    I only want to rank my homepage for my offline business. So city+service and its variants. However I feel that only sending links to the homepage might be a red flag to G00gle. Can you get a penalty by doing this? I really dont care to rank any other page (I have 80 pages on this sight, just using for content and authority.) Does this look natural or should I be making some deep links? My main concern is avoiding a penalty!

    You should be looking to target other pages too if you want the site to sustain long term, but most of all, make sure your anchor profile is natural. One of the easiest ways to get a penalty is by having a very obvious/shitty anchor profile.

    Check the top ranking sites in your targetted niche. Do they only have links to the homepage?

    No. This is going to get costly with only using high quality links. Should I send my own PBN links deep or is this a waste?

    The easiest way what I can suggest you would be run an ad in facebook if you think google will harm your offline business,easy and great way i must say.

    Pick 5 of your most important internal pages and build a small percentage of the links to them. Point the rest to the homepage.
