Breakfast is Great!

They have a daily breakfast special die $4.99 that has two eggs, toast, bacon, sausage or ham hash browns and baked beans. Can't beat it fir freak fast and especially the price. Service was excellent and I would definitely go to try lunch or dinner. My parents are regulars. Now I know why!

Large portions, good taste, great service, nice location. Fun decorations of photos of 50's stars. I would go again.

Had breakfast here. Heard it was good. Was okay. Portions were fine. Fast friendly service. There was a line up. Got through quickly. Ate and ran. Did sweat up a storm while eating. Warm day. Had air, but it just couldn't keep up to the heat.

I was curious as to why there were so many cars in the parking lot so I checked it out. The inside is sort of set up to be like a 50's diner but I've seen better. The wait staff were good and knowledgeable of the daily specials and the food was good. Still can't figure out why so many... More

50's is a great place to go when you want a casual dining experience. The portions are more than fair for the price and the food is like home cooking!

It's over rated. You can barely find a seat anywhere. Food is good though. Gives you a real 50s feeling.

Never ate there this trip, but have dined here quite often on other visits to Cambridge. Good portions/value for your money. Nice atmosphere and reasonable prices.
