Norms: slightly abnormal?

  • Dec 14, 2008

I usually enjoy supporting smaller-scale chain restaurants like Norms. They usually face extreme competition from national chains like Denny's that serve similar food. But for some reason, Norms just doesn't cut it for me. Not to say that their food is particularly bad, but I guess I'm too used to Denny's.

But it doesn't stop there. Each Norms is decorated in a classic diner-style theme, so it's kind of like stepping back into time. Except the problem with Norms is that their plates, utensils, and furniture look like the same ones that were originally purchased back in 1949 when the chain was founded! I guess maybe there's some heavenly reason that "Norms" and "worn" rhyme just a bit?

In any case, their food is not bad, but sometimes I'm in the mood for a restaurant that invests just a bit more in its upkeep. Despite being similar to Denny's, it's worth it to try Norms if you haven't yet. If not, however, rest easy knowing you haven't missed too much.
