“Reminded me of my 1950's”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Have stopped there several times over the years. They occasionally have car shows there and the theater attached is a great place to visit as their shows are very entertaining. The food is typical 1950's burgers, pizza, etc., the prices very reasonable and everything I'v had there was good. Great atmosphere. If you're over 60, you must stop here. If you're younger, go and live the GOOD life, great music!

This 50's style diner has great food that's very affordable and fun entertainment, including car shows, hula hoop contests, and a live DJ. It's a family favorite.

“Great place to take the kids”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Baby boomers and kids really go for this place. It's decorated just like a 1950s malt shop and they have burgers, pizza, and ice cream sodas. The food is consistently good and the service is good too. It's like taking a trip back in time.
