I don't usually go to Denny's but stopped here for breakfast and was surprised with how nice it was. The eggs were served to order and were even served hot (on this trip I was beginning to think that wasn't even possible). I would eat here again, the prices are reasonable & you even get 15% off the bill with... More

Had a good breakfast and the service was good. Waitress was very freindly. Would eat there again if I was in the area.

I have never seen a Denny's in a retro chrome diner before. So, despite the fact that my last experience with this chain resulted in one of the worst reviews I have have ever posted, we were charmed enough to give it a try. California Club sandwich with onion rings. Chicken Caesar salad. Both good and priced just under $10.... More

Ate here for breakfast after staying overnight in Cortez. Was surprised with the food quality for a Dennys. Not usually a Dennys fan but this one is very good. Service was also pretty good

Typical Dennys restaurant but it is located in an old looking diner looking car. Our waitress was very nice also. We were there a little later so we did have your typical late night crowd which I could have done without. Thank goodness we were almost finished with our meal. The food was good though and speedy service.

Yes, Dennys is a chain but we loved the style of this diner. The service was ok , but the food is good. Nice place and relaxed atmosphere.

I am rating this for a Denny's not a five star restaurant. That being said, the staff was very friendly, the service was quick, and my Cobb Salad was very tasty.

We used this location for dinner after spending time in Mesa Verde. We ordered to go from our hotel and were told about 20 minutes. We spent twenty minutes going to a store to grab traveling supplies and then showed up to grab our food to take back to the hotel. We were told they were just starting it. We... More

I'll start out by saying I hoped this evening was an isolated incident but our waitress confirmed it happens often. We arrived about 9:30 pm after a full day at Mesa Verde. It took a long time to order, manager finally took our order, then apparently got it wrong. The coffee was not even close to fresh. We got one... More
