Go for the place, enjoy the food!

50’s diner on Route 66 – lots of photos of personalities, fantastic old juke box and authentic diner stools at the counter. Food was pretty reasonable, normal diner level and my wife had a huge pecan-maple milk shake – the day’s special. Prices are low.

Going to this place is like going back in time. It's just like being in the 50's & 60's. We had good service and good burgers. The milkshakes are just like back in the old days, Good! Very few original diners left.

Looking for a legit diner experience along Rte 66 then this may be for you. We had been on a road trip and the kids were really into the historic Rte 66 stuff. We arrived I. Flagstaff for the night and decided to the diner a try. Lots of memorabilia along the walls. We were seated right away, 7:30 ish.... More

Our 1 st clue that we should have walked out was the condition of the dinner, very dirty . Bathroom was a mess, cold and dirty. Table was already set with eating utensils, yet the top was dirty and had to be cleaned. My husband ordered a hamburger, which sat under the warmer for more than 5 min. The meat... More

Stopped in this charming old diner on Route 66 in Flagstaff to grab a quick burger-lunch. This is a neat place with decent food, however, it's in serious need of some general maintenance and cleaning. They really need to close this place for about a week and scrub everything down. I'd be willing to bet that they could get a... More

The Galaxy Diner is a classic 50s diner. I wouldn't say it's great, but it's not bad. Service was just okay. I went with my 81-year-old dad and when he cracked a joke about getting a chocolate malt, the waitress didn't even crack a smile and just said, "Okay...." That was disappointing. Anyway, I had chicken-fried steak which was pretty... More

Delicious food, great burgers and fries. Coming from a small country in Europe, this restaurant represents the USA perfectly, there was jukebox, coloured led lights, round chairs and nice waiters. It was nice to see route 66 in this way.

Odor when you walked in the door should have clued me in...very bathroomy (which are right by the front door). Hate to complain but can't find a lot of positive to say. Cute diner that relies on its Route 66 old time diner mantra too much. Management needs to manage. He hung out watching the car race on the TV... More

Both times I've gone to the diner I had to wait for a long amount of time for the food to come, for our drinks to be refilled and just for our waitress to come to the table. The food was ok but not worth the wait. The first time I went was with my father and our family. Having... More
