“It will take you back in time”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The food is excellent as is the service every time I have been there. I took a couple of out of town guests there and one commented that this may be the best burger I ever tasted. They also have an excellent breakfast bar. The memorabilia on the walls will take you back to the 50's. There are pictures on the wall of people eating one of their giant burgers in a contest....I am not sure I would want to admit eating one of them and have my time posted, but it is one way to gain fame I suppose.

“A Great Family Place”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

A humongous menu with several good selections. Affordable and large portions. Beware it is a greasy spoon but it is exactly what it's supposed to be as a Diner. Food quality is above average. Service has been good too in my three to four visits. I really like the BLT. Plenty of bacon to clog my arteries. Everyone needs comfort food from time to time and I get mine here.

“night out”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

I loved the decor, it is like an old rock and roll place. The food is great! The waitresses dress in poodle skirts and the cooks are dressed like back in the 50's.
