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

On contract here in Nebraska I have been missing the food and atmosphere of the Waffle House the southern travelers go to breakfast stop. I am glad to find a place on I80 to take the edge off the homesickness. Small and unimposing as the diner may be the staff makes you feel right at home and swept quickly into... More

Three ate here late morning - two had breakfast (available 24 hrs) and one had the foot-long chili-cheese dog. Dog was good. Breakfast skillet was pretty tasty (omitted the jalapenos). The All-American was also good - eggs scrambled flat-top style (on the flat-top, not whisked in a bowl), hash browns were ok - could have used a little more char... More

We stayed at the Oak Tree Inn where they gave us a complementary breakfast at Penny's Diner. The waitress was a bit sassy but fun to tease. The food was outstanding. We watched the chef make all the meals right in front of us. The prices on the menu were very reasonable. The atmosphere was right out of the 50's... More

First thing you notice when you walk in is the open kitchen exhaust fan roaring like a jet engine, the music blasting to be heard over it, and the employees yelling at eachother to be heard above it all. $18+ for a chicken sandwich, fries, pie and malt. The pie was a frozen Mrs. Smith variety, the breaded chicken out... More

The ham and cheese omelets are to die for and the skillets are just as amazing. If you love Waffle House you will find Penny's Diner very comparable.
