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.

The atmosphere is 50ish with old chrome tables, photos of old cars and Elvis displays. The menu has lots of home cookin choices. The malts are wonderful.

We always stop here for breakfast after camping at Royal Gorge. We have a pretty decent sized group and they are very accommodating with our orders, splitting checks, finding seating, etc.

We had spent the day on the Arkansas River in the Royal Gorge area near Canon City CO white water rafting and were tired, hungry and a little chilly from the cold water. Noticed this place and decided to try it. Wonderful choice. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was really really good and the coconut ream pie... More
