Besides the hamburgers and hot dogs, they have a secret menu. Ask for items that are on it and you will be surprised.

Loved exploring the building inside and out. The diner had classic malt shop fare. Woolworth memorabilia can be found near the entrance. The former store is now a large antique mall. Come stroll down memory lane.

Stopped by with my mom to have some ice cream. My mom had a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and i had the Almond Roca chocolate milkshake. I was impressed with the many chunks of almond roca in my milk shake.

Most of you who are baby boomers remember the old Woolworth's store and/or diner. What a treat it was to go and sit at the counter! We had business in Bakersfield, and made this a "must stop" for nostalgia reasons, and really glad we did,...More

What a trip down memory lane. The vintage merchandise was so fun to look at and buy. It was so nostalgic to see the building and grab some food at the counter with my family.
