Denny's can be mundane, but this was an exception. The food was better than average and the service was outstanding. Maricela outdid herself to accomodate us. She was exceptional in her service and rapport. Very good Denny's experience.

Saw people coming in after us get their food. We ordered two sandwiches and some pancakes. Should not have taken that long. The a/c was great at first but after that long wait I couldn't wait to get out of there!

Denny's is a well run restaurant. This one is no exception. Manager was on top of business and politely directing their employees. Food was hot and good. Waitress was helpful and friendly but did not smile. Wife ordered one thing and I ordered another. Both...More
