“Kitchy”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Very 50's, perhaps overkill especially if you were part of that time. The service was ok, the waitress was in a hurry. The food took forever. We ordered burgers ours arrived and my grandson's grilled fluffier nutter on Texas toast arrived 5 minutes later. They close at 2 pm so don't plan on hanging out. Many people were turned away at 2:01 pm.

“50's decor”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Food was good. Seemed a little short-handed for the amount of customers . It was a busy morning and there were only 2 waitresses

“Bring plenty of cash & patience”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The place was full of tourists when I stopped by with a friend for lunch- took several minutes to get a table, several more minutes to give our drink order. All the time we spent catching up, several more tourists stopped in. My friend & I ordered burgers and waited-waited-waited. The food was ok but the decor is the real attraction to this place & why the tourists like it. Personally, it reminds me of my grandfathers kitchen on Sunday afternoons.

If you're in from out of town- you'll love it. If you're a local- there are other choices. And if you're looking for lunch- plan on an extended stay during the tourist season.

“Definitely worth the stop”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went for lunch and had a fun time. Granted that the decor is what you go for, it did not disappoint us although the food was pretty much standard diner fare.
