“What's not to love.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Okay this restaurant is seriously cool. I got an omelette for dinner and it was huge. I could have split it with my husband. The two women cooking and serving were just great and friendly. Don't miss this opportunity.

“Simple American comfort food”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This place is a blast from the past: very small silver-bullet diner with kitschy 50's aura & music. I've only eaten breakfast here & it's been good, tho not great or special in any way. It's cool to watch your food being cooked out front, & it's served with a smile to lots of locals, truckers, railroad workers & wanderers like me.

“Delivers what it promises”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We enjoyed a hot, well-prepared diner-style breakfast. My wife expected her choice for bread for a breakfast sandwich would be white or wheat. She got a choice of those, plus rye, sourdough, or English muffin. And when a nearby customer asked for Tobasco sauce, the waitress offered at least three or four kinds. Way better than a diner back in the '60s.

“best breakfast ever!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I know, hard to believe, but the breakfast I had at Penny's was the best that I can remember having in my 51 years! It was just a super-tasty combo of hash browns, eggs, bacon and jalapenos but...it was super-tasty! The wait staff were friendly and efficient. We didn't have a shake, but they looked amazing. And, they were attentive to my sons and my various allergies.

“Need to work on the customer service”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Great food. Barely adequate service. Only 2 folks working and it was a busy Sunday morning. Waitress was overworked and was sporting an attitude because of it. Hire more help folks and you have a winner of a diner!
