I would go again.

I've been going here since I was a child. Decent food, good service not to mention staying power. No matter how many restaurants open here it never seems to affect Denny's.

Stopped in for a late supper around 8:30 PM. Took almost ten minutes to get seated. My wife took the kids to the restroom while I waited to order our drinks.

All employees are old or sub par performers here ....this tells me management is looped and complacent (probably preventing the next best thing to walk in and work there)..that's typical for this area.. I actually participate in this waste... More

I've been to this location hundreds of times over the yrs. Very comfortable atmosphere! Food quality is pretty good but the portion sizes are never consistent. I order the same thing every time I come here, Santa Fe Skillet, and the portions are never the same.

When I pointed it out to the waitress, she didn't seem surprised or bother to apologize. Place was just worn, torn, nasty dirty...

The meal was good. The service was good. The price was fair. The fixtures and décor was dated and could you a little face lift.
