Restaurant details
Reviewed October 11, 2019

This place was run by a mom and pop team for decades. It was resold about 5 years ago but still has some of the original charm. The chicken fried chicken sandwiches and sundaes are expensive but excellent. Very clean inside and great service. Parking 2 spots on the street, a few on the side street and several in an adjacent parking lot. This place is located on the corner of Main Sst. and Irving Blvd.

Did you love the 50's music ,cars, soda fountains? Most would say it was the greatest time to grow up in. If you feel that way grab your sweetheart and take her/him here. Foods great! Floats,milkshakes and sundaes amazing! BTW only Blue Bell . Keep those quarters in your pocket though your favorite songs are free on the juke box! We just surprised a couple with lunch here for their 61st anniversary. So fun and the French dip sandwich loved by all.

The food was very basic options and average quality at best. We were pretty disappointed considering it was recommended as a local historic diner. We had high hopes for this place but wont be coming back.

Was not like this before..as I have been coming here since I used to live in Irving. The hot dog was grilled and the chips are homemade. Seems like most customers come here for the hamburgers. The banana nut cake looked fresh and delicious but I did not want to gorge myself. There is a statue of Kip's big boy outside. I like to look at the vintage pictures of Irving of yesteryear. Was told that several locals donated them when the place reopened

Service and food is average. Seating capacity very limited. Old time fountain with metal shakes containers. Beside food the grill has other old time items. If it is your first time to Irving a must place to visit for Irivng history pictures, etc.
