“Great burgers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Just spent several days in State College and I went to Baby's twice while there. Food is great and I love the fun little retro diner feel. Burgers are yum-o!! Definitely stop here while in town!

“Great Shakes”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Throw Back Small town 50's style diner”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
