You always get a ton of food and at a reasonable price. The waitstaff are always friendly and efficient at this one. I have been to Denny's where this was not the case. Probably because Denny's doesn't attract big tippers.

Basic diner, but with good food. Quesadilla burger is very good. Nice menu options and good prices. The wait staff have always been friendly and very fast service regardless of the time of day. It's a go to place.
