Breakfast at Denny’s
Everytime we’re in Vegas we need some time to adjust because of the time difference with where we live. So the first couple of days we’re out of bed pretty early. During one of these early mornings we decided to walk down the Strip and look for a place for breakfast. We ended up at Denny’s between MGM Grand and Planet Hollywood. It was 7.30 a.m. when we walked into the restaurant and only a couple of tables were occupied.
We were seated at a table close to the kitchen and got our menus. The first thing we noticed was a couple of tables filled with empty plates, glasses and used napkins. In other words: dirty dishes. We asked our server to give us some time to have a look at the menu so we could decide what to eat. Two minutes later she returned to take our order but we hadn’t decided yet. This routine repeated two more times within 5 minutes, our server seemed to be in some kind of hurry. We ordered our breakfast and fresh orange juice. We ordered scrambled eggs, hash browns, pancakes, bacon and toast. Several servers were walking around for about 15 minutes, appearing to be busy, until eventually our breakfast was served. During that 15 minute wait nobody felt the urge to clean the tables stacked with dirty dishes. Not a pretty sight considering the fact the restaurant was nearly empty.
The food was warm, not hot and the flavour was just ok. Nothing special, not close to impressive. We didn’t expect an exquisite breakfast experience but this was below average. We ate our breakfast and weren’t impressed by the food or the service. Just before we finished our breakfast our server returned to offer us a refill. We took some time to finish our orange juice and asked for the bill. We paid $27 for breakfast for two, tip included.
There’s plenty of places where you can spend less than $27 dollars on breakfast and get better food and service. This doesn’t mean we’re cheap. We don’t mind spending a lot more on breakfast as long as the quality of the food and service justifies the price you pay. The food at several foodcourts down Las Vegas Boulevard is better than at Denny’s. So to conclude this review: we won’t be going back to this Denny’s restaurant.
One thought on “Denny’s”
The first few times I came to Vegas I went to Denny’s regularly (the one next to Casino Royale though, I reckon you guys went to the one near Hard Rock Cafe). I loved the Cranberry Pecan Salad there. But after a few very bad experiences I decided not to spend my money at Denny’s anymore (I had my last meal there in 2010). First bad experience: a half raw hamburger. Second bad experience: my friend had a really bad steak (when she complained /re-ordered they still didn’t cook it right). So I totally agree with you guys: avoid Denny’s. There are so many options in Vegas, vote with your money!
