Denny’s Payment Methods

The side of a Denny's diner.

Denny’s is a casual diner that’s open all night. You can buy breakfast entrees like pancakes, waffles, and omelets there, and you can also buy a burger and french fries there. This restaurant is very popular with college students and late-night shift workers because it provides a place to meet late at night. The Denny’s restaurant that I visited is located near a junior college.

This restaurant is also popular with customers who are traveling, such as vacationers and truck drivers. Denny’s is an affordable restaurant. It’s more expensive than a fast-food chain but less expensive than steakhouses and other high-end establishments. It provides table service and has a relatively large menu. And it also accepts a variety of payment methods.

Does Denny’s Accept Major Credit Cards?

Denny’s accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards. It also accepts Diner’s Club cards. This information was confirmed by the accepted payments sticker on the front window of the Denny’s restaurant.

Denny’s also accepts cash.

Does Denny’s Accept Mobile Payment Methods?

Denny’s accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, and other contactless payment methods at its restaurants. In 2019, the diner entered into a partnership with Presto, a company that makes tablets that serve as point-of-sale terminals. These tablets can accept contactless payments as well as other payment methods such as credit cards. Initially, these tablets weren’t available at all of Denny’s restaurants, so I looked up the Apple Maps profiles of the Denny’s restaurants in my area and confirmed that they accept contactless payments.

Denny’s also has rewards apps for the iPhone and Android phones. You can use these apps to make delivery orders as well as pickup orders.

Does Denny’s Accept International Payment Methods?

Denny’s accepts UnionPay and JCB cards and this information was confirmed by the restaurant’s window sticker. Also, since this diner accepts Discover it can also accept RuPay global cards. Denny’s is an international restaurant chain and it operates diners in Japan as well as the United States.

Does Denny’s Accept EBT?

Denny’s accepts EBT at many of its restaurants in Southern California but not all of them. I looked up the Restaurant Meals program lists for several counties to see which locations accepted this form of payment. Denny’s restaurants in Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Kern, and San Diego counties were on those lists but this restaurant didn’t appear on the list for Santa Barbara County. Restaurants have to sign up for the Restaurant Meals program to accept this payment option.

This is noteworthy because diners usually do not accept EBT. While many fast-food restaurants accept EBT in Southern California, Denny’s is a casual-dining restaurant so it has higher prices and uses higher-quality ingredients than these restaurants. Denny’s also offers amenities such as table service that aren’t available at fast-food restaurants. It also has a larger menu than a typical fast-food restaurant.

Denny’s doesn’t accept EBT for online orders so you can only use this payment method at its restaurants.

Does Denny’s Accept Other Payment Methods?

Denny’s sells gift cards on its website, and you can buy them in large quantities if your company’s giving away holiday gifts.
