I only rate restaurants if they really impress me. Don't miss this one! The place was clean and great, the service prompt, the food really good. We were especially impressed with our waiter, Shane. Also, when we went there the next day our waitress was wonderful. This was the best food we had in Ruidoso

We really go to Denny's a lot for breakfast. We were greeted by a very friendly young man, that seated us quickly. Our waitress was friendly and checked on us a couple of times to fill our coffee cups. Food was served in a timely manner and was hot and delicious.

Danny, our server, was ridiculously overworked. When we arrived, at about four in the afternoon, he was trying to cover every function but the kitchen. Nevertheless, he did bring coffee and water and after 15 minutes took our order. The omelettes arrived about 20 minutes later. In the interim. an assistant manager (Alex) arrived and promptly began upbraiding him, apparently over a complaint a party of 5 over their food. This slowed things up even more, and the server endured the public humiliation quietly. The restaurant had 4 other tables w/o food orders or checks. Alex made no effort to collate checks or help out. The food was alright, but the other patrons were either furious or resigned. One guy just walked out. We were unable to get a check, so I went up and asked Alex for one. Danny produced it, but Alex appeared unable to make change or operate the register. Myt wife and another patron stood around for seven minutes, waiting to pay. I offered to pay cash, but Alex apparently thought this was his chance to learn to operate the till. Finally, he took the cash and we were able to leave. We ate at this location two years ago, and apparently they forgot to defrost the food before they served it. This was NOT the fault of the server, but the fault of the franchise owner and asst. manager, who are apparently unable to run a restaurant., Don't eat here unless you want to feel like a part of a failed reality show.

On October 5, 2013 we were in Ruidoso for the biggest car show in the State of New Mexico.
Five of us went into Denny's at 5:00am for breakfast before going to the show to help park cars for the event. No fresh coffee on hand! one of our people tried to explain we needed to be out by 5:45 AM. The waitress said " If you have a problem with my service, talk to the manager!!!
When our meal was ready to be served, she refused to bring it to our table. The cook delivered it!!
