Neon welcomes you into the past. I noticed that the clock on the outside has no hands why is this not fixed? Was seated in a booth near the counter. Service & food both were good. Sunday, Monday Happy Days !

“Galaxy Diner - A Blast from the Past!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Young and old enjoy the Galaxy Diner. It is located on the west side of Flagstaff on Historic Old Route 66. If you were a teenager in the late 50's or early 60's, this place would be very significant for you. The food is good too - be sure to have a milkshake with you meal.

Go there - take pictures - enjoy the nostalgia - enjoy the food. If you dressed like the Fonz or Potsie, you would feel as if you had gone back in time.

“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We go to the Galaxy Diner often when we are in Flagstaff. I was just at a Krav Maga instructors school at AZ Elite Combat & Fitness and we took in breakfast at the Galaxy this Thursday. As always great food and service.

“Maybe we got lucky....”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We read some questionable reviews but decided to try it anyway. We were seated in the back and got a waitress who wasn't as swamped as the ones up front. We ate the breakfast special listed on the door - not on the menu. Plenty of food and really delicious! Cute place too!

“A step back in time”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This is the best example of the old style diner that I have come across.
The service was excellent and fast, the food was of a very high standard. I don't know how they manage to survive when charging so little, but I bet it is so popular with the locals that it will be here for a long time to come.
