This is a really cool 50s style diner that does serve amazing adult dessert drinks that are extremely filling. The hamburgers are good too. I would recommend going here but sharing a drink.More

Our family of 7 was promptly seated during dinner hours. Resturant is decorated with a variety of cheerful purple cows and they had a great menu of mostly burgers and sandwiches. Service was prompt and friendly and food was great! Will go back for sure!More
