This Denny’s Restaurant is conveniently situated on 19 St NE just 50 meters from Highway 1 and 500 meters from Deerfoot Trail (Highway 2).
We were welcomed by a friendly server who showed us to our table. She was so friendly that we got chatting and found out that she would be going camping after her shift.
From my visits to other Denny’s locations I had scored some coupons for a free meal for two and a free drink. Even knowing that we were there to get a free meal, our server remained very friendly, attentive, and efficient.
The food was very well prepared and tasted as good as it looked. My steak was done the way I like it, and it came with fresh-baked dinner rolls and butter on the side. Denny’s dinner rolls are some of the best I’ve ever had. They were fluffy and flavorful and made even better by butter.
What was not so good? That’s easy: The men’s washrooms were awful. They smelled of urine, and one of the stalls had feces on the floor.
Last thoughts: Yes, the washroom put me off, but I think it was an isolated occurrence. It would not stop me from going back to this Denny’s on 19 St NE in Calgary. Thanks to the great food and service, they can expect me back any time.
My meal coupon was good for $25 and the bill came to a couple of dollars more, but the restaurant did not charge me the difference. Now that was an exemplary gesture.
