Penny's Diner, Low Moor VA

pennys_dinerI finally found something to post for the diner fans on this site. Diners of the classic type are relatively rare in the South, at least when compared to the Northeast. This one is called Penny's Diner and may be found in Low Moor, Virginia, between Covington and Clifton Forge. A correspondent told me that it's a Starlite diner, built in Florida and trucked to the site.

At some replica or retro diners, particularly in urban areas, the prices are out of sight and the menu contains a lot of exotic, non-diner selections. Penny's is not like that. I had a good lunch there.
