I’ve been to various Denny’s diners all up and down the California coast. Whether I’m in LA or SF, Denny’s is kind of my go to place. It’s convenient, and you generally know exactly what you’re gonna get when you walk into the door. Denny’s is also my default diner simply because California seems to be lacking in the 24-hour dine-in restaurant department, and because anytime is pancake time.
I think it’s a widely accepted fact that Denny’s service is shit. It takes forever to get seated, and it usually takes even longer to wave down a server who will take your order. By the time your food comes you don’t even care how it tastes anymore because you’re so fucking hungry (drunk) that you’re just glad you finally have food in front of you. Having said all of that, I think you’ll understand how astonished I was when I found myself saying these words: “Wow, this Denny’s has good service!”
