“Terrific breakfast in a vintage 50s-style diner”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Big menu, lots of good selections, price was right.
Coffee was mediocre, tasted like their unit needed a good cleaning.
We'll eat there again when we are in the area, for sure.

“Classic 50s Diner”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

The food was good, a nice breakfast. Service was fine. The one thing that could be improved was that it was a little messy. For example, tables nearby went uncleaned during the entire meal, newspapers in array.

It wasn't busy, but we had to wait a few minutes before being seated, not sure why.

“Will not go back.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Service was terrible. We waited 45 minutes for a burger. Hardly warm. Side pickle looked old. Place is unkempt and needs a lot of work. They stopped seating people because the kitchen was so slow and it wasn't that busy. We weren't asked for more coffee until we were about done. Won't go back.

“A blast from the past on route 66”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

When you look at the outside you think Naw. I don't want to eat here. When you get in the building it is a totally different place. It is one of the surviving Stainless Steel restaurants built in the US. The outside is nothing special but the inside, now that is a different story. It has a 25 foot long stainless counter, stainless walls, center piece in the ceiling and booths all around the outside. They have one of the coolest jukeboxes I have ever seen and the old selectors in every booth. Don't forget to have a milkshake. They make them from hard ice-cream, real fruit and are the yummiest. One of the best breakfasts in Flagstaff. Don't miss this place. It is not on any of the route 66 lists. Don't miss this one! Saturday nights is Rock-a-Billy night with sock hop and old cars. If we knew about it we would have been there.
