“Great Shakes”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We are originally from Central PA and stop at Baby's everytime we visit. They have great burger's, fries and especially milkshakes. They also have a 50s theme which makes it unique. If you are at Penn State, its definately a great spot.

Babys has it all great food, great value, great service and great atmosphere. We had whimpy burgers, fries and milkshakes for 2 for under $20. I will definitely go back!

“Throw Back Small town 50's style diner”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We always take visitors to State College here and everyone loves it. It is a 50 style diner that is well decorated with the Coke memorabilia and others 50 time frame theme. The waiters and waitresses dress the part. There is a juke box on each window seal next to your seat to play a song from the 50's and 60's for a quarter. The have good burgers and shakes and of course other diner food such as hot roast beef or turkey dinners. This is only one block from campus so getting a window seat allow for people watching. Of course the kids come for the Ice Cream. We usually do dinner or dessert. It is hard to do both on the same visit.

“Love this retro style burger joint...must try when visiting State College”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Great burgers and milkshakes! Old style little retro burger joint is a must visit at state college. Wide variety of items for any diet with quick and friendly service. They have wimpy burgers, specialty burgers and pulled pork. Yummy!

“Fun”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Excellent take on old time diner. The wait staff did seem a little more concerned about their personal coffee clutch than waiting on the tables. Food above average. Would go back.
