Good Food and Quick Service

We have eaten at hundreds of diners in the last several years while traveling. This rates as a pretty good place to eat. The menu is pretty thorough and the prices a little high ($10 for a club sandwich) but the service is quick and the portions are large enough to split. Note that they are only... read more

My wife and I got a BLT, and a burger, and split a shake. Reasonably priced. Good food, great service.

My friend and I stopped in after taking the Underground Tour. We split the turkey wrap, which was delicious, without having to pay extra ( so many places do now). The diner is small, the decor does not overtake the space, the young staff is friendly and courteous. We left feeling refreshed and not over full.

We had breakfast here and enjoyed a great meal. The service is great and the 50's motif and 50's-60's music was a plus. Staff was great and the food was great too and cooked as ordered. They close at 2 PM.

It was quiet when my family and I went in, so it was nice for us. The food was good and prices seemed fairly priced. I recommend it if you are in Pendleton, OR.

I like this place especially the 50's ambiance, but it closes at 2:00 PM everyday and it's hard to actually make it there in time to eat.

I saw this quaint little diner on main street in Pendleton while passing through. I read reviews of places to eat often on trip advisor throughout my travels and have noticed many to be biased. Possibly owners are posting their own reviews as well as the competition. I am not in the food business, so I can honestly give my... More

We have ate here several times and was always pretty good. Well they dropped the ball this time, I ordered a patti melt, they over cooked the burger and didn't grill the bread. I know it was a little before 1 and they close at 2 but good grief yuck.
