We were visiting Nebraska for a family gathering, so we stayed in North Platte for a couple of days before driving south. We had young grandsons to entertain, so North Platte offered a variety of interesting things to keep them occupied. We found ourselves at Penny's for lunch simply because it was close to the Go-Kart track. Although it doesn't... More

Cute little retro diner. Stopped in on Sunday am so it was busy. Just a short wait for a table. Really friendly and fast service. We both had the hash. Nice big portion and the taste was fantastic. Wishing I could go back today for breakfast. If you are in this area, penny's is the place!

Penny's is a good place for breakfast or lunch. The staff is friendly and the food comes quick. I had a good ham and cheese omelet there today. The hash browns are less greasy than most and crisp. The menu is very limited and there isn't a lot of seating. If you're looking for more than a good diner breakfast... More

We stayed at the Oak Tree Inn next door and our reservation came with vouchers to Penny's Diner. We went for breakfast and were completely satisfied. Food was excellent and the service was great. It's a little small but it's a tiny diner so that's to be expected. We will eat there again if we are back in North Platte.

Just tried to have breakfast at the diner - group of 6 - told to sit anywhere - found a table that was just being vacated - sat down, then told to move as another group who hadn't fully arrived yet was planning to move to that table - whole attitude was surly and unwelcoming - we took our business...

Quaint little diner, just off the interstate, that shares a parking lot with two Hotels. The booths were a little close to the table... for a mildly fat man. The food was quick, however my french toast was a touch on the burned side. 3 Egg Omlette was decent with good hashbrowns. Bacon was cooked right (not overly dark and... More

Very small diner, but food and service were excellent. Able to watch cook at work, which was very entertaining. Great place for any meal of the day!

My parents live in Nebraska and I'm in west virginia. On our latest trip out we went to north Platte with my two year old nephew and wanted to eat somewhere that wasn't a chain restaurant. We found this gem! The inside of the diner was really cool. The staff was friendly and the food was good! I had a... More

Just off the freeway and open 24 hours. Small place with friendly staff. Breakfast is your best bet for a good meal at a fair price. Lunch and dinner selections limited but well prepared and filling. Good place for a quick and simple meal.

Penny's Diner in North Platte Nebraska is adjacent to the Oak Tree Inn. If you are staying at the Oak Tree Inn you get $7.50 off any meal. So if there are two of you then you get $15 off. The food is cooked right there in front of you. You know it's fresh. If you don't want a cooked... More
