We had a meal at the Thousand Palms Denny's and everything was as expected. Good food, (especially the breakfast menu at dinner time) at a good price. Service was a bit slow but it was all good.

We take 6 days to drive down from Ontario Canada and another 6 days driving back and stop @ Denny's across many states during that time. My husband is a big eater so usually... More

Dennys was close to the hotel where we are staying. The food (turkey dinner) was excellent and the service was outstanding. Plus with an AARP card the net cost is very good for seniors.

I've been on Denny's for late dinner and ordered a steak with veggies. The food was fresh and the price was fair. The service was fast and waiter was efficient and kind. I would Highly recommend this place. Bad side was that they have no fresh juices or mineral water.

Everything you expect from a Denny restaurants. Plenty of parking though smaller lounge than I used too. Spacious and light and plenty of space between tables. Good selection of meals for all ages especially families. Good value.

Thank Kevin D
