Too much time on your hands-waiting for a table

Too much time waiting for a table. No Deal we did change our mind and we did go to another restaurant

I had better memories of a Denny's diner before going to this one. Food was average. Service was average. Nothing to add really. I don't say don't go, I don't say go...

We were looking for a restaurant close by our hotel and we discovered Denny's Classic Diner. My husband ordered a prime rib salad and I ordered a chicken salad with cranberries and candied pecans. Both salads were outstanding and fresh. Nice employees all around

My wife and I ate here for breakfast. She wasn't feeling well, but Trish, our waitress, was Very helpful and caring. She brought her some chicken soup to help her feel better! We really appreciated this. This is a great place for breakfast when in Ruidoso!!

I already think Denny's is great. I only give a bad review to a Denny's that really is bad, and overall, it that's not usually the case. This one was typical... but that's fine by me! Go Value Slam! :)

We were seated immediately. Ordered one cup of coffee which took over 20 mins to receive. At that point we did still order breakfast (because my husband is a very forgiving man). 45 mins later breakfast came and it was wrong. We left and didn't go back.
