Owner Don always has a way of making everyone feel special and good! The place is always a hive of activity and the staff always manage to be super happy and friendly. They are a well trained bunch who will steer you for menu choices as well as there is an extensive menu to choose from. But whatever you decide... More

While antiquing in layfayette nj we were told about this place. We had just bought a vintage car hop tray and the owner of the store said that we were very near to a place that still does that. We did not go that day because when we are in that area we always eat somewhere else. One day we... More

Having to choose between two great spots to eat is a good dilemma to have, John! We're glad you found us while you were visiting Lafayette. Next time you want that '50s feel, this is your spot! Thanks for being a customer, Don Hall, Owner More

Stopped here for the first time on our way up to Woodloch in Hawley, PA! There were four os us and I believe we all had some sort of burger. All lunches were awesome, as were the sides, and Chatterbox has a wonderful, friendly staff. The ice cream looked great, so on the way home from Woodloch, we stopped here... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in here on a Monday afternoon on our way back to South Jersey from a weekend hiking in NY. We just happened across it and I'm so glad we did! The 1st thing that struck me was very friendly, professional, accomodating staff. 2nd thing that impressed me, coming off a long drive, was the cleanliness... More

Stopped for lunch and ordered a sombrero burger and side of potato salad. The order arrived quickly. The burger was very tasty and the potato salad deserves 5 stars. Wierd to focus on a side dish? If you're used to a shot glass sized portion in a paper cup you'll be surprised. The potato salad was presented in a small... More

So after a long day tubbing we stopped by. Was quite busy but the wait wasn't to bad. They have plenty of things to choose from. Shakes were good. My veggie burger was good. Several sides to choose from with burger. Saw little kids with cute little car they put their meals in. Very cool atmosphere

We recently moved to the area and were very excited to try this place!

I'm disappointed too, Slarrow! While it can get busy around here, waiting an hour for your burgers should never be the case. I'll have to check back in with the staff and see what happened when you came in. I can assure you this isn't typical of us -- it sounds like you may have caught us at an off... More

The food here is really good. When my family and I arrived here, there wasn't a wait. The restaurant is in a circle shape. The Batmobile being front and center of the place was neat. On the wall are movie posters from the 1950's. The menu is also 50's themed which I thought was neat. Very nice people and clean... More
