You may be tempted to quizzically ask me "Denny's?" But my recent breakfast here tells me why people eat at Denny's, and this location (Sanford, FL) in particular. The service was warm, friendly, and fast. The food came out quickly and was hot and decent. And the price really can't be beat. Though I'm not a big fan of chains, especially large chains, they certainly have their place and they generally bring consistency and value, when the individual restaurant is run properly. I think this one qualifies.

We arrived and were quickly seated and given menus and a beverage order taken. In quick order, after a few questions and suggestions from our waitress, we ordered. I elected to have the Senior Omelette. I could not have been more satisfied with what I got. Two eggs had been made into and omlette stuffed with onions, tomatoes, bacon, cheddar cheese and diced tomatoes. It was delicious. Not overcooked, it tasted fresh and light, in large part due to the tomatoes. It was served, as requested, with grits (they needed a bit of salt, definitely) and and English muffin.  It was very good and I was very pleased. I guess I'm a bit of a Denny's fan once again!

My friend Tommy ordered a "what you want" type of breakfast--he told the waitress what he wanted and she was able to tell him the best menu selection at the best price to get just what his little heart desired--and he got it! Two perfectly fried eggs, over-easy as requested, some sausage links, pancakes, and toast--it was all very good. The eggs came out just as he requested, perfectly cooked. The pancakes were nice and light. It was a delicious meal, no doubt, and we'd eat here again in a heartbeat. I guess if you want a value meal and don't need a lot of frills, this is a great place. And our service throughout was attentive and quick--a lot of more expensive places could take a hint from the great service they provided, fast, friendly and efficient. Give it a try!
