I was sent a giftcard to try out the new Denny’s Red White and Blue Plate Specials in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are my own.
Last week, we took my mother-in-law to lunch for her birthday. She loves Denny’s and so do I, so Kayla and I decided that is where we would take her for her special birthday lunch. We wanted to try out the Denny’s Red White and Blue Plate Specials.
With summer upon us and vacations kicking off, Denny’s is saluting all things American with their nostalgic nod to the diner classic, Blue Plate Specials. The new limited-time menu offers guests the chance to step back in time and recreate the time spent in diners with family and friends!
I have to say that when I opened the menu, my mouth was watering!! I wanted to try every single one.
I got the Bourbon Chicken Skillet, my mother in law got the Red White and Blue Pancake Breakfast, and my daughter got the Fried Chicken Sandwich.
When my food arrived, I was literally knocked off my socks! Denny’s — way to go with these delicious and yummy meals!
This huge portion was priced at only $8, and I must say that it left me wanting more. I ate everything — including the broccoli.
John Dilon, vice president of Denny’s, had this to say:
“As America’s Diner we’re constantly looking for ways to reflect and stay true to the heritage on which we were founded, and nothing says diner like Blue Plate Specials,” said John Dillon, vice president of marketing and product development for Denny’s. “Once daily menu additions, known for being hearty, home-cooked style dishes offered at a low price, Blue Plate Specials have been reinvented at Denny’s. Our new menu was designed as a modern nod to this American tradition with flavors everyone knows and loves, at unbeatable value. We’re proud to celebrate and reintroduce this popular tradition to a new audience.”
More about the Blue Plate Specials
Guest can kick-start their day with the Red, White and Blue Pancakes Breakfast, featuring blueberry buttermilk pancakes topped with sliced fresh strawberries, cream cheese icing and whipped cream, or the sinfully sweet Apple Pie French Toast, served with two eggs cooked to order and choice of two sausage links or bacon strips.
Home-cooked favorites are given Denny’s signature spin with offerings including the Farmhouse Sausage Skillet, classic Homestyle Fried Chicken Sandwich, juicy Bourbon Bacon Burger, Bourbon Chicken Skillet and the BBQ Pepper Jack Country-Fried Steak.
No Blue Plate Special would be complete without a sweet treat. Denny’s new Red, White and Blue Milk Shakes are made with premium vanilla ice cream and come in variety of flavors including tempting Strawberry Cheesecake, Lemon Icebox Pie and Blueberry Cheesecake. Diners may also enjoy a refreshing finish to their meal with the White Lemon Chill, featuring a tasty blend of lemon and nonfat yogurt for a frozen treat that’s great any time of day.
What’s more, following Denny’s overhaul of its coffee system and in-house blends earlier in the year, the menu boasts two new summer coffee drinks. The Frosty Roast combines vanilla and coffee with ice to create a cool and creamy frozen drink, while the new Iced Coffee is a perfect pick-me-up on a warm day.
“During the hot summer months, our guests will appreciate these cold, refreshing coffees, featuring our Light and Bold diner blends. We look forward to introducing plenty of exciting coffee additions through the year,” added Dillon.
The new menu is available all day, every day, for just a limited time. Hop on in the car with your family and visit your nearest Denny’s for some good old fashioned food and fun.
