“A TRIP BACK IN TIME”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

DJ's is a recreation of a 50's type diner. It is complete with 50's rock and roll music, poodle skirted, friendly wait staff and great food. the chicken salad is to die for and they have the best burgers in the area (Best of Lancaster). During the year they have a car show, movie night and a tribute to Lucy, plus other fun things. family friendly atmosphere. the owners have tried to take you back in time to a more carefree area......very nice

“Small”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Food was good. Decor and music great. Too small for the amount of patrons-very crowded. Not enough wait staff. Slow service.

“Nice little Diner”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Excellent value, good food, and fantastic atmosphere. They pushed tables together for our party of 11, had food out quickly. Girls waitressing in 50's dress, and great decor on the walls. Poodle skirts and other fifty's apparel available for purchase.

“Back to the 50's and it was Fun!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Our group of six annually weekend in the Dutch Country and this newer restaurant will now be on our favored restaurants list. Service was very good from these ladies dressed in polka dot skirts and appropriate accessories. Be prepared for "singing along" as the music refreshes many memories. Menu was limited but they had what you would expect from a "50's Diner". Decor was excellent. This is not a late night place with a closing time of 8 pm the Saturday we were there. .

“A Pleasant Blast from the Past!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

We recently dined at DJ's Taste of the 50's for lunch during our stay in Bird-in-Hand. What a lovely little place! Everything is decorated in the style of the 1950's and extremely clean and colorful. We both ordered Cheeseburgers, French Fries, and a Chocolate Milkshake and enjoyed our meal greatly. The cost of the food was very reasonable, and on top of that I had a coupon that entitled us to 50% off one of our entree's that I received by signing up online for their e-mail newsletters. Not only that, but the service was terrific, and all of their personable servers were all dressed in the most darling little 1950's outfits. We would definitely recommend it, and we will definitely visit DJ's again the next time that we are staying in the area.
