I went to Denny's for dinner and I got to order off the Senior Citizen menu.
(I am 56)

I had grilled chicken, Cheddar mash potatoes, Dippable Vegies - Carotts and Cucumbers. and Garlic toast.

Ate 1/2 of everything and gave my friend my toast.

And the dipable veggies are listed on their side dishes. Of course they had a poor selection of low fat dip only had french to dip it in, but hey at least they have this option. Next time I go I will take my own dip.

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

And I'm just curious. Your not old enough to the senior dinner yet right?! And did you ask them if you could eat off it?

The last time I was a Denny's, I tried to get the senior meal. I am 57 and my philosophy is if you have to be over 55, you should get something out of it besides wrinkles!

I guess it depends upon your server because I was told I was not old enough, so I got the huge portion that is now normal, and brought most of it home to my husband.

Next time I go, I'll look around and find a server that looks like they have no clue. Either that, or I'll wear one of my mom's sweaters. That ought to do it, she's 80.

That is the best compliment a girl can received. LOL. Actually Our Denny's let you at age 55 . But believe me that is the only time I admit to being a senior.

I have also ordered the kids meal from Applebees. I explained that I have to eat small portions due to recuperating from recent surgery they had no problem.) I did not say what surgery) But I have not tried it anywhere else though.

I find most places are pretty good if you say you just had stomach surgery. Most times the servers don't want to hear the type of surgery or ask questions so are pretty helpful and considerate. :)

I always eat of the senior menu at Bob Evens and I'm only 21!

I've had the worst luck with not being able to order off of kids menus even if I have my card that my doctor gave me! It's really stupid. So I'm stuck paying higher prices and I get a ton of food that usually goes to waste in my fridge after :(
