Don't mean to get defensive, BUT
- I waited, because my Mom, my sister and her 2 kids(who love Denny's and were excited about going) were all together, and I relaxed and enjoyed the time with them. Sorry that I don't really share a "East Coast" mentality that says you must be in and out, and can't enjoy the time. The free meal was as good a reason, as when I go out to Texas Roadhouse and wait for a good while for a meal that is not free. From the tone on this thread you would think people had committed heresy to go and take advantage of a good offer, and good food.

No worries man! It is your time and your stomach. I worked in the hospitality industry for ten years and we were always taught you are not selling them a meal or room you are selling them the experience. It sounds like you had a good experience with your family at a good price in a tough economy. That my friend is a win!

I may make the trip again with the kids (although I'd probably pay 5 bucks for them to have a bowl of cereal...)
My wife swears by Golden Corral's breakfast...I could just never bring myself to go in there...I may have to change my ways. It's not like I have to go far either (the one behind FSK Mall is a few miles from my house).

Golden Corral is amazing, also should try Blue Moon Diner for breakfast, I hit it up on the regular.

I keep seeing a Golden Corral commercial where they're advertising a steak wrapped in bacon, which under normal circumstances would be great, but it looks so gross in the ad that it makes me want to become a vegan. Seriously, I don't know how they managed to do it, but they've somehow made a steak wrapped in freaking bacon look like a hockey puck with a Slim Jim tied to it.

But, if they do indeed have good breakfast then all is forgiven.

they shut down the GC in my town and I only ate there once. It wasnt great. The only thing that was decent was the pot roast and several of the desserts. I was very skeptical of going there for breakfast last week, as I'm a picky breakfast person, but my cousin insisted. I was amazed. I have to say, though it was a lot nicer establishment than the one have in Culpeper. I don't think Culpeper had the facilities to put on the type of spread they did in Charlottesville. I wouldn't expect all of them to be as good, but if your'e in Charlottesville you should definitely stop in.

I haven't eaten at Denny's in years, but back when i used to smoke a lot of pot i'd go there in the middle of the night and meet drunk bar whores and the food seemed like heaven. I'm almost scared to go now...

Re: Who got their free Grand slam?

Yeah me and a friend went and got ours on Tuesday as well. I go to Denny's on occasion and it was nice to get a meal for free there, that was probably the first and last time our total bill was $4.12 haha. And we only had to wait about half an hour which wasn't that bad.
