We arrived at 11:30am. The restaurant was not very busy and we were immediately seated. Our waitress, Jessica arrived at our table immediately to take our beverage requests. Denny's has good mango smoothies for $2.99, bigger and better than McD's. We both ordered Sante Fe Skillets which include large chunks of chorizo sausage and is served with toast or tortillas....

- [ ] When I first walked into the building, two employees saw me enter the building and did not acknowledge me. They proceded to look at what seemed to be a seating chart. I was standing directly in front of the hostess podium for about 3 minutes and still did not get so much as a "hello". I walked... More

They were extremely busy on this Saturday morning, but were working really hard to provide good service and good food. Our waitress was a bit scattered, but the hostesses, manager and kitchen people jumped in to help.

It was a pretty slow evening at this Denny's when I visited. I had driven 730 miles that day and just wanted to sit down at a non crowded place and enjoy a quite meal. The staff was very friendly and attentive. When my chicken fried steak and eggs arrived, the waitress told me to cut into my steak and... More

I really wanted Denny's for some reason. This was the closest one. Did not quite no what turn to make to get there. It is off any main street. The employees were ok. Waited a bit for a basic meal. There were not many customers there. All around a decent experience.

My son swears by Denny's, so we have eaten at "Lenny's" "Denny's!" all across the West, many times. This was the poorest example I have seen. Slow service in a ⅔ empty place, lukewarm food, and dirty restrooms.

Visited for lunch and had the chicken salad sandwich with fries. The sandwich was very good served on multi grain bread with tomato and crisp lettuce. The wedge fries were crips and had a good flavor. Our server was friendly and it didn't take long to get service or for our food to come out. Good food and good value... More

Service was slow, floor was dirty I never saw anyone use a sweeper between customers, and the parking lot should be relined so cars do not back in to another.
