“Great Food....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The ambience was incredible... The diner was out of the 50's with a lot of the old fashioned knick-knacks still around. Just under the ceiling there had to be a collection of at least 500 different Pez dispensers... A Jukebox that worked when you put in a 25 cent piece and not only great food but delicious milk shakes. The 1st time we were there, we shared a hamburger and a milk shake. When the milk shake arrived , we thought the waitress made a mistake and brought us 2 instead of one... Oh no, it was a humongous one. creamy and delicious. The 2nd time around a few days later we each had a hamburger and a milk shake. It kind of put a finishing touch to our visit in Albuquerque. A wonderful experience for those that grew up in tat era.

“fun time, good food, very inexpensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Haven't been in a 'diner' for many yrs and this one was just like the ones I remembered from yrs ago. Almost the enitire menu is less than $10 and the portions are huge. Its not health food but burgers, fries, meat loaf, chicken fried steak, and turkey pot pies filled us up a lot. Its a lot of fun and the service is pretty quick. Its good for groups or for families. All the milkshakes were hand made and a real treat. Its worth a stop when your driving down 'Route 66".

“Fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

While in Albuquerque, you must stop and experience route 66.
It is a place to stop and have fun.
We had a shake and pie. The shakes are the best! Pie was just ok.
Not gourmet food but nostalgia that brings people here. Lighten up folks and enjoy, don't expect a 5 star meal . Kids would love the banana split! Huge!!!!

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

An old-fashioned diner with delicious food. I had their pumpkin pie shake which was out of this world. The hamburger and french fries were good.

“Fantastic archetypal American diner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic exterior and interior. I feared the food would let it down but I was wrong. A must visit for the atmosphere.
