I needed to meet a friend near Yampa for work, and we decided to get lunch. I had the special of the day, a mushroom burger with grilled onions and onion rings. It was great. The grilled onions were perfect, and the onion rings were terrific. The best burger I've ever had? Nah - but definitely in the top 10 percent. Like all diners, especially small town diners, things can be pretty variable, but my meal and experience at Penny's was great.

Overpriced for quality of food. One of the cooks keeps his dog ( well behaved ) in the foyer. All food comes with some degree of grease included.

i drove up the wonderful scenic colorado river road on the way to yampa. i drove through the thriving metropolis of yampa and noticed penny's diner on the left. i thought id give it a try. i had the western burger with onion rings and bbq sauce. the burger was cooked on a brazier type grill. it gave it the most wonderful charbroiled taste ive ever had. they threw it on the griddle put the cheese on the top squirted water under the lid and steamed the cheese on it. the buns were buttered and toasted on the grill. this place is in the middle of nowhere. i cant emphasize how great the flavor of this burger. the people are so friendly. if you really want to find the best burger then head to panny's

was up hunting elk and fishing, I am small town, and this place is unbelievable, the waitress is the cook, the staff should get more praise, they are the ones doing this, food is good, and they stay very pleasant, in all my travels, I have never been to a diner like this, where they wait and cook, yea Mickeys in Downtown Minneapolis, and Davies Chuckwagon in Denver, but for a town of a hundred or so, this is a rare gem

On the road between Vail and Steamboat Springs. Yampa is small out of the way ranch community. Penny's is a 60's style dinner and we have breakfast there each trip. The portions are large and fresh.
