Denny's is the chosen place for breakfast, this location is always jam pack, arm yourself with patience it's not small but the customers are by the ton, there is another one 10 minutes north of 99 frwy at Atwater but it's almost full too. still they are friendly and try to help you quickly. Kudos for that!

I had a very bad experience a couple of weeks ago at another Dennys, which I gave a bad review. Just a couple of days ago, I went to our local Dennys here in Merced, and like always, great service. I have been to many Dennys, and for most part, we have good experiences. Our Merced Dennys is always great,... More

We were staying nearby and given a coupon for Denny's so went for breakfast, lovely bright and cheery atmosphere at this one and very friendly staff. We both chose from the 55+ menu and were pleasantly surprised by the portion size, truly lovely food and such good value at well under $20

We stopped in for breakfast on a Sunday morning -- apparently timing our visit before the early mass let out, because we were seated without a wait, but the line was out the door by the time we left. Service was prompt and friendly, and food was all tasty. The manager was obviously working hard to keep everything running smoothly.... More

The food was good, the service was excellent. This was later in the evening, and the place was jammed. In spite of being crazy busy, the staff kept smiling and served us well. I highly recommend.

I travel almost every weekend from March through October. While on the road I eat many meals at Denny's Restaurants as they food is consistently good, the service is good, the facilities are clean. I spend about half a dozen weekends in Merced, California and eat Saturday and Sunday breakfasts at the Denny's in Merced. The weekends are always busy... More

Jeremy, thank you for making our dinner out tonight such a wonderful experience. He told us , "You're welcome" and any time he came back to the table he had the utmost respect. We 'olders' don't like to be told, "No problem," when we say thank you. He never did. It was always, "You're welcome". It really made my husband... More

Traveling home from a week-long convention, randomly pulled off frwy exit #168 southbound, looking for something other than fast food. I believe the exit says "13th Street" and you can't really see Denny's sign up in the air from the SB direction on 99. (trim the trees blocking your sign's visibility-- get a billboard or something!) This place looks as... More

But this particular location is located next door to the Budget Inn where I am staying for business. Plus the night clerk told me they will give me 10% off my bill. And it's late. What else is there? I must say this is the best Dennys I have encountered. Good food. Really good. Friendly service. I was pleasantly surprised.

Thank Biztrav57
