SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The Denny’s Corp. is adding five offerings to its $2 $4 $6 $8 value menu. The new menu choices include a cheese quesadilla, nacho salad, fried cheese melt, bacon chipotle skillet and fried shrimp platter.

"The $2 $4 $6 $8 Value Menu was introduced to redefine the concept of traditional value menus by offering guests around-the-clock affordable menu options, without settling on quality and service," said John Dillon, vice-president of marketing and product development for Denny’s.

The fried cheese melt falls into the $4 category within the value menu and features four fried mozzarella sticks between two slices of grilled sourdough bread.

Three of the five menu items feature a Tex Mex flavor, including the cheese quesadilla made with a flour tortilla, filled with cheddar cheese and topped with pico de gallo and sour cream for $2. The nacho salad starts on a foundation of lettuce topped with ground beef, shredded cheddar cheese, pico de gallo and sour cream served with flour tortillas for $6. The bacon chipotle skillet includes grilled chicken topped with bacon and a blend of cheeses and chipotle sauce. It is served with two sides and dinner bread plus choice of soft drink or coffee for $8.

The fried shrimp platter includes 10 deep-fried shrimp served with french fries, coleslaw, cocktail sauce and dinner bread plus choice of drink or coffee for $8.
