Here's my list of reasons to dine at Lucky Penny-- Food: a pile of fresh steamed mixed veggies on every dinner plate; always fresh salads; delicious soups; good selection of tasty, neatly presented entrees Atmosphere and service: clean; comfortable seating; friendliness (staff and customers); great sit-down service Convenience: centrally located; close to public transportation; plentiful free parking; open 24/7/365 Cost: all of the above at a very reasonable price Negative: wish they actually served those BBQ ribs they have on the menu, but alas....

The place is a classic. The food and prices are excellent for Diners. We make it a point to stop by after midnight with friends when we're in the city. The staff is great. Why can't other food establishments take a page from this place. The staff makes you feel like family. Looking forward to stopping by this weekend with a few friends. We love this place !

In a city like SF, it's remarkable that a place like Lucky Penny lives on. It's classic in every respect, almost as though it was designed. But that would be Lori's Diner, not Lucky Penny. The ladies who run the place late night are exceptional. Sit at the counter.

Had dinner here tonight. If I weren't so cheap, I'd eat here every night. You see all kinds of people there, all ages, races, social classes, sexes, levels of happiness. Love the ambiance. A little bit dirty and old. Authentic diner. Reminds me of the buffets we went to in LV as a kid. Vinyl booths and stools. Plain stainless steel utensils. Great food. Tonight I had the country-fried (or chicken-fried) steak, smothered w/ gravy. Two eggs over easy. Three buttermilk pancakes. Real butter. Real maple syrup. And a glass of milk. Whole milk. Decadent, all of it. $10. Perfectly cooked. CNN was on w/ Larry King. I talked w/ the elderly couple in the next booth about their health, Cole Porter, theology, and Obama. The nicest waitress. Hard-working busboy.
