Had high hopes based upon other reviews, but was disappointed about the quality of the food and bathrooms were not up to standards. Food took a long time even at 7pm on a weekday. Waitress said it was the cooks first day so can understand but my food order side was not correct but they did reduce the bill. Hope... More

The food was good. Had a bacon cheeseburger and my son and I shared a chocolate milkshake which was really good. The service was good.

Average food. Wait staff not friendly. Bathrooms, well really the whole place, was dirty. It sounded like the staff was throwing dishes around. It was very noisy and not hospitable. I agree with the other reviewer who said there was no way this was the best restaurant in North Platte. Will not stop there on the way home.

On the way to Missouri we spent the night in North Platte and ate a fantastic mexican dinner at a place called Margheritas. On the way home we stopped at Pennys Diner and got a grouchy server a over cooked burger and a unswept floor! I want to come back to North Platte. It seems like a cool town but... More

We were trying to get to Ogallala for lunch but time and hunger didn't let us get that far. We found this on Trip Advisor and it was right off the interstate. We both ordered the buffalo burger and salad. We were expecting a small side salad but were surprised when our order came at how fresh the salad was.... More

Stopped in for supper on the way through town and sounded like fun. It was cute! Had a philly cheesesteak and a chocolate shake and both were very tasty! Not giving 5 stars because there was quite a bit of trash on the floor under the table. Giving them the benefit of the doubt that they had a busy supper... More
