So i buy my tires from Punchy Whitaker's Tire Service and I always go early mornings to beat the crowd. So what do you do for an hour without wireless internet?

I'm not from the Concord area; however, each tim I go through there, I always eat at Punchy's. I've never been disappointed with the food or service. The ambiance alone is enough to keep me coming back. Lots of fun retro/vintage antiques on display. 50's music playing from what sounds like a jukebox (but not so loud that you can't... More

There were 7 of us with 4 being young children. The service was fast and correct. The total bill with tax and lots of extras was $72.29. 50's type diner with menu of that era--burgers, hot dogs, soup, shakes, etc. as I recall they serve Tony's ice cream.

Their breakfast is always good and so is the service. However, the cleanliness has really gone downhill. The entire place needs a thorough scrubbing.

The atmosphere of the diner is fantastic. Old school cars in a little show case, waitresses in bowling shirts, very friendly staff. Great neighborhood feel. The food was pretty good too- the grits were fantastic!

Punchy's has great food and makes you fill like you have been taken back in time. The service was great and the music was good to listen. This is a great place to take your kids.

I had a burger and fries. The lettuce was iceberg, as was the salad. I'd like at least romaine, but it's a cute place

This really brings me back to yesterday or yesteryear. The design inside is typical 1950's or 60's design. Great open areas and the food is wonderful. Step back and enjoy the food.
