Vegan Grand Slam
Not really but there is a pretty good vegan option at Denny’s. Never you mind that they’re in the middle of a slovenly celebration of Bacon. Never you mind that separate menu with the bacon ice cream sundae and bacon pancakes. And never you mind that ‘People of Denny’s’ would make an appropriate sister-site to People of Wal-mart. They have got a fully vegan Amy’s veggie burger on their menu, field tested by many veggie reporters and now me.
So there it is, their Veggie Burger, minus the cheese and grilled onion (for fear of what they are grilled near, with, on [and other propositions]). My burger arrived looking dry and not greasy, likely nuked. And, in this case, I am relieved about that. It certainly was not grilled on the hot plate The Electrician‘s bacon cheeseburger was on. I had read that their bun was also vegan with no creepy animal-derived dough conditioners to worry about. However, I have learned now that this bun, their whole wheat bun, does have honey in it unfortunately. The burger was topped with fresh spinach and tomato. The fries were salty and tasty, not greasy or reeking of chicken fingers like I have experienced before in similar eateries’ dirty oil. It was a good, hearty bite that gave me my veggie burger fix. Sure, I won’t likely return but it is good to know that this popular roadside establishment can offer me some sustenance.
