Stopped in here on our last trip to Lancaster. Wow what a great place. Place was Verily nicely done in 50’s theme. The first thing you will notice is how very clean the place is. The food was awesome. I had a burger with gravy fries. The burger was excellent and the gravy fries were amazing as well. My wife got a cheesesteak that was top notch. Kids across from us had their fries and onion rings delivered to them in little cardboard 50’s hot rods. A very cool place to have lunch with very good food. The place was busy but we got a seat right away and the waitress was super nice. This place is a hidden gem.

We have been to DJ's several times. It's a fun place with 50's decor including the waitresses skirts. The price is a little high for a burger style joint, but we will go back.

Very accommodating! Lots of egg dishes (which I can't eat due to allergy) so they made me a pancake 'omelette' which was yummy. Oh, and the music was great, too :)

We (there were 4 or us) stopped here for supper. We knew we hit the jackpot when we walked in and found every table taken with people eating, I think there were only 2 empty seats on opposite sides of the room. So we waited and had fun checking out their décor (they were celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday and had all kinds of characters from his books on the walls, on the ceiling, on the windows, balloons everywhere, and tons of things to poke you head into an have your picture taken with a Dr. Seuss character), lots of kids were enjoying the food and all the things in the room as well. well it got to be about 25 minutes before they were to close down and a table came open for all 4 of us. We asked if we had time to order and eat, and the waitress said don't worry, they would feed us and if we were the last people in the place they would wait for us to leave. Well, we placed our orders and we quickly got the food we ordered. The service was excellent and the food was delicious and homemade with large portions. The staff were very friendly and fun, even for such a very busy Diner. It almost seemed that they were enjoying themselves as well. We had burgers, tuna melt, French fries, a milkshake, and a great root beer float. (and coffee for one of us!) It was a really great place for hungry families, couples or singles. And the 4 of us all ate our fill for under $50. (Which also included a nice tip for the waitress.) I highly recommend the place, if you can get in!
