Since this place is in my neighborhood, I'm pretty much a regular. Lucky me, I don't have to think twice when I'm in the mood for an awesome burger, perfect fries (WITH skin), or a tasty milkshake. The atmosphere is great, authentic retro diner, and on certain nights there is live music and dancing. Service has always been fast and friendly too.

If I had to nitpick, I'd say stay away from the pies. But since I'm more or less half American nowadays, my apple pie standard is very high. The chocolate cake with ice cream hits the spot for me, though.

Try to get good tea in Portugal. No sweat here. The manager was amazing. Helpful and clearly in touch with the needs of his customers. Highly recommended.

In the new part of the town this restaurant takes its stand for the theme. The atmosphere is great and I believe it must be even more great at night (I went there for lunch). Lots of memorabilia, neons, etc... makes you travel through time. I believe I was really close to american 50's. In all this careful designed atmosphere I'd just change one thing: the background music. The chosen radio to ear along your meals was M80 wich plays music mostly from the 70's, 80's and 90's. I think it was not appropriate, I was more expecting to ear some rock&roll, Elvis, etc...
And just because I mentioned Elvis... I ate an Elvis Burger and had a Banana Shake. The medium rare burger was superb and the garnish was also very good (pineapple, chips, onion, salad). Loved the milk shake.
Just to finish, the service and the staff were very friendly and fast.
