“Great Bfast and Blast from Past”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I ate breakfast here several days during our stay in Flagstaff, and food quality, service, value were always very good. That's what brought us back each day. What brought us there to start off was the diner's nostalgic appeal. Built in 1959 when formica and chrome were used everywhere, the facility and furnishings are a walk down memory lane, inside and out. The kids who waitress are all very nice too, seemingly appreciating the rare gem in which they work.

“Fun. Delicious. Dancing.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

Food was good, service was a bit slow especially for a dinner setting. Excellent atmosphere, good prices, and they were giving swing dance lessons while we were there. Very cool place, I'd highly recommend it to anyone cruising through. One of the few remaining route 66 diners around.

“Cheeseburger”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

While in Flagstaff I was anxious to try out this diner that had been recommended to my by a cousin. I was not disappointed!
The bacon cheeseburger was one of the best that I have eaten. The atmosphere did not disappoint either.

“Fun. Relaxing. Tasty. Refreshing. Fabulous Milkshakes”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

After our second day at the Grand Canyon, we planned to drive back to Flagstaff (where we were staying) to have dinner at the Galaxy Diner. Although the drive was about 90 minutes, it was a great choice to have dinner at the Galaxy.

Located right on the classic Route 66, it is a 50’s style American Diner. The walls are covered with photos of movie stars and celebrities. The decor includes jukeboxes, T-Bird replicas, and formica counters. There was a musician playing 50’s and 60’s tunes on a quiet electric guitar, keeping the mood relaxed. The service was very prompt, friendly, and efficient -- our waitress kept track of all we ordered without a pad, and without a single mistake!

The highlight was the milkshakes. They have an amazing variety of over 100 milkshakes on their menu, and if you can’t find one you like, tell them and they’ll make you a custom shake. All five of us had a different shake, and they all were excellent. For dinner we had four burgers and a BLT. Everything was cooked just right! The meal was a hit all the way around.

Galaxy Diner is a fun, relaxing, tasty, refreshing stop in Flagstaff that I would strongly recommend.
