You just have to visit this place if you are in the area. It is NOT a "fifties-style diner." That is, they didn't have an interior designer come in to decorate it in "50's style." No, Keedy's is really an old diner that just hasn't changed much over the years. Neither has the menu, except for the addition of some Mexican items.

I order my usual breakfast when I'm eating out (my brother says I'm stuck in a rut) of chicken-fried steak, eggs, and hash-browns. They are plentiful and served just the way I like them, especially the crispy hash-browns. Yummy.

For lunch I always get a "Keedy's fix" -- cheeseburger and fries, and a shake. Especially try the date shake, if you've never had one. For good comfort food in a place that is not reminiscent of an old `50's diner, but really IS an old `50's diner, this is THE place to go!

Faux or reproduction diners have gotten popular, but Keedy's has been open since the 50's and is the real deal. It's a traditional breakfast & lunch-only diner, but the quality of the food sets it in a class by itself. The pancakes alone are worth making the trip -- they're as thin and delicate as crepes, but with a flavor all their own. The service is great and the prices are appropriate. I'm proud to be Keedy's "Newest Regular"!

A visit to my old home town never goes without a stop at Keedy's for a hamburger and chocolate malt, (known to many of the locals as the "fix"). The place prides itself on having the same diner counter it opened with in 1957. So worn one can barely tell it use to have a pattern on its formica top! But, regardless of how busy this place is, (which is frequently) service is always good and the food consisent. I started going to this place in 1964 and it's just as good today as it was back then even though it's on its third owner, each of which smartly decided not to change too much from the original abiding by the principle that if it ain't broke don't fix it. Great place for a quick bite of typical diner-type food for breakfast, lunch or early dinner...but do try the malted milks done the ol' fashion way...well worth it!

We ate at keedy's twice when we went to Indian Wells this month. Absolutely a must do when you go there. The food is good. A mix of comfort foods with a Mexican flare. When you go there you can imagine hollywood greats going there to just get away from the super glam for a stack of pancakes or an egg white omelette. We didn't wait and even if we did it would have been worth it.
