Food was ok, nothing to write home about. Had some communication problems with the person taking order. Asked what the smokehouse chicken was and never really got an answer so ordered something else instead. Juke box didn't appear to work.

Alumni and students alike enjoy the food and remembering the past! It's been around since the 1920's and everyone loves the soda fountain feel of the restaurant. Try out the tater tots, fudge, and sundaes... great fun!

This diner is in the Purdue University Union building. Burgers, shakes and other diner food is available. It was a pleasant surprise to find this instead of the typical chain food court on so many campuses.

Lots of atmosphere, good quick food at a reasonable price. Open when little else open on Sundays. Booth tables all needed wiping down but otherwise a very good experience.

Visiting Purdue University. Located on first floor of Memorial Union building with lots of other eating options. This old school diner type restaurant is run by students. They served up good food at a very reasonable price. Nice staff and nice atmosphere. Great shakes!
