Don't be fooled by looks.....

There is no way to leave here still hungry... They have great food, quality meats and big plates full of food. You are sitting in a old fashion rail car turned into a diner. You've got oldies playing in the background and friendly servers to help serve.

This is the usual breakfast, lunch and dinner type place with a short order chef on staff to keep the wait time low. The restraunt itself is a bit small with only a few tables, hotel guests in the area often get meals to go I'm told. The food is well prepared in my experiences and we've always had a... More

I used to go to the diner a lot and knew lot of staff. I enjoyed it was always noisy from huge fans neded to take out grill odors. Now the grill is so black and smells of grease that I don't like going there anymore. Went with a friend last week and not improved a bit.

The burgers (beef & buffalo) and French fries were fantastic! The strawberry rhubarb pie a la mode was terrific. French toast and bacon was perfect. The waitresses were friendly, efficient, attentive and polite. Very clean place! Good location right off I-80 next to Whiskey Creek restaurant.

Home cooked foods, service with a smile; cleanliness, what more could we possibly ask for? We both would recommend this restaurant to anyone that is looking for above referenced foods.

Ok, I'm a sucker for the stainless steel diners. We were on another cross country trip and decided to stop in North Platte for lunch. We'd decided on Applebees and saw the diner from the exit as we headed off I-80. Quick confab and we headed for the diner. The menu is simple but what you'd expect - shakes, burgers,... More
