My wife and I saw a billboard on the interstate for this place on our way home from a weekend getaway and decided to check it out. It's about 4 miles off the interstate but was well worth the drive. The diner is on the square and is 50's themed. Both burgers that we ordered were excellent. They weren't the... More

Great burger and onion petals. Would return if they had a combo price. $13.00 for a burger, onion petal, and beverage just not affordable. Also why no free parking close by? Great service.

We ordered the lemon pepper wings for an appetizer. They were on the large side, but not tough or mealy, very tasty and served hot. Ordered the 2/3 lb Breakfast Burger with bacon and jalapeños, topped with a fried egg. Great flavor, not greasy, and served hot. This is our favorite place for American fare in Henry County.

I read a review and being a hamburger maniac had to immediately check this for myself. Location just off the square can present a problem finding a space but luck was on my side. It had both an old fashioned diner and upscale bar in one place. I order the old blue eyes hamburger n fries along with a coke... More

I can't rave about this place but I will say I enjoyed my burger. I just didn't think it was 'oh wow special'. I will go back. I don't want this to be a negative review because we liked our food. If you are close and want a burger that is not fast food this is the place.

Chevy's is now called Kirby Gs. This diner has great food and service. It's a throw back to the '50's style dine with soda fountain and all. We have yet to have a bad meal or experience here. Wednesday night is $3 Jail House Brews.

Saw this place on the internet as having the best burgers on ATL in 2012. Have to say the review was correct. I have eaten at multiple burger places in the ATL and this was by far the best and actually worth the price. The service was great. We were told that everyday the owner wants the servers to give...

The location is great, very close to the square which is already decorated for Christmas. Very nice for pre or post dinner walk. Personally I think the burgers are too big, I saw one plate that had 3 thick patties stacked. No way to fit it in your mouth. We went on a Sat night & they had a special... More
