Really cool place. Great 50's style atmosphere. We loved the food! James was courteous and quick to take care of us. Our were on our way back to Seattle after working in the sacramento area and took a chance on Penny's diner after seeing the sign on the highway. My crew (4 of us) enjoyed it. We were not disappointed!
The Big Scramble was awesome! Thx a ton James!!!

Frozen and deep fried. This may be a great place to get a ice cream milk shake but the dinner we had was nothing to look forward. If nothing else is open and you are really hungry ... give it a try.

Dear Guest,

We are sorry you were under the impression that we used frozen foods. We take pride in our fresh food. Maybe you saw an item that we prepped or preportioned earlier in the shift pulled from the cooler or refrigerator. Here at Penny’s Diner we offer 100% Angus Beef hand patty burgers, boardwalk style hot dogs, taco shop style 3 Ib. burritos, and fresh green salads. All of our soups, biscuits, meatloaf, breakfasts and sauces are made here on site. We even cut our fries from fresh potatoes! We cook everything to order fresh in front of our customers. We hope you will come back and watch as we cook your homemade meal.

Basic diner food with nothing to write home about. We were driving through on our way to Portland and needed a quick dinner before stopping for the night.

My son recently moved to this area, so we came up to visit for a few nights and stayed at the adjacent hotel. We had lunch one day -- I had a really good BLT on toasted marble rye, and my wife had their Club Sandwich, which adds roast beef to the standard mix. The fries were freshly cooked, and James the server/cook was very friendly.

The next day we had the standard breakfast. The bacon was crispy, the hash browns were quite good, and the sourdough toast was fresh. I missed out some desired coffee refills, but overall it was pretty good, actually.
