Penny’s Diner is located right off of I-80 at Exit 177. Upon entering we found a fun restaurant that took us right to the 1950’s!

  1. Thanks for recommending this place! I fell in love with Nebraska (who knew that was possible?) on my recent road trip and plan to spend a couple of days there next time. I love Fort Cody and wondered about good restaurants in the area, this sounds like a must visit. Oh and as for my favorite diners, I love Cafe 50s in Los Angeles, CA. They don’t have a cool building but the food is great and they have an amazing collection of vintage movie posters and magazine ads on the walls.
