Isn't waiting an eon for your food part of the Denny's experience? I'd consider it a plus if I didn't hear a slur of some type.

Christmas tree.  Every damn time.

So, not getting your food at Denny's is a bad thing?  Who knew.

I'm not sure I've ever been to Denny's and had food arrive quickly, which is part of the reason I don't eat there very much.

Last time I was at a Denny's we went in and waited and waited. There were no staff. The waitress and the cook had both walked off shift, didn't bother to call anyone, and didn't lock up. There was a note taped on the front counter. It was probably like that until the morning shift came in. I commend their collusion.

CraicBaby: This kind of thing would never happen at Waffle House.


The Awful Waffle fire would burn for days. The pre-saturated greasy walls and lard insulation pretty much assure it will have a minimum 72 hour flame. National fire codes stipulate that Waffle Houses are stand alone structures for this very reason. That's a fact, look it up if you don't believe me.

So, if it cost 150,000 as they said in TFA, why did they not mention which items were damaged. My house is not even worth that much money. Sounds like cop math to me.
 
2012-12-19 03:13:39 PM  
Acutual it's not A B and C question.  It's more a step 1, 2 then three.
 
 
Talk to the manager and ask for a free meal, when that fails burn the tree down.
 
It's important that it happens in that order.

Doesn't it really piss you off when all you want to do is give them your money so you can leave and they completely ignore you? I am much more patient about waiting for food than I am waiting around for the check.

I really have no sympathy for anybody who makes the painfully obvious mistake of entering a Denny's in the first place.

I know it's cool for Farkers to hate-on pretty much all chain restaurants, but even if I generally wouldn't make something like Applebee's my first choice, I'll eat there if that's where I wind up.

Denny's? No. That place is horrid. It's the Wal-Mart of restaurants. The only food I've ever had that was worse came out of a truck stop all you can eat breakfast bar.

On a trip to visit a college my senior year, I stopped at a Denny's with my dad to eat. After 20 minutes of nobody coming to the table, my dad got pissed, found the manager and asked him where we could go to get something to eat. We ended up at Perkins so that was a win in my book.

Ever since I moved in with my girlfriend, I can't do things like go to Denny's at 2 AM just because I feel like it, or run to ANY restaurant, really, on a whim. It'll spoil my appetite for the dinner SHE friggin' cooked, and hurt her feelings.

About 20 years ago, the family wound up at Denny's for breakfast. You always wind up there and don't got here intentionally. Dumbass waitress takes over an hour to get our order to us and then it comes in bits and pieces all of which were cold and all of which were wrong. After sending my order back twice because it was wrong - got pancakes asked for eggs over easy - Got omelet the second time.

At that point I was pretty pissed and when our dumbass waitress asks if I want her to go back for round three of over easy eggs I replied

"No. I'll just have juice."

My wife and daughters were all embarrassed at the time but to this very day the phrase "No. I'll just have juice." is still used with enthusiasm and joy.

Apparently it's all about you. Again. I make you a perfectly good dinner and you don't...Did you do the dishes yet? Did you call that guy about the thing? Did you go to the place about the stuff? Don't you know it hurts my feelings when you don't want to see the movie I want to see?

While there's no cure, the treatment is to make a plan with a friend to go have steak/beers/burgers/ whatever - it has to be weeks in advance though. Because you don't want to have a schedule conflict when clearly that's the weekend you are taking her to see Aunt Judy's antique doll collection. There will also be scented candles involved.

After a Grateful Dead show , a Denny's was the closest place open,there musta been 200 people there.The one server was helping the cook and the other one was so overwhelmed, I jumped behind the counter making drinks,desserts and coffee.In the back of the my mind I was wondering if I would get in trouble,but when the cook said "Hippie Chick,take this over to that table",I knew it was cool. About 3 hours later, when everyone was taken care of,we set back and they counted their tips,oh about $300 for the each of them,I declined the money they offered to share,but crashed on the couch at one of their houses.I have a hard time explaining to people exactly why I followed the band,this is a prime example.

WTF? You know the tree was near the front entrance for everyones viewing pleasure when entering.
Does not one employee, including a manager, know how to use a fire extingiuser?
What did they do? Grab some cokes and go sit in the parking lot an watch the place burn?
I can see the busboy/dishwasher doing that. But the manager?


Smoke damage. Ever burned some popcorn? Imagine that X100 for even a relatively short lived fire.

It is Dennys though, it probably would have made it smell better.

I'm old enough to remember EATING at Sambo's.
And now, I think I'll take a nap.


I was a little bastard of a kid, when I was real young we were outside of a Sambo's and I started running around a utility pole and yelled to my mom and dad "look, I'm making butter!"

/they were mortified

After a Grateful Dead show , a Denny's was the closest place open,there musta been 200 people there.The one server was helping the cook and the other one was so overwhelmed, I jumped behind the counter making drinks,desserts and coffee.In the back of the my mind I was wondering if I would get in trouble,but when the cook said "Hippie Chick,take this over to that table",I knew it was cool. About 3 hours later, when everyone was taken care of,we set back and they counted their tips,oh about $300 for the each of them,I declined the money they offered to share,but crashed on the couch at one of their houses.I have a hard time explaining to people exactly why I followed the band,this is a prime example.

The article states that the fire did $150,000.00 damage, but if you watch the accompanying news story the reporter says that the fire was put out quickly and no one was hurt. So what was damaged that cost $150,000.00?

The collective pride of everyone who's ever eaten at Denny's.

No calls for background checks for lighter purchases or quantity limits on matches?

In this case, if a Denny's burned down, it would be cause for a national holiday and a day of rejoicing.

I would be thanking them from keeping me from eating that god awful crap they call food.

Stop posting stories like that. I have a hard enough time trying to hate hippies as it is.

I was sitting at a Denny's (I hesitate to call it a "Restaurant") in Las Vegas, for the first time in 15 years, just two hours ago. We seated ourselves, got our own menus, grabbed our own flatware, and waited 15 minutes till the waitress noticed that she had customers. I ordered a burger, and it and the fries were cold and nasty. The waitress regaled us with tales of watching a man and his drunk friend kick his pregnant wife almost to death in one of the back booths, and watching a shooting in the parking lot. A true fine dining experience. I give it 5 stars.

Yup, we used to eat there all the time. It had big murals of the Sambo story on the walls.

I guess they had to paint them over. Too bad. It didn't turn into a Denny's though. Some local guy bought it.

Was it the one in Yreka? The one that became Wah Lee's?

Denny's hasn't really been bad for me but once in Houston I had to wait so long for my drinks that the table next to me was seated, got drinks, food, ate, paid, and left before I got my drink. I left the waitress an $.18 tip so that it was clear I was dissatisfied. No tip at all could be construed as forgetting and a larger tip would indicate that her behavior was acceptable.
