That's the image of an American [diner] or cafeteria.

So yes, Denny's is a (generic version) of a
quintessential American [diner] or cafeteria.

Breakfast in America is the sixth studio album by the English rock band Supertramp, released by A&M Records on 29 March 1979. It was recorded in 1978 at The Village Recorder in Los Angeles. It spawned four U.S. Billboard hit singles: "The Logical Song" (No. 6), "Goodbye Stranger" (No. 15), "Take the Long Way Home" (No. 10) and "Breakfast in America" (No. 62). In the UK, "The Logical Song" and the title track were both top 10 hits, the only two the group had in their native country.[1]

Everything leads back to Hopper and "Nighthawks."

The Art Institute of Chicago used to have "Nighthawks" right next to "American
Gothic." At least one curator understood the power of icons.
