Stopped here without checking Yelp, which is rare, but I'm on a long drive. Place was quiet, probably due to the bad reputation. The manager was walking the floor and the kitchen, determined to make sure everyone had a good experience. You know what? It worked. The people here seem determined to turn this place around and this was actually my best Denny's experience ever. Give it a shot if you're in the area.
Yes, it is a Dennys. Yes, it is in Pontoon Beach, Illinois, but there should be some standards. While the waitressess were polite enough, the food leaves much to be desired. I ordered an omelete. After having a few bites, I cut it up into four equal sections and brought it home to use as anti-vibration pads under my washing machine.
This is place is disgusting! ! I have never been in such a dirty nasty place to eat we met people there and I couldn't even eat! The walls were coated in grease! Filthy!
