Good food, but not the best around

All American 24 hour dining at this Denny's! Friendly service here, too. I got a strawberry banana smoothie and the Fit Slam, which is a healthier version of the classic Grand Slam.

All of our food was delicious and hot. My husband had a T-bone steak and eggs and it was surprisingly really good. I had an omelet and my kids had kid meals. Very happy with our service. They were quick to seat us and quick to make sure we had what we needed.

We went to Denny's in Sunset Blvd LA and in Anaheim opposite Disneyland. Both had good food and friendly service. For me they make one of the best burgers I had in California. Better than In and out burger.

This is a great diner to visit for great value food and also great food! Although it does get busy but what do you expect paying great prices for great food! Shame they didn't have one in England!
