    I made a post on their FB page telling them basically the same thing. It would be great if everybody on here went to their FB page and gave them your comments as well.

    Water under the bridge, but......

    Where is the monies you alleged to in the barrios I mentioned?

    Not an income, standard of living issue, really?

    People here make just about and in most cases less than $200.00 dollars a month and its your claim that it isn't an income issue?

    Ha!
    In Central America poor people celebrate Birthdays or special events at Pizza Hut, Burger King etc. These are minimum wage level people It seems lame but they love that stuff. Dominicans do not.

    You seem to know a lot about the ghetto folks in Santo Domingo? Is that the company you prefer ?

    NEVER AGAIN FOR ME.
    OMG now this is so true. At the capitol location on the conde, Id ask for water with lemon and get charged for both. Who freaking charges for water?

    I dont want toast, can you replace it with pancakes? No sir, thats an extra charge. They were never going to succeed like that

    Where in this world can you get toast replaced with pancakes or waffles without an extra charge?

    Avoiding the income portion like the plague, aren't you?

    I'm not allowing you to divert this to any other place other than the folks that have no income issues to eat at will at Dennys in Santo Domingo, while at the same time -- they get to take a flight at random to eat mediocre food in FL?

    That is the base of your position, prove it?

    Ha! so there are guetto folks in SDQ, perhaps the same group that travels to FL to eat breakfast?

    I was a regular at Denny's when they opened. I went every Sunday morning for months.

    Every Sunday I'd order grits with my eggs. "We don't have grits" they'd say. You'd think they'd catch on after a while, but they never did. I brought little envelopes of grits you mix with a cup of hot water. "We can't do that."

    I'd order biscuits and gravy. "We don't have that" I'd say "You have biscuits, right?" "Yes"

    I'd say "You have chicken fried steak with gravy, right" "Yes"

    "So bring me biscuits with the gravy from the chicken fried steak." They did, but brought the chicken fried steak too. And charged me for it.

    Then they eliminated the Chicken Fried Steak from the menu.

    Some of the most popular Denny's items, and they didn't serve them.

    We won't even talk about running out of hash browns every two weeks or so.

    Every.Two.Weeks. Think about that.

    I tried making comments and suggestions on their Facebook page. Over and over again.

    I spoke to managers on a weekly basis. I even spoke to the owner a few times. Zero interest.

    Instead, they decided to make it into a nightclub. A bar, disco lights, a DJ, and singers playing live music. In a Denny's.

    Forgive me, but they deserved to shut down.
    First they got rid of the Belgian Waffle Combo.....Then they had a Grand Slam for like $315 on the menu that was the best deal. Toward the end they got rid of that also and then you were forced to pay $415 for Lumberjack Slam with just an additional piece of ham. The dinner combo offers were expensive and small portions. Getting coffee and refills was always an ordeal as well.

    I frequented Denny's also, and was surprised to see it closed when I went for breakfast couple of weeks ago, along with Fuddruckers, wow. About 2 years ago, the food and service at the Denny's was actually quite good compared to most of the ones in the U.S. But like absolutely everything else in DR, things start to slide and no one who works there seems to care. You could sit in that Denny's for an eternity before someone would come and wait on you. After you got your food, they would rarely return to check on you. Several times I had to hunt down the waitress to get my check. If you asked for your drink without any ice, they would put it in a smaller glass. Who does that?

    Fuddruckers sometimes would have Turkey Burgers, which I like, sometimes not. Vanilla shakes sometimes, sometimes not. It's the same thing at Hooter's, sometimes they have it, sometimes they don't, then, they just don't have it anymore, ever! They almost never have Presidente Black, which I find ridiculous. Last time I was there, a roach decided to walk across the bar to have a drink with me....sigh.

    I tell people who come to visit to leave their "First-World Expectations" back in the U.S. Blessed are those who expect little, for they will never be disappointed.

    Could you be more specific in regards to a particular location? I have never seen toast replaced with a menu item at no additional cost.

    Just for curiosity, I checked the online Denny's menu. If you click on "customize for nutritional facts" you will see the options.

    ¡Mira! Así es.

    https://www.dennys.com/food/breakfas...mate-omelette/

    This would be for Denny's locations in the US.
