My family of five ate here twice during our 2-day stay in Alpine, which should tell you how well we liked it! The first time was for lunch, and a few of us got breakfast while others got burgers. All the food was great, but...More

My wife, brother-in-law and sister-in-law arrived in Alpine, TX on Thanksgiving Day 2017 in the early afternoon. Everything in town was closed, even McDonald's and Dairy Queen. The only shot we had was the Holland Hotel but we found out we were too late. The...More

Penny's diner is an old style Denny's diner - resembles a railroad car. There's no large lit sign to help you locate it. We drove right by using phone's GPS. Located just in front of motel. Service was good. Served in reasonable time. Wife ordered...More
