Denny’s Brings Back #BuildYourOwnPancakes For the Rest of August, Mostly


The problem with custom-built menus is that most people aren’t chefs and therefore have no idea what tastes good together. “So you’re telling me I can have the bleu cheese, dried cranberries, fresh jalapenos, au jus, peanut sauce, horseradish mayo AND the garlic aioli on a deep-fried English muffin burger and truffle fries? Well don’t mind if I do!”

But at least you can’t mess up pancakes, right?

For a limited time (the next four weeks starting today), Denny’s is bringing back its popular “#BYOPancakes” menu, which allows guests to choose between “more than 300 possible” batter, mix-in and topping combinations to create their very own “only-slightly-less-unique-than-the-next-guy’s” short stack or tall stack masterpiece.

Two pancakes or three; two eggs, two bacon strips or two sausage links; hash browns, red-skinned potatoes or grits; pecans or bacon; strawberries or peanut butter; whipped cream or chocolate chips – whatever carb-heavy ensemble you decide to roll with today, just know that the BYOP menu is available all day every day with prices starting at just $3.99. And that whatever you make, it probably won’t taste as good as the chef-invented versions. But at least you can still call it yours.
