We were staying in Tempe and ate at Denny's twice. Their server, Tony from Minnesota was extremely cheerful and a very good waiter. He was extremely efficient and brought our grandson some applejuice in a cup for children that he could keep. The food was good and the Manager and the rest of the staff were very friendly.

Traveled to Phoenix area and arrived later in the evening. This Denny's was fairly close to the hotel and a great place to grab a bite to eat. Waitress could have been a bit more attentive to our table with filling our water glasses, but otherwise everything else was good.

Visited this restaurant on a stopover in Phoenix. It was evening time and not too busy. Our waitress, Victoria, was efficient, helpful and friendly. The menu is the usual one for a Denny's diner. The food ordered came quickly and was served exactly as requested. Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive, and coffee was plentiful. I would certainly return... More

Conveniently located near Arizona State University, Tempe. Good place to eat breakfast and dinner with reasonable price. Service is reasonably fast and clean. Overall a good place to have food.

This Denny's is to close to where we stay when we're in the Tempe area. I think it's "average" for a Denny's. It's just plain okay. We were there for breakfast. We were seated fairly fast. Drinks and order also delivered reasonably fast. Server appeared to need a little cleaning up himself but he was pleasant and efficient. The interior... More

Arrived in Phoenix late, and we're glad Denny's is open 24-hour. We had the Senior's meals. Waiter was friendly and helpful. Our meals were satisfying. Location is in a safe neighborhood.

We chose one of the $8.00 value breakfasts. Excellent value & cooked to order except for too long in getting it to our table. We were surprised both orders were cold because it didn't seem very long before it was served. Perhaps the warming lights didn't function. Staff very polite & apologized for the error. Yes, I'd go back.

Pretty slow service. This was a cheap option so we ate here twice while we were in the area for the Pot of Gold music festival. We had lunch and that was actually pretty decent- make your own burger/chicken sandwich was great. They forgot some requested ingredients but brought them after I said something. Breakfast wasn't good. Very long wait... More

The nice thing about Denny's is that you know exactly what you are going to get. The menu is predictable and not exactly gourmet, but it's filling and worth the price. I wish I'd not read how many calories were in their milkshakes before I went there, but I figured my 90s would be spent filling my Depends and drooling,... More
