I wasn't sure I would like this place. I was in the mood for hotdogs. To my surprise, their hotdogs are delicious. It's a great name too because all the staff is happy and friendly. Worth trying out! They offer a lot of different foods!

Stopped at this diner for lunch and we were not disappointed. Our sandwiches were freshly prepared, hot and delicious. The dining room was decorated with 60's and 70's themed decor. We'll return.

Not a very good restaurant the 50s theme is nothing more than a few movie posters on the wall and the food is very generic something I can grab from the grocery store and make nothing unique.

Nice lunch yesterday, nice clean place, friendly staff, very good steak and cheese sandwich. Daily menu written on big marker board looked interesting. Want to go back and try white beans and cornbread.

Had a great steak sandwich during a quiet after-lunch hour rush. Lots of atmosphere, local flavor and personality

The restaurant is decorated in a 50s theme with lots of movie posters and photos. The menu is full of comfort food with plenty of choices. The service is excellent!!
