And I mean real 50's. I don't believe this place has been remodeled since that time. The burgers are nice greasy fare from that time period. Heaven on a bun! Fries were crispy on the outside and soft inside. Perfect!!! Prices also look like they are from times past. Absolutely would go back.

Cheap eats, good service and friendly atmosphere. You can always find a crowd here after the game (South Columbus High School is 7 minutes away). Burgers are king at Coleman's. While Coleman's is not a "drive-in", it is a great place to order takeout, dine in or just sit & chat with friends.

But for what you pay, you get some pretty killer food. Quality, made-in-house, fast service. Wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. But if I'm in the area, I'd definitely stop in.

Great homemade burgers and fries with quickest service ever! Southern sweet tea was perfect. Don't blink you might miss the location but it's worth searching for.

The place has been around for years. Very good food. Hamburgers and hotdogs are good. The bacon/lettuce on toast is awesome.

Great local place, fun and friendly atmosphere. Will definitely return for a bite to eat. If you're searching for good old burgers or hot dogs then this is the place to go. No frills, just good food in a 50's style diner. Definitely a place where the locals go for a snack.

WOW! This is cheap, delicious food! The service is great, too. Their sweet tea is delicious along with their homemade fried pickles. It looks like a hole in the wall with a 1950's diner feel. Definitely recommend if you're traveling through!

Reminiscent of the 50s, an old fashioned diner with great food, a place where the "after the game" crowd heads for. And it has been a mainstay for many, many years... at least 60 years. The name has changed a few times, but it's still the place where hungry people want to gather. Place your order, grab a cold drink... More

If you're hungry for hot dogs, cheeseburgers or chicken tenders, then this is a place that provides this kind of food. The place is very out dated, food is okay, service is okay and the price is fair. It's not my first choice of places to eat.
