Now, it's high time you made it one of your regular breakfast spots.

Denny’s accounts are run by some social-media mastermind. Between pancakes Photoshopped into any imaginable situation, witty jokes about the latest memes and photo scavenger hunts like the one above, the restaurant’s internet activities always get followers talking.
They’re not afraid to jazz up the traditional buttermilk pancake.
Nope, their stacks are much bolder with treats like these salted caramel and banana cream pancakes. They’ve got a shortbread batter, a topping of vanilla cream and bananas, a drizzle of warm salted caramel and an extra sprinkling of shortbread pieces.
They also combined flapjacks and pecan cinnamon rolls with their sticky bun pancakes, filled with glazed pecans and drizzled with an impressively neat design of cinnamon sauce and cream cheese icing.
They’re so good, even Denny’s gets a bit carried away.

They turned pancakes into bite-sized fritters and decided to call them pancake puppies.
Sharing pancakes with friends has never been easier logistically -- though fighting over the last bite of these babies would probably be much more intense. This tempting array of s’mores puppies with marshmallow sauce probably wouldn't survive 60 seconds on the table.
Their breakfast is just as photogenic as that of a hoity-toity establishment.
Their crispy bacon strips, perfectly shaped and yellow sunny-side up eggs and golden brown waffles look just as aesthetically pleasing as the same foods at some trendy Los Angeles eatery.
They use seasons and holidays as an excuse to get extra delicious.
With pumpkin cream pancakes in the fall and Rudolph pancakes around Christmastime, Denny’s always gives breakfast lovers an excuse to go out and celebrate.
Eating a breakfast sandwich is a lot more fun when it’s called “Moons Over My Hammy.”
While ham, scrambled eggs and two cheeses on grilled sourdough is a remarkable feat of its own, the name of this sandwich is enough to make you love ordering it time and time again.
You can top your hash browns with far more than ketchup.
That’s right, Denny’s serves ‘em covered in cheddar cheese -- or everything-style with onions, cheese and country gravy.
Can’t decide what to order? You can try a bit of everything.
Grand Slams are exceptional not only for their vast quantity of food, but for their variety. Can’t decide between French toast and eggs and bacon? Get it all with the French Toast Slam. Want pancakes and hash browns and eggs and sausage and coffee but are too embarrassed to order all of it at once? Thankfully, the Grand Slam Slugger makes it socially acceptable.
You can still Slam on a diet.
While most Denny’s Slams admittedly involve piles of pork and troughs of sugar, the Fit Slam yields a tasty and balanced breakfast of an egg-white omelet with spinach and tomatoes, turkey bacon and an English muffin. Order it, and your pancake-eating friends just might be jealous of your plate, after all.
There’s something for everyone.
Even if your breakfast crew includes an athlete wanting to eat light before a workout, a sugar-loving vegetarian, a ravenous meat eater, a caffeine addict and a hungry person with just $5 in their pocket, everyone will be able to find something to devour.
