I'm so sorry to rate Denny's. I use to love Denny's when I visited them in other towns but this one is awful. The food was so bad I could not finish it. I became nauseated. And to top it all off, I noticed the prices have been doubled from what they normally charge. I really wouldn't mind paying more... More

This is a terrific Denny's. I love the look of the building. Makes it more inviting. The food was excellent as well as the waiter.

Horrible, horrible, horrible experience...did I say HORRIBLE??? The server Mikey was extremely rude and disrespectful not only to us but every person in restaurant! From cussing to where everyone can hear him, yelling at other staff members acrose the restaurant, to telling us that he couldn't even give us a drink we ordered(coffee and Dr pepper) because he didn't have...

This is a pretty typical Denny's. I know their menu and the meal I ordered was exactly the same as I'd get in any other Denny's. I like the fact that they're consistent. The decor was a little different from what I've seen elsewhere. The place is designed to resemble an old fashioned diner. It looks good. Denny's is always... More

Me and my family were on a round trip through New Mexico and Colorado and stopped at Ruidoso looking for a restaurant to have dinner. After we saw several bad reviews about the service in this Denny´s, we wanted to check it out for ourselves and were impressed by the excelent service. Especially, our waitress Wendy did an excellent job.... More

Everything we ate was good but the waitress was not. My tea tasted old so I asked for a coke. Ten minutes later I went to the waitress station and asked again. We ordered milk for the kids and got chocolate milk instead, which would be fine if they had eaten their food. Both bathrooms were very dirty. Our waitresses... More

After 30 minutes they told us they were running behind. The food was good once it came, but would not go back.

If you're hungry and want good food don't come here. It has taken over an hour to get scrambled eggs and pancakes. The waitress told us there was only one cool. That caused the delay. The restaurant is not full I can see 7 tables occupied. A couple next to us walked out due to the long wait. Our waitress... More
