“Cute 50's style diner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

In a town where the motels leave much to be desired, internet was awful, and scenery was blah, this was a cute diner. Breakfast was fine, tho I wish they could have had "cream" instead of milk for the coffee, and real butter instead of that soft fake margarine.

“EXCELLENT food and a trip back in time!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2011

Well I am just going to be short and to the point. If you LOVE a 1950s ambience and EXCELLENT food and friendly service you need to eat here. I highly recommend Penny's Diner. I was staying across the street at the Bel Air Motel and walked over here. Well worth it.

“A typical greasy spoon with a vintage flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2010

We went to Penny's because it's basically the only restaurant that was open in Vaughn . The atmosphere was charming, the food was good and the location was perfect, being right off the highway. The service was friendly and quick! Would go again.
