I don't really expect much from Denny's because the food is consistent and most likely frozen until it's warmed on their griddle. I do expect reasonable service, a clean eating area and utensils, as well as at least somewhat friendly service. At this particular location I found absolutely none of these things.
I'm appalled and disgusted at the mess of the dining room and terrible staff. This is a newer building so walls and restrooms are decent but I visited on a Wednesday at 10:30p.m. and the carpet was covered in food. There were more dirty tables with plates of food still on it than there were people (about 10ppl 3 tables).
We were seated promptly but the guy that took our drink order thought it was to much that I ask to have my water without lemon. He demonstrated his maturity by asking me over and over "with lemon?". Eventually I lost amusement with that game and sternly suggested he bring me nothing at all. He replied by saying he was hard of hearing then laughed and walked away. 15 minutes later he brings a dirty glass of water without lemon. I didn't drink it nor send it back.
My friend had placed his meal order of the Sampler. It took some time to actually get the food because our waiter, Luis was visiting with his wife and child who were waiting and watching him "work" while they ate and drank.
The food was hot and fried, as expected but the chicken was so dry and shriveled up that it was not at all edible. A huge disappointment for Denny's. I will not be back to this location and I wouldn't recommend anyone stop. Try Denny's in Fresno on Jensen/99 instead.
