Does Denny's do any business at all?
The only 1 I know of by me is in Avenel, NJ. (About 45 minutes away.) I think the last time I was there it was 1980 somthing, and back then the place was DEAD. Whenver I drive by at busy times..i.e. 12 - 2 p.m. or 6 - 8 p.m. There are hardly any cars in the lot. Maybe Denny's is big in other states? Just drove by it this morning and had me wondering!!!
When I'm traveling for work outside of urban areas, I'll often hit up a Denny's for breakfast or for a late dinner if I have to work late and don't want to be stuck in my hotel room with room service.
Usually, they're convenient, efficient with the service (read: fast) and generally passable for sustenance.
Try late at night. The drunker you are, the better those Moons Over My Hammy taste. As they say "All bad nights end at Denny's."
A friend reports she was just in Canada at Niagra Falls and took her family to Denny's for an inexpensive meal. The Grand Slam breakfast was priced over at $15.
So they are probably not too busy in Canada, eh?
I'm thinking its a reliable / consistent / no b.s. place to eat when going on road trips/travelling on the road...and a good meeting spot/bar after hours spot in smaller towns where they don't have many venues.
thank god i'm in LA - pho / tofu soup / carne asada / etc. for after hours grub makes for a much more interesting experience.
