“Good Diner Fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2008

We went to this restaurant on a Saturday night around 7 p.m. and had about a 15 minute wait for a table. The place is done up like a 50s diner with so much attention paid to details that you feel as if you entered a time warp. Even the music was from the right era. The servers were dressed up in 50s outfits, and one male server even had his hair combed into a "DA"!

The menu consisted of standard diner fare (burgers, sandwiches, all-American entrees) with some concessions made for the health-conscious diner (low fat items). Plus there is an extensive breakfast menu. 2 of us ordered French Dip sandwiches (something you don't see much on restaurant menus anymore) and 2 ordered burgers. The sandwiches and burgers come with a choice of French fries, potato chips or cole slaw. We all ordered the fries and all agreed that they were quite tasty. The French Dip sandwiches were good. Although the roast beef could have been better quality, it was still edible. The dipping sauce was flavorful without being overly salty. The 2 who ordered burgers found them to be filling and tasty.

For dessert, 2 of us opted to share a sundae. The diner uses Breyer's ice cream. The sundae was huge--it could have easily fed three people! It was well done, however---just enough hot fudge and whipped cream plus a cherry on top!

Service was prompt and friendly plus the restaurant is very accommodating to families--they gladly provided us with 2 high chairs. For all of us, the check came to $55 even. I would certainly consider dining here again next time we're in town.
