quick and easy and burgers were tasty and well done. Fries were average. Service was OK but not overly attentive. KInd of a fun concept of drive in, but for the money I think I'd rather go to Wendy's across the street and sit in the AC.

You can go here for lunch and see everybody from a plumber to a judge! The burgers are awesome and the wait staff has been there for years and are great. It's a typical 1950s drive in type place with stools and it opens to 301.

Seems like BJ's and Sam's Club frozen food served at ridiculous prices. I liked nothing. Will not go back.

Stopped here for lunch with the family. This place has a great authentic atmosphere, the staff and service was great and I opted for the Rueben on the specials board which was one of the best I've had. Yes the menu is fairly limited, but the food is excellent and very good value for money. Can't wait to return.

Food was okay, prices were good. I could see how some people might like this place...just be prepared to order a burger and get a side of fries/onion rings. There's not much more to this menu.

Nice place, authentic and original as it can be. Very good burgers, you feel like you are back in the 50s. Just the ugly Japanse cars outside do not match.

We went here before a spring training game and so glad we did. We arrived before noon, which is smart, because the place does an amazing amount of business. Having said that, the staff is swift and efficient so the really is no waiting for a table in the covered open air dining area. The food is great! We had... More

Get the blackened fish sandwich with a chocolate shake. So tasty! Outdoor cafe 50th style . Casual and perfect end to an outdoor day.

Ya know, when I first dined here 40 years ago I thought it was a real trip in time to the 50's. Well, 40 years later, it still is that trip in time to the 50's. Just arriving at the diner gets your juices flowing. The menu is an expansive drive-in menu and if you would like something of a... More
