Food, Staff, Quality!!

I used to visit Denny's on Wells Ave. in Beautiful Reno, Nevada, quite some time ago. This morning, I had to drop my wife off at a Doctor's appointment not far from Denny's so I thought I'd stop in again. Well, just as I expected, I was greeted with a warm, friendly smile and seated immediately... read more

We haven't been to a Denny's in some time. The advertised items looked good and were. But their prices have really gone up. Too much for us to bear for a Denny's. This location did give very good service and was close and handy for us. Exactly what we expected except for the higher prices.

Granted, this Denny's shares a parking lot with a paint-peeling America's Worst Inn and is across the street from a long-abandoned gas station and a shuttered and weed-filled Carrow's, but it is literally right off the freeway.You can pop off on and off the Wells exit with ease. Food is typical Denny's, though I will say they have stepped up... More

We were very impressed with the Denny's we ate at in California's Simi Valley a year or two ago and so opted to search out another Denny's while in Reno. That was a mistake. We had to stand in line for over ten minutes even though we could see several empty tables. The red headed woman taking our name and... More

Great food and service. Ate there twice. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. Parking is a bit tight.

First bill was for $40+, 2nd for $30+ when our actual food bill was only $12+. Watch what the waiter(waitress) gives yu for your bill.

Denny's is a chain that is affordable and offers a great variety of choice at breakfast. I don't eat eggs and breakfast isn't much fun but Denny's was willing to prepare a dish that included what I wanted but didn't have eggs. An eggless skillet meal! Delicious! The wait staff also was excellent. An exceptional Dennys.

We ate there on a Friday and it was crazy busy. People were friendly but NOT very organized. Heard the manager YELL at the Hispanic cook several times for getting orders wrong. I have this idea, how about if you DO NOT hire "non English speaking Illegal's" if you want your stuff done right .
