The food was average. My blt was fair. The bacon had obviously been cooked a while and the toast was slightly burned. My husbands philly cheese steak needed more meat and more veggies. The onion rings were obviously frozen and were cooked in old grease but tasty anyway. The overall restaurant needs a good cleaning. There were flies everywhere. Even... More

We were passing through on I-35 and stopped by after reading good reviews. We ordered the appetizer sampler which had onion rings, fried mushrooms, fried cheese and chicken strips. This was a great appetizer, the mushrooms were excellent. We ordered burgers and they were very good. I ordered the club and it was average. Tater tots and fries were hot... More

Cool old style chrome diner but everything is newer. Open all night for the late night munchies. Or early breakfast. You can sit at the counter and watch the cook making your meal. Or have a booth by the window. Good food and friendly service. Not to far off the interstate for travelers. Enjoy your meal.

This place is fun and brings back some wonderful old memories from the the 50's and 60's. Good food and good service. Take a break from the turnpike and go have lunch. Penny's is probably a mile to the west. Burgers, shakes, pie and other lunch specials. All good. Would I return to Penny's? Count on it the next time... More

I am a local customer but the last two times I tried to give this establishment my patronage were horrible experiences. My last visit found me waiting almost an hour for a simple sandwich which was inedible when finally delivered, then I found out later I was overcharged!! The time before that I was served pancakes that were actually batter... More

Great food, awesome decorations, perfect service. This is an old time diner with excellent food. If you have AT&T cellular service, the shiny metal on the outside of the diner stops your cell signal, but the free Wi-Fi makes it ok!

I got a breakfast coupon from the Oak Tree Motel. I chose the french toast with sausage. I walked in before 5 am. My server and the cook were both friendly. The coffee was very good. The french toast was pretty middle of the road. The sausage patties tasted good, but was not a solid piece of meat. I felt... More

There are sooo may bugs flying and crawling on and around you and your food that it is hard to even try enjoy your meal. Time to write this place off. Not to mention the service.
