Years ago before they had the big burger. They did have a chicken wing eating hall of fame deal at the time, sure they still do.

It's OK. I'd say there's nothing special about the place -- other than those huge burgers they publicize, and which I've never wanted to try. We'd stop there for something quick on the way up to Connecticut along Interstate 80.

IMO the overriding aspect of DBB is its friendliness. For me it's comforting to find a place like that in what is pretty much the middle of nowhere, but also easily accessible from the interstate. Add in the fact that there is nothing else even modestly interesting for 150 miles in any direction, and it becomes a major attraction. I wouldn't make a pilgrimage there, but I wouldn't pass it by if I was going that way, either. I mean, where else would you stop, in that section of the country, at meal time?

And I don't need a big burger myself. I carry my eating bona fides right where they belong, around my waist and measured by my belt size.

Well, there's a truck stop just down I-80 where I've wanted to stop for years because of the sign advertising the place that says it's the home of the worst pie in the world.

Hello all ,

A few years ago a few buddies and I were planning to make the pilgrimage to Dennys Beer Barrel after taking in Ground Hog Day in Puxstatowney . A snowstorm knocked us out of the trip and we never rescheduled . Arrgh!!!
I so wanted to give it a shot , but now after my surgery its out of the question.
Good luck to anyone who tries the big one
