We were here at 11:15 am so the noon rush hadn't quite started yet. I have never seen a Diner have food ready so fast! I have literally waited much longer at McDonalds. Another good thing is the prices. They have this whole list of cheap sides and you can really fill out a meal. It's full of locals, so... More

Good food just like small town cafe's. Nothing fancy just good food. Not a lot of parking and they only take cash. Locals eat here all the time.

We stopped in North Platte because it is a nice day's drive on the way to ski in Colorado. Someone suggested that we try Merricks Ranch House in "downtown" North Platte. As my title suggests, there are lots of chain restaurants to choose from in town and this is a local place. Back of the menu says they have been... More

We had a family dinner after a funeral for 34 people service was awesome, fast and food good. We have eaten here many times over years but they really stepped it up when we needed them.

This is our "go to" dinner location in North Platte. We always stop her on our trips to and from the West. It is only a few blocks from the America's Best Value hotel where we stay. Nothing fancy, just a great family operated restaurant. The Breaded Veal is excellent. Also love their Fried Chicken. Large portions with good side... More

Traveling through North Platte last week I looked some local ma and pa joints to hit up for lunch. I'm that kind of guy. Though it was not close to the interstate, it was worth the trek going into town for. I hit the place around 2:00 p.m. and there were just a couple of older gentlemen in cowboy hats... More
