Vaughn is a town that has seen better days, and there are few opportunities for eating or staying for many miles. Thus Penny's Diner is a wonderful find: set up as a classic diner, it has a wide-ranging menu and is open 24 hours a day. It is worth scheduling your trip in order to stop here for a meal: I had one of the best Reubens I have had in years.

This restaurant had the usual Penny’s menu printed but we missed all the more interesting, local items that are written by the ceiling and our waitress didn’t mention them. They have burritos, taco salad, breakfast tacos and things you’d think of in New Mexico. We’d placed our order long enough before to change.

We had a burger and fish sandwich which were very ordinary. But there is not much around and the restaurant and rest rooms were clean, so it’s your best choice for the area. There is truck and RV parking too.

I had the fabulous Philly, my son had the chicken fried steak. My Philly cheesesteak was great. The chicken fried steak was really good. Stop in, you'll love it.

Ate dinner at Penny’s Diner, Vaughn NM last week. I had a club sandwich and tater tots. The club sandwich was very good. I was very impressed with the amount of tater tots on my plate...lots of tots!

The portions were very generous and prices were reasonable. If in Vaughn again...I will return.

This diner is located across from a truck stop and sits back a little from the main road. We almost missed it. We had a late breakfast of sausage, eggs, and pancakes. The service was good and so was the food. The diner is decorated with old Route 66 memorabilia. We had an enjoyable time and would stop here again.
