Camped nearby and stopped in for breakfast on our way to Boulder. Service great. Our booth had been cleaned - even the seat had been wiped down! The biscuits and great were fabulous and eggs done just right. My husband had hash browns, eggs and bacon. Another clean plate club member. We will stop by here again! Maybe to try... More

Had dinner here one night when we stayed in North Platte. It's right off the interstate and was close to our hotel (and many others). Service was very good. Our kids each wanted a shake, and while some places would've just gone ahead and let us order them, our waitress was kind enough to give us a heads up that... More

I have celiac disease and they took all the necessary precautions to prepare my food separately for me and without complaining. They rock!! Food was delicious. Nothing like a great breakfast to start our vacation .

Based on other reviews we went to Penny's for lunch. Place was busy so that's always a good sign we thought. My husband ordered a burger and what a greasy mess!!! It took 2 napkins to sop up the grease off the burger before he even tried to eat it. Fries ok he said. I had a chef salad and... More

This is a little diner that is open 24 hours, but that chef is amazing! We liked the buffalo burger and patty melt so much that we came back on our way back through town a couple days later. If you order a side salad, get it to split in half cause it is huge, and all of it was... More

We had a "top ten" burger at Penny's and we've had many a burger at many an advertised great burger joint. This may actually qualify as a top THREE burger. The diner had great service, you could watch your meal being prepared and listen to oldies 50 music peppered with some new selections. Fun place - good food - decent... More

Service was slow and the food was just average. I liked that it was included with the rooms at Oak Tree Inn

Our room at the Oak Tree Inn included 2 meal vouchers for breakfast at Penny's Diner. We were surprised by the big breakfasts (2 eggs, hash browns, ham, toast and coffee) that were provided for us with the vouchers. The food was tasty. We were impressed by the quick and friendly service of our waitress, Chris. I can see why... More
