Denny's reports earnings after the market close today, and Cramer said Friday he expects the restaurant chain to report great results that could propel the stock higher on Tuesday.
Cramer also said he thinks Denny's could give investors a reason to buy other restaurant names if the chain reports the strong quarter he is expecting.
The consensus estimate calls for Denny's to report earnings of 9 cents a share on revenue of $116.84 million, according to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters.
In the first quarter last year, Denny's reported earnings of 7 cents a share, which matched the consensus estimate. Revenue totaled $111.92 million, which came up short of the consensus estimate of $112.97 million.

Sebastian Silva commented on Denny's in a recent post on Real Money. Here is what he had to say about the stock:
Cramer's game plan includes Denny's on Monday, a great restaurant that he thinks may give investors a reason to buy other restaurant names if Denny's comes in as strong as expected.
"Restaurant stocks had been darlings when gasoline was going down and the dollar was going higher, but both trends have reversed and now the group's being hammered," Cramer added. "I want to see if there's a bottom being put in and, if so, we might want to buy more Panera (PNRA) for [Action Alerts PLUS]."
