Denny’s in Ithaca shuts down unexpectedly

No more Denny’s?

The restaurant unexpectedly shut down last week on Elmira Road in Ithaca.

The 24-hour mainstay was a favorite among college students and locals, as is the case in most communities that house a Denny’s franchise.

It’s unclear what led to the shutdown.

Signs were taken down late last week at the location.
