Excellent Breakfast! As good as it gets for the price! And they offer Egg Beaters® for those looking for non-cholesterol diets.....few, if any, restaurants still offer it. Nothing fancy...just a good breakfast meal.

Had dinner with family as part of our visit to California to see daughter. This place was brilliant, motorcycles hanging from ceiling and all 50s style. Good burgers and really nice shakes. Very popular place, will definitely go back on our next visit.
