Just like when I was a teenager. Hamburger, fries and a malted. The fish and chips were really good and not greasy.

We went here twice for the breakfast buffet and loved it! The food was hot and fresh. The cinnamon rolls were to die for. The 50's diner decor was a nice touch. The entertainment was good. Both times the singers did a great job. And the waitstaff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend eating here.

The service was great. The food was excellent. Best Ruben sandwich in a long time. The music was good. Not concert material, but fun. Atmosphere great. 50 and 60's style. Like a Hollywood diner. Old and young alike will enjoy this. Also came back the next day for the breakfast bar.

We stopped here because it was on the way to our next activity. What a great surprise! The décor is 50s diner, and the food is as well. We had fish/chips and a hamburger. All of food was hot, fresh, and very tasty. My dad said the fish was some of the best he had had---cod, I believe he said... More

My family ate there two different times. We ate dinner there one night and had the breakfast there another day. The food was good and the service was fast and friendly. We were disappointed that they didn't have any music when we were there. I really liked the military display in the front.

If you like the 50's diner experience, then you have to go to the Uptown Cafe. The decor is definitely the 50's. The food that all of us ordered was good. A singer was providing entertainment even at 2:00 in the afternoon. A stage is provided for the entertainers, but they probably stroll among the customers as well. There were... More

The food and service were great. Try their hamburger- hand made and grilled. Just off the strip but easy to get to.

It looks like we went at the wrong time. There was no live music and lunch was tiny. For the burgers, it looks like they bought the burgers off the dollar menu at a fast food place and stuck it on their bun. We had fish and chips that was served in a kids sized basket. The side salad was... More
