Isn't Denny's running a $5.99 breakfast grand slam special right now?
That's about the cost of a large fry at McDees nowadays. 🙃

My aunt owned a hardware store in Marathon in the keys back in the day. I remember being in the nearby Denny’s late at night and people openly smoking weed. 1976ish.

Denny’s was the go-to place for firing someone for A LOT of years. If you got an invite from the VP to meet them at Denny’s you knew what was going to go down. Haven’t got the invite for me but was the “witness” a few times. 😳. Needless to say, kinda killed the place for me.

That's the most depressing story I have ever heard. Sorry you lost your livelihood enjoy the cheapest meal I could find? Better get used to it this will be the nicest dinner you will be able to afford ever again. On the bright side I hear they are looking for kitchen help.

Kinda like going to the “train station” if you worked at the Yellowstone Ranch. 😳😝

You’re not wrong. Some brutal days for sure. It started before i got here. Think it was intended to be somewhat of a heads up. Either way, never felt good. At the end of the day i always tell people when they get promoted to not sleep with the help and don’t cheat on your numbers. We don’t do many RIF’s and it’s almost impossible to get fired for performance. The number of people we lose to sleeping with cashiers or faking something is staggering.

One place I worked, the boss would wear a hawaiian shirt when he was gonna fire someone....everyones asshole puckered when he walked in wearing that shirt in the morning....and he usually waited till about 3 in the afternoon.

Kind of like Denny's in both the locations I go to. One is fairly newly built so its still good. The other is owned by an owner who gives a crap. They both are on the ball.

Used to go to Denny's meeting friends for coffe to BS'ing. Food was good in the past. You have to ask the waiters for making the bacon crispy, or you pay the price later in the bathroom. :eek: Most Denny's are not maintained to a high standard and cleanliness IMO.
I prefer Tim Horton now a days, they coming out with new menu, including flat pizzas.

I get donuts at Tims about once per week. The Denny's in Langley is only about four years old and since it is fairly new. It is well run. Wenatchee Denny's has a hands on owner and he does a great job with that location. But for that style food I mostly go to White Spot or their fast food version Triple O's.

Dennys in Atascadero was an Ad Hoc homeless mecca with shopping cart parking in the rear , then it morphed into Huckleberrys , Rhonda and I went in a few weeks back for breakfast .... a homeless woman was in the head for a half hour taking a bath in a sink

Even Dennys closed in Eureka. IHOP opened in their location, but it looks dead every time I go by. Why anyone would try to open a restaurant up here right now is beyond me.

The Denny's in Monroe, WA closed and became an IHOP. The Denny's in that location was always fairly busy. IHOP, not so much.
