Not your classic diner

With a retro silver facade, you knew right away it wasn't a run of the mill boxy type restaurant. Black and white floors linoleum squares and a red, black and white decor. Their milkshakes are delicious and they serve breakfast all day! What could be better?

We stopped pretty much knowing what to expect at Denny's. You can usually plan on pretty good comfort food for a great price in a decent atmosphere. This one was no exception. Food was delicious, quick, and inexpensive. We would recommend!

I took the family to Denny's for lunch. Everyone enjoyed it very much. My Grandson's had pizza, and fruit. My Son-in-Law had breakfast. I had tilapia fish two sides, and soup, for $8.99. The fish was very good size. My Daughter had hamburger, and fries, and the Grandson's finished the fries. Everyone got a lot of food that was very... More

Cute retro style diner complete with old style ceiling. Food is normal Denny's fare. The pies are not made on site and the crusts were tough but the rest of the food was passable. The chicken quesadilla was good.

I've eaten at a lot of Denny's restaurants in my life. This one tops the list. From start to finish, it was evident these people really take pride in what they do. Food was very good. Service was excellent. Value is excellent.

You can't go wrong with a Denny's. Large selection of menu items, I had a great burger and the desserts are always tempting. Fast and friendly service. I was 1400 miles away from home and sat at a table next to 4 people from my home town, how homey can it get?

The Denny's at Cortez has been converted to a retro diner and is a good place for a hearty breakfast or lunch. I had the typical 4 item breakfast combo with pancakes, eggs, hash browns and link sausage, which was a good value at $6.49. The coffee was hot, the service was good and the location was very close to... More

its been a long time since I stopped at a Denny's, I was staying across the street from Denny's and rather than ride somewhere to get dinner, I decided to walk across the street, it was good food, some friendly locals who talked to the stranger, I will probably go back for breakfast rather than eating the motel breakfast
