This is your typical Denny's but the staff was great and it's in a good location if you are planning on visiting the zoo. I would recommend getting some breakfast here before going to the zoo because the zoo restaurants are really expensive. Just something to keep in mind.

With Denny's hugely varied menu to pick from, there are always selections sure to please your palate and mood. For seniors there's their 55+ menu, plus the AARP 15% discount to help those on fixed incomes and working on a tight budget. In addition to that be sure to check out their $2, $4, $6, $8 menu for true bargains... More

They were very welcoming and the food is delicious. Always attentive of your accommodation. I requested to sit in a specific table and with no hassle they would let me switch if wanting too. Only waited 5 mins for my food and it was delicious.

While on a week's vacation in San Diego to visit the zoo, I chose this Denny's for daily breakfast and dinner. The 55+ menu, while not extensive, is certainly adequate, and the meals were very satisfying, especially for someone like me watching their weight. Great friendly service. Would go back again without hesitation.

As you would expect from Denny's a great all round cheap breakfast. Area was goo and only 10 minutes from Hotel Circle and onthe way to the Zoo for us. Good service and good food. A nice all rounder and parking was good too.

We dined at Denny's with about 16 other jazz campers. Obviously we could not all sit together. The beauty of Denny's menu is that half of the group ordered breakfast style food for dinner. My cranberry apple chicken salad was tasty.

we ate there a number of times and every meal was good. Close to the Hotel Lafayette and reasonably prices and very friendly accommodating staff. Never a bad meal or experience

We just love Denny's and this was no exception. Love the layout in here with the counter and lots of booths. So much choice for breakfast ! Right next to our hotel which was very convenient. You always know where you are with Denny's !

Overpriced chain restaurant--go to a local joint! We paid almost 60 dollars for four people for breakfast. Eggs were cooked almost DRY and service was meh.... Take the time to explore other local options--go to NorthPark--plenty of restaurants CHEAP!
