Big burgers with everything on them, food was great. Small place but clean. service was ok. not much seating so don't take a big party there. Cost $50 for 3 of us, one had the Bison burger which cost a little more.

The atmosphere is a throwback to the diners of old: aluminum "train car" appearance with dining at booths and counter. Everything is made right in front of you so you can watch the process unfold. Very good portions and everything we had on two visits...More

Not the genuine thing, but a good imitation of it. Had one breakfast of good quality at reasonable price.

Some of the best biscuits and gravy ever, light and tasty. The “pick three” breakfast is fast, a lighter meal for only $3.50.

If you like the diner experience, which I do, this is one of the larger, more modern ones. Our issue is that we hit the shift change at 10:00 p.m. Just one person on duty and the place was full. We waited too long for...More

I am not able to answer your question, as I stayed at the Fairfield Inn in North Platte. I believe if any hotel offers free breakfast at Penny's Diner it might be the one right next to it (Oak Tree Inn?).
