“Good family diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

My husband and I would frequently take our kids here for burgers and ice cream during the summer months. At first the food nor the service impressed us so we mostly stuck to just stopping in for ice cream then a few months ago we noticed they had a new cook and boy what a difference! You actually were getting your moneys worth with a big juicy burger nicely put together not just slapped on a bun and a generous helping of fries. The last time we went though I noticed they changed their menu a bit and what you use to pay for the burger and fries was now the cost of a burger alone and sides were additional which gets costly. Overall great family diner with great food but still lacking in service

“Generous portions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here. Hubby had 1/2 pound burger & fries; I had the carrot soup and Caesar salad. All tasty. A bit on the pricey side, but everything in Whitehorse appears to be.

“Back to the 50's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Prices a bit high. Everything "extra". Hot dog good. Salad very good, burgers okay but not great. Sundae's and milk shakes hit the mark. It would be nice if at least the fries came with the burgers and hot dog.

“Overpriced, but nice decor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

Service was fine, The decor was like being in a 50's Archie comic book - definitely what a 50's diner should look like. This is the positive. Food was okay, but incredibly expensive. Fries or a salad are an extra cost (as opposed to included, like most restaurants) to what are fairly pricey burgers. There is only one, very expensive combo. Milkshake was actually really good (no syrup, real ice cream - I had the black cherry), but it was $6.00. I know things cost more up North, but this was ridiculous. I did not feel that what my husband and I ordered was worth the price.
