Re-live the 1950's! and have a great experience!

Black and white TV shows, food from the 1950's, the employees are dressed in 1950's attire, and even a 1958 Corvette in the lobby. And the food you ask: Burgers, sandwiches, "garbage plate", ice cream sodas and shakes, mac and cheese homemade, salads, and more. Go there on your birthday, and... read more

My family and I went to this restaurant on our last night of vacation (7/18/15) hoping for a fantastic finish to our wonderful vacation in San Diego. I was prepared for the 1 hour wait for a large party. My first mistake was agreeing to being seated in the "Party Room" after waiting for 1 hour. We were stuck in... More

Loved the decor and our food was delicious! We enjoyed watching snippets of '50's era movies and musicals from the screen in our booth and the wait staff was also very entertaining. Family friendly & fun for all. Probably not the best for a romantic dinner as it seems to be "the place" for kids birthday parties, but we really... More

This was a great restaurant. The wait staff was superb. The food was delicious! This restaurant came highly recommended. We were given an hour wait time but the time was only about half the time. The wait staff even did a dance routine for entertainment.

If your looking for a family fun and crazy dining experience, I strongly suggest Corvette's. The staff was attentive and courteous with pride in their appearance to capture the moment and toss you into the fun. The food was nothing spectacular, but it was the atmosphere that made it a great night.

Been here a few times now and haven't left disappointed. It was recommended by a friend and we tried it out. We've been in July 2014, October 2014, December 2014 and for the last time in March 2015. I was intrigued by the Elvis burger with bacon and peanut butter. I have to say it is such a strange combination,... More

Loved, loved, loved this place. Enjoyed the music, the dancing waitresses, the food, the shakes and the overall experience we had there with the family. Would like to see the music turned down a bit but loved the DJ and the type of music that was being played. The peanut butter, banana and chocolate chip shake was AMAZING!!! Can't wait... More

The place was very fun for my grand son. A balloon guy goes around the restaurant making any kind of character you want. My grand son choose a ninja turtle and he done a awesome job. The food and the service was good. And for kids they would love the place.

A fun stop for some nostalgic food and entertainment. Great menu choices but we had delicious malts, hamburgers and fries. High energy and good eats. Wish we had one in our town.

Loud and loose, but fun for the kids. Typical diner food, but the waitstaff were delightful and very fun.
