Found this place on TA and decided on lunch here. Cool, old diner vibe with Route 66 theme. The menu has a lot of good options to choose from. The staff was very good. We had a burger and a sandwich, and both were very...More

This is usually a favorite--charm, roadside atmosphere, and great food. All that is still present, but the menu doesn't have accurate prices. We ordered an item, were charged more for it than was listed. A small thing, but disconcerting. They said the price had gone...More

We had nice dinner there. Classic Diner with authentic atmosphere. The food was good. I had mushroom soup and burger. The portions were generous. The server was polite and helpful.

We ate here at lunchtime on a Monday. The service was good. The food was good. The onion rings were hand dipped and fresh. The milkshakes were good. The decor is VERY cool. It's worth a trip if you're in the area.

Great lunch stop on the way out west! I've told my daughter about the old diners, but there are so few remaining! We've been to one other one, so this was a treat! They were able to seat us quickly, get our food out hot...More

I agree with other reviewers; this isn't particularly impressive food, but maybe back in the 50's we thought this was worth eating! The atmosphere is really the only thing making it a place to visit, especially if you care about what you're eating...More

The shakes are great, the food is a little above average. The service was great. The decor is as you would expect for a 1960's diner look.

I was slightly disappointed. Although I knew that it wouldn't have fine cuisine, the menu was fairly limited. The atmosphere was fun though.
