Love the retro ambience and music. The food is as usual, lots of burgers and shakes and salads. Sadly, there is only 1 real breakfast choice after late morning. The servers were very courteous.

We went here for breakfast because we wanted to try a diner while doing our roadtrip. And we weren't disappointed. Even though we just ordered the normal stuff like waffles, bacon and scrambled eggs and beignets, it all tasted great. The place got a cool...More

Went in for 7 milkshakes only for kids, at 9ish. Suppose to be open until 10. The person working tonight, Friday October 13, said they were closed. Really? Lost business?

A decent spot for a quick bite. I had the hickory burger, which was decent. A bit greasy, but I was satisfied. French fries had no taste. Restaurant was filling up, but quiet. No background music, just the sounds of a cash register processing tabs.

We felt like we were in a Happy Days set. I had Huevas Rancheros and my daughter had biscuit with sausage. The service, food and price was excellent.

This diner is clean, fun, has a great menu that speaks back to the 1950s yet is nicely updated to include fish tacos and fresh tuna sandwiches. The shakes are served in the old fashioned malt glasses along with the leftovers in the silver mixing...More

A great place to grab a burger and a milkshake in a 1950s styled diner, great for couples and families. Complete with 1950s/1960s American cars on the forecourt, we felt like Danny and Sandy in Grease! Can definitely recommend the Hershey's chocolate and the salted...More
