Denny’s – New Year’s Eve

Chopped Steak, Hash Browns & Green Beans

Chopped Steak, Hash Browns & Green Beans (not GF)

We’re at Denny’s for dinner.  We found ourselves with no water in our apartment during the day today and they weren’t sure when it would be restored, so we checked into a motel.  Dad and I routinely have breakfast at Denny’s, but we never eat any other meal there.  They have a fairly large menu, although I am only familiar with the build-your-own Grand Slam as being gluten-free.  I’ve tried eating the same items at another Denny’s in Detroit, but met with unfortunate consequences.  Something wasn’t gluten-free, even though I thoroughly questioned the manager about ingredient listing and foods prepared on separate grills in the kitchen.

Fortunately, I never have any trouble with the Denny’s in our hometown.  It’s a different crowd here in the evening than it is when Dad & I come here for breakfast.  We’re here early enough in the evening to not catch the after-bar crowd, and that’s a good thing.  Our server’s name was Katie and she did a great job of taking care of us and several others in her area.

Rick ordered the Mushroom Swiss Chopped Steak with green beans and hash browns. It came with garlic toast on this occasion, although on a later visit, it came with dinner rolls.  He also ordered a Coke to drink.  It was a very good meal!  The portion was more than ample.

I ordered the Grand Slam (Build Your Own) with 2 sausage, 2 bacon, 2 eggs over easy, hash browns and a Coke.

Whenever I order my meal at Denny’s, I always ask the server to make sure that it’s served hot.  There has been a tendency in the past to receive your plate and it’s only warm.  On this particular visit, it arrived piping hot.

No room for dessert, although I honestly don’t know what dessert would be gluten-free.  Since I primarily visit Denny’s for breakfast, there’s no need to worry about the dessert choices.
