Step back to the 50's for the moment. Yes these type of eatery's is in the past except for those that like to relive the good old days. Ukiah is a city down the hill from our hometown of Kelseyville. Nice to make trips from our lake to take a brake maybe once a month. We have a small handful... More

Yes it had been a while since I ate here. During my first visit (maybe 3 years ago), I loved the counter service and the décor but the service was poor and the food was nothing special. I drove by it 100s of times after that first visit and never went back until last week. WHAT A TURN AROUND. Great... More

I love this place. It is always consistent and delicious. This is a mom and pop burger shop with a great classic feel. The store is clean, the staff are friendly, and the food hits the spot just right. Looking for a great burger with a fun 1960 theme, then come here.

The burgers range from $8 to $12 and are very good. Service was good, the milkshakes worth the stop. This place emulates a 50s drive in, with the decor and menu.

The sign caught my attention, but once you are in there it's like going back in time. The décor is done tastefully and ingeniously. The staff is great and make you feel so welcome right when you step in the door. Before you sit down to eat, take a look around and all the great memorabilia. The burgers where wonderful,... More

We gave it a shot since it was next to our hotel. We waited for a while without being served then left. The prices where high anyways.

The food was good, but they are completely lacking the skill to make a decent chocolate malt. They have the diner kitsch down pat, and the menu is extensive but there are just a few rough edges. Oh, and in case you are wondering if the fried Twinkies are worth the calories, they are so not.

A tower of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream topped with clouds of whipped cream! Great hamburgers and hot dogs too.

My girlfriend and I are driving Sacramento to Seattle for a mini coastal road trip and this was the spot we chose for dinner because of the Yelp reviews. I had the B-52 sandwich and I loved it. I hope we find ourselves in this little town again sometime so we can revisit :)

The food was surprisingly good, with a couple of exceptions. The Sandwiches were tasty and the fries and onion rings (and garlic fries) were all done perfectly. The chili burger seemed to use canned chili which was OK but a bit of a disappointment. Milk Shake was done right. Serving sizes were good. Service was satisfactory. The diner is kind... More
