Breakfast food is lyf and since I love breakfast (A LOT!!!), I cannot not eat here. I intentionally waited for the "hype" to die down before trying this place out to avoid the crowd and just so I know what to order and not to order. But apparently, though they are not that "popular" anymore, the place was still full when we went here for dinner one Sunday evening.

PLACE. The place was full during our visit so it felt too crowded and noisy. Also, there was something off about the place.. it wasn't as clean unlike other bistro group restaurants. Not as orderly too.

FOOD: Heard and read so many not so good reviews so I went here w no expectations. At all. Which was a good thing because there was nothing really really really extraordinary about Denny’s. I think I like IHOP more (except for their pancakes).

We tried the following:

* Denny’s Share Four All (pancake puppies, chicken quesadillas, chicken fingers, and fries)
* The Original Grand Slam (Pancakes + Bacon + Sausage + Eggs)
* Cheeseburger
* Side Salad

And the dishes I liked? The side salad and the pancakes. Their pancakes are better than IHOP’s. 128517 But the burger, chicken tenders, chicken quesadillas, and pancake puppies were all just okay. Burger and quesadillas was dry. Chicken tenders was good but nothing special or extraordinary. The bacon was crispy and yummy (because how can you go wrong with bacon? 🥓). The scrambled egg was good, it was cooked just right - fluffy and creamy. However, the sunny side up egg was..... murdered. 128528128549128557

SERVICE. Not really good. Staffs were all so hard to call and they’re not that nice and accommodating. 128530

Overwhelming Menu in Denny’s. My heart pounds as soon as I see their yummy and big serving delicious dishes.

Their BGC branch is quite big. Its relatively new with bright interiors, perfect ambiance to start your day.

We chose dishes under their SLAM menu:

128522 All American Slam (P395) served with toast breads, hash brown, scrambled eggs with cheddar, 2 sausages & 2 strips of crispy bacon
128522Waffle Slam (P395) golden waffle served with 2 sunny side up eggs, 2 sausages & 2 strips of bacon

128522 brewed coffee- single serving (P75) , bottomless (P95)

Verdict: its one happy meal for me. Its fillling and good quality. Bottomless coffee is ♥️

Food was tasty. Love their waffles! But the servings are a far cry from the ones in the states. Lots of flies in the place. Service was really bad!!! Had to call the waitress thrice for our water and hubby's order was never punched so we were almost done (had followed it up thrice but all we kept on getting as a reply was to wait for another five minutes) but his never arrived and no one even bothered to explain that they forgot to punch the order. Really??? Btw the manager/supervisor was the one who took our orders. Finally it irked us already so we called her attention the 4th time and it was the only time she told us that our order wasn't punched at all!!! Was expecting more from a manager/supervisor. They obviously need more training. Definitely not coming back! Nevermind the waffles. 🙄🙄🙄

Finally tried America's favorite diner at UPTown Parade in BGC. Open 24/7! They have also in Trinoma and Vista Mall in Laguna.

Went here with hubby last February, it's a Saturdate with hubby at Denny's!

Here are my recos that you need to try here
✅ nachos
✅ Bourbon ribs
✅ mangos graham milkshake
✅ Denny's skillet wrap

Food at Denny's are so delicious and most of all huge servings! It's really good for sharing so we feel bloated after trying to finish all of them.

Service was 128076 nice ambience and very spacious 128076

I have to say their pancakes were really good, they were fluffy and smells freshly made. Four stars! 11088110881108811088

However, the presentation doesn't even give justice to southern hospitality and stands deviant from how it was shown in their menu. Such a shame. So I'm giving it a 11088️ for lack of eye for detail.

Bacon was too stiff even though i requested for something juicy and curled 1108811088

But since they didn't charge my coffee upgrade despite of me telling them about it, 4 stars! 11088110881108811088

Denny's is one if the establishments that recently set up shop at Uptown Parade. I haven't heard of Denny's before not until i listened to Michael Shermer's audiobook "The Moral Arc" (which is one of the greatest books 128218I've read in a while)

Shermer mentioned The Grand Slam Breakfast and CMA said in passing that he wanted to try it. So here we are, browsing the menu Denny's.

Consider this breakfast for dinner. I wasn't planning to order anything for myself but i saw the beverage section of the menu and i had a sudden rush of nostalgia - Root beer Float it is. Who among you remembers A&W and their infamous floats??? 🕰

Lumberjack Slam. Whoa! This is a big plate full of treats:

127859Two sunny side-up eggs. The eggs are cooked perfectly. The yolk is runny and the egg white is cooked just right.

🥓Bacon. I have nothing but love for bacon.

127839Hash browns. I love potatoes. I l like how Denny's hash doesn't resemble the prepackaged kind.

127838Toast. Skipped this but CMA said it is good. This got me wondering. What did they do with the toast?

128055Grilled Ham. Oink! Oink! (Loosely translated as "ham is love")

🥖Sausages. I like the mixture of salty x smokey notes of the sausage.

🥞Buttermilk Pancakes. Uhmmm. The pancakes Heaven and Eggs (circa 2004) is still number one for me.

Refreshments

127819Lemonade
9749️Coffee
127848Root Beer Float

The float is fantastic. I guess they use A&W root beer and some high grade vanilla ice cream. I loved every sip as i felt a sudden rush of dopamine.

Service was excellent. This is expected when you dine at restaurants under the Bistro Group. Food is great and the big servings makes it worth your hard earned working class dough.

Breakfast for dinner is not a bad idea especially when in Denny's

This is actually the 2nd time we visited Denny's. Got their Chocolate Lava Cake and Chocolate Overload Peanut Butter pancake Plate. Their Lava Cake was just alright and I liked the ice cream that came with it. Their pancake serving's huge and couldn't finish it by myself, haha. Their bacon strips were tiny though. Ambiance was alright and service was quite fast. They also have free wifi and their own bathroom as well. 128513

We dined on Maundy Thursday so the place was packed. Group of 15. Three of our orders didn't arrive- I guess they were that busy.

Peanut butter chocolate pancakes with sausages and hash browns - 3/5 - for me the pancakes were dry.
Add on French toast - 4/5
Lava cake - 2/5 - more cake than molten chocolate

Service was good- minus the fact that they forgot to give the three things we ordered. Good thing the servings were huge. We were full so we didn't mind much.

Not too happy with my first visit here for breakfast during their opening week, long queue, long wait, typical breakfast food.. but we are out of options for dessert past 12am. You gotta appreciate that 24hour service! And during these hours on a weeknight, the place is quite "desserted" (pun intended) 128513

Chocolate Lava Cake - Cold Ice Cream on top, Hot Chocolate Center, and the Moist Chocolate Cake nailed it. Perfect for sharing amongst four people.

Strawberry Milk Shake - while the staff admitted that it was just strawberry ice cream diluted to a milkshake, I still enjoyed it. 128513 at least it wasn't the sour type strawberry milkshake.

Masarap, medyo maalat pero oks na128077🏻. These were the only pics that I've taken (medyo gutom na128514). Price=medyo mamahalin. Spent P1600 for Chicken and Sausage Quesadilla, Fish & Chips, and All-American Slam, plus Apple Ginger and Orange Juice for the drinks. Serving size=dinaan sa laki ng platter 128557, and the hash brown was really flat. Verdict=110881108811088

America's diner arrived here latter half of 2016 with the Bistro group's introduction of Denny's. I'm a sucker for the diner concept, which brings comfort food, all day breakfast, and greasy big portions to Filipinos. Perfect for the line up of the Bistro Group (TGIF, Italianni's, Moe's, Texas Roadhouse, Crazy Garlik, Village Tavern, Watami, etc.).

Worth a Try: Yes. Reco to try for first timers and curious folks, foodies and families alike.
Worth a Return: so-so 128528
Tips: Try the Slam dishes. Their dishes are good for sharing so it allows customers to order less plates. Plus it allows curious foodies to try more than one dish.
Verdict: Denny's has decent American diner food, a wide selection of choices, BUT the service of their dine-in staff needs to improve to be at par with Bistro group standards and be commensurate with the resto's price; in fact its service so far is inferior to IHOP and Pancake House, similar diner and breakfast establishments. Worth another look but not anytime soon with all the establishments in BGC and all day brunch places available in the metro. Free Wi-Fi inside plus parking is decent at Uptown Parade P35 for the first few hours.

(I'm trying a new format so readers can appreciate the summary at the start of my review. Let me know what you think.)

Denny's operates 24/7, which is consistent with many of these classic American diners operating in the States; further, it may be a convenient option for the party goers of next door Palace Pool Club, Valkyrie and The Brewery, looking to remove their buzz.

We opted to go here for breakfast (this is one of my real time reviews) on a Saturday morning, 3 months after their hyped opening last October, so things may have quieted down a bit. It's still about half full when we got here. And the turnover is good.

We ordered their Grand Slamwich, one of their myriad of Slam choices, which are skewed towards breakfast. The waitress claims which they claim to be among their best known menu items. Aside from the Slams, they also serve diner items like burgers & sandwiches, soups and skillets, appetizers and salads, & classics like fried chicken and fish dishes, and breakfast fare. So one wouldn't be lacking of choices here. And like I said, servings are a plenty.

The Grand Slamwich is a big chunk of sandwich filled with crumbled sausage, bacon, shaved ham and American cheese. The potato bread is quite good, but deadly, as it's spread with Maple spice syrup & perhaps butter while toasted. Crunchy good outside, with a slight sweetness. Nice. Served with Fries usually, but we converted to hash brown instead. P395 which my wife and I split. It's a good choice, enough to split between my wife and myself. Rating, 3.5/5

Also added an order of Pancake Puppies which looked so good on the menu. 6 Pancake puppies between the size of a Munchkin and Bomboloni. Sprinkled with Cinnamon sugar. Promising first bite as I loved the crunch of the outside, and I liked that the inside was a bit gooey; going for my 2nd, it was dry while still dense so it was not as enjoyable; the rest were like that so it was inconsistent. But I then tried putting maple syrup on it (they have one on the table), it was better. When we asked the staff which is the real version of the puppies, she pointed at the drier version. If that's the case, then it's okay, maybe worth the experience since it's fairly unique a side order, but best to limit to one per person. 6 was too much for a pair. P195 is a bit pricey too. Good presentation in a parfait glass. Rating, 3/5

Added a side order of sausage. They serve 2 kinds, a shueblig and a frankfurter. The shueblig is better, frankfurter is okay. Both sausages at P125. Decent. Rating, 3.5/5

Service of the kitchen was very good. We received the food fast enough (less than 12 minutes). But the service of the dine in staff needs improvement. Cases to point out:

> They asked us if we have the BFF card (aka Bistro foodie card) which we gave at the start. When we got our bill, the discount and free coffee weren't applied.
> It tough to call staff and like I said, it was not overly full for it to be chaotic.
> We encountered 3 different personnel so consistency was not present. We even told the supervisor that our coffee should be free to which he said that it will be automatic when the card is used, but it never was.

So the service, though not terrible, was inconsistent and unimpressive. Very un-Bistro like. Just came from Texas Barbecue last night and they were more full and we got that usual superb level of service (on a plus note, my wife left her Kidzania tickets there and their manager Niña kept it safely for us to get it back).

Ambience was nice for an all day diner, clean, brightly lit, makes use of wood accents well. Still new but I see minor imperfections in maintenance. It was annoying to see glossy retouches to the ur matte black accent upper wall towards the kitchen. The OC in me.

Ordered The Original Grand Slam and Chicken Bacon Classic. I liked the taste of pancakes but it could have been more moist. Bacon 🥓 was crispy while the sausages were tasty too! The chicken bacon classic was disappointing though. Chicken could have been marinated more so it will be juicy and tasty. It was just too bland and dry. 128556 Jollibee/potato corner/Mcdo fries are better too. Haha!
Delivery of our orders arrived around 25-30 minutes after. It was so slow to think there were few customers inside. Oh well 128556128522

We ordered The Original Grand Slam and Chicken Bacon Classic at around 7:45AM. The place was not crowded at all but it took our meals to arrive after 30 minutes. We were not advised that their waiting time for all of their dishes (even if you're the only customer there) is 20-25 minutes. The dishes were way smaller and very different from the menu's pictures. Chicken Bacon Classic is NOT extraordinary, the pancake was just so-so. Place has mosquitoes. They have free and decent WiFi though. Restroom was fine. No free parking. Prices/Dishes are somewhat cheaper/better than IHOP. Not going back to this place.

Pretty pricey (around 500 pesos per head), but the servings are huge and the staff is really attentive and friendly. Food tastes great, and I'd choose this over IHOP!
