According to Denny’s, Christmas Day has been its busiest day for seven consecutive years. Last year, the chain served nearly 1.5 million guests. Naturally, Denny’s is open again this year, 24/7, and offering its full platform of options to diners. That means you can order on Christmas through Denny’s online and mobile ordering platform and even have it delivered where available. There are also new festive flavors to pick from, including Pumpkin Cream Pancakes, White Chocolate Raspberry Pancakes, and Cranberry Orange Pancakes.
“Denny’s has always been synonymous with serving our guests whatever they want, whenever they want it—and that applies 24/7, 365 days a year, including Christmas Day,” says John Dillon, chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “This year, our guests have the added luxury of being able to enjoy their favorite Denny’s dish from the comfort of their home—or wherever they want—thanks to ‘Denny’s on Demand’. So whether it's enjoying turkey and all the trimmings in their local Denny’s restaurant, or indulging in hot Buttermilk Pancakes while relaxing in their Christmas pajamas at home, we look forward to once again serving all of America anywhere on Christmas Day.”
Sizzler announced earlier this week that it planned to open “many” locations on Christmas Day. No word exactly on what that means, so it’s worth a call to your local restaurant. The menu will include traditional favorites, such as Steak & Lobster, as well as a new entrée, Bourbon Peppercorn Sirloin Cuts, freshly prepared in Sizzler’s kitchens. The Unlimited Craft Salad Bar spotlights Sweet Potato Pomegranate Salad for the holidays.
“One of the trends we have noticed in recent years is an increase in business on special occasions, including holidays,” says Kristina Van Bruggen, vice president of Marketing.
Of course IHOP is open all day on Christmas. The 24/7 pancake restaurant never closes its doors, and that includes during the holiday season. The typical menu is being offered. Some locations, however, might have reduced hours. So it’s worth calling before you go. It’s even rumored that certain restaurants will make snowman pancakes.
