This is a great spot for a dinner which is much tastier than you might think from the diner decor. While the menu is fairly simple, the food is more interesting than bad burgers and fries. I had the salad with salmon which was a great and very fresh, generous-sized piece of salmon on a very healthy salad.
BBQ (only served weekends) is really good - my boyfriend has had it and is a bbq snob. In fact we chose to go there for the BBQ but realised it's not served daily and thus were relegated to the fried chicken...and were very happy. I had forgotten what home-made fried chicken tastes like. The mac and cheese side was great - there is some special cheese in there...reminiscent of Fondue (there must be gruyere and white wine and nutmeg in it). The collard greens were so good I could have just eaten a plate of them.
The decor is fun but the atmosphere, service etc. are not kitschy - there is real emphasis on the food. I would not necessarily want a first date at a place like this (wine list looked very sparse) but it's great for a low key dinner. Also great pre or post airport as it is not far from LAX. Deserts looked pretty good but we abstained.
