The Proof Is In the Pancake with Denny's - Review

I received compensation for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
One sure way for my husband to get me to tag along with him to drag races is by promising to take me to Denny's in Wayland, MO to eat at some point on the way there or back.  Denny's is one of my favorite eating establishments.  Unfortunately, the closest Denny's location from where I live is about 40 minutes away.  But, that doesn't stop me from eating there once in a while.  And I got the privilege of dining at Denny's in Wayland on Sunday.  Jason and I headed there, excited to divulge in Denny's deliciousness.  

Mozzarella Cheese Sticks 

To say that I spend too much time browsing the menu is an understatement.  There's always so many food options that I want to try.  

For an appetizer Jason and I wanted to try the new Bacon Cheddar Tots, but the restaurant did not have them available on that particular day.  We instead went for the Mozzarella Cheese Sticks and they were quite yummy.  

For our main course, Jason chose the Spicy Sriracha Burger.  It's a burger made with bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapenos, and lots of other toppings.  I went for The Super Bird.  It's a delicious sandwich made up of turkey breast, melted Swiss cheese, bacon, and tomato on grilled sourdough.  To share, we ordered two Buttermilk pancakes. 

The service left a bit to be desired, but the food was outstanding as it always is when I visit a Denny's restaurant.

Right now Denny's has some great promotions and exciting news going on.  For instance, Denny's pancakes have been transformed with pure ingredients and classic flavors for a bigger and tastier pancake.  Fresh buttermilk, real eggs and a hint of vanilla are the star ingredients in Denny's new recipe.  I prefer my pancakes topped only with butter and syrup  but if you're in to going all out with your pancakes, there are four limited-time Signature Builds - the Sticky Bun Pancake Breakfast, Strawberries & Cream Pancake Breakfast, Double Berry Banana Pancake Breakfast, and Peanut Butter Cup Pancake Breakfast.

For a limited time, Denny's is also has a "Free Pancakes for Kids" offer.  Every day during the month of September, children ages 10 and under are invited to eat free pancakes with the purchase of one adult entree.  The offer is valid from 4-10 pm at participating locations.

In addition to its "Free Pancakes for Kids" promotion, Denny's has also kicked off its sixth annual No Kid Hungry campaign.  Through No Kid Hungry, every $1 donation received provides a child with ten healthy meals.  To thank guests for their donations, Denny's will provide a discount coupon redeemable upon their next visit.  Denny's will also donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time the hashtag #ShareMySlam is shared on Twitter and Instagram.
Denny's Kid's Cups

Denny's also has new kid's cups featuring Oh from Home, Donkey from Shrek, and Po from Kung Fu Panda.  The new headband cups include a beverage with purchase, and there will be special holiday themed cups in the coming months.

I love it when companies give back! Too bad we no longer have a Denny's in our area :(
