I liked this place. It has a great atmosphere, good service, the 1950s diner feel is fun and the staff being on roller skates gives it an added novelty value. The hot dog was surprisingly juicy and full of flavour, the chips weren't anything to...More

Cute atmosphere, roller skating waitress a bit of fun but I would never go back. Food was slow to come out even when very few people were in the restaurant. The chilli dog was pretty average. Hotdog skin was so tough I could hardly cut...More

If you want delicious American hot dogs, this is the place to go. I am not a huge fan of their burgers but my friends love them.

The Hubcap Burger was very tasty. The curly fries were also very nice. Staff were attentive to me. You can get combo meals there which is good.

Really enjoyed the 50's diner theme here, not too noisy and tasty food. The service was good, although the food was slow to arrive. The menu is limited, but it had all the expected diner items!

We went here for a Tuesday night catch up with family. Soda Rock has a limited menu based on the old school American diner, as is the decor. Great gimmick as staff wear roller skates and perform a 50s style dance, unique and fun. Not...More
