To us, food is synonymous with freshness, quality and a hot grill. We are your quintessential diner which preserves one of America’s great traditions: a really good burger and a great pancake!

We stay away from assembly-line work and still prepare our dishes fresh upon ordering and entirely from scratch. Our fries are crispy, the shakes are thick, and the burgers are hot! Your food is cooked right in front of you including our HUBCAP pancake. Come on in and watch us cook yours today!

    First time at JimDenny today: bowl of chili - A+; one-patty cheeseburger - A-; and fries - A+.

    This was the best chili I have ever had in a restaurant anywhere, hands down! The beans were nice, a lot of tender meat, nice small chunks of fresh tomato, very luscious chili flavor, and the bowl
    was greater than the sum of the parts! And ample fresh diced onion and shredded cheddar on top. This chili was magnificent. Thanks!

    I've heard some wonderful recommendations on your restaurant and I would like to come on the week end ... you are open early correct.

    It's like stepping into life 50 years ago when people actually cared about one another. This family truly believes their slogan painted in front of the counter: "Enter as strangers, leave as
    friends." Crystal, Tierney and Josh are good people, so are the rest. Food is nice old fashioned big portions. Watch Josh work that grill!

  • C.L.Higgins (Sunday, April 03 16 10:36 am EDT)

    Thanks for the great burger and bad breath! ;-)

    Hub cap was great just finished it after getting it last Sat.

  • Stephen Milla (Sunday, July 12 15 07:28 pm EDT)

    Good food, especially their breakfast menu. First time there about 2 years ago and took on the hubcap and spoke pancake challenge and broke the record.You have 20 minutes to eat that mammoth hotcake,
    and knocked it out in 15 minutes and 10 seconds ! Waddled out of there when I was done. LOL !

  • Jessica Gewirz (Wednesday, June 17 15 03:17 pm EDT)

    First time here! Awesome breakfast burrito!

  • It's Thursday must be Jim Denny's (Tuesday, January 27 15 09:18 pm EST)

    breakfast service ends at 1 pm. I go in and enjoy mushroom Swiss burger and talk to the staff. Look forward to my visits.

  • Denny Crane, Esq. (Friday, January 23 15 10:11 am EST)

    If you're in Sacramento, stop in here for breakfast or lunch, especially if you're alone. Sit at the counter. Talk to Mom, or her family members. It's like having breakfast with friends or family
    when you're out of town. "Enter as Strangers - Leave as Friends."

    I tried to call Jim Denny's today, and there was no answer and I could not leave a message.

    I wanted to contact someone as I write a blog and have a video channel called "Retro-fornia".

    Our focus is on mid century and vintage places, events, people.

    We want to feature Jim Denny's and we wanted to let you know.

    We will be there to shoot some short video and and take still photographs at noon, tomorrow, December 30th.

    We are excited to share the story with our readers and viewers.

    Thanks so much, feel free to email, call or text me.

    This is false advertising! We came before 1:30 for the hubcap pancakes. We made a special trip and were denied our order because you were out of batter.... ummm make more!!! That's why you are a
    restaurant! No customer service!
