This is one of the top rated restaurants in North Platte and for a dine it is excellent. You food is cooked fresh on the grill, but this is a diner, if you can't grill or deep fry it, it won't be on the menu. My son had a great burger and I had the breakfast burrito -- they serve... More

Server was funny and the food was good! Small building so don't plan on large groups for here. We had a burger and crispy chicken.

I stopped in here on my way east and saw it had a good rating for breakfast. After stopping in and enjoying the breakfast I see why it's well rated. There is nothing fancy about the place other than it's classic dinner look but the food is good, the staff are friendly, and I'd go back again. If you are... More

Had told my wife about seeing Penny's Diner but had never stopped there before. Stayed next door at the Oak Tree motel so walked across the parking lot and had a late evening dinner that was excellent and beyond our expectations. Staff was friendly and concerned about our needs. Advise anyone traveling through the area to stop and enjoy the... More

We ate here while travelling to CO and stayed the night at a hotel next door. My daughter and I sat amidst local folks who obviously come often. The staff knew everyone, filled our coffee cups often, and chatted with all.The omelettes were great. We ate our left-overs for lunch and were provided with extra coffee for the road. I... More

Only place open after 10 pm and we hadn't eaten all day. You can watch them make your food which is a bad thing. I watched three people handle my bun, chicken filet, toppings of onion pickle lettuce with bare hands, no gloves, no tongs, no utensils. They just didn't appear clean and unfortunately after watching 6 hands touch my... More

We stopped at Penny's Diner after an overnight in North Platte with son, daughter-in-law, and two boys, ages 2 and 5. It is designed like the old railroad car style diners of the '50's, with counter, booths & table seating, a fun place to eat. Our waitress provided children's menus with crayons, was extremely gracious to meet our needs, including... More

We enjoyed supper here tonight. My wife had the daily special (Salisbury steak) and there was enough for two people. I had the All-American breakfast. Hash browns were crispy, sausage and eggs were cooked to perfection. Service was friendly. Loved the decor of the diner and the 50's and 60's music. Fun place to visit.

A simple exit away from La Quinta via frontage road (Halligan), this was easy to get to. I had the Philly Steak and my wife had a burger with cheddar cheese. Side of french fries completed the order. Very tasty. Not much we can add to what others have already said. Recommended.

Thank Morris-Madison
