Service is on point, but Denny's, Denny's, Denny's...
As most of T&T may already know Denny's, the ever popular 24hr American breakfast diner, has opened its doors on our shores. Needless to say The Bill Check had to pay them a visit. The restaurant itself is clean, spacious and easy on the eyes. On entering we were greeted by warm friendly staff. To some this may seem trivial, but the staff must be commended; service in Denny's is impeccable.
Then things take a different turn. Our food was tabled exactly 15 minutes after we ordered... cold. Yes friends, cold food. I ordered the Cali Club Sandwich, which includes seasoned fries. Taste wise, everything was fine...but cold. I can compare my meal to my three year old's left over breakfast that sits for 30 minutes before she hands it over to me and says "Daddy, I don't want anymore, can you eat it?"
The toasted 7 grain bread which housed this club sandwich had the equivalent texture of a seasoned leather wallet; fresh? I think not.
Well done Denny's, you just entered the preschool hall of fame for stale food. My colleague initially ordered a Breakfast Skillet but alas, no potatoes. Our waitress kindly offered to substitute for mash potatoes...no thank you. At this point, rather than go through the entire menu to be met with "Sorry Sir, that's not available right now." we asked the Waitress to let us know what was. Cinnamon Pancake Breakfast it is. Unfortunately hash browns were not available as advertised on the menu so they were instead replaced with breakfast sausages. The pancakes I must say looked quite appetizing. Disappointment once more. Denny's... I'm beginning to see a trend here. Trying to cut the pancakes with just a fork proved to be about as effective as keeping your feet dry in a storm wearing sandals. That is to say the pancakes seemed to have the consistency of a swimming cap. On to the toast! Wait...that's stale too. Well the fountain Coke was quite refreshing and the coffee was quite good. Did I mention their service is impeccable?
Denny's Trinidad, a word of advice from the general public of Trinidad and Tobago: Clean up your act. Please advertise products you actually HAVE available on your menu. And in closing, try not to serve pre prepared meals to patrons, my children provide me with that service for free.
