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.

The diner is very clean. The inside decor is like the 50's. We had their homemade chicken noodle soup which is as good as what I make. EXCELLENT. I also had a grilled cheese sandwich. Just cheddar cheese on white bread cooked on the grill. It was delicious. We eat at the high end restaurants on a frequent basis, but... More

This classic diner has something for everyone. Being open 24 hrs. means that there is always something good on the menu. It is small, however, the service is good, the staff are friendly and the food is served very,very quickly. There is nothing fancy here, but, if you wish to taste the food of a by gone era, Penny's the... More
