Is Denny’s older than IHOP?

Ever wondered which beloved breakfast spot has been around longer – Denny’s or IHOP? Well, the answer may surprise you. While both restaurants are staples in the American dining scene, Denny’s predates IHOP by roughly 5 years. Denny’s was founded in 1953, while the first IHOP didn’t open until 1958.

Denny’s started as Danny’s Donuts in Lakewood, California. The chain quickly grew and diversified its menu to include breakfast items and burgers. It wasn’t until 1961 that the name was changed to Denny’s and the rest is diner history. With over 1,700 locations worldwide and a menu that caters to all tastes, Denny’s is a familiar sight in the American dining landscape.

Did Denny’s get remove the $4 menu?

While the company has not made any official statement about this, some customers reported not finding the $4 menus in more than a few locations. Unfortunately, these rumors turned out to be to true at the $4 menu was removed from the menu in 2020. Here are some of the items that were previously available:

  • Breakfast:
    • Everyday Value Slam: Buttermilk pancakes, eggs, and bacon or sausage links.
    • Biscuit, Gravy & Egg: An open-faced biscuit covered in sausage gravy and served with an egg.
    • Mozz & Tots: Four Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and six Bacon Cheddar Tots served with tomato sauce.
  • Lunch:
    • Turkey Club: Turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise on toasted bread.
    • Grilled Chicken Sandwich: Grilled chicken, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise on a bun.
    • Cheeseburger: 100% beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickles on a bun.

While this menu has been discontinued, there are still plenty of ways to save money at Denny’s.

What is Denny’s Grand Slam?

Denny’s Grand Slam is an iconic breakfast dish that has been satisfying hungry customers since 1977. Named after the popular tennis term for winning all four major tournaments, this dish consists of two fluffy pancakes, two sunny-side-up eggs, two strips of bacon, and two sausages. It’s a hearty combination that’s perfect for jump-starting your day with an Original Grand Slam for only $9.51.

So next time you’re in the mood for breakfast, head on over to Denny’s and order up a stack of these delicious little pancakes.

Which Denny’s will accept EBT payments?

While many customers come to Denny’s to enjoy a hot cup of coffee and a stack of pancakes, others rely on the restaurant for a more practical reason: to use their Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. Fortunately, many Denny’s locations across the country do accept EBT, providing a convenient option for those in need. Denny’s accepts EBT (Electronic Benefits Transfer) in the following states:

  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin

In order to use EBT at Denny’s, you must be a resident of one of these states and be eligible for the Restaurant Meals Program (RMP). The RMP is a state-run program that allows SNAP recipients to use their benefits to purchase prepared meals at participating restaurants.

To find out if Denny’s in your area accepts EBT, you can contact your local Denny’s or the customer service line at 1-800-DENNY’S (336-6977). Keep in mind that you can only use EBT to pay for your meal up to the amount of your EBT balance. You cannot use EBT to pay for a meal that exceeds the balance so make sure to confirm you have enough funds in the account before you dine.

Why is Denny’s so expensive?

Endless Breakfast offer at Denny’s.

Denny’s, the American diner chain, has increased its menu prices by about 7% over the past year due to higher costs for food and labor, as well as increased prices for gas, food, and other goods. The company’s profit margins have been affected by these rising costs. Despite the price increase, Denny’s is focusing on providing value to its customers, especially as the economy faces a downturn.

The company has introduced a pair of $6.99 meal deals this summer, including an endless breakfast deal—unlimited pancakes, eggs, and hash browns—and the return of the Super Slam, a member of Denny’s signature Slam family. The Super Slam features two buttermilk pancakes, two sausage links, two bacon strips, two eggs, and two hashbrowns for $6.99 or $8.99, depending on the market.

This is a shift in strategy from a quarter ago, when Denny’s had eased up on value due to staffing issues. However, staffing has improved over the past three months, and Denny’s is now focusing on value again. The company believes that these value offers will help drive traffic and offset the lower check sizes.

Despite the price hikes, Denny’s has not been able to fully offset inflation. The company’s commodity costs rose 18% in the second quarter, and labor costs were up 8%. This contributed to a significant drop in operating margins at company-owned Denny’s, which were 8.8% in the period, down from 20.5% a year ago. Denny’s may implement price increases “as needed” in the future. We’ll let you know if this happens.

Does Denny’s deliver?

Picture this: It’s late at night and you’re craving a hearty meal but the thought of having to leave the comfort of your own home is daunting. Fear not, because Denny’s may just be the answer to your late-night cravings. The popular chain restaurant is known for its extensive menu filled with classic American dishes and breakfast options that are available 24/7.

But the question remains: does Denny’s deliver? Well, the good news is that in many locations across the United States, Denny’s has partnered with delivery services such as DoorDash, Postmates, and Uber Eats to bring their delicious food straight to your doorstep. So, the next time a craving strikes, check to see if Denny’s delivery is available in your area and enjoy a delicious meal without even leaving your house.

Does Denny’s use eggs in their pancakes?


Does Denny’s use eggs in their pancakes? The answer is yes, but it’s the explanation is not as simple as it sounds.

While Denny’s does include eggs in their pancake batter, they also offer an eggless pancake option made with their signature recipe, which still manages to deliver on that same delicious flavor and texture. So whether you’re an egg lover or not, you can still indulge in a stack of Denny’s pancakes to start your day off right.

Does Denny’s have a mascot?

Many popular fast-food chains have recognizable mascots, from Ronald McDonald to Burger King. Curious if Denny’s has a mascot? Well, the answer may surprise you. While the restaurant chain has gone without an official mascot for years, they did launch a limited-time sausage mascot in 2014.

The character, named “Sausage,” appeared in commercials and social media ads to promote Denny’s new line of breakfast sausages. The fun and playful campaign drew attention from fans and critics alike, sparking conversation about the need for more original mascots in the fast food industry. So even though Denny’s may not have a permanent mascot, they certainly know how to create a buzz with one.
