If you want to feel like you're back in the 60's this is for you, right down to the car in the back of the restaurant. While the portion size is huge the food was still good. Probably best to go here very hungry. I...More

A great 50/60's diner with good ambience and decor. Food was ok, very large portions, quick service, not that friendly or attentive staff.

It's a diner so -- go for diner food here. Burgers were very good. Add a shake or a root beer float and enjoy the view. Service is great and the food is fun and hey, there's half a car in the place.
