Good diner food. Can't go wrong with a burger or breakfast. The diner has 1950's flair. Good for families or a quick bite. The food is consistently good. The menu has a good selection for everyone. Prices are fair and service is good.

The food was average. The service was average. The place was decorated in 1950s style and photos of hundreds of local street rods and restored cars line the wall.

Good food, great service, reasonably priced, 50's style diner. Attached to a gas station but don't let that scare you.

Not much to say. Fifties decor made it interesting. The food was standard, good and not overly priced. Overall a good experience.

From other reviews I thought this might be a fun experience. Food was very bad. Better off going to a chain pancake house.
