Denny’s Invites Patrons to ‘Build Your Own Omelette’


Denny’s — the chain that brought you  DIY Grand Slams, pancakes and burgers — is now giving customers the choice to build their own omelettes.


Patrons dining in are given the following options:

Start Up: Three eggs and choice of cheese.

Double Up: Three eggs, choice of cheese and two additional ingredients.

Load Up: Three eggs, choice of cheese and four additional ingredients.

Then, you can choose from these various ingredients to build your omelettes with:

Cheese: American cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, smoky cheese blend, Swiss cheese and pepper jack queso.

Meats: Bacon, chicken sausage, chorizo sausage, crumbled sausage, diced ham, prime rib and turkey bacon.

Veggies: Avocado, diced tomatoes, fire-roasted peppers & onions, sautéed zucchini & squash, jalapeños, pico de gallo, sautéed mushrooms and spinach.


Each additional ingredient afterwards is an extra charge of 50 cents. Every omelette creation also comes with a side of hash browns or grits and a choice of any bread (biscuits, white, wheat and sourdough). The meals start at $5.99, $6.99 and $7.99.

Personally, Denny’s is the place to go after a massive hangover, so I generally never partake in build-it-yourself items if I can help it. It’s too much of a headache deciding what to add and what to keep off. Luckily, I was sober as a judge this morning so I thought why not give it a go?

Verdict: It was alright. 

Though I’ve only had Denny’s omelettes a few times, the BYOO version didn’t really click with me the way some of their other menu items did. If I do come back, I’ll definitely try one of their new omelette dishes: the Chorizo Tortilla Omelette, the Fit Fare Loaded Veggie Omelette and the Bacon Avocado Omelette. Three new items for those who wish to opt-out of building their own breakfast, but still want  to have an omelette nonetheless.
