Denny's Restaurant Review - Portland, Maine
Gabrian and I left the house late on Saturday like usual and didn't have time to grab anything for breakfast. After his dance class we were starving. I was really in the mood for some eggs when we passed by Denny's on the way to the bank.
I always associate Denny's with late night eating when nothing else is open but don't think about them for breakfast. Which is pretty silly since they specialize in breakfast. Their parking lot was pretty full so it seemed like we had a good chance of a good meal.
The dining room was pretty full but we were able to get one of the last tables available. The staff was very welcoming and our server was great. Super friendly and attentive.
Gabrian liked the kids menu. It had a fun way to pick his breakfast.
Gabrian went with the Jr. Grand Slam breakfast. I think it is brilliant of a restaurant to let the kids fill out an order sheet. Both my boys love to fill out their orders this way.
We had a fun time filling out the story on the menu. We came up with a pretty funny story while we were waiting for our food. It didn't take long before our food was coming out.
Gabrian went with the Silver Dollar Pancakes (which were very generous in size), a scrambled egg, and 2 sausage links. All of this delicious food only cost $3.29. He ate every single bite on that plate. Nothing fancy but an awesome diner breakfast.
I went with the Biscuits and Gravy, Eggs, and Hash Browns. This only cost $4.00 and a definite bargain. I realize I am no southern girl but that gravy was delicious. My eggs were perfect along with the hash browns. I couldn't have asked for a better breakfast.
I love how Denny's has come out with a $2, $4, $6, and $8 menu. It gives you so many affordable options. Gabrian and I were able to eat breakfast for less than $8 and even with our tip we weren't much more than $10. Not bad for a sit down breakfast.
We will definitely be visiting Denny's again in the near future for another delicious breakfast.
If you would like to try them out for yourself, they are located at 1220 Brighton Ave., Portland, ME.
