Went for breakfast with my partner. We both ordered the same thing which was build your gran slam: eggs, hashbrown, toast & bacon. The waitress asked if we liked our bacon crunchy and we told her no. Bacon was not crunchy however the hasbrowns were extremely crunchy...Yuck! I told our waitress she apologized and wanted to bring us to another... More

We came to Denny's for breakfast. Both of us decided on the 55+ entrees. One was the breakfast starter and the other was the grilled cheese & soup. Both came quickly. We were a little early for the soup, so we ended up with grilled veggies. The server, Tany, was friendly and efficient.

This is far beyond the Best "Denny's" that I ever been to and actually still go to. Their "Staff" always makes us feel welcome and truly take care of us to the best of service, and always take that extra step to make sure we are happy and go home with a smile. We feel like family with them and... More

Right next door to Motel 6, cheap as chips and portions to make you loosen your belt... Good service, good diner

I don't understand how this place is rated number 4. It is what it is. We only came here, because it was close to where we were staying. The staff was very nice, but the food was really slow. The honey jalapeño bacon sucks. I like honey, jalapeño, and bacon, so putting together sounded like a good idea. But nope.

I expect very little out of Denny's and this couldn't even meet those low expectations. Bathrooms was filthy. Pancake place still had blueberry stains on it. The bacon and hash browns were horrible. Service was extremely slow. Just overall bad

During our recent 5 week trip we tried 4 Denny's restaurants and found 3 of them totally unacceptable! This one (the 1st), however, provided good service, a clean environment, and good food. As it's most unlikely that I'll ever eat at another Denny's I'd was ready to return to this one on our outbound leg.

A great place for friendly service and filling food on a budget. This is. It fine dining, but it doesn't pretend to be either. It's a family diner offering good sized portions of tasty diner type grub. I enjoyed my two visits here.

While our daughter was recently at ACEN in Rosemont, hubby and I came here for an early dinner. Their menu includes a pretty good pot roast sandwich and tons of other options to satisfy almost everyone's appetite. AAA-members get 10% off the bill! Come here for decent tasting food and to save $.

We came here for breakfast and it was amazing! Ate soo much, there was a lot of choice and a good selection of desserts. French Toast was on point! The only issue we had was that we waited for 30mins for our food to arrive. But the friendly staff compensated
