Great Cheap Eats – For Great Cheap Food Nothing Beats Penny's.
Stay away from the soups & stick to the noodles.
Pad Se & Lad Nar are simply awesome. Service is good & prices can't be beat.
Mushy Rice – for the last few visits to Penny's the rice has been very mushy. I think they are either keeping it longer or purchasing cheap rice.
Not very authentic – I searched Citysearch.com to look for fun places to eat, and tried out Penny's because it received such great reviews. But I was highly disappointed. The food was not very good, everything tasted slightly sweet or otherwise bland. I ordered the Rad Nha with chicken (sp.) The only good thing was the dessert, which I'm sure they did not make.
9.5 – My fave Thai restaurant in the city, I get take-out from there at least once a week!!! Definitely the best value!!!
Penny's From Heaven – Penny's could be one of the best restaurants in Chicago. I go there at least once a week. The Sheffield/Roscoe location is the best. Great atmosphere, awesome food. Pepper Beef, Sliced Chicken and Pad Thai are a sure bet! I wish I lived next door!
Simple but Good – I really enjoy this place. YOu might have to wait a long time to get seated although it is worth the wait. It is good food, good service, and a good neighborhood place. It is nothing fancy but a great place to get a large portion of thai food. Can't beat it.
Penny's remains at the top for Thai – Penny's is the place for casual dining on a cheap budget. The portions are big enough to make two meals out of your entree. Their Hot Pepper Noodle remains the best Ive found in Chicago! I often get Pennys to go with little waitbeats fast food any day!
