Poll: The obligatory Denny's poll.
Denny who? 14 / 23%
I really need to do some deep soul searching first. 4 / 7%
I'm not thrilled with them, but will give them this one last chance to redeem themselves. 3 / 5%
The food is crappy and so is the service. No way. 5 / 8%
Definitely.  6 / 10%
If PJ chokes down a meal, so can I. 3 / 5%
I really don't want to put myself through this again. 1 / 2%
I eat there at least once a week. Why not? 2 / 3%
I'll go, but only if they give me a toy (dirt doesn't count). 1 / 2%
I don't eat out much. Very unlikely that I will go. 9 / 15%
I don't eat out much, but I will make an exception for this. 6 / 10%
Whoever made this decision should be fired. 6 / 10%

The obligatory Denny's poll. Can't Post

Since the announcement of Denny's pairing up with The Hobbit, I have seen mixed reactions to said announcement. Most are based on personal experience at Denny's restaurants, as was mine.

Will you go to Denny's for a delicious Hobbit meal?

Well, if they're not even giving out toy dirt, I'm not going. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Denny's restaurants I've been in have had plenty of dirt to spare. Tongue

It doesn't say [In reply to] Can't Post

you won't receive some complimentary dirt with your dining experience. It's just not going to be included in the Denny's Crappy Meal.

At my local Denny's, sure! [In reply to] Can't Post

The manager and waitstaff like to joke around with the customers, and I've never gotten a bad meal at this particular one.

And it's right on the access road to the mall which has our favorite stadium-seating movie theater...so we've had plenty of meals there, both before and after movies.

Mmm, "second" breakfast before the Hobbit...Cool

Humph! [In reply to] Can't Post

I had to put I needed some soul searching for this one. I have no grave objections to Denny's as a chain. Some of the links, however, are weaker than others. Ours is a weak link. If grease is you thing, it is the place. We have eaten in Denny's that were clean and the food quite good.

So, I don't know yet if we will go just to get some trading cards and a tummy ache!

Meh. [In reply to] Can't Post

As with Burger King, I have eaten there before. I don't go there often and will not be making special trips just for this but I won't avoid it should there be a reason to go.

It seems that the quality varies quite a bit from place to place. Around here, it's a step up from fast food but not a destination restaurant.

So I guess my vote is "none of the above"

I tend to think any movie tie-in to a restaurant is ridiculous, IMO. [In reply to] Can't Post

But I guess it's just another way to promote the movie. Or is it to promote the restaurant? Who can tell?

The only thing I know about Denny's [In reply to] Can't Post

is that the lights fell into my friend's daughter's fried eggs during an earthquake, so I am possibly unqualified to vote in the poll.

It seems [In reply to] Can't Post

that no matter how many possible answers one tries to cover, there is inevitably something that is overlooked and ends up in the "none of the above" category. I should have added that selection. Blush

Out of curiousity, I will go and try one of these meals. I hope to be pleasantly surprised. Previous experience suggests otherwise, but I will keep an open mind.

Did the eggs cushion their fall? [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, but [In reply to] Can't Post

they never got to eat them (with or without lighting garnish) as they had to evacuate. Crazy

Other [In reply to] Can't Post

I eat one breakfast at a Denny's when on a long road trip. It's a ritual. Otherwise I pass them by. We don't even have one here, so it's a moot point anyway.

I go there occasionally for bacon and eggs.. [In reply to] Can't Post

not many places (other than McDonald's) can mess up bacon and eggs.

I will NOT have other than breakfast there, though.
