There are still a couple Denny’s left in the Lexington, KY area. I have been to both and have never had a problem…I love their food and the service has always been great.
I do want to point out, the one’s near the Detroit area are scattered and closing up. Hmmmmm, makes you wonder IHOP and Big Boys have a better chance than Denny’s around here
You are quite right, T.J. We get Sonic commercials here in Portland, Oregon and i do not think there is a Sonic within a thousand miles of here.
I had good service in a 50’s themed Denny’s in NC, or maybe it was in VA along I-81…humph, can’t recall. Doesn’t matter, it’s a chain. Anyway, the restaurant was in my hotel’s parking lot, I barely had a choice in the matter. The grand slam breakfast is really, just too much food.
But, the service was good and the food was decent.
I do like Denny’s patty melts but its still not one of our main stops, in fact I drive past the closest Denny’s on my way to the Waffle House on Jax Bch.
Our local Dennys is pretty good and has decent service. My only problem with them is that their menu is pretty limited later in the evening. I love their grilled chicken salad, but on their later evening/overnight menu it isn’t available. I don’t understand that…it is just salad mixed greens, tomato, shredded cheese and grilled chicken…that would be easy to fix anytime of the day or night. When I eat late at night I don’t want a heavy meal, but most of their overnight offerings are larger meals.
Dennys was a regular hangout when I was in college, we could go there and eat and hang out for awhile and the waitresses never minded.
I vowed off Dennys. There is one a block away from where I work and they are open 24 hrs. Anyways, a few of us working midnight shift would call them to place an order sometimes and if they did decide to answer the phone, they never seemed to have what we ordered. How do you run out of hamburgers and french fries? The best one was when the girl answered and said that they werent cooking then because it was time to take out the trash. So naturally I quit bothering as the food wasnt near good enough for this abuse.
Low and behold. I told my wife these stories and she let me in on a little secret that she worked with a girl who’s husband was the manager. After speaking with the girl, I called back a few days later and got the excuse that they had ran out of bread and was unable to make any kind of sandwiches that we had ordered. I kind of surprised the girl on the other line by telling her that Robert (the manager) and I would be up shortly to see what supplies they might need to get through the rest of the night so that we could run and get them. You could have heard a pen drop. Of course Robert was sleeping as it was in the middle of the night, but he did go in early and have some words with that crew. My workplace never had another problem with them, but I never ordered there again as I was afraid of what some of the ingredients may have been in the food after that.
Except for the buffert Denny’s is similar to Shoney’s. And Sambos, Perkins, Coco’s etc etc etc.
Is Denny’s similar to Shoney’s. I know that Shoney’s has a buffet and I do not believe that Denny’s does. I only ate at one and that was in Rosemont close to the Chicago airport. It was about two in the morning and I had breakfast and it was pretty good. I recall that their menu was similar to Shoney’s

TJ has been doing his homework!
Hey TJ – I’m new to this site – but I will definately check everything out.
I eat at Waffle House at least once per week and have NEVER been to a Denny’s…not sure why but just a fact.
Thats it advertising! Thats why that Tasteless emporium of institional food aka Red something or other advertises here in the North east. For all the snow birds headded south. Chow Jim
We still have Denny’s here, they are good for one thing and one thing only–after bar time. Everyone’s hungry, Denny’s has pancakes & snausages.
Denny’s is the only place I can get GRITS in Maine….
