Dinner after dark? It happens.

The vibes were right. The DJ was playing all your favourite songs. One thing led to another… but now it’s late, your stomach is growling, and everything is closed.

Or is it?

You might think of Denny’s as your ‘morning-after’ breakfast place (with mimosas) BUT they’re also one of the few spots in Calgary open late. Some locations are even open 24 hours!

Here are a few reasons why you should make a beeline for Denny’s after the bar closes…

Listen, everyone’s after-bar go-to is a little different. Luckily, Denny’s has options. 

Here are some popular picks for late-night eats:

All-American Slam: It’s technically morning, so why not order breakfast? It’s a classic, with eggs cooked to order, bacon strips, sausage links, hash browns, and toast. You might even prevent a hangover!

Chicken Tenders: Late-night snacking and chicken tenders are a match made in heaven. Get some crispy chicken with your choice of dipping sauce.

Loaded Nachos: What could be better for sharing? Stop by with the party crew and fight over some loaded nachos with melted cheese, jalapeños, tomatoes, onions, and more yummy toppings.

Burgers and Sandwiches: You can never go wrong with a handheld. You can count on Denny’s for some drool-worthy burgers and sandwiches. Personal favs include the Bacon Avocado Cheeseburger or the Club Sandwich.

Pancakes: Maybe you’re more of a sweet than a savoury person. Denny’s is famous for its fluffy pancakes, and they’re usually available on the late-night menu for those craving a little treat.

Milkshakes: You can always order a milkshake too! Perfect for dessert or a standalone if you’re not too hungry. They’ve got all the classics, like chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry.
