Such a wonderful place for a yummy breakfast! If you are watching your waste line don't go here 😊 This is sinful dining at its best!! Be prepared for a loooooong wait though. Small inside not a lot of seating!

Great food great price. Just like the 50's cash only plz. Staff was very nice. I've been a couple of times. Its all done up of course in the 50's garb. So for a flashback in time & great food. So fire up the Daloren & fly on in.

There are great choices on the menu. Service is excellent. Food was OK, nothing special. I think it is way too pricey.

Had a simple, but delicious grilled cheese with red onions. The sodas were huge. The service was good.

We found the 50s diner on trip advisor so we thought we would try it. Definitely a place a lot of locals go too. The waitress was very personable and efficient. The food came quickly also. Everything was good except I felt like the home fries were boiled not friend. They were mushy and bland. But besides that everything else... More

The first thing that strikes you is - the line of people waiting to get in. Certainly there is a reason. The food is delicious! We came at 11, were seated about 11:20 and ordered breakfast. My companion had strawberry French toast - thick pieces, perfectly prepared and smothered with strawberries (previously frozen). She declared them excellent. My Greek omelette... More

Sat for breakfast and Ordered a cheeseburger that comes with fries and was told couldnt have fries but could have fried potatos (sauteed ) instead.

I have been here many times on weekdays and occasionally on the weekend. This is a very good dinner with typical fare. While nothing stands out as exceptional, they do the basics very well. I often meet people here for business breakfasts on weekdays when there is no lines. On a weekday they do not rush you out and sometimes... More

Great breakfast at a reasonable price. We got there early one Saturday morning and had a delicious hearty breakfast. It fills up fast so plan on waiting if you go midmorning. Food was solid and everything was hot and quick to come to the table. Portions are huge!

Thank blazinglady
