The concept is cute. However it ends there. The food is okay, nothing to write home about, but that being said, the Atlantic Avenue selection of food is extremely pricey, so if you need a break from spending, than this is a decent place to grab a burger and fries and still have some change in your pocket.
I think I would rate this place much higher if the experience had any value, but its really just a diner with a few authentic 1950's pieces of culture, but not enough to really make it worth the trip. I would suggest they invest some money into the place, so that the jukeboxes work, and it doesn't look so worn down and then they would probably have a gold mine.
