A delightful diner nestled in beautiful surroundings.

A classic diner experience, with car seat booths. Collectibles adorn the walls, and the food is simple but wholesome! A very pleasant change from the fast food!

The food is great and there is a variety of choices on the menu. The milkshakes are yummy and large! Eat there anytime but the best discount prices are offered on your birthday!

The food was nothing special but the service was very good. The portions were very large, we could have shared a plate but didn't. Husband had the chicken fried steak and said it was okay but nothing outstanding. Okay for a quick meal.

We had a 5 am flight from Nashville to Denver and then drove to Canon City to stay the night. We were all so tired that we did not want to go out to eat, so we searched from places that we could order and take out. The diner was only 30 seconds from our hotel. We did not have... More

Busy place, good comfort food and good service. A kind of 50's theme. Fun place and convenient location near the Royal Gorge Train Depot. Great milkshakes!

We stopped for a quick lunch and it did not disappoint! My hubby had a BLT and their famous chili. Awesome CHILI! They say it's grandma's recipe....we couldn't wheedle it out of them. I had a half club and white bean and ham soup. Both were good...I wished I had gotten the chili after I tasted hubby's. The sandwich was... More

Great food and atmosphere - reccomended for anyone visiting the area. The restautrant has several items from the 50s and you can imagine what it was like to eat in a diner back in the 50s.

We ate dinner here our first night in town. The restaurant was extremely busy, so the food was a little slow in coming out as they only had one cook working. However, it was definitely worth the wait. The food was excellent, and the waitress was a really sweet young lady.
