Why Denny’s Diner?

Denny’s Diner – Americas Diner – is a great place to go to eat. You can have breakfast all day long, which means there’s never a bad time to order pancakes! You don’t have to want breakfast to eat at Denny’s and thats why we love it. If you’re craving a nice cooked breakfast with pancakes on the side but your friends want a burger or a chicken skillet then great news… Denny’s offer all of these options and more, check out their menu here.

We can sometimes be fussy with where we eat or what we eat and very often find ourselves asking to have things changed – such as removing an item from the meal. This can sometimes prove to be an issue especially if the restaurant don’t make everything in their kitchen and have some meals prepped before you order. However all Denny’s Diners cook everything fresh and everything is cooked to order, so changing a couple of bits is no problem!

We both would recommend trying a Denny’s (if you can) because we feel sure that you would find something to enjoy. We (between us) would eat anything from the Denny’s menu, and both of us can be fussy!

So we LOVE LOVE LOVED Denny’s in America, this was the first place that we tried it, when we went out early last year. Just after we got back from America we were super happy to discover that the UK had got its first Denny’s Diner. The first Denny’s in the UK was opened in Swansea, Wales (on December 27th 2017). We decided that since we were missing America so much and as Denny’s is Americas Diner, that we would do the trip to Swansea – because why not?

The amazing food we had in the American Denny’s.

Now, we decided to drive down to Swansea (which took about 5 hours) and head straight to Denny’s for food. This was great because the drive worked up an appetite, and since we got there for 10am we wanted a nice big breakfast (a Denny’s delicacy). We then had a small shopping break and returned again to Denny’s for a second meal – since we lived so far away and probably wouldn’t be able to return soon. Needless to say we didn’t eat much of the second meal as we were still so full from the first one! But we ordered waffles and chicken with a side of puppy pancakes. The food was just as great as in America!

Having filled ourselves to the brim – and leaving half the waffles and chicken, and pancake puppies – we set off back home. Yes the same day, yes it’s a long drive and yes we were shattered at the end of it.

All in all we did a 5 hour trip, had 2 Denny’s meals and then did the 5 hour journey home – all in one day. Yes it was worth it, if you haven’t had Denny’s then you need to try it, and then you will understand why we drove so far for some great food!

So since last time we were so shattered from the very early start, long journeys and late end to the day, we thought we would take a different approach this time…

This time Denny’s opened their second UK store in Glasgow, Scotland (on 10th December 2018). Now for us Glasgow is a BIT closer (still a good 4 hour drive), so we thought ‘yes lets go’. However there had to be changes (after how tired we were last time), so we booked a hotel and made a weekend of it. A little weekend in Glasgow, and a great trip to Denny’s, perfect.

After being unable to eat a second meal last time we learnt our lesson, so this time we went to Denny’s for dinner on Saturday evening and then had a long 15 hour break and returned for breakfast on Sunday morning.

  1. I’ve only ever had breakfast at Denny’s (and only on New Jersey) and I LOVE the pancake puppies! My boyfriend and I always get them – and we used to work at IHOP so that’s saying a lot!

    1. TBH I only ever thought about breakfast when I thought of Denny’s but fancied trying something different and it did not disappoint! The chicken was – hands down- the best chicken I’ve eaten!
      You used to work at IHOP? What was that like? I LOVED IHOP when we were in Florida, that was the first place we ate at in the USA.
