Good food, atmosphere and service!

We stopped here on our way down to Monterey. The burgers were delicious and fresh. The service was great. I would recommend this place for a nice quick meal with a nostalgic atmosphere.

This is obviously an "institution" in Los Gatos, but today's lunch was a real disappointment. Fish and chips sounded good, and it all started well with a lovely small salad that came with the order. But when the HEAVILY breaded fish, and dull french fries arrived, it was a real disappointment. Even the waitress acknowledged that the breading on the... More

This Los Gatos diner is fabulously decorated with classic pictures of celebrities, cool cars, "45" records, old signs and posters among neon lights, red paint and chrome. Great food, big portions, Los Gatos price. I have dined here over a dozen times and the burgers, breakfast, French dip... More

The food and service are very good. And they have their own parking lot; a great advantage for downtown Los Gatos.

Always exceptional, friendly service by lovely waitstaff! Outstanding menu with upscale and elevated diner classics. Love the Chicken Fried Steak Benedict or the yummy-meaty Hashbrown Benedict. Also try the Apricot French Toast! Good lunch Sammies too.

Typical American diner look. The Ruben sandwich - forget it. Chewy and really not a Ruben. Coffee is so so. Service could be better. So unless you are really hungry - Yes, but.....
