I came here expecting a filling hot breakfast and received it! I got the Corned Beef Hash with pancakes and it was amazing! Too bad I couldn't finish it but I can vouch that I left stuffed and happy!

I had heard from others that they like this restaurant so we decided to try it for Sunday morning breakfast a few weeks ago. The special was Lemon Custard Blueberry pancakes with eggs and bacon. The eggs were ok, the bacon undercooked and the pancakes were awful - I should have taken a photo of the "lemon custard" that was... More

Stopped in for lunch. Nice little 50's style diner. Interior decorations were fun - car hoods/trunks, memorabilia from the 50's, Elvis/James Dean/Marilyn Monroe/Lucy, etc. My travel partner ate breakfast for lunch, which he loves to do, and wasn't disappointed. My burger and fries were good, and had reasonable portions. I din't leave stuffed to the gills, but satisfied. We would... More

This is a fun place visually, reminiscent of car hop days, lots of retro cultural displays. We stopped for breakfast on the road. I ordered 2 medium poached eggs and bacon with white bread toast. This was $7.25, hash browns would be $1.60 extra so I passed on them. I think at $7.25 something so basic as hash browns should... More

We were in the mood for this old timey diner-style food. The ambiance is 50's style and has some wall hangings that will make for good conversation pieces if you are of an age to reminisce. Got to sit in the pink Chevy trunk/booth conversion which was fun. If you are looking for a TV to watch, you won't find... More

The place is interesting and the food was good. I was there on a Saturday for lunch and it was really busy but service was fast. Worth a try.

The mural out front and shiny hoods and tails of 50s autos is engaging and cool in a kitschy kind of way. The food left much to be desired. The salad bar was sparse and while reasonable as a meal add on I can't believe anybody pays full price for it as a stand alone. I ordered the fried cod... More
