Great 50-70s decorations and music. Within walking distance of the Sheraton and convention center and next door to a super market. We enjoyed two excellent breakfasts with excellent service.

Very poor tasting food. Ordered a basic "classic" breakfast: 2 eggs, sausage, white cheese, and patacónes (fried plantains patties); the sunnyside up eggs were over cooked to solid throughout; the patacones tasted like fried starch patties; without asking me, they substituted a hot dog for...More

The everything but the music was 50's themed. My kids thought their burgers and milkshakes were great. Their french fries were crispy. Prices were fair. Great place to get your junk food fix. I highly recommend the Bacon Cheeseburger.
