As we drove through town on 89A looking for a place to eat for dinner on a Sunday night at 6:30pm, it seemed as if most of the restaurants had closed early. So when we saw "Diner" and an "OPEN" sign lit up, we just pulled right over. We were pleasantly surprised by the decor. The kids loved it, and we thought it was definitely original, but hey, we're into this stuff. We enjoyed going through all the names on the menu and looking at the decor.
Table or booth? Booths are on the other side of the diner as you enter and apparently the more popular section. We chose a table in the emptier front entrance of the diner. Service was friendly and prompt with multiple visits to the table to ask if we needed things like napkins,ketchup, refills. We had a 'split' burger for the kids (bun to one child and meat to another), a club for dad, and a french dip for me. No issues with greasy burgers or fries, and the sandwiches were delicious. I enjoyed the mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy myself.
Prices were the same as we'd pay at similar diners, but the kids meals were pricier at $6.50/meal, which included a soda. They charged an extra $2 for milks in large styrofoam cups that weren't really kid friendly, so I'd recommend splitting milk and bringing your own cups if you have little ones.
Overall, we'd come here again.. .there were so many choices available on the menu. We prefer patronizing mom and pop places over Denny's and McDonald's. If I want to go on a ride, I go to Six Flags... if I want an experience, I go to Disneyland.
Besides, the peanut butter milkshake alone was well worth a return visit!
