“Fun atmosphere but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

We drove by this place while heading to our hotel. Our kids were drawn in by the fun, retro decor so we decided to give it a try. It took about 10 minutes to be seated outside, which wasn't bad for a Friday night. We were seated right in front of the musical guest however, making it impossible to talk to one another, much less hear our waiter. However, the kids enjoyed the music and so did we; aside from how loud it was.

The service in general, was pretty slow. It seemed as if there were plenty of waiters but they were disorganized, dealing with customers both in and outside. It took a good 20 minutes just to get drinks but the food came quickly. It was decent; the sirloin with jalapeno jelly was good, but a tad overcooked for medium. It most definitely was NOT worth $25. I'd recommend spending less on bbq or a burger even. At the end of our meal, we decided to order ice cream. The adult cones came first before the kids! And it took yet another 20 minutes or so to get them after we had ordered.

Overall, I would not eat there again if in the area; there are plenty of better rated options.

“Great atmosphere but not the best food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

The outdoor seating area is great especially when the musicians are playing, The food is "average" at best (I do not recommend the grilled chicken sandwich). They do give samples of the Grand Canyon beer, though!

“Classic diner - step in to the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014

We have been here in September to have lunch and we weren't disappointed! It was as stepping into the past with the interior of the diner. Burgers were very good and the grill is super!

“Terrible, terrible. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by the restaurant for some BBQ. It was not busy and we were seated quickly. Problem is....the waitress never came to take our drink order. We waited 10 min plus watching the waitresses talk to each other. I dont need BBQ that bad. We left. Not coming back.

“Fantastic barbecue!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Caught their ad in a local travel guide and stopped. Glad we did. Our server, Dalia, was prompt and great with our kids (ages 6-12). Crowded but they did a good job of working us in within a reasonable amount of time. Atmosphere was fun. But the food, my heavens, it was GREAT. I had "The Ultimate Porker." A frankensteinian melding of pulled pork, slaw and burger that was created by some mad genius in the kitchen. Everyone in the family tried each others orders and it was all very good. They also serve local beers, the Grand canyon amber was superb. Would go again,.. and again and again in a heartbeat.
