We started going to Dennys because so many other restaurants in town did not have consistent meals. You got a great one one night and two weeks later the same meal was terrible. Cooks in town are moving place to place and it shows. On the other hand Denny's continues to put out great food and exactly what you ordered.... More

There was not a rush to take our order....... and there were only a couple other people cause it was so early in the morning. We ordered one of the slams that had 2 bacon, 2 sausage, 2 eggs and 2 pancakes... More

Newly renovated and improved! Our hometown 24/7 diner recently upgrade with a fresh look. The staff does a fine job with quickly seating customers and providing beverage options. The menu is current with great pictures, as always. They are more selective with cooks and nicely present the meals. Our coffee cup was never empty. Note to head office - "Thanks... More

Very good with Denny's standards. We needed food late at night and knew we would get a good meal - breakfast.

This was our second night in Cortex and decided to try Denny's. The place was extremely clean and quite busy. Staff were quickly at the table to take our drinks order. (Which is only soft drinks etc). Then after drinks were served we ordered our main meal. Which consisted of T.bone and Sirloin steak plus trimmings. Both steaks were cooked... More

The waitress should be in another job!! The food was not prepared well, it was cold when we got it, and it was thrown on the table and the waitress never came back to see if we needed anything. The first time in my life that I haven't left a trip at a restaurant.

The menu seems pretty consistent in Denny's diners. The staff were friendly enough. The soup was not very warm . I had steak and potatoes, which were okay, but the broccoli was lukewarm. Ok, it is not expensive, but with a little tweaking, it could be a much better experience for the customer.

The Denny's is newly remodeled, clean, and has a great team. We stopped in at this Denny's on our way up to Utah and had breakfast. Traditionalists, we both had the original Grand Slam. Food was excellent, service was friendly and prompt and the restaurant was clean.
