“Service and food very good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We drove to San Diego with our Corvette Club and I was not expecting much from the diner, but it was very good. I had a Rueben sandwich and my husband had a pastrami that was very good. I am not a fries person, but the fries were really good. The waitress was really on top of everything. We would go again.

“Old School DIner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

If your nastalgic for the 50's and 60's, this a nice place to visit with the kids. Serivice is good and the burgers and shakes are pretty good. They have a game room off to the side for kids to have a little fun while waiting for food or burn off their food. It is in the old NTC center so it may be hard to find since all the the buildings look alike. I miss the old location in Hillcrest but this location has better parking.

“No reservations here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

They don't take reservations so if you are here at prime time dinner hour plan on waiting, especially if your party is bigger than 4. We waited for what seemed like forever. The kids were happy to play in the arcade for a while, but even they grew hungry and just wanted to eat. Plan your visit for less busy times the diner is cute and the food was good, but the wait has us thinking we probably won't go back, unless it is a school day.
