The very first Denny's opened in Lakewood, California in 1954, and over the past six decades the company has constructed a global empire 1,600 locations strong. Breakfast classics like the Grand Slam and Moons Over My Hammy have stood the test of time, bringing loyal customers back to the always-open coffee shop-diner year after year, but the menu also includes lunch and dinner items from club sandwiches to spaghetti and meatballs. Denny's has managed to stay current after all these years with newfangled creations like the Hobbit movie tie-in menu, which offers Middle Earth-inspired items from Frodo's Pot Roast Skillet to The Ring Burger--indulgent dishes that will have late-night Orange County diners claiming them as their precious. When it comes to finding your local Denny's, Voice Places never closes.
