“It's Denny's after all - but great service”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We called in for lunch before our flight. We knew the place and the thought of captive food at the airport wasn't appealing.

I understand comments about the service when it gets busy - it feels understaffed at times in the evenings, but we have never had any issue ourselves.

This early afternoon visit was noticeable by the electricity around and the hypercharged service. This might have had something to do with the inspection taking place by senior management, but we found the service very efficient but more importantly friendly.

We really enjoyed our grand slam mega carbo load ups before our flight, as well as the endless coffee. Thoughts of the ice cream sundae fortunately receded as the pancakes caught up with me. We're not talking haute cuisine here, but honest comfort food. As a treat once in a while, it was very enjoyable. Our server Alva (?) was very lively and engaging.

“Staff goes above and beyond”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Disclaimer: We were a fairly "captive" audience as we stayed at the Travelodge and had no car. We ate 3 meals at this 24 hr Denny's - a late night/ early AM dinner after flying into LAX, breakfast the next day, and an early dinner before our next flight.

The food is typical Denny's - no surprises. But what was really impressive was the outstanding service. Every server that we had was so incredibly friendly, and went above and beyond to make us happy. The coffee was the best I have ever had at a Denny's, and the salads were really fresh.

Great job to the staff and management at this Denny's!

“Could do a lot better”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Great to have breakfast at 1 am but the standards have slipped. the eggs were over cooked, the hashbrowns under cooked and the sausages burnt, the pancakes soggy ! I think they could do better !

“Adequate”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The service was very uneven. We ate breakfast here 3 times, and two of the waitresses were great, the third one acted as if we were putting her to too much trouble.
Food is Denny's average.
The place is clean though, and it was close to our hotel.
