“Fun place for lunch or breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

A 50's themed dinner, like a step in your better memories of the past. Waitress in era outfit break into a song every once and again. Food and service is good, it's neat and sparkly clean fun spot. You see family's couples and friends gather here , worth a stop.

“Fabulous Fifty Food and Music Fun for Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2011

We are regular customers at DJ's Taste of the 50's ever since we accidently found it last year. I had a great Cheeseburger with fries and a Milkshake. It was better than I remembered as a kid in the early 60's. The wait staff all dress like 1950's car hops and the music is nonstop 1950's hits. My family all look forward to our next visit.
There are kids meals for the younger ones. Excellent.

“What fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2011

We went to DJ's because husband wanted a burger after a few days of PaDutch cooking. We walked into our childhood. The decor was what we remembered with lots of red and black, and the waitresses were dressed the part right to their pony tails and Roy Orbison glasses. Alice explained the menu pointing out her favorites. Husband had his buger with yummy fries and I had the "Fred and Ethel" which was half a packed chicken salad sandwich (my choice of several) with a cup of very good cheeseburger soup. We were tempted by the milkshake but decided to be a little bit good!
They also serve breakfast so next time we hit Amish Country, DJ's will be on our list!
