I had a decent breakfast passing through on my way to Lincoln. The place wasn't super clean, definitely stereotypical diner feel. No breakfast pastries like cinnamon rolls which was a bummer. Staff was very friendly but otherwise I wasn't impressed. I wouldn't come back for breakfast if passing through.

Read the reviews and decided to pull in. We were not disappointed. Server was friedly and made the BEST milkshake! 24/7 breakfast was more than filling. Diner was small but comfortable and inviting. Would go back again.

We were staying in the RV park next door to Penny's Diner and walked over to start with out of convenience. We were totally pleased with the food and loved the service. We were so happy with everything that we went back the next morning for breakfast! Their 3 egg omelet was great and the pancake I ordered with it... More

After a long day of driving we checked in at the Hampton Inn we were happy to find a restaurant within walking distance. Buffalo burgers and philly cheese steak did not disappoint. The atmosphere was cute and the servers were friendly and quick. But the best part was hand dipped shakes for dessert. Highly recommend for low fuss, good food... More

I was a little skeptical walking in, as the place is very small and looking at the menu, the prices seemed a little high. But, the food was great! We had our food within 10 minutes of ordering and we were not disappointed.

Breakfast wasn't very satisfactory. Eggs undercooked, bacon cold, gravy lukewarm. Diner clean and attractive.

Ate at Penny's Diner when we discovered that everywhere else in North Platte packs it in at around 9pm, even on a Saturday. Not bad food, your normal diner food. Nothing to right home about. But clean, consistent, and good service. The menu isn't big and if you're a vegetarian of any sort your options will be limited. But would... More

Clean, friendly, wonderful aromas from the grill, fair prices and amazing burgers/fries. We ordered ours to go so we could get back on I-80 fast and within 2 miles we were both saying things like, "This burger is huge and delicious; the fries are some of the best we've had in a long time."

Small diner. There are booths and chair counter seating. You can watch the cooks. Prices are reasonable. Breakfast was so much we split it at no extra cost. It's open 24 hours a day. Not for Health conscious people.

Place was clean, Waitress was friendly. Food was very good, had ribeye sandwich and chicken fried steak. Got there a little after 7pm, had a few empty tables and stools. It did take longer then expected to get our food though.

Thank Bruce-and G
