Fun place right along the interstate

Cute little diner right along the interstate. I had a patty melt that was excellent. The rest of my family liked their meals as well.

We had stayed in the hotel next door and part of the room price was free breakfast here. The food was good. The service was good also. Staff was friendly.

The diner was small and we had to sit at a table instead of a booth or use a stool. The menu was limited but okay. The shakes were huge and delicious. The buffalo meat was tasty. The waitress was friendly and accommodating. The food was prepared quickly. I loved the music from the 50s and 60s. Once was enough... More

We came across this by accident when driving back to Baton Rouge and it looked interesting. We were not disappointed as it delivered the 50's experience. We had the roast beef open sandwich and it was delicious. Very clean bathrooms and generally inside, lots of parking right out front. I'll definitely go here again when in the area.

I secretly enjoy the "hole in the wall" establishments. Sometimes I'm truly impressed and other times, not so much. The thought of watching the staff prepare your food while you sit in your old fashioned booth is appealing to me. This time I felt as if we were intruding on an odd staff interaction. It was uncomfortable. The food was... More

Dropped in while driving from Omaha to Estes Park, based on TripAdvisor reviews. Stopped right at lunchtime and the place was busy, but a booth was being cleaned as we walked in so were seated without delay. Opted for breakfast and Penny's delivered in style. We watched the cook prepare our meals on the flattop, which he then delivered with... More

I have never before been to a diner that does not supply cream for coffee. The only stuff from cows is 1% milk. (Must be due to an over abundance of steers in Nebraska?) Of course, the ubiquitous coffemate "creamer" crap is at every table. Note: you get eye rolls from the waitressing crew behind your back if you ask... More

Stayed at the hotel and had free breakfast but the service was great. The biscuits and gravy has no sausage, which I expected, but the food was good and filling.
