Took my Mrs here for lunch and she was blown away by the vibe. That's not the full story though as the burgers are great and excellent value.

Nice place where for a second you actually think you are in the fifties. Every detail is right. We had the cheesecake and a waffle including a soda. We enjoyed it.

After reading some good reviews I thought I would visit. I ordered the ribs and a milkshake. The ribs were smoothed in BBQ sauce but didn't disguise the fact that the meat was lukewarm- perhaps I should have gone for the burger instead! It's a nice environment to be as I was on my own but I won't be visiting again as disappointed with the meal.

The fifties. There's a lot to say about this restaurant. First of all, the whole concept is well done. It really looks like an American diner. However, the food is not so good. Particularly the burgers. They are not as tasty as they should be. The desserts are nice.
The employees were not so friendly. Even when I booked a table it looked like I was calling the wrong number!

I can appreciate what they have done with this place. This is no easy effort as it's certainly not the norm for the area.

The food is pretty good. There are a couple I frequent back in L.A./U.S.

Where they stop short is the specialty drinks - Float and Milkshakes. They aren't cheap either. The first time I didn't say anything. The second time, I did.

Unfortunately, their response was not professional with the "That's how we do it". Fair enough. Why go through the trouble of all of that decor, menu, attire and food...to come short with the pure americana.
