This was a cute pace with typical diner food. Not bad. Not spectacular. Would go there again if I'm ever in the area again.

Neat place, great vibe. The food was alright, nothing all too exciting except they have a bar were you can watch your food being made! The staff was very personable and overall had a great experience. The prices aren't half bad either! Will definitely be back.

I like the diner idea and this place is convenient to places we stay, but this is a place to just drive on by. Food is ordinary at best and the service is unconcerned.

I am always reluctant to review a restaurant after only one visit if my personal experience seems at odds with the majority of the reviews. Maybe I just ordered from the wrong part of the menu. Or maybe the person in the kitchen was having an off day. Maybe the server was new. In these cases, I like to give... More

Our service at the counter was very good but food was mediocre. Pea soup had nice consistency but little bit of ham wasn't very good. Chicken fried steak with eggs was just ok. Eggs not really scrambled & chicken fried steak was so so. Toast was good! We may not go back, though. There have to be better spots in... More

A great diner with good food. This breakfast came with our hotel and we felt that we had gotten a really good bonus. It"s fun to watch the cook and the staff from the counter. The food was good, fresh and tasty. Busy for breakfast.

If you want an excellent breakfast stop by Penny's Dinner and order Yuma Finest, you will not leave hungry. Lots of items on the menu for all.
