Pancakes For Dinner


This post is sponsored by Denny’s. I received compensation in exchange for my review, however, these thoughts are my own.

Family days aren’t always easy for us at the end of the month, but it’s nice to know we can find other ways to spend time together. Like going out for pancakes as a family.

More Than Pancakes
Our three-year-old son kept asking whether or not we’d be going to the museum. We eventually gave in and planned an afternoon at Young At Art Museum and dinner at our local Denny’s. We had heard about the “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer and I wanted to try their new Buttermilk Pancakes.

Denny's Free Pancakes For Kids
Breakfast just isn’t complete without sides, and Denny’s allows you to choose up to four! Our eldest was excited to have sausage links, and they were gluten free. As noted in the image above, most of their kid menu side options are gluten free.

For the month of September, Denny’s has partnered with No Kid Hungry to help those in need have access to a warm meal. Denny’s invites Instagram users who visit their diners to share an image of their meal using the hashtag #ShareMySlam and in return Denny’s will donate $1 to kick hunger to the curb.

Through No Kid Hungry, every $1 donation received provides a child with 10 healthy meals. To thank their guests for their generous donations, Denny’s will provide a discount coupon redeemable at participating locations upon their next visit.

Denny's is family friendlySeeing Kung Fu Panda on the cover of the kid’s menus made our little one smile. He loves animals.

Each pancake at Denny’s is hand-mixed to order, resulting in a tastier, fluffier product. What I love most about the pancakes at Denny’s is how much they look and taste like the ones we make at home.  The new buttermilk pancakes are a great alternative for anyone looking to have a wholesome breakfast with the family, or brunch with old friends. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll go with pancakes for dinner.

Menu Options For All
If you’re planning to bring the family to Denny’s to try their new buttermilk pancakes, you’ll need to think about one thing. And thankfully, it’s not your budget.

Denny’s has a $2 $4 $6 $8 Value Menu that includes 16 dishes at affordable prices to help guests stay in their budget range. There’s even a $4 All You Can Eat Pancakes and the Fried Seafood Platter. So all you really need to be concerned with is accommodating everyone in your car.

You can even bring grandma and grandpa along to take advantage of the Denny’s 55+ Menu which includes great deals and nutritious options.

Even if you’d like to maintain your figure, Denny’s has options for you too! The Fit Fare options feature healthy choices which are lower in fat and calories, and higher in protein and fiber.

Stop by your local Denny’s and grab one of these. They have so many options for kids to choose from, as well as activities to keep them busy while you eat. If you visit Denny’s during the month of September, you’ll be able to take advantage of the “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer, and help raise money to end childhood hunger.

Who knows, you might even get inspired for your kid’s Halloween costume with these collectible headband cups from Dreamworks.

  1. My favorite thing about Denny’s is that they are always open. We don’t have one anywhere near us.

    1. Sorry to hear there isn’t one close to you. We had the same issue when we lived in North Jersey.

      This was my first time at Denny’s and I can’t wait to go back. Hope you get to go away for a bit and experience their menu options.
