We always try to stop here on our way from Sandpoint to Seattle, and love it every time. We especially enjoy bringing friends and family as they get such a kick out of the vintage decor old-time menu. Their burgers are great, fries are fantastic,...More

We found this cool, little diner while passing thru Ellensburg on our way to the Gorge. Lots of cool memorabilia inside. It was too windy for us to try out, but they have a small patio area behind the restaurant for outdoor seating. Great burgers,...More

We wanted some ice cream and stopped in at the diner. The inside is intriguing with lots of cool memorabilia. The ice cream was a let down. Apparently they only have vanilla soft serve. We wanted real ice cream so when our sundae and milkshake...More
