“Classic Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Good old-time classics. Steaks, burgers, fries, shakes, white gravy. I especially love the Wednesday special: Fried Chicken.

“Good ole days.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This place brings me back to when I was younger with the deco and the atmosphere. We went there for breakfast and came away very full. The shakes are excellent. I had the waffle and it is by far the best waffle I have ever had. The waggle was soft and it has a hint of an almond flavor to it which makes it special. Everyone else in the party got breakfast plates and said they were good but nothing special. I would go back but its not something you go out of your way for.

“saved by milkshakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

As a previous commentator wrote, the food isn't much to brag about but I fell in love with the strawberry milkshakes. It had full chunks of strawberries and was sweet and tasty.

“Throw Back Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Wide variety to menu. Food is really good! Atmosphere is 1950's - 1960's fun. Gifts are available. A BBQ/Smoker is located in front. Prices are not too bad, though not "value meal" priced, quite good food!
