This place has been around for a loooong time. They have breakfast prices that reflect that and if you pop in early morning, you will feel the welcoming small town atmosphere. In the summertime, vintage car shows are held here.

Great little diner (literally), brings you back to the old times. Nicely themed with 50s style decor. Food portions were generous, especially if you get the double burgers. I had the double mushroom burger, and my wife had the mozza burger. Only a few bucks more than your typical fast food joint, I would call this more of a upscale... More

Excellent burgers, fries and shakes. What more do you want from a diner? Fun atmosphere but get here early on a weekend because there aren't too many tables. Great spot to pick up picnic fare on a nice day before you head into Bowness Park.

We as a family love going to Angels anytime of the year get a burger and fries with one of their milkshakes. It's also treat when you get to see some the classic cars that hang out there sometimes.

We were in the NW and needed lunch, and stopped by Angel's Drive In. This is a classic diner, lots of burgers, etc. The decor is wonderful, with the black checkered floors, red upholstery, neon lights. For anybody who is mobility restricted, the downstairs bathrooms could be an issue, so a caution here. The place is starting to show its... More

This little diner takes you back in time. The atmosphere is what you would see in the old movies. There are booths for four to sit inside (there is a picnic table area outside for those nice days). You head up to the front to place your order and are given a number. The service was friendly and helpful. You... More

Great burgers and fries. A place with character and 50s themes. Small worn out dining area but friendly staff and a popular hang out on sunny warm evenings.

Great diner-style burgers, fries, shakes, etc. friendly staff and busy as all get-out, so we aren't the only folks who liked the food. Great burgers and fries.

It was a walk down memory lane for me, a boomer of the fifties, who still remembers slipping a coin into the juke box while waiting for a hamburger, fries and a milk shake in similar places in years gone by. Here you can sip while indulging in a bit of nostalgia, although I have to admit, while I eagerly... More

Real old time drive in diner. Not modern and slightly scruffy but that is part of the charm. This isn't a super sanitised chain restaurant, it's a family run place with great burgers and fries. Juke boxes on the tables. Great fun. Stop here if you get the chance. Highly recommended bit of nostalgia.
