We have eaten breakfast here twice this week and the service was fast and friendly. The new buttermilk pancakes are delicious and the value is good for the price.

Went to Denny's for a traditional Grand Slam and hadn't been in almost a year. The food was delicious, service was fast and we were seated quickly. The Grand Slam is the breakfast that you can choose two bacon, sausage, eggs, muffin, fruit and other items. The gluten free biscuits are reportedly delicious.

Food pretty consistent in Denny's, this is no exception. Found the staff attentive, friendly and facilities clean. A good local family restaurant.

Great location near Whiting Ranch with an outdoor seating area. Seems full most weekends. Service is always very good and restaurant is super clean.

While the menu is the same as in all Denny's, the treat is the friendly service. This is truly a happy place to come to eat, and it doesn't take long to feel like one of the family.

We had breakfast there over the last weekend TWICE and found it wonderful. The staff was very attentive and the food was hot. So often at other Denny's, the food is cold. Dina was our waitress on Saturday and, even though she was busy with other clients, she did a great job. Thank you for making this a pleasant experience.
