NEWS: Denny’s Goes Curd-razy and Makes a Menu as Cheesy as This Title


I look forward to the day when Denny’s creates a new menu that honors a vegetable and calls it something like Celery-bration. But until then, I’ll have to celebrate gooey cheese with Denny’s new “Let’s Get Cheesy!” menu.

The dishes include:

Mac ‘n Cheese Big Daddy Patty Melt – a hand-pressed beef patty topped with new creamy Mac ‘n Cheese, melted cheddar cheese, and zesty Frisco sauce on grilled potato bread, served with a side of wavy-cut French fries. (Nutritional Facts: 1,690 calories, 99 grams of fat, 36 grams of saturated fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 2,010 milligrams of sodium, 7 grams of fiber, and 64 grams of protein.)

Cheese Please Omelette – a three-egg omelette with a blend of cheeses folded in, topped off with a creamy cheese sauce and diced tomatoes, served with hash browns and choice of bread. (Nutritional Facts: 800 calories, 57 grams of fat, 21 grams of saturated fat, 780 milligrams of cholesterol, 2,090 milligrams of sodium, 2 grams of fiber, and 37 grams of protein.)

Winner Winner Cheesy Dinner – two golden-fried chopped beef steaks covered in pepper jack cheese sauce, served with a side of new creamy Mac ‘n Cheese, broccoli topped with cheese sauce and dinner bread.

Each “Let’s Get Cheesy!” items does have a lot of cheese, but if your heart so desires (and if it’s weak, I hope it doesn’t), you can add even more cheese to any dish for an extra 69 cents. Also, you can substitute a serving of Mac ‘n Cheese to any entree for no extra charge.

The “Let’s Get Cheesy” menu is available all day, every day for a limited time only at prices starting from $4.99.

Actually, you know what? I no longer look forward to Celery-bration. I look forward to someday celebrating “Let’s Get Cheesy with Baconalia!”

  1. Those are, seriously, the least healthy food items I have ever read about. And I thought some of the stuff on the JITB menu was bad. 100+ grams of fat per SERVING? Jesus!

  2. That all sounds awful. Just what country fried steak needs; cheese sauce and another layer of cheese. I genuenly hate this promotion.

  3. Just had this tonight with mom. She, of the Big Cheese Country-Fried Steak and Eggs, and I chose Winner Winner Cheesy Dinner.

    There is *a lot* of cheese sauce incorporated.

    There’s also fries smothered (cheese sauce & bacon bits!), advertised as an appetizer, but am sure you can do it to your fries in your entree (like when hash browns were offered covered and smothered)

    Finally, how about cheese for dessert? Yes, a Strawberry Cheesecake shake is available. A cheesy promotion, indeed!
