“Friendly Staff With Good Breakfast Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Greeted Upon Entering Restaurant - Impressive EVERY TIME Everywhere That Happens. Sitted In Big Roomy Booth Immediately By Waitress/Hostess With Menus. We Took A While To Order Since These Were N-E-W Menus bat Had NEVER Seen Before... Worthy Of Investigating For Any New Entree's, Combinations, Or Items. Our N-I-C-E Waitress "Tiffany" Was VERY Patient With Us Until We Decided To Order About 10 Minutes Later.

My Friend Got Her Typical "SuperBird(r)" Sandwich With Extra Fries (To Share) And To See How They Handled A Side Order. She Asked For Her "Bread To Be Throughly Toasted, And Some Mayo On The Side" . bat Went With " The Lumberjack Grandslam " With two (2) Varations To Test The Results. One, Asked To Subsitute "Extra Meats For Slice Of Grilled Ham" - Two, Add Cheese To Scrambled Eggs.

Our Meals Came Out Served By Yet Another Staffer (" huh? Where's OUR Waitress??? ") Looking Wonderful! Only One (1) Small Cup Of Syrup To Go With Alot Of Pancakes To Eat Was Not Going To Get It. Asked For An Extra Syrup... She Went For "Over Kill" And Brought Me Two (2) Extra About 3 oz. Cups Of Warm House Maple Flavored Syrup - Nice Touch, Though bat Only Used Two.

Nice "Lumberjack Grandslam" That Presented Extremely Well On Two Plates. Found Two (2) Extra Sausages AND Two (2) Extra Slices Of Bacon On Plate In Lieu Of That In-Famous Grilled Ham Slice! Wow! Awesome Subsitution - Thank You! Perfect Pancakes On Their Own Plate. Everything Was Hot & Fresh, But Felt The Hash Browns Were Slightly Underdone By A Minute Or So On The Grill... Lacked Crispy Browning Throughout, And Underdone In Center... Still Quite Good Regardless - Might Just Being Picky Here. Scrambled Eggs Had Good Amount Of Cheddar Cheese, And Were Cooked To Perfect (9 outa 10) solid. Someone With SKILLS Made This Meal! However, "Tiffany" Let My Dr. Pepper "Go WAY Down Pass Ice" BEFORE Offering A SINGLE Re-Fill. One Of bat's Pet-Peeves When I Eat-Out - - -> NEVER Let Me Run Low On Beverage Of Choice (And I Average 3 to 4 Drinks Per Meal)... IT's YOUR JOB, And YOUR TIP Depends Upon It - Period! Want 10 ~ OR 25% TIP... WHAT Sounds Better To Wait Staff Crowd ?!?!

My Friend Had A Different Experience With Her "SuperBird (r)" Sandwich. The Tomato Slice Spent Alot Time On The Grill, And Was Between Carmalized And Burnt. Consisted Of Mostly "CORE" - That's The HARD Part - Of The Tomato (Please See Photo) This Was Severly Disappointing To Her, As She Is A Regular Patron Of West Main Street Salem, Va. Denny's Location, And REALLY KNOWS Their Food Offerings/ Menu Throughly. Our Waitress When Called Over, Q-U-I-C-K-L-Y Replaced The Tomato Slice With Another... And FINALLY Brought The "Mayo On The Side" She Had ASKED For - OK, Nice Save Folks! Whew! Be Glad She Is A Nice Lady! Extra Steak-Type Fries On The Side Were Hot, Well Fried, Great Color, And Plentiful.

With Minor Problems, That Were Easily Corrected, This Denny's Did A Good Job On A Wednesday Night. If Your Hungry Along Rt. 460 - Orange Avenue Between 11pm and Midnite - bat Would Recommend :) :) :)

“Consistent Quality and Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Worth a visit when travelling as you know what you will get. The food at this chain is always good and their milk shakes are better than most.
