There wasn't anywhere open after 10pm, so we had to go to Penny's. It was food, but that's about it. The service was slow and the food was not very good. But if you are hungry, you gotta do what you gotta do :-)

Good home cooking - nothing fancy, but good food. Great place to relax over a cup of coffee after a busy day.

Great chicken fried. Menu is what you would expect from an old school diner. You can't miss it; right hand side of the road coming from the east. Looks like the old school silver diners.

The cooks would rather chat amongst themselves. The food would rather be somewhere else too. But, when you are the only kitchen open on Thanksgiving Day - i guess it's okay to serve the same greasy greasy food 24/7-365.

We stopped here on our way from Big Bend NP to Carlsbad after weathering a monster storm tent camping in Chisos Basin. Got a great cup of coffee, a top notch breakfast and entertainment from a happy a.m. crew. Our server Stephanie was a riot!
