We occasionally hit a Denny's when a bunch of local guys get together for breakfast. We have tried 3 different ones in the area. This one is old and needs updated, so it isn't our favorite as we only went there once. Not very clean either. The staff was nice and fast. The food is typical of Denny's. The cook... More

We come here often and the food is always cooked the same. The price is very reasonable and the service is always good even when it's very busy. They have breakfast specials all week long.

Service is very slow, food is fair but do not eat the peanut butter pie, it is horrible. The place needs to be cleaned.

I know the Denny's is not the first (or second) place you think of for burgers, but if you truly want it your way, this is the place. Starting with a hand made beef patty or a grilled chicken breast, you chose from three types of bun, three types of cheese, and nine or ten different toppings. You could eat... More

We have not visited a Denny's in many years. We had breakfast and were surprised at the variety and quality of food. The pancakes were very good and the egg dishes tasty. Great bargain menu also.

We were seated quickly and the place was jumping. Maria our waitress was full of smiles and very good at her job.she stopped to say food would be out shortly and regularly asked if anything she could get us. The food came out and she remembered my husband's milk (that most restaurants forget). My husband's breakfast was great, my chicken... More

The place is rundown (has been for years), the service isn't great, some of the food is good, some not so much. Every now and then we try it since it's nearby and to see if it's improved...it never is!
