Our Family is Flipping for Free Kids’ Pancakes at Denny’s! – Frugal Novice

Our Family is Flipping for Free Kids’ Pancakes at Denny’s!

This post is part of a compensated ambassadorship with Denny’s. All opinions are honest and are my own.

I’ve written many times over  the past few years about how affordable it is for families to eat at Denny’s. Well, it’s now even easier and more affordable than ever for families to enjoy its all-new pancakes thanks to its “Free Pancakes for Kids” offer. This whole month your kids will have a free opportunity to see if Denny’s new pancake stacks—made with fresh buttermilk, real eggs and vanilla—really are better than ever.

For the first time, the pancakes are available in a variety of kid-sized signature dishes, including the Jr. Cinnamon Pancakes, Jr. Strawberries & Cream Pancakes and Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Kids ages 10 and under can enjoy Denny’s pancakes in any of these dishes for free every day in September from 4-10 p.m. with the purchase of one adult entrée at participating locations. We will definitely be going and taking advantage of this great deal! You can also add sides for just 89 cents each – I know my boys will want to add bacon to their pancakes!


“With families getting back into groove of the school year, the month of September is the perfect opportunity for fans of Denny’s to take advantage of our Free Pancakes for Kids offer,” said John Dillon, (follow him on Twitter, by the way – @DillonJohnW), chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “Not only is this a great way for our guests, including kids, to try our new pancakes, but it is also our way of inviting families to enjoy breakfast for dinner at an affordable price.”

The Free Pancakes for Kids promotion is pretty amazing, but there’s more. Denny’s will also partner with No Kid Hungry® this month, raising money to help end childhood hunger. If you remember, I wrote last year about their partnership with NKH – it’s a charity I love and am really proud to help support. Denny’s has donated more than $3.3 million to No Kid Hungry so far – how cool is that?!  This year is another opportunity to increase that amount and help even more kids.


“Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry program is one of the most recognizable annual anti-hunger campaigns in the nation and we’re proud to have the ability to partner with this worthy organization for the sixth year in a row,” said Dillon. “At Denny’s, we know a meal is essential to a child’s well-being and can be directly linked to their academic, health and economic futures. We remain committed to working together with our team members and guests to combat childhood hunger and hope to see even more success this year.”


Now through Oct. 2, nearly 1,600 Denny’s restaurants nationwide will join the fight to end childhood hunger with all proceeds going directly to No Kid Hungry. Through No Kid Hungry, every $1 donation received provides a child with 10 healthy meals. Think about that – ONE dollar provides a child with ten healthy meals. If you donate $10, that’s 100 healthy meals – that’s amazing! To thank you for your generous donation, Denny’s will provide a discount coupon redeemable at participating locations upon your next visit once you donate.


This year, Denny’s will also donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time the hashtag #ShareMySlam is shared on Twitter and Instagram, giving guests another way to help this important cause. Guests may also contribute to the campaign with a monetary donation of their choice at dennysnokidhungry.com.

    Thank you for sharing, I did not know that Denny’s had something like this going on. As a mom of 4, with different activities going on I don’t always time to have dinner on the table. And sometime breakfast for dinner is awesome and at Denny’s it won’t break my pocket

    This is a great deal and I wish we had a Dennys closer to us. How can you go wrong with pancakes and that is a great price for each side. I am going to let my sister know as the little one just started enjoying pancakes.

    I love that Denny’s is doing this. We have also found out that Denny’s is an allergen-friendly dining spot for our son. Denny’s has a nice menu and it sounds fun to be flipping for free at their restaurant

    The No Kid Hungry program is a wonderful way to help kids. No kid should go hungry, not even for one meal. I plan to donate when I visit Denny’s this coming week.

    We eat at Denny’s a lot, maybe too often. We sometimes go as a family. Sometimes we tag along with couples from church. I’ll take free pancakes for my kiddo. He’ll want some bacon with that pancake, I’m sure.

    Way to go, Denny’s! Who can pass up free pancakes for the kiddos and great sides at affordable prices. We rarely go out to eat because it can get so expensive. This will be a great (and frugal!) night out with the kids!

  • Jenn September 10, 2016 at 12:07 am

    Love this!! I definitely would not pass this up! My family would also flip out over this too haha! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I love that they are doing their part to end childhood hunger. It is such a problem and It just absolutely breaks my heart. We are going to have to go support Dennys this month for sure.

    Denny’s always has such great deals! Pancakes are my kids’ favorite breakfast food so they’ll love this. I’m definitely going to take them. It’ll be a great time out for the family.
