A really enjoyable experience with a great 50s vibe. The burgers and fries were great and the kids loved their milkshakes. Very happy we visited.

We heard about the good burgers. Too bad they never arrived.
The place is filthy. The toilets are filthier.
There's chewing gum under the tables.
Not a classic American Diner. Really.

This was place was fab.
The cherry come was to die for Nd the chilli fries were pretty yummy.
The Devore of this place is so inviting however prob does need a bit of a makeover e.g reupholster chairs etc.
It was quiet when we were in here but you can see it would certainly be busy at times.
You really do feel like your in America while dining at Soda Rock.
It's a great little place to watch the world go by on chapel street.
Highly highly recommend I you want that American experience.

Had a very tasty burger with the family. All enjoyed the meals, Cherry coke was very good as was the root beer.
Prices seemed very reasonable. Portion sizes were just right - a bit big for kids maybe.
Sure, the place could do with a bit of renovation here and there but its a retro diner and it's the food that counts.
Perhaps an overall deep clean would help this place along.
(Clean the air con outlet ducts).

I read few reviews that say this place is old. Yes, this place is old and that's the best thing about it. It gives you a retro American feeling. Food is really tasty. I had an awesome Hot Dog and my friend had a burger which he mentioned was tasty.

Milk Shakes here are quite famous and really good.

I love the theme of the restaurant which reminds you of a retro area. Each table has a coin operated machine, using which you can play a song of your choice.
