Have not been in a real diner in years. 1950's motif. Food was as expected for a diner fare. Coffee was weak. Meatloaf was average.

Excellent breakfast and extensive menu. Waitresses were friendly and atmosphere was fun. We plan on coming back at some point in our vacation to try the banana split which looks like a REAL banana split and not the foo foo kind other places serve.

Excellent food. I highly recommend the bison burger! The atmosphere is interesting, and there are often car shows outside. Fun place to go with family, gave it 4 stars instead of 5, because the servers could stand to be friendlier. But overall, great place!

Small diner on the way in to Pigeon Forge from Rt 40. Fairly large menu for a small place, and all four of us ordered different items. Good fried pickles and fried green tomatoes. The burgers were cooked to perfection. Better food than Paula Deen and Dixie Stampede.

Good food at reasonable prices. Lots of food, you'll leave stuffed to the gills! Friendly and prompt service in a cool 50's atmosphere, we were very happy with our experience and we'd definitely go back.

Nice unique atmosphere. Average food but a little high priced. Friendly service. Might have to try a home made dessert and coffee next time.

First visit. Nice retro atmosphere. Good, friendly service. Not a bad place for a quick, casual business lunch. Burgers were over-cooked but we'll try them again. I recommend adding this place to the 'must try' list.

Thanks for the post. As you likely know we char-grill your Angus, buffalo or elk burger fresh to your order from medium rare to well done. Your post is apparently more evidence that mere mortals cook and work here. We trust you let us know when you were dining and we helped you. Very occasionally someone wants their burger flat-grilled... More
