“Old American Feels At Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The restaurant motif is American 50's with pictures of movie and recording stars from that era. The food is nothing fancy, but quite good and inexpensive.

“NOT the OLD 50's Diner I Grew Up Loving...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Definitely not the OLD one located in Abanao Street. This one is totally different, riding on the popularity of the old diner we Baguio folks have grown up to. The wait staff are no longer in roller skates and the food is not as great as it used to be. A bit mediocre. Kind of disappointed with the food, but the prices are very reasonable, kind of cheap really.

I prefer their branch in Military Cut Off because it is not as crowded as their branch in General Luna Road, however, food in the latter tastes better.

They don't have that really big burgers that they used to back in the day. :(

“Nostalgic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Great ambiance! Service could be better but I have no qualms about it. Food is average in taste, but hefty in serving! Wallet-friendly!

“Big burgers@ low,low price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Its price is good for three orders! Yummy too. Downside is you need to wait to be seated. Better go early if you want the best table. Or visit their branch at Military Cut Off.

“Cool place to have lunch/dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The restaurant has an American 50's theme showing posters of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. Food is good as well, big servings at affordable prices. I highly recommend their milk shakes too.

If you're looking for a different ambiance when you're in Baguio, you should visit this diner.
