    No thanks. IMHO, Denny's has terrible food.

    "You couldn't beat it. I mean it was a beautiful, beautiful breakfast. It was fit for a queen or a king," diner Annah Shoffner told CNN affiliate WNCN-TV in Raleigh, North Carolina.


    That's just sad.

    what all is in a grand slam?

    Nope, and I won't either. The Houston Denny's chain, except for a couple of stores, is owned by a bunch of Iranian crooks who purchase goods and services from vendors then don't pay their bills. The company I work for had to get an attorney to threaten them with a lawsuit before they paid. In the process, we found out that they screwed just about every other contractor who also did work for them. Before we got the lawyer, we complained to the national office, which told us they did not have any control over their franchisees. Unfortunately, a lot of the contractors screwed over by Denny's are small and can't afford lawyers, so Denny's gets away with it most of the time.

    The Houston chain used to be owned by Hakeem Olajuwon, the former Houston Rocket, but then he sold it to these Iranian crooks out of San Antonio. When it all hit the fan, and we lawyered up on them, they called my boss, who is also Iranian, and had the nerve to tell him that he was an immoral man because "Iranians don't sue Iranians". My boss told them to go to hell, which will definitely freeze over before I step through the doors of another Denny's. He also told them that they had a choice - Either make arrangements with the lawyer and pay up, or suck on a very large judgment. They ended up paying, not only what they owed, but the money our lawyer charged, as well.

    I walked in there and the lady at the register said "sorry we've never heard of that offer." WTF?

    Unfortunately the closest Denny's other than that one was like in the next city.

    DAMN!

    Excuse me, but I have a complaint. Your line, "WHY WASN'T I INFORMED?!!!", is MY LINE. I have exclusive copyright to this sentence on DP. Here is evidence of such:

    There are a few others, but due to forum rules, I cannot link to them. Now, quite obviously, I have substantiated my copyright to this phrase on DP. In lieu of a royalty check...wait, changed my mind. Send me a royalty check.

    But I edited it. See the "WTF?" in front of it? That's what makes it different. It's like the "ting" that makes the beat of Ice Ice Baby different from Under Pressure

    My husband went since on his break since he was working close by one and he said they couldn't even get in because the line was out the door and to the corner. And it was about -10 degrees yesterday morning. People love a free breakfast I guess.

    I'm pretty sure they nearest Dennys to me would require taking regional rail.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
