Writing my post about Denny’s offering free refills on pancakes and fries the other day naturally made me a bit hungry. So I decided it was high time to pay them a visit. After all, who doesn’t have a hankering for a Grand Slam pretty much all of the time?
I figured there had to be at least one location in NYC. After all, there are four Apple stores in Manhattan, there has got to be at least one Denny’s somewhere, right?
Hopeful, I fired up Dennys.com and used their restaurant-finder tool. But I was soon met with devastating news: The nearest Denny’s location was 22 miles away and across state lines.Google estimated that getting there would require a subway ride, a train ride and a 30 minute walk.
I like endless flapjacks as much as the next guy, but an hour-and-a-half commute is a bit much. And who knows how late NJ Transit keeps its trains running. I guess I’ll just have to wait for Denny’s to open a restaurant in NYC (which I’m sure would make the Neighborhood Association-types apoplectic).
