Great food great price. Just like the 50's cash only plz. Staff was very nice. I've been a couple of times. Its all done up of course in the 50's garb. So for a flashback in time & great food. So fire up the Daloren & fly on in.

There are great choices on the menu. Service is excellent. Food was OK, nothing special. I think it is way too pricey.

Had a simple, but delicious grilled cheese with red onions. The sodas were huge. The service was good.

We found the 50s diner on trip advisor so we thought we would try it. Definitely a place a lot of locals go too. The waitress was very personable and efficient. The food came quickly also. Everything was good except I felt like the home fries were boiled not friend. They were mushy and bland. But besides that everything else... More

The first thing that strikes you is - the line of people waiting to get in. Certainly there is a reason. The food is delicious! We came at 11, were seated about 11:20 and ordered breakfast. My companion had strawberry French toast - thick pieces, perfectly prepared and smothered with strawberries (previously frozen). She declared them excellent. My Greek omelette... More

Sat for breakfast and Ordered a cheeseburger that comes with fries and was told couldnt have fries but could have fried potatos (sauteed ) instead. So they can serve a burger but cant make the fries that go with it? Service was poor- my cash sat on table and was ignored until finally the waitress gave me the bill and... More

I have been here many times on weekdays and occasionally on the weekend. This is a very good dinner with typical fare. While nothing stands out as exceptional, they do the basics very well. I often meet people here for business breakfasts on weekdays when there is no lines. On a weekday they do not rush you out and sometimes... More

Great breakfast at a reasonable price. We got there early one Saturday morning and had a delicious hearty breakfast. It fills up fast so plan on waiting if you go midmorning. Food was solid and everything was hot and quick to come to the table. Portions are huge!

Needed something in this area to go to for breakfast and tripadvisor had high reviews for this restaurant, so we went. Line was long, but moved very quickly. Menu had lots to choose from. We were a party of 5 & ordered a few different dishes and did some sharing. Eggs Benedict was tasty with a great hollandaise sauce, The... More

If you enjoy 50s music with you breakfast, this is your place. I loved it. Breakfast served all day and they make their own corned beef hash. Nothing fancy, but filling food. The decor is very diner, even if that's not the outside look. Loved listening to Johnnie Mathis with my coffee. The orange juice was fresh and good. Had... More
