The setting is bar and grill from the 50's. The booth seats are from vintage automobiles, and lots of memorabilia from the time period. Food is slightly above average, but worth the trip to experience the place. Lots of motorcyclists stop by here - the friendly kind.

My husband and I stopped to grab a bite with high hopes as we love a good diner and this looked like a 50s diner. Our waitress was great, but the floor was truly filthy. My husband ordered the club wrap and I ordered the smothered chicken breast. The chicken sounded very tasty, but tasted like a frozen piece of... More

We had dinner here, ordering the taco salad & a club sandwich. Onion rings looked wonderful. It was wing night, as we noticed others enjoying them. Attentive service, clean, with very authentic atmosphere from the 50's. This restaurant is located on the back side of an antiques store. Plenty of parking too. Handicap accessible.

Looks like a 50's restaurant with the decor. Food is more like an Applebee's. The fully loaded nachos are great. They have a separated bar from the dining area. Looks more like a neighborhood restaurant. The staff are nice but a little slow in serving. There were only about 15 people total between both areas. The prices are reasonable for... More

Quite an authentic style '50's decor found on the back side of a motorcycle repair store. Plenty of parking and outside seating available. Hamburgers, onion rings, fries, malts are the mainstays. Good for lunch!

For appetizers, we ordered spicy mac-n-cheese bites and jalapeno poppers. both appetizers were good. For meals we ordered; 2 chef salads, country fried steak, a buffalo chicken wrap,... More

Our waitress was terrific! Our food arrived quickly and it was a generous portion of awesomeness! We enjoyed our entire meal and the lay back atmosphere. I'd eat here again!!!

Even though the place was busy, we got a seat quickly. The service was a little slow and the food was average. We would eat there again just because it was close to our hotel. The ambiance is probably the best part of the place.
