Our Picks

Ryan’s Pick: Denny’s makes a really good Beyond Burger. Just make sure to order with no cheese and switch out the sauce. Personally, I like to add a combo of the Mango Habanero sauce and the Bourbon sauce. I’ve also always been a huge fan of the Seasoned Fries too.

Jen’s Pick: I haven’t had the opportunity to eat at a Denny’s since being vegan. I do like seeing they have plenty of vegan options!
