We had a fun dinner at this restaurant. Loved the music, decor and dancing by the waitresses. Each table seemed to be having fun. The food was very good, also. Nice portion sizes and reasonably priced. Would definitely like to return when visiting SD again.

Hi Marco. We love your pets but due to a few different reasons we only allow service animals at the Corvette Diner. If your best friend is a service dog then by all means we hope to see you soon. The Corvette Diner Team

Rock n' Roll, burgers and shakes rule at the Corvette Diner! A '50s throw-back, with sassy waitresses in poodle skirts and bouffant hair-dos. It's more than just a place to eat, it's a destination.
