Did you know what you were getting into Super Bowl Sunday when you saw the Denny's Ad?
I will keep this short and to the point. My hats off to the staff at Denny's Restaurant in Batavia today. I could not believe how well they survived the overwhelming crowd that formed early this morning and continued through the day.
One of the ads for the Super Bowl announced that between 6am and 2pm you could receive a free Grand Slam Breakfast meal at Dennys. After searching the internet to confirm this, I decided that I would give it a try. I loaded up my two toddlers and headed out.
When we arrived at Dennys I thought for sure that I had made a mistake. The lot was full. Total strangers were helping to direct traffic. The waiting area was full to beyond capacity. The crowd was calm and patient. The staff took names and the number of people in the party. We waited about an hour. I didn't think that was too bad for the crowd. The staff was better then some fine quality restaurants I have eaten in.
Thank you to my waitress Lori, The busboy that would play peekaboo with my son, the lovely Mom/Son (Sue) group that ate with us, and everyone in the kitchen. I applaud the job very well done.
By the way, we did not know Sue and her son when we entered Denny's. I offered to have a couple join us in order to make room for another group at another table. It was a great experience. It was a delight for my kids to have someone elses attention for awhile too. Thank you.
