Originally from the area and visit almost every year, but this was my first trip to the Pink Cadillac Diner and it was worth the trip. 10+ of us met for a family get together and this was the place my relatives chose. The service was very friendly and the seating was spacious. We all sat around the same table... More

If you like stepping back into time and having a not so great meal, then stop in. We were not impressed with our lunch. Suggestion to the owner: the place needs to shut down for a week and have a very thorough cleaning from top to bottom. Scrub the floors, tables, walls and ceiling. The utensils were literally originals and... More

Waited 15 mins for someone to take our order. Then 40 minutes for our food we were in the restaurant with 2 other couples. They had 5 waitress who were talking with "regulars". We were on vacation passing through never again.

Good home cooking and good service. Been here a few times and it's always good. Recommended to many campers when we were at Yogi Bear and many took advantage of it!

Lot of 60's memorabilia hamburger was good and service was good. Close to Natural Bridge was very convenient and they also have Hershey's ice cream.

Just passing through and saw the sign so we stopped. Always been a big Elvis fan and love the oldies so I was hoping the food was going to be as I remembered it in the 50's at neighborhood diners that looked like this. The burgers are fresh and hand made and you don't find that in too many places... More

We stopped here after the Safari Park. Eating here is a better option than the park but there are much better options in Lexington. The service was beyond terrible with the waitresses openly complaining. Our waitress didn't bring our bill and was not going to get our kids the ice cream that was included in their meals. Very rude.

We try to stay away from chains and usually ask the locals for recommendations. Our guide at the Natural Bridge Caverns told us to drive west on Route 11 for about 5 miles to the Pink Cadillac and suggested that we get the burgers or the fried chicken. Can't miss the pink building right after you cross I-81 when you're... More

The food was good, service was blah. It felt like we were bothering for being there. It has a nice ambiance if you like Elvis.

The restaurant itself didn't feel clean - the tables were sticky, the floor looked sticky, and there was a heavy smell of fried food (well, perhaps that can't be helped because looking around, nearly 100% of the diners ate something fried). Not a good place for me. Good ice cream: Hershey's.
