We came upon the Galaxy Dinner and went in because the motif interested us. We are glad we did! The food was delicious! The menu was fantastic. We even had dessert, which we don't normally do.

Great diner food. Burgers, fries and milk shakes. They also have salads and vegetarian food so there is choice for all. It is most appealing for those who like their food fried featuring fried twinkies and fried Oreos for dessert and dangerous artery clogging choices....More

Can’t beat the prices, the great food, and the fried pickles. When my family comes into town, they always want to come here. Save room for fried Oreos. They’re better than the fair. The macaroni and cheese is delicious and so is the country fried...More

We were at the VMFA and wanted to grab some lunch and this place popped up. My other half LOVES diners, so it was an obvious choice for lunch. This place is small, but packed with personality. Great servers, creative concept, from interior vibe to...More
