Denny's Build You Own Burgers & Shakes

by - Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I find that one of the hardest part of being a mom and wife, is cooking dinner every night. The task gets especially harder if you have picky eaters. (Yes, I do include husbands in this category as well.)

Denny's has created a "Build Tour Own" Menu for burgers and shakes with options for almost any picky eater. These burgers start at just $6.99 at my local Denny's and only $3.79 for the shakes! 

There are 37 different ingredients to build your perfect burger:
  • Patty - Beef, Veggie, Grilled Chicken Breast or Turkey
  • Base - Sesame Seed, Whole Wheat, Grilled Potato or Cheddar
  • Cheese - American, Swiss, Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Mozzarella
  • Toppings - Too many to list but 15 regular and 9 premium yummy toppings!!
I can't imagine trying to cook that at home!

And for the shakes:
  • Flavor - Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Mix-Ins - Oreo® cookie pieces, chopped nuts, diced bacon, fresh banana, white chocolate chips, glazed pecans
  • Sauce - Hot fudge, strawberry topping, caramel, maple-flavored syrup, raspberry sauce, peanut butter sauce

Don't know where to start or need some inspiration? Denny's has a few favorites already made for you:
  • Macho Nacho Burger, Moons Over My Hammyburger, Cheesy Chili Cheeseburger with Cheese, Fresco Italiano Burger-O,  or the Cali Jack Turkey Burger.
  • Oreo® Mud Pie Milk Shake (my fave) , Crazy Caramel Crunch Milk Shake, Maple Bacon Milk Shake or the PB & Nana Milk Shake.
“With our new burger and milk shake menus, we wanted to celebrate these long-standing diner favorites while still offering our guests the individuality they enjoy and have come to expect from eating at America’s Diner.” - John Dillon, vice president of marketing and product development for Denny’s.

My opinion: Me and my family went to Denny's to make our own burgers. I have to admit the choices were a little intimidating and took a little longer for us to decide our meal choices than usual. I ordered the "Moons Over My Hammyburger" with tomatoes and spinach. To make sure the burger was stacked as I wanted it, the extra toppings were brought out to me on a side plate, which I really didn't mind. The burgers come with a side of fries, or you can substitute them for something else.  My husband finished his plate while me and the little one had leftovers. I really enjoyed spending time with my family at Denny's. Everyone was happy, and full! The food was prepared well and the price was great!
