Good basic food with a discount for AARP members. The food is made to order. Servers know the menu and will help with special requests/needs. Very popular in the local area, especially on the weekends.

We missed the exit for Applebees and end up in this Danny's. The waitress is very friendly. I had the tilapia fish and chicken soup. Both are okay. My wife thought the chicken was bit too dry. It's a rest stop and served the purpose.

What can you say? If you have ever had breakfast a Dennys it seems to always hit the spot. The Chilli burgers are the best. I have enjoyed everything I have ever ordered there and the service is always prompt and polite.
