Average diner food in a roomy cafe crowded with 50s-60s memorabilia. Lots to look at while waiting for your food. Note to servers: Don't mumble, and don't address an older woman as "man" (really, he did not say ma'am). Note to the kitchen: Great onion rings, but serve them with ranch, not Italian, dressing.

30 dollars will get you a corn dog, a very small amount of fruit (even for kids standards), a Steakums sandwich with unmelted kraft singles (supposed to be a Philly cheese steak), some okay chicken strips, and onion rings and fries that were not worth finishing (if you knew my hubby and onion rings, you too would be in shock). The waitress was friendly enough and did her job well. The place is cutesy and was clean. But the food is not worth it. Any fast food place would have done better, faster, and cheaper. Sad. This location would have so much potential.

Very fun place to eat. All sorts of memorabilia to see and great rock and roll classics playing in the background. The food was just mediocre, but be sure to have ice cream. Large servings with lots of toppings. Waitstaff was very friendly and seemed to really enjoy their job.

This place is exactly what we were looking for on our Route 66 drive! We wanted authentic greasy 50's diner food and atmosphere & that's exactly what we got. The inside and outside has the authentic 50's diner look. We ordered burgers & fries with milkshakes and it was great. Exactly what you would expect. The waitress was really nice too.
My only complaint would be it was really dirty which is not what you want from a place you are eating at. Not dirty like all over tables and floors but around windows and baseboards. It is in need of a really good deep, deep cleaning.

This place was a blast! A real American diner that for us Brits was like stepping into a movie or TV sitcom (where was the Fonz?). The best thing was that this was the real deal on Route 66, not some place made up to look real. We thought the food was good and assume others did as well, as it quickly filled up with locals.
