Easy access right off of 80, we stopped in for breakfast/lunch and enjoyed every bite. My wife had the traditional eggs, bacon, hash browns, etc. while I ordered the BLT and Fries. Waitress was very nice, and the food was exactly what a diner lover would expect. Great pick!

Thoroughly enjoyed a good burger and club sandwich after a ball game. Served by people who genuinely seemed happy we'd stopped and who enjoyed working together.

Do not eat here. Even though we received a free breakfast from Oak Tree Inn (which by the way they do not offer any more), the food we were served was lousy. The place including the grill is filthy. The servers are less than friendly. The cook used her bare hands to handle all food, including bacon, eggs, bread... The... More

My family and are not much for sandwich people. We didn't think it was near as good as all the reviews made it sound. The burgers were so over cooked they were dry. The Philly was good and the fried mushrooms were frozen in the middle.

This is a great diner. The menu is enhanced with Bison burgers, but it has the the usual diner fare ... just nicely done. Definitely worth seeking it out.

Great little place just off the interstate. Huge portions! Just a fun place to go when you've been on the road awhile.

Enjoyed the usual diner fare and the repartee of the waitresses in a setting that reminded me of the 40's and 50's. Food was good and quick.

We have stopped at Penny's several times when driving across Nebraska. It's a wonderful find. They have great food, and even better shakes! It's a nice local business.

This diner has a small but ideal menu. Classic diner fare made perfectly. We had basted eggs which are a hybrid of fried and poached and the most fantastic chicken friend steak. The crust crispy and the meat soft enough to cut with the fork. The staff were friendly and lovely. A great place for food that is made to... More
