and handed our menues I noticed they were very dirty and needed to be wiped down. I didn't think much of it. We ordered our food and about 5 minutes afterward a man, who appeared to be a manager, sprayed the adjacent booths with a black and blue spraycan. It smelled like insect killer. Right after, we were served our food. My grandmother kindly asked what was sprayed on the seats and our server said she would find out for us. She did not come back for sometime after. Meanwhile, my grandmother asked for the syrup. I reached for the syrup but then stopped because the syrup bottles had a film of dust and hair on the tops. Our server did come back to ask if we were finished. I had an omlete and fruit and just ate the fruit. I let her take my plate. If this filth is what a customer sees at the table then what is the food like? That booth that was sprayed with a chemical and our question was avoided when we asked what it was. A couple was seated in that booth after spraying it with bug spray? So what was I sitting in? I called twice and asked to speak with a manager and was hung up on twice when I said manager.
Don't worry about my family and I being a customer. My grandmother ate some of her food but I did not. We will be going to a better restaurant for brakefast. Clean up your restaurant if you want to keep customers coming to you. $21.60 for questionable food, dirt, and toxic smells is not a thing to pride yourself on IHOP!
