“fun, friendly, and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Service was good, food was delicious and reasonably priced. The atmosphere is fun, oldies theme. Lots of cool fun signage on the walls to read and laugh about. We had breakfast and we both enjoyed it. Menu had a good selection of stuff and they have an icecream place!!

“Excellent food, service and great 50's diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Went here with my parents and they loved the 50's feel, music and menu.
Service is quick, great food and value for your money. We went for breakfast and left full!! Not greasy like some other breakfast places. Worth every penny!
I've also been for milkshakes and they are amazing!!!
Will definitely go again and again.
