Night-owl residents of south Denver are celebrating the return of one of the few 24/7 options in the area. At 9 a.m. today, the Denny's at 275 West Hampden Avenue in Englewood is holding a grand reopening celebration after a major remodeling job, and to kick off the festivities, the restaurant will offer the first 100 diners through the doors a free original Grand Slam (two buttermilk pancakes, two eggs, two bacon strips and two sausage links). And that's not all...
The first 25 diners who show up at noon for lunch will get a free Classic Burger & Fries, and the first 25 dinner guests who arrive at 6 p.m. will get a free entree. And hundreds of additional prizes will be given away during the day-long celebration.
"Today's grand re-opening is not only an exciting day for the residents of Englewood, but for all of us at Denny's as well," says Ali Khodabakhsh, Denny's franchisee. "We've been a key part of this community for more than twenty years, and we couldn't think of a better way to mark this occasion than with a Grand Slam of a celebration."
This Denny's also promises a "reinvigorated menu with a renewed focus on classic diner favorites" and "all-new, locally-inspired design."
Cafe Society's photographer will on-hand to document that new design. What will a Denver-inspired Denny's look like?
