I eat here occasionally. The food is fine but nothing to write home about. It is basically a burger and sandwich joint.I have never had a bad meal and the waitress is always been nice to me. If you're a food snob don't bother with the place but if you want a decent meal at a decent price this would... More

We went there a year ago on our way back from Lake Havasu. As we remembered then the food was so good and service was really great. We decided to take a road trip today and go eat some of the great food. Not! The waitress was so cold and rude. We ordered the same thing as last year and... More

I think a lot of people come in here to use the bathroom since there is not much else in the area during the long drive to Vegas. In fact so did we except as soon as there is any food around my kids decide they are starving so we relented and decided to go for a bite. Service was... More

Nice retro decor. Food was okay but service was less than attentive. We were alone in the restaurant and had to wait long time between server visits. Disappointing.

I didn't get to try the food, because after 20 minutes and the server not even making contact with me, I paid for the tea that the person cleaning tables got for me and went to denny's. I won't be going back to this place anytime soon.

This place was perfect! Half-way back from Las Vegas to San Diego. Had scrambled eggs and toast. It hit the spot! Arrived 'bout 8 pm on March 2nd, 2012. Oscar night, if I remember correctly... and they were showing it on their tv. Great food and great service. Lots of fun! don't miss it. Much better than a chain restaurant.

Went for breakfast, had the french toast. The price was very fair especially for the amount of food you get. Everything tasted great and was cooked just right. The waitresses were very friendly. Just wish they would have coke in the fountain instead of Pepsi. When you have the place decked out in Coke colors with coke signs, you kinda... More

I really wanted to like this place. I love diners- notable ones like the Galaxy in Flagstaff and Mel's in Hollywood- for their funky nostalgia and atmosphere. This one has a neat building and all the kitsch but the waitress was very brusque. I really wanted to like the place but the service pretty much wrecked it. The bathroom was... More
