My husband loves eating breakfast for dinner. I don't personally eat breakfast foods since I am the pickiest eater in the history of the universe. So when he gets a hankering for eggs, pancakes, waffles, and other breakfast foods, we always head to Denny's so he can get his "fix". You see, he can have all the breakfast foods he'd like and I can order a burger or steak or whatever I happen to be in the mood for. That's one thing I love about Denny's....They have a great variety, and everyone is bound to find something they'll enjoy.
Did you know that this month, Denny's has brought back their much-loved BYOPancakes menu? It's only available till the end of August, but it is definitely worth checking out! When I told Dan that they were back, he got very excited and couldn't wait to create his own pancake concoctions!

Our BYOPancakes Experience :
Dan and I headed to the Denny's in Akron, Ohio to check out their special BYOPancakes. He was so excited, and it took him quite some time to figure out how to customize his stack of fluffy pancakes. So many possibilities were available, and he wanted to create the "perfect" pancakes.
While we waited for him to decide, we enjoyed an appetizer. This just happens to be a Build Your Own Appetizer Sampler, and we chose new Jalapeno Coins, new Chips and Queso, and an old favorite, Chicken Fingers. (Hey, you can never go wrong with Chicken Fingers!)
The Jalapeno Coins were battered nicely and were very, very spicy. (Which happens to be just the way we like them!) The tortilla chips arrived nice and hot, and had a wonderful, creamy queso to dip them in. I loved the queso, which was mild in flavor with just a little hint of spiciness to it. Yum! I even dipped my chicken fingers in it!
Finally, Dan decided on his pancakes and we were ready to order our entrees. He got a short stack with bacon mixed into the buttermilk batter. (Yes, you can actually have crisp chunks of bacon cooked into the pancakes!) Topping the pancakes were fresh strawberries and a nice dollop of whipped cream. He also got a side of bacon, hash browns, and sunny side up eggs.
I ordered a Double Cheeseburger and Fries, and added Onion Tanglers to my burger. When it arrived, I was taken aback by the sheer size of this monster burger. So if you order this dish, I suggest you arrive very, very hungry! I was only able to finish about half! Thankfully, Denny's is always very good re-heated the next day.
Overall, we had a great time visiting Denny's and checking out their new, limited time only menu items. Dan's pancakes, while totally unconventional, were a big hit, and he loved them! My burger was nothing short of delicious as well. The meat was nice and juicy, and was perfectly cooked. Of course the appetizers were stellar as well.
I do want to say that I am incredibly impressed by the Akron Denny's. We had only been to the Canton location before, and we both thought that Akron had superior service and the quality of the food was also much better. Our waitress was very friendly and made sure to check on us often. The restaurant was also very clean and well-organized. We will definitely be back to this location!
