My Family and I were out running errands and wanted to grab a quick bit to eat. We decided on Kirby G's Restaurant. While it does not have the glitz and glamour, it does serve very good food. All of the food items have menu names from the 50's and 60's. I had a steak sandwich called the Jerry Lee,... More

Was impressed with the hand crafted burger and hot fries. I stole a hand made potato chip from my friends plate which was really good also. MILK SHAKES !!! Not a cheap lunch, but I felt the food was worth the price. It was good. I wish I remembered our waitress' name, she was very helpful and made the experience... More

The staff here is always nice and the food has always been good. Prices are not out of range for what you get and are affordable. Give them a try; I don't think you will be disappointed.

We were in town to pick up a Whirlpool appliance from the distribution factory which is very close by. My wife and I both ordered burgers - I must say, these were among the best we've had in many years! This place is absolutely worth a 10 minute drive off the expressway!!

Unexpected, but enjoyable 1950s decor and vibe. Quiet and relaxing. The Black & Blue Burger was fantastic!

The burger was cooked to perfections and flavorful, wings were perfectly fried and portions were huge. Both my Wife and i enjoyed this new experience. I found my new diner. Staff was extremely attentive and polite and even told us when they were changing shifts so we wouldn't think we were being abandoned.

I love the blue cheese burgers, wife loves the wings. The chili is great and fries are really good. We eat there at least once a month. Always good. Service is good. You will be well pleased.

Absolutely nothing "Great" about this place. We don't eat out often; however, came here because the new Five Guy's down the street had just opened......and it was crowded!! Really expensive for what we got. The food wasn't bad, luke warm at best. Even the "deep fried/battered green bean" appetizer we got for free!! Nothing here screams "Come Back for More!"... More

Welcome to KirbyG's,(R) a cook-to-order family owned diner that began in 2008. We've trademarked a new name since then but we still strive to make your experience enjoyable. KirbyG's(R) is our tribute to the 1950s! So, take the Pit Crew challenge and stroll down memory lane. Put a name to a face, a quote to a star & a character to a movie. For the very brave, you may even attempt to find them on our walls. Patrons are treated to handpattied burgers such as Ike's "I Like Cheese" Burger, Ole Blue Eyes and The Duke. And, if a hamburger isn't for you, diners will find mouth-watering delectables such Desi's Fried Dill Pickles, Rock-a-Billy's Grilled Chicken, and the Whiz Kids Philly Cheesesteak. Topped off with a hand-spun shake or a cold microbrew, patrons will find that "The 50's Never Tasted Better!
