Belleville Denny’s closes for renovation

Parts of booths that once made up the interior of the Denny’s restaurant at 1130 S. Illinois St. in Belleville now are in piles in the parking lot as crews begin a renovation of the diner.

Renovation has begun at the Belleville Denny’s.

According to a worker at the site, the diner was closed Tuesday so crews could begin work gutting the interior of the restaurant that’s located at 1130 S. Illinois St.

Stacks of booths and tabletops littered the parking lot as workers prepared to pour a new section of sidewalk near the restaurant entrance.

By the end of the renovation, the inside and outside of the restaurant will have had a total facelift.

Curious customers can take a look at the Denny’s at 737 W. U.S. 50 in O’Fallon for an idea of what the Belleville site may look like when the work is done. The O’Fallon site celebrated a grand reopening after a similar renovation last week.

If the Belleville project goes as smoothly as the O’Fallon one did, work could be completed in 10 to 11 days, and diners can expect to be back in the diner shortly after that.
