OK - This is an 'OK' diner but no more. I had ribs - well cooked but somewhat lacking in flavour as they apper to have been cooked 'straight' and then the BBQ sauce poured on after, rather than cooked in sauce for full flavour. Wife's 'mixed leaf salad' had only 1 type of leaf, the ubiqitous cos lettuce. My banana milk shake was as basic as it gets, some flafour in milk. I would needed to have upgraded to with ice cream and cream to get anything approaching a thick milkshake.
Service was quick & efficient

I have visited route 38 on many occasions but this particular one to celebrate a friends birthday was awful. It reminded me of when they first opened. The service was slow, they did not bring out all the starters at the same time and then when reminded brought it out late. They then rushed us as our mains was ready. These must have been standing for a while because mine was dried out and luke warm. The staff did not apologise and seemed uninterested in making our visit a nice experience.
My other visits here have been fairly pleasant, food average and plentiful, maybe too much for those who have small appetites but they do box it up for you to take it away if you ask. The portions are ideal for those who have a big appetite though and want value for money!
I won't be rushing to go back!

Nice american style restaurant. Huge portions for low money. Don't expect a fine dinning. But if you'll come hungry in there you'll happy with the size of the meals.

Can seem a bit corny, but in a good way. The food is great but remember that American portions are that bit bigger so don't let your eyes get bigger than your stomach when reading the menu (take a peek at what other people are eating!!).There's lot's of American decor, memorabilia and background music too.

Have been many times over the past few years. Like the ribs combo, & have also had a good many all day brekkies here too. Sometimes a wait, but good, fast-ish style food in a nice rock & roll atmosphere!
